Presentation – look at your house through buyers eyes: does the front door need a lick of paint? Does the front garden need a good weeding? Does the back bedroom need de-cluttering? Onwards & Upwards will advise on presentation - our most recent property sold in 6 hours! The vendors completed the list of jobs that we suggested and were rewarded with a very quick sale! We even have a professional house doctor on hand for more challenging homes.
Price – Valuing the property accurately in the current market will ensure you have a steady flow of prospective buyers. Onwards & Upwards use the latest technology to monitor the property market and combined with our local knowledge, we ensure a property is positioned in its correct price bracket. We will NOT over value your property to win your instruction… overvaluing does not help in any way. When buyers see a price reduction after a month or so - their first reaction is “what is wrong with that property?”
Promotion– Ensure your property looks at its best when the agent takes the photos. For instance, if an agent does not move the bins – shoot them! Only joking…get them back to retake the photos. At Onwards & Upwards our staff receive professional photography training. We also run Open days, we will conduct these for you and we achieved the full asking price at our most recent Open day.
When a property first comes onto the market, the first 4 weeks are the most important, Onwards & Upwards produce an “Individual Marketing Plan” to ensure we have all angles covered with special attention to the 3 P’s. The 3 P’s are critical, if one of them is ignored your property may just languish on the market, get them right and you could be moving sooner than you think.
