Our Guide To Selling Your Home

Thinking about selling your property? Here’s everything you need to know.

1. Make sure your finances are in order.

2. Make your home look fantastic.

Pretend you are a potential buyer, viewing your property for the first time. Take a walk through your home and make sure that each room is clean, tidy and free from clutter.

You don’t need to begin a complex renovation project, but our top tips would be; a fresh carpet is always worth the money and remember that your front door is always the first and last thing the buyer sees.

3. Choose your estate agent.

That’s an obvious one — Ashtons your independent, local estate agents of course!

4. Agree upon a marketing strategy for your property.

Ashtons will advise on the best possible marketing strategy and price to promote your property for sale. We will work with you every step of the way to make sure your property is getting the greatest exposure using both traditional and online marketing efforts.

5. Preparation of your properties marketing literature.

The photographs, floor plans and description make up the way the market sees your property, and together they form an important document when selling your home. At Ashtons we pride ourselves on attention to detail and our ability to create professional images of your property both online and in hard brochure format.

6. Receive your offers and agree a sale.

Our professional team of estate agents at Ashtons will take care of your viewings and negotiate the offers you receive. It is our job to achieve not only the best possible price for your property, but also the buyer that fits your requirements and timescale.
