WHAT IS MY PROPERTY WORTH?
When selling a property there is always one question on everyone’s minds – what is my property worth? The first step when considering selling your property is to have our experienced Director Steven Lucas visit your home for a complimentary market appraisal. He will take time to discuss your objectives and plans, after which he will tour your home to understand the size, layout and key selling features. We then take into account the location, the general condition of the property, the potential, current market conditions, recent comparable sales, and our knowledge of what premium our buyers are paying for property in your area at that time. All of these processes help us to determine an accurate and realistic price for your home.
During your consultation, we will also discuss the next steps with marketing your property, including obtaining a Home Report. Our aim is to over-deliver both in terms of service and sale price, therefore we will suggest possible improvements to your home that will help present it at its best in order to create the most successful marketing campaign. This may include speaking with our contacts at Sienna Interiors who have helped us achieve some astonishing results.
If you are considering a move, or are simply curious as to how much your property is worth in the current market, please contact us anytime to arrange a no obligation, complimentary consultation.

PREPARING YOUR HOME FOR SALE
Selling your home is one of the most talked about things in the UK and sparks interest in everyone. Preparing your home for sale is vital if you want to achieve a timely sale and for the best possible price. That’s why our TV screens are filled with a plethora of property shows such as Grand Designs, Location Location Location, Million Pound Properties and Phil Spencer: Secret Agent.
Many of these shows focus on properties that would struggle to sell in their current state and require renovation or improvement to maximise their return. Transforming the look and feel of a property, along with exceptional marketing, can spark considerable interest which will ultimately boost the final sale price.
At Vanilla Square we decided to test this theory to maximise some of our clients’ sales using the skills of a House Doctor from Sienna Interiors to improve several properties; the results were spectacular. Clients appear to be stretching their budgets when a property is presented in show home condition. You don’t always need to spend a fortune and it can often be some clever staging tips with your own furniture and possibly some fresh paintwork. Some of the examples below show the difference it can make to a sale and we would happily guide you through the process if this strategy was of interest.
These examples highlight the difference dressing your home for sale can make
