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 Lofthouse garden center. These will help to make you property look cheerful and attractive on first impressions.
Animals in the gardens. - If you're marketing property in Lofthouse then you may want to look in your lawns for mess deposited by your own pets or neighbour's pets. Should your garden look like it's being used as a sandbox, then this can make an extremely bad impression on viewers. Don't forget to pick up after your own pets, and consider using anti-dog or cat measures to scare away and deter your neighbouring property's cats and dogs. Always make sure such countermeasures are not cruel.
Sort out your lighting. - A bad lighting scheme can very much undersell your Lofthouse property. Consider sorting your lighting out. Consult a specialist if you need to. Dark rooms can look small and poky. Rooms that are too bright can look harsh and unwelcoming. Very bright light will show up all marks, dirt, stains and dust.
Be particular about photographs. - Your estate agent (or you - should you choose to use the for sale by owner method) will be required to take photographs of the interior and exterior of your house. This is a must to have it marketed in an attention grabbing manner on the WWW, and in sales particulars. Make certain that every photograph shows off the house or living area to the very best possible extent. Also ensure that the angle and lighting produces a winsome and desirable image. Hide as much clutter as you are able to before photographing a room or exterior aspect - excess ornamentation will cause your interior to appear less roomy and messy. Avoid photos with your finger, dogs or stains in them!

Food For Thought
When will I have to pay money out?
As a seller, you will have to pay for a Home Information Pack before marketing can begin. Once you have secured a sale, your Lofthouse solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. The balance of the money from the sale will come to you on the day of completion. The solicitor will take their fee out at this stage, as will the Lofthouse Estate Agent. As a buyer, your solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. On Exchange of Contracts, you will be asked by your solicitor to provide 5% or 10% of the purchase price. On the day of completion, your mortgage money will come in to your solicitor who will pass it on to the seller.
Far Too many agents only communicate good news, which is quite painless to do. A reputable estate agent will to be in frequent contact with their sellers and should not be short in advising you if anything needs to be done to increase your chances of realising an expedient sale transaction. Make sure that the estate agent you choose to represent you in the Lofthouse locality is an honest communicator.
