Selling Tips

Scrub UpScrub Up - Don’t be frightened 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 Kirkwall buyers.

Will selling a property in Kirkwall need a Kirkwall conveyancing solicitor?Will selling a property in Kirkwall need a Kirkwall conveyancing solicitor? - Will selling a property in Kirkwall need Kirkwall conveyancing solicitor? This is an excellent question. Many people in Kirkwall may mistakenly think that they need a Kirkwall solicitor to do their conveyancing. The reality is this, that your conveyancing solicitor does not need to be local. Some Kirkwall solicitors choose only to deal with Kirkwall property transactions, or other properties very nearby. Other conveyancers will choose to handle transactions from all over the UK. Their quality of service will in no way be less than a local solicitor. It may well be better, as they specialize in conveyancing. It is also likely that their prices will be more competitive.

Do Simple JobsDo Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Kirkwall? If so, you may want to take a good, objective look around. How many small, simple jobs are there that you haven't bothered getting around to doing? The problem is that we become blind to the small flaws after a while (apart from the ones that annoy us), whereas an observant newcomer to your home will spot them straight away. We're talking about curling wall-paper, or borders just need sticking down; Marks on walls, that need wiping off; Dead flies or dust on a lamp-shade; Dirty windows; Old screw-holes in walls that need filling and touching up. Now is the time to put a day aside to do these little jobs, and help achieve the best price for you property.

Clean your windowsClean 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 Kirkwall property buyers.

Bolton Jones and Co

Everything happened smoothly. Our only criticism would be that we could not get in touch and talk one to one. I understand that he will have been busy but the estate agent and I both tried to contact him and never got through. On the other hand he did contact us when he needed to and nothing went wrong..
