Tips For Selling Your Property

First Impressions Really Do Count

Presentation of your home both inside and out can make all the difference. Add a fresh coat of paint. Tidy the front garden and clean your front door. The inside of your house should be as clutter-free as possible. The kitchen and bathrooms are key selling points, so make sure they are tidy and presentable. Check all the light bulbs are working and fix squeaky doors. List all the non-obvious things that make your property attractive, like a particularly sunny spot in the garden, friendly neighbours, and good local shops. It's the small things that can really help create the best impression.

Access For Viewings

It's important that we can let people view your property at a time that's convenient for them. If it helps, feel free to leave a set of keys with us so we can organise accompanied viewings, leaving you free to get on with other commitments. Rest assured, we will sell the best features of your house on your behalf - it's in our interests as much as yours.

Be Patient

Don't worry if the first few positive viewings don't lead to a sale. It doesn't mean there is anything wrong with your home or the way it is presented. However, do be open to any feedback from viewings and be prepared to listen to ideas to make your property more appealing.

Be Open-Minded

You don't have to accept the first offer, and it is worth discussing with us whether we think more could be achieved by waiting. On the other hand, do think about what criteria might prompt you to consider offers below your asking price, such as cash buyers or chain-free buyers; a swift sale may save you money in the long run.

Be Prepared To Negotiate

A survey may reveal repairs that are needed which could affect the price a buyer is willing to pay. If you are concerned about such potential issues, we can help arrange an independent survey for your peace of mind.

Let’s Move

The excitement of accepting an offer is the start of transferring your property from your ownership to your buyer. This takes several months. Make sure you have pro-active legal representation (we can help get you quotes to organise this), so that you can move to the stage of exchanging contracts and setting a completion date as efficiently as possible.

Customers Say


I am so pleased with the service we received from Alexander Jacob. From start to finish the support we received from them was impeccable. We felt like our move was important to the whole team and Aaron and Emily in particular were excellent. Calls were never missed, and they would always follow through with the things they said they would do. Communication is excellent and efficient and they made the stressful process of moving that much easier. Couldn’t recommend them more.
