Beat the Back to School Rush

blog-pics-b22

The last two weeks of July and the whole month of August are often seen as the quietest time of year in the property industry.

As a vast proportion of the UK’s population make a dash to the coast or jump on a plane to chase the sun the market goes quiet.

Many people thinking of selling their homes wait until September before calling in agents to give them valuations.

However, there’s a very strong case for making plans for your property while the sun shines and before the back to school rush.

We always recommend people call us in before September. Why? Well to get your property ready for market isn’t a five minute job.

To do it properly, like we do at Cooper Adams, takes a little bit more time. A professional photographer needs to visit and capture your home in its best light.

Floor plans and accurate descriptions need to be drawn up and uploaded on the all powerful property portals. Interested buyers on our database need to be notified. Do all of this before September and your property will have an edge.

By having your property ready to be marketed from the 1st of September you will be two to three weeks ahead of people putting their homes on the market after the summer break.

This can be the difference between your home standing out or being just one of many hitting a crowded market once the kids have gone back to school.

Please feel free to give us a call today and beat the post holiday sales rush.

It was like a pig sty

blog-pics-b9

The headline for this blog isn’t an announcement that we’ve moved into selling farms or rural properties.

And it isn’t a reference to the state of my office desk as we keep a tidy, organised and efficient ship at Cooper Adams and, for the record, our desks are spotless.

No, ‘it was like a pig sty’ was a quote from a potential buyer when asked for feedback on a property he had recently viewed.

Although a little harsh his response was merited and raised a serious point.

I know it can be difficult to keep on top of the housework, especially if you have children and / or a busy lifestyle. But when your property is on the market it’s potentially the difference between selling your home or not.

No viewer wants to navigate their way through an obstacle course of old socks, empty cans, toys scattered on the floor and last week’s newspapers gathering dust.

Having your dirty saucepans, overflowing laundry basket and an unmade bed on show might make your property unique but it sure isn’t a unique selling point.

I’m not suggesting properties need to be surgically clean, but a quick tidy up every day could be the most valuable housework you ever do.

After all unless you live on a farm a pig sty is never a good look.

Thanks for reading.
