Stunning End of Terrace Peverell House

Wow, this house looks stunning and offers 1,719 sq ft of accommodation. 

Kingswood Park Avenue, Peverell has come to the market with Atwell Martin for a price of £282,500. 

Click here to see more photos and the floor details. 

Looking at recent sale prices within the road it will be interesting to keep an eye and see what this property achieves. No property has ever achieved such a high price in Kingswood Park Avenue but then again this property has not been on the market since 2006 when it was brought for £239,950. I would suggest the current agent has been a little optimistic on price.

One of the first houses in Peverell

An historic picture shows this house in Peverell Park Road as one of the first built in the expansion of Plymouth back in 1896, when Peverell was incorporated in the City boundary. By the 1920's Peverell was built up and had become one of the most liked areas in Plymouth.

This house in Peverell Park Road has just come to the market with us for a Guide Price of £290,000 - £300,000 and still contains many character features from stained glass windows, original cupboards and many more.

This is a lovely spacious family home offering 5 bedrooms and has come to the market for the first time in 15 years.

Presenting Your Home

One thing that I know is that properties that are well presented generally sell faster. I would always suggest before putting your property onto the market take a look at your property and if you’re brave enough ask a friend to give their thoughts as if they were a buyer looking at your property. This way before you come to the market you have time to de-clutter, finish DIY jobs and even freshen up d├ęcor before you open up your property to the public.

Remember first impressions count, so from the doorstop to the kitchen make sure the house is prepared. Dishes are washed and put away, de-clutter worktops, and make sure beds are made. Invest in some boxes for instant tidy up’s and maybe even store away in the loft to give the property more space.

Make sure your home is clean and tidy. Make your home feel welcoming by investing in some colorful flowers. Also nothing smells as fresh as fresh air so open windows before viewings.    

Estate agents are experts they will have sold many properties so ask their advice remember they can advise on what works you should do which will benefit the sale of your property.

If you would like some advice on how to present your property then please feel free to contact me, I will be more than happy to visit you or give you some advice over the phone.

10 tips to selling your home

1. Exteriors - First impressions count

Take an objective look at the outside of your property or maybe even ask a family member or friend. If its looking a little run down, evaluate the extent of the work needed to smarten it up. Simple jobs like cleaning fascia boards and guttering. Maybe even a quick lick of paint to flaky woodwork can give exteriors an instant facelift.

2. Garden makeover

We're not talking about major landscaping, just taming overgrown areas. Mowing the lawn and pulling up weeds from paving won't take long and can make a world of difference.

3. Remove obstacles

It's best not to make your prospective buyer jump over hurdles. This may mean moving children's play things, pets' toys and baskets, bicycles or sports items. Clear routes for buyers to make it easy for them to view your home. 

4. Ensure rooms smell fresh

Strong cooking odours or lingering pet smells can be off-putting. Open windows to allow fresh air to circulate and install discreet air fresheners. 

5. Clear clutter 

Buyers will expect to see the usual ornaments and knick-knacks, however too much clutter can be a distraction. How about a clear out of unwanted items earlier this will not only make space but will save time when you come to move. 

6. Open up the view

Moving unused items of furniture can open up a room and make it look more spacious. If an area is crowded buyers may not be able to appreciate the true dimensions of the room. 

7. Let in light

Maximise the amount of natural light coming into your house by making sure all curtains and blinds are fully open. Make sure overgrown trees are cut back so they do not obscure light. 

8. Brighten a dull room

If you have a room in the house which is dull/dark maybe try using a higher wattage light bulb or paint the walls in pale colours and add mirrors to reflect light. 

9. Leave the building

Your home is, of course personal to you, and sometimes this can make prospective buyers feel awkward. They may refrain from too much discussion in front of you. They are also more likely to spend longer on a viewing and ask more questions to the agent if you're not there. A buyer is more likely to give constructive feedback which you maybe able to use for future viewings. 

10. Trust your estate agent

Experienced estate agents know what they're doing. They will have sold numerous properties in the past and have hopefully gained many years knowledge of selling houses. So why not trust them to sell our house rather than trying to do it yourself.
