Are you getting ready to sell during lockdown?
We have a few TOP TIPS for those who are looking to place their property on the market, now, or after the Government measures are lifted.
1. Get Advice.
Speak to our mortgage advisors to find out if you have an early repayment charge and if your current mortgage is the best one for your next house.
Use the lockdown to finish off and/or repair all those niggly bits you have been putting off. Such as tightening loose door handles, finishing off paint patches, and filling in any holes in walls etc.
3. First Impressions.
Make sure your kerb appeal is as good as it can be. There is nothing worse than a seeing an unloved garden gate, an overgrown lawn, flowerbed of weeds, and an unpainted front door.
4. Green Fingers.
We aren’t saying re-landscape but now is the time to make the most of this weather. Perhaps de-weed, wash down patios, mow the lawn and dismantle unused Children’s play equipment.
Deep clean your home including cupboards, lofts, sheds and garages, and store away any unnecessary items. You want to show as much space and give as much access to the property to potential buyers as possible. It also gives you a head start on your packing once you’ve sold.
Once you have completed your 'To-Do' list, why not arrange a video call valuation with us? We can give you further market advice and help create your selling plan.
Following the Government advice on Monday 23rd March, we have taken the decision to temporarily closed both of our offices to the public. However, all staff are still busy working behind the scenes from home.
We are still contactable on our office telephone numbers as well as via email.
All booked property viewings and valuations have been suspended and will be rescheduled to a convenient time once we are informed it’s safe to do so.
We are adapting quickly to a virtual world, including adding some video tours to our marketing, and many of our services are still available. Please email us on email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for us to help you further.
Like most business’s we have been monitoring the government updates and think it’s time to share our plans.
We are happy to share that we are business as usual, and aim to keep it that way.
We have made a few changes and requests to keep our wonderful team, clients and house hunters all safe.
We would like to request that if you are required to visit us in one of our offices that you book a specific appointment. For any property viewings and valuations, would like to request that only essential people attend the appointment to keep the number of people in a room as low as possible.
We have put in place extra cleaning routines during our working day at both Brentwood and Chelmsford offices.
All measures are not permanent and we will aim and remain open for you until such time the Government advises differently.
Planning has already commenced for staff to be able to work remotely and remain fully contactable by phone and email during office hours should we no longer be able to have the offices open to the public.
Being a small and independent company, your continued support and understanding through these challenging times really will be appreciated along this journey, and we will of course let you know of any further developments as and when they happen.
