The longest appraisal..

The longest appraisal..

I had my longest ever sales appraisal this week. Three hours!?!

In fairness it was unusual that it took so long, and it was a lovely massive house, built in the 1700’s and extended in Victorian times. It was a character Georgian house steeped in history, and located in the centre of Market Bosworth, Leicestershire. Some of the rooms were so large that they were as big as some flats I’ve rented out!

I won’t know whether I have the instruction to sell until early next year, but being shown around a lovely old house like that is something that I quite enjoy about my job. I get my surveyors head on, scan the walls and imagine what it looked like back in the day. I ask questions because I’m interested and want to know as much as I can to help sell the property.

If you have a property to sell, please call Martin & Co Hinckley on 01455 636349 or email
