Showing your home

We can help you to prepare your home for viewings by offering guidance or give you access to approved maintenance contractors. Plus, we are very happy to accompany everyone who wants to view your home.

Here are some of the tips to consider before anyone visits. 

These steps should be taken early before marketing photos are taken and maintained throughout the selling process.
