Shop around for a proactive Knottingley estate agent - If you're putting your Knottingley property on the market - then it's important to shop around before choosing your Knottingley estate agent. The Internet affords the luxury of being able to read genuine customer feedback and reviews. For each agent in Knottingley take the time to search the Internet and get a feel for what other clients are saying about them. You're looking for consistently good feedback. This should give you the confidence that they're going to do a good job for you, and get your property sold. If you come across bad feedback, then take the time to look at how old it is. Have been people been saying nicer things more recently? After all, if an agency had bad feedback in the past - and has improved, they could still be the best choice for you.
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 Knottingley property buyers.
Be choosy about pictures. - Your agency (or yourself - if you choose to engage the for sale by owner model) will need to get photos of the inside and exterior of the house. This is a must to have it marketed in an attractive fashion on the Internet, and in sales handouts. Make certain each picture really promotes the house or room to the best possible. Also ensure that the angle and lighting makes for a winsome and desirable image. Hide as much junk and clutter as you are able to before taking photos of a room or exterior aspect - excess ornamentation will cause your rooms appear less roomy and messy. Exclude photos with your finger, pets or offensive posters in them!
Do Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Knottingley? 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.

Food For Thought
When a price is agreed for a property, what happens next?
If you have not already done so, you should instruct a solicitor immediately. You should then give the contact details to your estate agent. The estate agent will then write to all interested parties to get the ball rolling.
The UK Credit Crunch Hits The Housing Market Hard
The credit crunch has greatly reduced UK house prices. House prices have decreased drastically since summer 2008, when they were at their peak. They fell at their fastest rate for at least twenty five years. They have now begun to recover. This is still a good time for first time buyers to consider a purchase, but worrying for property owners who over-stretched their mortgage.
