In the current market it is more important than ever to ensure that your property is a highly saleable proposition, rather than one that makes another house look good by comparison.
Of course, there are several basics that should be in place.

Many properties in the Newham area are as unique and distinctive as the people who buy them. So when selling yours, it is most important that your estate agent has a thorough understanding not only of your property, but also of the needs and preferences of every buyer who views it.
It is simply not good enough to load the property onto “the system” and hope for a sale, especially in this market.
