A second thread to keep up with all the improvements going on.

Thank you to everyone from the first thread who helped, I've just emailed the following photos to the estate agents to replace the terrible EA ones

Like your plans for the back garden!

Oh, I've just posted on your other thread. The conservatory looks amazing - well done. Personally I would still paint the brick fireplace white / cream.

The estate agent posting still doesn't do your home justice.

They have only added 2 new photos of the dining room and conservatory, both of which are poor photos, despite the brilliant work you have done. The blinds should be fully back in both rooms for photos, and the angle of the conservatory photo shows more of the ceiling than the actual room. I think you did a better job with your phone!

The photos of your nicest room still has the odd placement of the coffee table. Photos of the bedrooms and bathroom are still the ones taken at night with the blinds / curtains closed.

I think the problem with the front photos is that it looks like the house next door is double the width of yours, whereas it is actually 2 houses. So it needs to be taken from another angle which cuts them out. Have you weeded below the from wall?

And they are still stating three bedrooms, but not showing the photo of the third room. Your estate agent really isn't doing much to earn their commission. Could you ask for new photos, or even provide your own for them to upload? Do you have a friend who is handy with a camera?

Outside - your latest photos are better than the EA, but still don't give an overall picture of the back. Perhaps move the white furniture more centrally in the apple tree shot? (which looks very nice) Have you thought of standing at the rear entryway and taking a photo that way? And the grass - have you cut it? I like the paint job on the external wood.

Have you had any increase in viewings yet?

Yes we've had 4 viewings this week and feedbacks been much better, we've improved the overall standard of finish inside and made it look a bit more personal too.

Garden is already looking smarter.

Small small details....take some of the toys from the conservatory as it clutters it up. Just for the pics.

Open the blinds. Will look much better.

Get the EA to take the virtual tour down. It still has all the old images from before.

And it is still only a two bed. No amount of primping is going to get past that. It is wasting people's time to persist in calling it a 3 bed when the the third is a walk in wardrobe.

The conservatory looks amazing, well done!

WineIsMyCarb Wed 10-Apr-19 19:33:09

Much better OP! Conservatory is transformed!!

BlueSkiesLies Wed 10-Apr-19 19:34:36

So much better, except it still isn't a 3 bed is it?

BlueSkiesLies Wed 10-Apr-19 19:35:13

You have worked magic with that conservatory

covetingthepreciousthings Wed 10-Apr-19 19:36:56

I remember your last thread. Conservatory looks vastly improved!

birdsandroses Wed 10-Apr-19 19:38:18

Conservatory looks so much better!

Contraceptionismyfriend Wed 10-Apr-19 19:39:32

The work you've done is amazing. Although the feedback was positive was there any other comments passed on?

GU24Mum Wed 10-Apr-19 19:39:49

So do I - that conservatory is SO much better now, well done!!!

mrsm43s Wed 10-Apr-19 19:39:57

It looks much, much better and the space is more defined in a way I can see a family using it. It's massively improved and you've worked really hard on it.

Still won't cut it for a family wanting a 3 bed , though. It'll blow the socks off people looking for 2 beds, and it really should be advertised as such. You're wasting the time of people looking for 3 beds (with a window in each bedroom) as it stands.

Expressedways Wed 10-Apr-19 19:41:44

I remember your previous thread, the new photos are so much better and the conservatory transformation is amazing, seriously well done! However, you’re still advertising it as a 3 bed and the better photos don’t change the fact that it’s essentially a 2 bed with a ‘bonus room’. I wish you lots of luck though and hope the increase in viewings leads to an offer soon!

TrixieFranklin Wed 10-Apr-19 19:42:01

Oooo place marking for second thread!

GrandmasNightie Wed 10-Apr-19 19:43:06

Looks so much better - you have worked wonders!
But open the blinds and curtains!

TrixieFranklin Wed 10-Apr-19 19:44:04

Definitely ask them for a free premium listing OP to compensate for their short comings thus far, as a branch they'll have a certain number each month they should be able to give away for free..

SavoyCabbage Wed 10-Apr-19 19:46:18

It looks so much better. I was thinking if your house today when I was driving past colourful rendered houses in Wales.

IceRebel Wed 10-Apr-19 19:47:00

It definitely looks much better, and 4 viewings sounds very positive. What were the potential buyers comments?

BreakfastAtSquiffanys Wed 10-Apr-19 20:01:47

Your estate agent should employ you to do his photos.
His are rubbish compared to yours

Puzzledandpissedoff Wed 10-Apr-19 20:04:59

we've had 4 viewings this week and feedbacks been much better

I'm not at all surprised - fingers crossed for some offers soon!!

Ilikethinkingupnewnames Wed 10-Apr-19 20:09:31

Holy fuck it looks like a different place. Agree the virtual tour needs to be taken down

NameChangeJustBecauseICan Wed 10-Apr-19 20:20:12

The conservatory looks heaps better, especially the floor. Good to hear you've had more viewings and better feedback. Hopefully this will do the trick for you.
