Selling tips

When putting your property on the market, it’s important that you try to impress the buyer as much as possible. The initial window of opportunity you have is actually much shorter than you would expect because after two weeks of marketing, a property will have been exposed to 90% of the current batch of buyers. These people are all registering with us to find their dream homes or investments, so it’s crucial to get it right… right away.

Just one of the ways to achieve instant impressions is through property styling. Once the standard practice for celebrities who were selling their homes in the Hollywood Hills, property styling has quickly become a must-have for property in London. We’ve seen a surge in recent years in homeowners looking to shine the spotlight on their property, just like in the example below.

 

               

 

If you’d like to do the same, instruct tlc today to benefit from the personal touch and all the property styling needed to maximise the potential of your home and investment.

Get in touch with Toby and the team on 020 7370 4000 for your free valuation and advice including some top selling tips such as:

  • De-clutter as much as possible.
  • Clean from top-to-bottom.
  • Check your damp proofing.
  • Give rooms a fresh lick of paint if needed.
  • Furnish rooms so buyers can imagine themselves living there.
  • Make sure there is appropriate storage.
  • Invest in lighting if your rooms need that extra bit.
  • Repair any chips, nicks and cracks.
  • Position mirrors to reflect light.
  • Pick the right viewing days and viewing times.

Thank you so much for your help on this. Both you, Jamie and Amy were a pleasure to deal with and extraordinarily helpful (not something I can say too often with agents!). I hope to work with you again in the future.
CAView
Thank you, Samantha and Jamie. My mind has been put to ease. And let me offer a broader thanks to tlc generally. Your firm has been extremely helpful and responsive to a couple of foreigners trying to find a place to live in London. Thanks for everything
DFView
Hi Toby . . . Thanks - you ran a very efficient and open sales process . . . other agents could learn a lot! Reaffirms the heady heights that the London market has reached... Have a great weekend!

A little note for the lettings team, thanks for finding suitable tenants for my property so quickly. It is very much appreciated.
Dr. GView
I just wanted to say thank you to Sam and Jamie. You were both so lovely and really went out of your way to look after us. I have felt rather badly treated by some other property agents who made it ever so clear that we are not the client, but the property owner is
EHView
Dear Samantha, Not only you are a gorgeous girl but you are a big star too! Many thanks for all, I ll recommend your office to all the people i know. Many many thanks x

Hi Toby, I want to thank you for your wonderfully generous hamper which was a lovely gesture- totally unexpected. The flat is great and my children who saw it today like it hugely too. You were so helpful in all the process of my purchase and I am thrilled it has gone through smoothly. I do hope your play production went well and only sorry I couldn't make it. Do let me know of other events you are involved with later. I will be in touch re a doubles some time! With many thanks
GAView
Very many thanks for your always prompt help! A good measure above most of your competitors, by the way.
JPView
I would like to thank you for a job well done. You have impressed me with your enthusiasm and efficiency. Your name will be the first one I mention when my Singapore friends ask me for a London Letting Agent! I look forward to working with you in the future

Thank you so much for all your help Sam, you have made it an incredibly pleasant experience...I wish you were in charge of my banking too! Kind regards

Hi Sam, I wanted to thank you very much because you have been lovely not pushy unlike the others and I will definitely keep in touch. Take care
MSView
Toby, I must thank you for all your hard work on this one - without your pro-activity I do not believe we would ever have got to an exchange of contracts given the landlord involved. Kind regards
MVView
Hi Jeanette, Toby: Thanks a lot for your great service, I will definitely recommend you to friends that were to look in this area for the future. Kind regards
NLView
Dear all at tlc, thank you for all your work and for your excellent service. The tenants seem to be very nice

Hi Jeanette & Toby, now everything is done, I'd like to thank you for your hard work on this sale. Your customer service is outstanding, you had our best interests first at all times, your communication with us was always clear and timely, above all else, you achieved an amazing price for us! I would definitely recommend you to anyone selling (or buying). Head and shoulders above all the other agents we have interacted with. Thanks
SBView
You guys are really underestimated in the business. It's weird sometimes when I'm out with other agents people confess to how good you guys are. They are almost threatened. It's so funny. I think The Prince thinks I'm one of these agents

Dear Toby & Jeanette, just wanted to express a big thank you from me and my mother. You were great every step of the way, from the initial negotiations, to helping manage our questions and helping out with the tricky moving parts like the freehold acquisition, last week helping us arrange the repair of the broken window and lastly being around promptly with keys on the last day when we completed. This is the third time we have bought via TLC, and the third time we’ve had a good experience
SMView
Toby, Thanks for all your help on finding a flat here in Earl’s Court. Amy was extremely helpful throughout the process and we found her advice invaluable. We just finished our move-in and are getting settled in. Thanks again, and I hope we can catch up sometime soon. Cheers
