Getting your home tip-top

  • 2 July, 2020

Your home will certainly be more attractive to buyers with some general sprucing up. Larger projects such as garage conversions, loft conversions or adding a conservatory could reap high rewards if you have the time and money but even the small things can make a big difference. Improvements that create a sense of space & privacy will increase saleability. If you're making improvements to add value to your home be sure not to personalise the decor so it appeals to buyers.

Kerb Appeal - First Impressions Count

You only get one chance to make a first impression so make it count! Make sure the outside is welcoming. Tidy the garden, weed pathways & driveways, put wheelie bins out of sight if you can. Your front door will say a lot about the rest of the house behind it. Make sure it's clean, repaint it if appropriate, maybe renew the door number and doorknob. 


Giving your home a fresh lick of paint can give it a whole new lease of life and can be inexpensive. Keep to light neutral colours and avoid bold colours all together.


Try to look at your home through the eyes of buyers. There could be some little issues which you've been meaning to fix & although not deal breakers can give an overall negative feel such as; dripping taps, squeaky doors or floors, mouldy sealant in kitchens & bathrooms, limescale on kitchen & bathroom fittings, broken window handles and even blown light bulbs.

Kitchen makeover

Kitchens are often a focus for buyers, so it may well be the first thing they look to replace if they can't imagine living in yours. You may not be able to afford a completely new kitchen but there are smaller ways to improve what you have. Depending on your budget you could change cupboard doors or just the handles, change worktops, maybe renew the sink & taps. De-clutter and keep the worktops clear, this alone will make a difference.

Updating your bathroom

Bathrooms need to look fresh and clean. Re-grout tiles, paint the walls in a light neutral colour, clean away any limescale, replace taps, renew the shower curtain or replace with a new shower screen.

A loft conversion

To add real value consider a loft conversion, it's a safe investment & quite cost-effective. It's the easiest way to add a bedroom & maybe even an en-suite. This will immediately push your home up into another price bracket. Most loft conversions are considered permitted planning but always check with your local planning authority beforehand.

A garage conversion

Why not convert your garage into extra living space, particularly if you have alternative parking and use your garage for nothing more than storage.  Firstly, you will need to check with your local planning authority if you need planning permission or whether it will be classed as permitted development.

Tips for safe viewings

  • 18 June, 2020

Now that the property market is open again here in England, viewings can be carried out with a few safety measures in place to keep us all safe.  To save time, mix-ups or any disappointment here are a few tips for a successful viewing.

Virtual viewings/video tours

If available, this is a great way to get a feel for the property and be sure it’s worth seeing in person. You may be able to tell whether the house ticks the right boxes for you or not. If it doesn’t, you’ll save yourself and the seller time and trouble.

Confirming the health of sellers, viewers & staff

If you or anyone in your household has displayed any COVID-19 symptoms in the last 2 weeks you must notify us immediately so we can cancel the viewing.  You should not be out viewing or in public if this is the case.  When confirming a viewing with you we will also confirm the health of our staff member and the household of where the viewing is to take place.


You should wear gloves for the viewing if possible, if not, you should sanitise your hands immediately before entering the property and refrain from touching anything. Social distancing must be observed at all times and therefore it would be safer to limit to 1 person inside the property at a time.


Any questions about the property should take place outside, once the viewing tour has finished or over the telephone once you are back home.

Please read the Government’s advice here on staying safe during home moving.
