to proceed. The outlook remains healthy, with realistically priced homes
selling within a reasonable timescale of being marketed.

For Sale Boards
Subject to your instructions we would erect one of our "For
Sale" boards placed in the most prominent position. In today's
market place it is important that every opportunity is taken to promote
the sale of the property with the aim of reaching the maximum number
of potential buyers.
Low Key Marketing Option
This means we will prepare a set of sales particulars for your property
with colour photographs. We will not advertise your property in the
paper or put up a for sale board. We will only offer your property to
selected people on our mailing list and make every viewer aware you
will only move if you find a suitable property to purchase.
Window Displays/Office Display
Your property will be displayed, with clear colour photograph within
our office window and internal display. We feel a good quality photograph
is one of the main reasons potential purchasers decide to view a property.
Over 72% of buyers start by looking for properties on the internet.
Your property will be advertised on one of the industries premier internet
sites, which has over 1,000,000 people visiting it every month. This
will expand the marketing of your property to a worldwide market.
We enjoy considerable exposure in the local media with coverage
in the local newspapers. This amounts to a circulation of over 50,000
per week. The publications are published weekly and your property will
be advertised on a regular basis. Our established contacts with the
local and regional press can gain further media coverage of an editorial
nature. The editorials have been proven most effective in the successful
marketing of properties.
The biggest criticism of Estate Agents is lack of feedback. Here
at Sylvan Estates we believe customer care is the single most important
factor. We have addressed this particular concern and as a result of
this we will give you regular updates. This will include all comments
made by prospective buyers, when your property is next to be advertised
and an overview of the property market. We will also discuss the proactive
approach that we will be undertaking in the forthcoming week in order
to generate further viewings to secure a sale on your behalf..
When your home goes on the market, you obviously want potential
purchase to see it at its best. Just remember, anyone looking around
your home will be picturing themselves living there. So, make it as
easy for them as possible.
Make sure your home looks tidy and inviting. Nobody expects it o be
like a show home, but keep the untidiness to a minimum.
Well-lit rooms always create a better effect.
The aroma of flowers etc - a little corny but effective.
The garden should be neat. Potential buyers will envisage themselves
pottering about in the flowerbeds..
Do all outstanding minor repairs. Too many DIY tasks for the new owner
could lead to a lower price being offered for the property.
Keep dogs out of the way for fear of intimidating the viewer. Kittens
and goldfish are acceptable.
When showing viewers around, don't forget to give them space.
