Agent Accompanied Viewings
Most agents in Kirkwall may give the option to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. The agent will big-up the house to viewers, drawing attention to the most attractive features. Most viewers are increasingly prone to tell an estate agent, than the property owner, what they dislike about a house. The result of this is that if you employ a Kirkwall agent, you are far more likely to receive honest feedback on what aspects of your house need dressing up to get a quick sale, at the highest value.

Have Realistic Expectations About Current Market Conditions - Like a lot of markets in the U.K., the housing market in Kirkwall has been better. You should be real with regards to the actual market value of your property if you desire a fast sale. This could prove to be difficult, especially so if you stretched too far on your loan when you originally bought your house. Consider having a chat about your circumstances with your local IFA, and with your estate agent to come to an agreement of a suitable market valuation for your house.
Make some coffee - Most people love the smell of brewing coffee, even if they don't like to drink it. Consider putting on some fresh coffee just before a viewing, it's sure to create a welcoming odour for those Kirkwall viewers!
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 Kirkwall property buyers.
De-Clutter - It’s your home in Kirkwall, you’ve lived there for years, it feels like part of you, and you love it. But if you’re selling, then it’s time to move out mentally! Try to pack away as much personal clutter as you can. Leave a few, favourite items out so that the house doesn’t feel like a Kirkwall hotel, but otherwise present your viewers with a blank canvas, somewhere that they can imagine making their own.
