Many thanks for the excellent review. It just shows that getting the price right and knowing our applicants means that this house sold quickly and without too many problems. If you are considering selling then don't just assume that highest price quoted to you is correct, consider the market (asking an expert) and consider your targets, do you need to sell quickly, do you have time on your hands? A good estate agent will not only find you a buyer, but they will communicate the who way through th ...
