Guide to Selling Your Home

Why use Lomond to sell your home?

We complete hundreds of valuations every year, giving us intimate and extensive knowledge of property prices across Ayrshire. Our valuations take all local benefits into account, as well as the condition, size and location of your property.

Lomond is one of the fastest growing estate agency brands in Ayrshire. Our business is run by local people who love their jobs and communicate with buyers and sellers on a daily basis

We prepare a comprehensive and individually-tailored marketing campaign for every property we sell. Lomond will promote your property through trusted online property websites such as rightmove.co.uk and onthemarket.com and our own site lomondproperty.com. We will market your property through effective press advertising, our high-visible office window displays and a professional ‘For Sale’ board. We also have an extensive database of registered buyers we will contact about your property.

Presentation counts. Lomond will prepare a professionally-designed sales brochure, complete with floor plan, description and feature points for your property. Our agents use only the best camera and wide-angle lens equipment for photography to ensure your property is displayed to its maximum potential.

We pride ourselves on our flexibility and carry out viewings both after hours and on weekends, allowing us to maximise opportunities to sell your home. We will also provide you with regular feedback; our accompanied viewings service enables us to speak directly with buyers and receive their comments on your property. Taking feedback onboard is important and even small changes can help maximise sales opportunities.

Both our Ayr and Irvine offices are easily accessible with parking close by. We are a local trusted brand and provide a welcome environment for both buyers and sellers. Please feel to pop in for a coffee to discuss your property needs.

We offer a transparent approach to fees, keeping matters very simple and straightforward and you informed at all times. We also offer a very popular ‘No Upfront Fees’ option which offers an accessible route to market and sale.

Lomond are members of The Property Ombudsman, adhering to the Ombudsman for Estate Agents Scheme. This provides our clients with the reassurance that they will receive the highest level of customer service and professionalism.

Preparing your home

The majority of properties require very minor works to prepare them for going onto the market and our dedicated sales team will be happy to advise you regarding decoration, presentation and potential repair works.

In the first step of our guide to selling your home, remember to cast a critical eye over your property and identify areas that really require improvement.

Keep rooms clean and tidy to allow buyers to fully visualise the space on offer.

If you are painting or decorating, choose neutral tones. This makes the space larger and gives it a ‘blank canvas’ feel.

Cleaning windows and opening all blinds and curtains to encourage as much natural light as possible into your property. Open windows and doors to allow fresh air to circulate through the property prior to viewings.

Many buyers will walk or drive past prior to viewing and a well-cared for exterior creates a great first impression. Touch up any painting required to external doors, polish handles, sweep away leaves, mow the lawn, and show how areas of the garden can be used for dining by strategically placing garden furniture.
