Selling Your Property
Would you like to know what your property is worth?Request a Valuation
Focused to get you moving!
At London Stone Properties we offer a friendly service that we know you will find to be both professional and trustworthy. We understand that your property is a very important asset that needs direct attention and careful management. Whether you are looking to sell, make a purchase to live in or as a buy-to-let, we will always do our absolute best for you.
We are well known for ‘not’ being your standard estate agency. We have a more mature and down to earth style, proud to offer the type of customer focused service that we would like to receive ourselves. We also stand out by dealing with all clients with honesty and integrity.
Our highly knowledgeable sales team has over 40 years agency experience and has been selling in South East London since 2006. You can find the profiles of our Sales staff here
We use our experience to give sellers honest advice on their properties and in particular we price the flats correctly for the market we are in at the time the property comes on for sale.
Getting the price right is so crucial. It avoids the seller selling the flat too cheaply or avoids the seller wasting weeks of valuable marketing time if the price is too high. As an overpriced property either fails to sell, or may sell and that get down valued by the surveyor causing the vendor to lose their onward sale. At the same time you don’t want to under price the flat and stop the seller being able to reach that dream property on their onwards purchase.
How we deal with your property depends on your own circumstances. If you are an investor and the flat is let out then we need to proceed in a different fashion than we would if you are an owner occupier for example.
Please call us on: 020 3141 9100 or email on sales@LondonStoneProperties.com or Julia@LondonStoneProperties.com so we can look at your position in detail.

Preparing Your Property for Sale
The better your home looks, the easier it is to sell.
Get your home shipshape
Complete any outstanding 'odd jobs', touch up paintwork and make any minor repairs. A fresh lick of paint? Repainting a room could be time well spent. Neutral colours are best, don’t try to second guess someone else’s taste.
First impressions are important
Does your front door need a clean or paint, or letter box need fixing? If applicable, give the front garden a tidy. Remove all clutter from hallways – coats, shoes, bags etc.
Your kitchen will be a major selling point so make sure it looks its best. Make sure it's clean and tidy with no washing up on show!
Bathrooms must shine!
Polish your taps and remove any limescale, ensure the bath, sink and shower 'sparkle'. Put away any bathroom clutter.
Keep curtains and blinds open for viewings to reveal as much natural light as possible – dark properties are harder to sell. Ensure windows are cleaned inside and out.
Show off any outside space
A well-maintained garden or outside space can greatly aid a sale. Ensure it’s tidy and enhance with plants or flowers where possible. A table and chairs for balconies.
A reason to de-clutter
Buyers want the feeling of space, so get rid of any clutter, clear-out cupboards and wardrobes where possible. Storage is key, flaunt it when you have it, don't highlight it when you lack it.
Do your spring clean
Give the property a 'blitz'. Clean and vacuum carpets, polish throughout and ensure the property is well-aired at all times. Remember people say they can see 'past things' but quite often they can't!
Whilst you no doubt love your family pets, prospective buyers may not. Bowls of food, smelly litter boxes and pet hairs will give the wrong impression – where possible take dogs for a walk whilst a viewing takes place.
Our experienced team of property professionals will take care of the rest. Extensive website adverts, professional photos, floorplans and accompanied viewings are all part of the service to sell or let your property.
