Accurate valuation advice can be key to selling your home for the best price and in the right timescale. If you are asking too much, it will inevitably lead to no viewings or offers and the property will become stale before you know it. Of course, advertising too cheaply can often result in achieving a low sale price. The asking price needs to be right from the onset.
At Southgate Estates, we promise to always give honest and well researched advice. We spend time with our clients explaining how we have arrived at our valuation and make genuine recommendations on how to best market every home.
