Clear out the loft - remove all the junk. - Some buyers will want to take a look in the loft space. If the loft is full of clutter that has the appearance that it could not be removed then this can be very off putting. Also, a nice empty attic-space will look like it may have the potential to be converted.
Open Some Windows - Consider opening some windows for a couple of hours before a viewing. If it's a hot stuffy day, the leave them open, if it's cold then close them. In either case, this should help to give the property a nice fresh feeling when sellers come to view.
Clean your windows - If your windows or mirrors are looking grubby, consider mixing some white spirit vinegar with a little water and washing up liquid, popping the mixture in a spray-bottle and giving your windows and mirrors a clean. (use this cleaning tip at your own peril!). The washing liquid will act as a de-greaser and the vinegar will act as an anti-foamer / streaker. Grubby windows or mirrors will create a bad impression on Kirkcaldy property buyers.
Shop around for a proactive Kirkcaldy estate agent - If you're putting your Kirkcaldy property on the market - then it's important to shop around before choosing your Kirkcaldy estate agent. The Internet affords the luxury of being able to read genuine customer feedback and reviews. For each agent in Kirkcaldy take the time to search the Internet and get a feel for what other clients are saying about them. You're looking for consistently good feedback. This should give you the confidence that they're going to do a good job for you, and get your property sold. If you come across bad feedback, then take the time to look at how old it is. Have been people been saying nicer things more recently? After all, if an agency had bad feedback in the past - and has improved, they could still be the best choice for you.

Food For Thought
What are searches?
As part of the process of purchasing your property, the solicitor you appoint will conduct searches on your behalf. (You must pay for these). The searches relate to the property you are buying - and check for various things. Is the current ownership of the property all in order? Is the seller in a legally sound position to do so? Is the environment OK (toxic ground, tree preservation orders, radon gas, flood-prone etc.). Is the land registered? What are the status of the mains water supply, drainage and sewerage? Are there mines or mining activity affecting the property? And so on. The purpose of the searches is to ensure that you are buying a property legally, and with no nasty surprises.
When choosing a sales estate agency it will be to your benefit to choose a sales agent who additionally markets property to let. Property letting agents have long term buy-to-let investment clients indefinitely registered in their database. These investment buyers buy regularly from that agent. They usually know that estate agent and they are prone to decide on purchases quickly and make fully-intentioned purchase offers. It is the preference of these investment buyers to buy via that agent simply for the reason that it is easy for them to rent out their new investment quickly after purchasing your property. Some Tenants additionally register to buy. Good quality rental agencies establish strong relationships with their rental clients and are in a good position to help them buy one of their own selling clients’ properties.
