The first and most important decision to make when selling your Cotswolds property is the choice of Estate Agent - good advice is to "think local" - your buyers will and your property should be in the nearest suitable Cotswolds Estate Agent window - that's where your buyers will be looking - and Murrays are very well located with offices in Stroud, Painswick and Minchinampton. Because Murrays staff are also local they are well placed for viewings and can chat to clients about schools, rail links etc with real experience! Don't be "bought" by an over optimistic valuation - too high a price at the start can lead to properties sticking and eventually having to reduce in price. Murrays Independent Estate Agents put a huge amount of effort into valuations and getting the price right for you right from the off. They will then discuss with the client the suitable asking price and preferred method of sale - whether private sale, auction or tender. Partner Richard Murray is a qualified and experienced property auctioneer.
