tips-for-sellers-2-(1).jpgWhen your property is offered for sale you will only get one opportunity to maximise your sale price and we only get one opportunity to do the job properly.

A correctly priced property will typically sell within 2 - 6 weeks of going to the market. You should allow two weeks before this to prepare for sale and for us to prepare all the marketing materials.

There are numerous different ways to offer your property for sale, either by Auction, For Sale by Negotiation, or with a price. Our representatives will explain the difference between each one and help you select the method  that best suits your needs and your property.

Presentation of your property is a critical factor in achieving the highest possible price.
