Frequently asked questions
At JDG we can find a buyer for your home at any time of the year. Lancaster as a city is not seasonal. We have great employment with two universities and a hospital which means people move often. Morecambe however is slightly more so, being a seaside town. That saying people always want to move given the circumstances life often throws at us. For example babies will be born. People will get married. People will get divorced. People will change jobs. All are reasons people move!
Some houses will sell easier at different times of the year. For example a countryside home with far reaching views will always be more appealing on a lovely Summers day than in the middle of a bleak winter!
On average we sell our properties within a 6 -12 week period making us one of the fastest selling agents in our key area. However this does vary from house to house. West Road for example found a buyer in 3 days. Harewood Avenue sold to the first viewer on day one of marketing. Appletree Drive also sold very quickly, in the first week of marketing. Some house styles will sell quicker than others. For example we are always needing more bungalows and semi detached homes to sell. They often get snapped fast!
Your house is your home. Therefore if you have lived there for years it might be harder to see what potential buyers might see. This is where our home-staging advice comes in. It's really important your internal presentation is great and your photos stand out to buyers. Start by decluttering. Pack excess belongings and furniture into storage. Your rooms will start to look bigger! We'll give you tailored advice. Just remember this, it works on the tv programmes and it works in real life too!
We will always say yes! Not finishing odd jobs could cost you thousands. We often hear people say 'I'll let the my buyer do that'. Buyers will often changes things but they want to do it through choice not through necessity! Freshening up the paintwork can give the impression of a well maintained home. Re-grouting around the shower and polishing the taps, can give your bathroom a whole new fresh look. Make sure your front door stands out. You can't beat a great first impression.
These days it's all about having a great internet presence. That's why we advertise on all of the major property portals and websites including Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime Location. You have to make sure your home stands out there though hence why we believe having great photos and floor plans are essential. We also send out your details to our ready waiting buyers by email and telephone calls.
We also advertise locally. Despite the internet, people do still like to window shop. We are lucky to to be able to say we have the biggest and best windows in Lancaster and Morecambe. You'll have probably seen our prominently positioned offices, - Morecambe is right in the heart of the town! Newspapers are still are great source of enquiries, so we will advertise your property in the local press.
