why they bought it in the first

place).

To be blunt - six out of

every seven houses we sold last

year were either fresh on the

market or recently reduced in

price. "Beating someone else

to it" or "Getting a real bargain"

have always been top of the list

of what a buyer wants.

To give yourself a fighting

chance of a sale you need to

get your pricing right - that

means working closely with

your local agent... someone who

lives and works in the market

around you.

You'll also want to choose

an agency that attracts both

domestic and international

buyers.

This leads to the inevitable

conclusion that the first thing

you should do when selling

your house is to mandate

Leggett Immobilier to sell it for

you.

Give us the instruction and

automatically you'll be reaching

out to over 5.4m potential

international buyers. You'll see

your house on Rightmove, SeLoger

and other major portals,

it will be marketed through

Hamptons International and

other global partners and it will

benefit from our presence at all

the major property exhibitions

and in adverts in the Financial

Times and Country Life.

I'd then suggest you follow

these five golden rules to help

secure that vital sale:

LEGGETT MAGAZINE EXPERT ADVICE

LEGGETT IMMOBILIER - LOCAL KNOWLEDGE YOU CAN TRUST

- Paint/clean your front door

and make the first impression a

winner.

- Freshen up the walk to your

door by making the planting

colourful and welcoming.

- Go to the kerb and look at the

house from a buyer's perspective,

can you clear the clutter?

- Get that "snagging list" done

and make sure your kitchen and

bathrooms are sparkling.

- Help your agent get spectacular photos - move

the car, tidy

up the bikes and keep family

and pets out of the shots.

We have all grown up being

told these things by Sarah

Beeny or Phil and Kirstie but

don't forget that French vendors

haven't been indoctrinated

in the same way - so don't

hesitate to steal a march on

the competition. Oh....and did I

mention to make sure the price

is right?

First impressions count,

so make

sure your

outdoor

areas look

inviting
