Weed the garden - One of the first things a potential buyer will see when they arrive at your property is the garden. If the garden is scruffy then it will be a bad start, and make the wrong first impression. Pick up litter, cut the lawn and pull / kill any weeds that are growing in or around the path or patio areas. Consider hiring a pressure washer to clean up your path if it's looking really grubby.
Renew Scruffy Flooring - Linoleum flooring in bathrooms and kitchens can often look very ragged after years of use. It is inexpensive to replace. Consider renewing it if it looks worse for wear.
Shop around for a proactive Walton estate agent - If you're putting your Walton property on the market - then it's important to shop around before choosing your Walton estate agent. The Internet affords the luxury of being able to read genuine customer feedback and reviews. For each agent in Walton 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.
Spend Up To 1% - It is often advised that a seller should consider spending up to 1% of the sale value of the property on re-decoration, D.I.Y. and / or touching-up to achieve the best price. You should discuss this with a local Walton specialist adviser or Walton estate agent. A good Walton estate agent may be able to point you in the right direction.

Food For Thought
The UK Credit Crunch Hits The Housing Market Hard
The credit crunch has caused a large fall in UK house prices. Residential property prices have fallen drastically since summer 2008, when they peaked. They fell at their fastest rate for at least 25 years. They have however now started to recover. This is still a good time for a first time buyer to consider a purchase, but a worry for property owners who borrowed more than their property is now worth.
Buy And Refurbish In A Risky Market
I speculate just how many folks got caught seriously in the dip in the marketplace, when they purchased a house at what looked like a bargain price, spent considerable money doing it up, in the empty aspiration of selling it on at a return. A lot, I'm certain! The question is... is there yet wealth to be made? How can the chance be minimized? When you notice a would-be house, go bring back a Walton estate agent, or a few, and obtain an specialist estimation. How much is the house in reality worth at the moment? How much will it be worth if it was finished up to a respectable standard? Get in a builder who is familiar with subbing out the numerous aspects of the renovation trade, and pick up a accurate quote for the reconstruction work. Now calculate your likely revenue, and consider how severely the market would have to to decline to clear that return, and land you in arrears. Now you should have a realistic consideration of the risk. Don't forget... it's simple to start going over financial plan on the repair. Make allowances for this! These are just a few suggestions... not advice! Good luck!
