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 Kirkcudbright property buyers.
Tidy The Garden - Perhaps you are not much of a gardener, your lawn is un-cut and the whole place is looking rather messy! Well it’s time to get busy. A badly presented garden may well be off-putting to Kirkcudbright buyers. Cut the lawn, trim the edges and remove as much junk and clutters as you can. A few plastic pots filled with colourful flowers could really change the appeal of your property.
Sort out your lighting. - A bad lighting scheme can very much undersell your Kirkcudbright property. Consider sorting your lighting out. Consult a specialist if you need to. Dark rooms can look small and poky. Rooms that are too bright can look harsh and unwelcoming. Very bright light will show up all marks, dirt, stains and dust.
Molehills And Ants Nests - If your garden suffers from Mole Hills or ants nests, then take appropriate action to eliminate these pests (humanely, of course). These garden pests could be off-putting to Kirkcudbright property buyers.

Food For Thought
It is important to know the extent of service an estate agent in Kirkcudbright will provide to you in respect of viewings to suit your requirements and convenience.
Some estate agents in Kirkcudbright do not include accompanied viewings in their service so it’s important to establish whether an estate agent will accompany all viewings and what arrangements they make for evenings and weekends.
Apart from the obvious security issues associated with an unaccompanied viewing, it is only when agents accompany buyers around a property that they can they probe, listen and understand what the buyer is really looking for. Estate agents who have developed a good understanding of their buyers’ preferences are less likely to direct unsuitable viewers to your property.
Buy And Refurbish In A Risky Market
I question how many people got caught seriously in the downturn in the marketplace, when they purchased a property at what looked like a bargain value, spent considerable money improving it, in the vain chance of selling it on at a return. Very many, I'm convinced! The question is... is there still money to be made? How can the chance be minimized? When you spot a prospective property, go bring back a Kirkcudbright property agent, or more than one, and get hold of an specialist view. How much is the home in actual fact worth now? What would its value be if it was made up to a respectable condition? Get in a builder who is used to subbing out the numerous aspects of the renovation trade, and obtain a accurate estimate for the repair work. Now calculate your possible yield, and consider how unfavourably the marketplace would need to downturn to erase that yield, and land you in debt. Now you will have a satisfactory consideration of the risk. Don't forget... it's easy to start going above plan on the transformation. Make allowances for this! These are just some suggestions... not advice! Good luck!
