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.

Food For Thought
Agents Charge Rates Explained
Many vendors are unaware of the differing commission rates that Kirkcudbright agents will charge to sell your property. It is a known fact that not all Kirkcudbright agencies charge identical rates and there is a good reason why - so do not make your decision based on just the price. Some Kirkcudbright estate agents may quote standard prices but looking at your house, may arrive at the conclusion that the property is more troublesome to sell than their typical properties because it's in an undesirable area or bad state of repair meaning increased marketing costs and effort. Conversely, other estate agents may quote a smaller than normal rate if they conclude that they can move your house easily and with great speed. Some Kirkcudbright agents simply do not suffer with the running costs of larger agencies who have invested heavily in high street branches, top-level staff training, complex database software and top-of-the-range marketing materials and resources. That's not to say that cut-price commission charges will deliver poor customer service and professional standards because one can sometimes experience inadequate service when dealing with larger chain firms too. Cut price Kirkcudbright agents typically need a higher turnover of stock in order to trade profitably and they are as a result far less prone to be concerned with regards to securing the best price for their customers. The net amount of the post-sale proceeds in your pocket is surely of greater importance than the commission your Kirkcudbright estate agent has invoiced in commission costs.
How much time does the whole legal process take ?
This is perhaps one of our most regularly made queries and regrettably, there simply is no straight answer because it is dependant on many different factors. The most straightforward kind of sale is the one of an empty property to a buyer without a mortgage. This would likely take around six weeks to complete (from instruction to when the property is transferred). If the buyer needs a mortgage, this could add a few weeks to the time-frame. If the seller is additionally buying a property, this could add 2-4 additional weeks and maybe even more delay if there is a larger chain of related sales. Further delays could come about from misplaced paperwork, slow Kirkcudbright solicitors and sluggish buyers and sellers. An average completion time is about 10-14 weeks.
