  • I used to work for an estate agent in an area which was struggling. The properties that sold were those that were decorated in neutrals and were clear of clutter, with tidy gardens. No patterned carpets, lime green curtains, toys scattered everywhere, garden run to weeds. Also, think about the photos taken & presentation by GSPC. Maybe time to think about new agents. Also check what the survey is showing; if the property needs repairs, do them yourself now. Buyers don't want the hassle. Price needs to be right: too high won't sell, but too low won't sell either. Good luck!

  • Go on Zoopla or RM. Is yours the cheapest 3-bed semi within 1/4 mile. If not, drop price so that it is.

  • Hi Bluethunder1970, What I find with things like this is that it is often the case that the marketing of the home is just not selling it all that well to potential buyers. You might want to try looking towards a new agent, even if it is just to give it a breath of fresh air and see if they can offer something new. Things you might want to focus on will include the likes of getting the pictures right. You need to paint the house in an honest light. Things like wide angle shots are often used to make rooms look bigger, but it's very obvious, and it will always put buyers off. You also want to make sure to promote perks such as links to buses and trains, nearby shops and other amenities, as these can be the difference between someone wanting to live there and not. Many thanks, Scott
