Go Potty - It is said that first impressions last. If you property will allow for it, why not invest in some fragrant, colorful and attractive potted flowers or plants from a Kirkliston garden center. These will help to make you property look cheerful and attractive on first impressions.
Clean out the attic - dump all the rubbish. - Some applicants will want to take a peek in the attic space. If it is stuffed to the brim with stuff that has the appearance that it could well be left there then this may well be very off putting. Also, a attractive empty attic will give the appearance that it may have conversion potential.
Be Realistic About The Current Market - As with much of the rest of the U.K., the housing market in Kirkliston has seen better days. You need to be sensible with regards to the true asking price of your house if you desire a quick sale. This may be difficult, especially if you over-stretched yourself on your loan when you originally bought your property. Think about discussing your situation with your local Independent Financial Adviser, and with your agent to agree a suitable asking price for your property.
Scrub Up - Don’t be afraid to get out your favourite cleaning products and really get stuck into those tired areas of your property. The ’nearly new’ look of kitchen units, appliances and bathroom furniture will really go down well with Kirkliston buyers.

Food For Thought
Estate Agents Charge Rates Disambiguated
Many sellers are unaware of the disparate rates of commission that Kirkliston agents will charge for the sale of your home. It is a well established fact that not all Kirkliston estate agencies charge the same rates and there's a good reason for this - so don't make your selection of agency on price alone. A number of Kirkliston estate agents may quote you standard prices but upon appraising your house, could conclude that the property is more troublesome to sell than their typical properties because it's in a bad area or bad state of repair meaning more marketing costs and effort. Conversely, other estate agents may quote a lower than normal commission if they conclude that they can sell your house easily and with great speed. A number of Kirkliston agents may not have the overheads of larger agencies who have invested heavily in high street offices, top-level training for staff, sophisticated database systems and top-of-the-range marketing collateral and resources. That is not to say that cut-price commission rates will manifest in low quality customer service and professional standards because one can sometimes experience inadequate service when dealing with larger firms too. low price Kirkliston estate agents usually need a larger turnover of properties in order to trade profitably and they are therefore far less prone to be concerned with regards to securing the best price for their vendors. The final amount of the after sale proceeds in your bank account is clearly of greater importance than the percentage fee your Kirkliston estate agent has invoiced in commission charges.
It is important to know the extent of service an estate agent in Kirkliston will provide to you in respect of viewings to suit your requirements and convenience.
Some estate agents in Kirkliston 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.
