“SELECT THE RIGHT AGENT FOR YOU!”James Baldry, Managing Director Residential Sales 

I can’t express how important this is! Always look at who has sold the most in your area, has the best marketing and can expose your property. Make sure you like the person you meet, you will be working with them for the next few months!

“DON’T RELY ON THE NEWS TO TELL YOU HOW MUCH YOUR HOME IS WORTH!”  –Dominic Barnes MNAEA  Director – Ash Vale

We are constantly bombarded with conflicting reports of house prices rising or falling, and it can be hard to know which one to believe. Speak to our local agents who can give you the right price for your home and their reasons of why they are giving you that figure!

“GET ORGANISED AND DECLUTTER” – Frank Cooper​ MNAEA Associate Director – Aldershot

Prepare for viewings! Keep rooms tidy, stay on top of the vacuuming and clear dishes from the draining board. This will demonstrate that your home is an attractive, functional home. Leaving your stuff lying around may create the impression that there is not enough storage!

“YOU HAVE 11 SECONDS TO WOW A BUYER, MAKE THEM COUNT!” – Laura Scanlan Executive Client Manager – Aldershot

Most buyers form their first impressions within seconds of walking through the front door, spruce up your front garden and tidy up the shoes cluttering up your porch or hallway!

“BRAG ABOUT YOUR BROADBAND!” – Aaron Milligan​ Manager- Farnham

With working from home being so popular now a fast internet connection is really important to some buyers! Just mentioning the presence of fibre optic cables in your area could be enough to encourage buyers.

“DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE LITTLE THINGS!” James MacPhee FNAEA​ Associate Director – Farnborough

With more choice for buyers it’s really important to remember the detail. Chances are buyers will be nit-picking as they will look at a number of properties and weigh up their options So get around now to those annoying little maintenance jobs to eliminate the negatives.

“WHILST YOU MAKE THINK YOUR PET IS ADORABLE, OTHERS MAY NOT!!”  Iain Weathrall King FNAEA Executive Client Manager – Frimley

Animals can also detract attention away from your home, try leaving them with a neighbour or family member to ensure potential buyers are focussed on your home and not the inhabitants.

“DON’T LOSE INTEREST, REFRESH AND TRY AGAIN”  Dale Ballard​ Manager – Fleet

If your home has been on the market for longer than you expected it is probably down to the price or your agents’ marketing strategy, ask our agents for advice on any changes you should make, get new photos, new marketing text and, crucially, a new price!

“CHOOSE THE BEST BUYER FOR YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES!”  Will Rosten MNAEA​ Partner – Orchard Camberley

Once the offers are on the table we will negotiate on your behalf to get you THE BEST PRICE for your home! You will also need to consider who is the most reliable buyer depending on their current position and also making sure both yours and the buyer’s timescales match up! This is what we excel at and are always there to help and guide you all the way through!
