Pritchards, Bath’s longest established Estate Agents, have today announced the launch of their new ‘House Dressing’ service, designed specifically to help clients prepare a house for sale. This pro-active service is now being offered free of charge to clients who agree to sell their property with Pritchards. Once a house is put on the market, it becomes more than a home, it’s a product, and just like any other product for sale, it will face lots of competition.  It needs to look its best and appeal to as broad a market as possible.  An experienced interior designer will visit your property in order to provide helpful and practical advice in maximising your home’s potential.  The aim is to ensure that every room is presented for sale in its best possible light. The aim is to make your home look totally inviting and this can usually be done by inexpensive improvements to help create a lifestyle for those viewing the property.  This ensures that the photographs for the brochure are greatly improved and in turn will help to increase viewings on the property. To shorten the length of time the property is on the market will make the process less stressful and could actually add value to the property. The designer will cover colour schemes, room layouts, furniture and flooring options, lighting, soft furnishings and those all-important finishing touches. Topics covered will include: • De-cluttering of rooms • Improving lighting for maximum impact • Re- arranging furniture to maximise sense of space • Dressing and organising kitchen and dining areas • Styling beds and adding finishing touches • Dressing bathrooms and cloakrooms • Quick fixes for problem areas (e.g. marked carpets, pet areas, etc)

A full written report following the initial consultation will be charged at £100, if required. If you are staying put but need help to update your home, Pritchards can offer a one hour (minimum) on-site consultation to assess the property, you will then receive a report that highlights the strengths and weaknesses of your property.  The report will contain ideas and tips of things that need to be highlighted and advise the right way to style your property. The Home Dressing Package at £200 includes: • A minimum 1 hour consultation to discuss and assess your property on-site • A full report of findings highlighting strengths and weaknesses of the property • Advice on short and long term ideas for investment in the future of the property along with advice on what is worth investing in Pritchards Managing Director, Michael Hughes commented: “At Pritchards, we’re always looking for new ways to help our clients sell their properties. Whether the property is new to market, or one that’s proved more tricky to sell, our House Dressing team provide fresh insights on how to get the very best out of every room in our clients’ homes”. Already, several Pritchards’ customers have benefitted from the new service, with one vendor commenting: “It’s amazing, we spent 7 years renovating and furnishing our home and we thought everything was absolutely perfect! The Pritchards team provided us with some fantastic insights, all of which we eagerly noted down and implemented. It’s extraordinary how a few simple additions and changes can make such a difference. The house is now at its absolute finest and we’re more confident than ever about our prospects of selling”. Pritchards have a team of conscientious staff who have an in-depth knowledge of all periods and styles of dwellings in and around the city of Bath, as well as experience in negotiating a fair price for vendor and purchaser.  In addition to their highly impressive new website and their dedication to the marketing of properties on the web, Pritchards also has one of the most recognisable office windows in Bath, just off Milsom Street in Quiet Street, the city’s main shopping destination.
