Why you should move out – before you move out!

Why you should move out before you move out!

Whether you’re the next Phil Spencer and can see past a dodgy looking décor in favour of the floor space and potential, or you’re looking for a home that is ready to move straight in, buyers from either end of the spectrum want to imagine their own family life in your house.

This chimes with what we are seeing, which is an uplift in buyer activity this month even compared to the first quarter in 2018. Sellers still need to beware agents deliberately over-valuing to win their business which one or two do routinely (we won’t name names!) as if the price isn’t accurate you simply won’t sell.
