Spring is in the air and we're entering a traditionally busy period in the buying and selling calendar. The seasonal shift towards warmer weather and brighter days always encourages activity among home movers, and with two Easter Bank Holidays ahead, anyone thinking of selling their London property should appoint an estate agent now.

This article, featuring how to 'supercharge' the kerb appeal of your property, is a good read for anyone hoping to sell their property this spring. It touches on the point that the average buyer will take just eight seconds to decide whether they like a property or not, reinforcing the age old saying that 'first impressions count'.

We successfully sell and let hundreds of mews houses and architecturally interesting properties across Central London, so we understand the importance of presentation - especially when it comes to the exterior of your property.

The photograph taken of the outside of your home will often be used as the 'hero' shot when the property is listed on a portal like Rightmove and on an estate agent's own website. Buyers scrolling through lists of property for sale may make the same snap decisions online as they do in person.

Take a look at the properties listings on the Lurot Brand website for presentation ideas - we're proud that the homes we sell and let are impeccably presented with exteriors that encourage offers.
