For Sale Boards For maximum impact we would recommend our distinctive ‘For Sale’ board will market your property 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Prospective buyers often house hunt with area drive-bys so a distinctive signboard can be a good selling tool.

Personal Touch‌ Advertising Despite the increasing use of the internet the local newspaper still serves as an important source of prospective buyers. A prominent local advertising campaign is included within our fee structure. We have excellent relations with the editorial departments of the local press, often resulting in useful exposure within the property supplements. Internet Footprint We have our own successful website, all properties are uploaded to this within 24 hours of instruction! It is designed with our customers in mind, easy to use and to navigate round and provides prospective buyers with all the information they are looking for.

Just scan and compare! All our properties feature on the most popular property portals such as Internet exposure is now a key element in a successful marketing programme and we continue to see year on year growth with our internet initiatives alongside regular email marketing campaigns.

New Media and Texting Social networking provides a relevant and compelling marketing process for high tech purchasers. Accompanied Viewings All viewings are accompanied by our experienced and knowledgeable staff. Open House For some properties where we anticipate unusually strong demand we will recommend an Open House. It is a simple and effective means to ‘show house’ a property to a collection of viewers within a specified time on one set day.

Your home, our honour‌ Low Key Marketing

Co-ordinating your sale

Some customers prefer a more low profile approach to selling their home. With this in mind we can arrange for key applicants to view your property prior to full marketing and exposure. This popular service can generate valuable feedback and interest without the commitment of our high profile campaign.

Each appointment with a prospective purchaser is always followed up with honest, constructive feedback. Any offers on your property will be given verbally and in writing with details of the buyers current circumstances. Our dedicated team of staff are in constant communication with buyers, sellers, solicitors, other estate agents and building societies to ensure that the sale of your property runs smoothly.

Office Opening Hours Our office opens earlier and finishes later than any other estate agent in Poole, meaning we are open at times to suit you, our customer and prospective buyers. Our opening times are as follows: Monday to Thursday Friday Saturday

08:30 - 18:30 08:30 - 18:00 09:00 - 16:00

Accurate valuations Obtaining the best possible price for your property is an important factor in any move. Our experience and regular research for comparable evidence ensures your home is marketed at the right price, whilst attractive enough to achieve a sale in your preferred time scale. If you instruct us, we make certain every member of our team involved in the sale of your property has an in-depth knowledge of your home. This enables them to talk informatively to all prospective purchasers, whether over the phone, by email or at the property itself.

Legislation Property Sales are now governed by a raft of legislation; Money Laundering, Property Ombudsman, Office of Fair Trading, Trading Standards, Energy Performance Certificates. Our terms of business are fully compliant with all relevant legislation, which is ever changing, and we carefully steer our clients through it all!


Don’t just take our word for it…

I could not have asked for better service, would definitely go back to them again, and was very impressed by the professionalism of David Scott who dealt with me direct, as well as other members of staff. No doubt I would definitely use them again and after such an excellent service , would not go to a large chain of estate agents

Mrs E Crows

Mrs M Thrower

Preparation, preparation‌ Preparing your home for sale

Finish those little jobs!

First impressions are very important as your prospective purchaser will form an opinion within thirty seconds of drawing up outside your property, so make sure your garden and the approach to your house is tidy. A well kept garden usually looks larger and a fresh coat of paint on your front door and windowsills or even the door knocker can work wonders. Remember it is the first thing a viewer sees.

If you have time, do all the little jobs you have been meaning to do, but never got round to. From replacing the shower, touching up the paint work, fixing the dripping tap, dealing with a loose door handle or replacing the dud light bulbs. These are jobs that you don’t want your buyer to notice and wonder what else has been neglected.

Tidy up and de-clutter Some people manage to live naturally tidy lives but most of us require an incentive. An untidy room does not appeal to the discerning buyer so think about losing the cuddly toys, fridge magnets, kids drawings and family photographs to give a better impression of space and allow the prospective purchaser to visualise their own possessions there instead. Think neutral decor A bold or heavily themed room may deter buyers so if you really want to sell you need to get serious and appeal to someone else’s taste. It is quite amazing how much smaller dark rooms can look. Be fresh A well-aired room and fresh flowers can make a room feel more welcoming as can a warm home in winter. Clean, polish, ventilate and scrub and if necessary replace. If you have a dog consider taking them out for a walk during the viewings, remember not everyone likes dogs and some people have allergies - and it will not help your sale prospects if the dog starts to bark from the moment your viewers arrive until they leave.

Presentation Present rooms with the appropriate furniture. If you use the fourth bedroom as a study or spare room it may be worth staging it with a bed, particularly if the dimensions are such that the buyer may be skeptical. Give them solutions not problems. Likewise, a breakfasting kitchen would be better shown with a table and chairs in place. These are just suggestions to help ease the process of selling your home and are not in any way mandatory.
