Fisks London follow the RICS ‘Blue Book’ standards when appraising and valuing property.
We will share our methodology with you so you can see how we have arrived at our valuation.
We will explain the merits of our various marketing strategies, including but not limited to Open Days, Block Viewings and the benefits of choosing between a Guide Price, Price on Application or a Fixed Marketing Price.
Our suggested strategy will generate competition among buyers, enabling us to convert enquiry into block viewings, this approach often leads to multiple bids for the property maximising the final selling price.
Presenting the property
We recommend that the property is professionally cleaned paying attention to the kitchens and bathrooms, consider replacing sealants where necessary. If possible please tidy away any extraneous ornaments. Please also keep the lawn and edge trimmed and the garden free of refuse.
Fisks London ensures that all viewings are accompanied by one of our trained and qualified consultants. Our extended opening hours mean that we carry out viewings when other agents are closed, resulting in more viewings with more buyers for your property.
We provide regular feed back to our clients and offer regular review meetings.

On receipt of an offer we will notify you in writing and verbally. We will verify the buyer’s financial position to check that they are able to proceed.
