Benjamin Wear – Winkworth Surbiton

Sort your paperwork. By collating all documentation from the outset, you'll shave weeks of time further down the line, as well as gaining a deeper understanding of the sales process. Also tell your agent about your move, so they get a 360 perspective and can offer you extra guidance.

Jamie Moore – Winkworth Poringland

Think practically. Before you start your search, put your home on the market. I've seen vendors disappointed in the past when they have lost their dream homes because they weren't prepared. Moreover, it makes potential buyers understand that you're serious about moving.

Dominic Cocklin - Winkworth Bow

Exclusive access to the property on completion is a good way of boosting appeal to a potential buyer. In 2019, I saw more properties sold chain-free than ever before. Buyers enjoy the ability to move into the property immediately upon completion, as well as a quicker conveyancing time.

Natasha Firman – Winkworth Tunbridge Wells

Don’t choose an agent purely on who gives you the highest price. Once you have a market appraisal, call your agent to discuss both this and their services. You need an agent that will work hard to get as many viewings as possible and follow up not only with applicants, but also with you.

Marc Wiehe – Winkworth Streatham and Herne Hill

Instruct your solicitor at the same time as you are starting to market your property. Many delays can be avoided, particularly on the sale of leasehold properties, if the solicitor has contacted the managing agents and is already in possession of the relevant information.

Lucy McKilroy – Winkworth Bath

I make sure I really know the property I am selling and ask the vendors for half a dozen things that they love about the house that I mention whenever I talk about the property to potential buyers. Oh, and forget baking and coffee, a few well-placed White Company candles always help!
