I had an excellent service from Craven and in particular Ben. He has very thorough knowledge of the local market which helped me to achieve the maximum potential in my house sale. He was always punctual and was extremely easy to reach whenever I require even during the busy time. Throughout the sale process he updated me regularly and conveyed my updates to the buyer too. That really helped me to pay attention on important tasks on my side and to escalate to conveyancing solicitors where require. Highly recommend Ben and Craven if you would like a stress-free house sale.

Ben and his team helped facilitate the cash purchase of my property. The process was fast and hassle free in a period in the housing market that has been hard work. I couldn't recommend Craven and Ben more highly.

2. Correct valuations

We cannot express how much an accurate valuation impacts the effectiveness of a property sale. Even through Christmas, it is just as essential to receive an accurate valuation on your property. Ensuring you are not selling your home too short or over asking for the property.

3. Keep your home tidy and clean!

Many people viewing homes during Christmas need a sense of how cosey your property actually is. If your home is untidy and a mess, it can seem extremely off-putting for potential buyers. Having a well-kept home can be the extra push needed to secure your perfect offer.

4. Don’t hesitate to be festive!

Get those Christmas decorations up! Although you plan on leaving the property, having a sense of festivity can make your viewers feel far more festive and jolly during your exchange. A happy and positive house viewing is far more likely to result in a sale rather than a negative, morbid experience.

5. Stay flexible!

Everyone is extremely busy during the Christmas period, ensuring you remain as flexible as possible for your viewings is a great way to seem helpful and approachable to potential buyers. Working around a viewer will help build a rapport with them, a pleasant experience is always essential, especially during the cold nights.

6. Do the correct research!

Working with the best estate agent is a great way to really target your prime audience.

A good estate agent should be able to identify potential marketing leads, help with valuations, advise on potential purchasing categories and help you do the initial research into selling your property with the best outcome.

7. Be prepared to move!

There is nothing worse than securing a sale, and then your buyers back out due to elongated transition periods due to you not knowing where or what to do.

Here at Craven and company, we can help you each step of your journey. Ensuring you receive the best support possible helps your experience be a breeze.
