Shifting Bricks

Is your property already up for sale or are you about to put your property onto the market?

Why not make sure that your property benefits from the best marketing possible?

The Shifting Bricks© service is designed to support, not to replace, the excellent service you should expect to receive from your Estate Agent. Working with me, you still retain control of all aspects of the marketing including your choice of Estate agent.

The difference is that you gain the invaluable benefit of relevant advice and support from an experienced property expert with over 35 years of experience, behind the scenes, throughout the process.

Comments from recent clients

house-prices-dropping

Leaving a property on the market for weeks with no real buyer interest is likely to have a significant negative effect on the eventual sale price. Timely advice from me can help you avoid this happening

Turtle on its back

This is often caused by poor initial advice or inappropriate marketing made worse by a breakdown in communication between seller and agent. Don’t let this happen to you.

Some typical questions, challenges and issues that I can help you with

Apples

Is my home ready to go on the market?

Am I giving away real value and profit to our buyer? Could I make our house more valuable? Should I get planning permission for the extension first?

How do I choose an Estate agent?

Which agent is likely to be more successful? Do I choose a one office firm, a regional or national network? Online or a High street agent? Do I choose more than one?

How do I handle Estate agents ‘valuation’ visits?

When should the agent come and value? How do I compare each estate agents opinion?

How do I decide what price to ask for my home?

Do I go with the highest valuation? How do I make sense of their comparable evidence? Should I quote a ‘fixed’, ‘guide’, ‘in excess of’ or ‘in the region of’ price?

How do I evaluate the agents marketing contract?

Will I be able to sack them easily if they don’t perform? What is a Sole agency? Multiple agency? Joint sole agency? Sub agency? What are ‘Sole Selling Rights’?

What commission fees should I agree to pay?

How high or low should they be? What extras included in the fee? Do I have to pay if they don’t introduce my buyer? Do I offer a success incentive?
Planning house prices

How well will my property be presented?

How important are property web portals?

How important are property web portals?

Good write up or lazy incomplete web portal entry? Should I opt for a Premium or Featured Rightmove listing?
