    As many of you know Me and Siân hope to sell up here and buy a property in France. But to do that we must first sell our property in Wales. We've only had two viewings in 18 months so we have sacked our estate agent and will be marketing it ourselves.

    I've been working on a website today, and it's a work in progress but please take a look and tell me where you think I might improve what I've done already. I'm just building some more web pages that describe the local area. There are lots of photos but its auto-scaling so should even load on your phone, if you are on a slow connection though it will annoy you::bigsmile:

    Only thing that springs to mind immediately is that it needs a location map.

    Looks pretty good to me, Jim... :thumb:

    And after 20 moves in so many years, I`m an authority... :winky:

    The only critisym is the photo in the kitchen...... put the four brown chairs down the side`s and the cream ones.... one at each end..... I know your not selling the furniture but atheseticaly (that's not spelt right, I know :Sad:) to the eye...

    Cant help on the area.... I think the photo`s say`s it all.... Beautiful... :thumb:

    And a couple of flowers in the pots out side the front door... :thumb:

    Few ash trays scattered around would look homely... and chop that bloody fir tree down at the end of the reformed barn.... some one could get hurt walking into that on a dark night... :winky::ROFLMAO:

    House Sale

    Hi Jim
    We tried to sell our House in a famous North Yorkshire Coast village- our sticking point was Rightmove- obviously where everyone looks when searching for a house.
    To enable us to advertise on there we used an agent called
    http://www.housenetwork.co.uk/

    They were very good and we had a lot of interest, don,t know what the coverage is in Wales.
    Good luck with your sale, it looks a beautiful house

    Sue

    Cripes.

    Cleaning and tidying that would take longer than doing the Hymer...

    My head hurts thinking about it...

    Fantastic opportunity for someone who has the money Jim, and a very professional ad.
    Hope someone comes along soon and you both get the chance to make the move you want :Smile:

    Looks good to me Jim.:thumb:

    If it doesn't work on that site have you thought of using a high end agent like Savilles?

    They might well have a list of clients looking to escape to the Country.

    Absurd.

    The price of a shed in London.

    Someone out there needs that place.

    The 3 "full screen" photos at the top of the page are excellent.
    If all the photos of the property could be viewed in full screen that would be even better.

    When looking at properties I also like if there is a floorplan option to view.
    This gives an immediate and real "feel" for the internal layout of the property to potential buyers.

    Best of luck....:thumb:

    Hi Jim and Sian,

    I think you've done a good job with the photos - I would suggest another photo of the kitchen, it's difficult to see it properly from the angle of the photo. I agree with Mo, move the chairs around to put the two beige ones at either end!

    Such a pity we didn't win that big Euromillions, you would have had all of us knocking on your door! :roflmto:

    Hope you get it sold and move onto your next adventure.

    I was going to say the same as Sir Old Mo and mention the 5 van site as I think this would be a great selling point. We stayed at a hotel nearby to your place for our daughters graduation and the other couple staying there were on a three week tour of the area looking to buy a place with land which they could use for small camp site and a small holding so there are buyers out there looking for what you are offering. Good luck with the sale. :thumb:

    Nice place Jim, and not too far away from where my parents used to live in Mydroilyn. It took them ages to sell their house too, agents ( in Aberaeron) were useless, They ended up putting it in Country Life and with another agent and it sold pretty quickly.
    Anyway, good luck, we are trying to sell ours too and moving to France. We have had loads of viewings, just no one with a suitcase full of cash yet.............

    Hi Jim, what a lovely property....but personally I think some of the pics are not doing it justice. a few of the pics have something clipping them in the right hand bottom of the screen, a couple are bled out through over exposure. I am a perfectionist BTW. There is a bit to much flash used in some of the pics which is making the interior look a bit stark on a few of them (the bedroom ones) and the first lounge one. The kitchen is definately not looking at it's best and needs a re-do.

    I am sure your place will sell itself but a few more 'cozy' ambient light pics will maybe help.
    Some tips here http://www.mcpactions.com/blog/2011/12/14/5-photography-tips-for-successful-interior-design-photos/

    dont take this as a criticism of the photographer :thumb:

    (1) need floor plans of each building and each floor with the building, showing general layout and approx sizes.

    (2) availability of local services, eg schools, pubs, shops, garages, bus and other public transport services.

    (3) wider area services, leisure facilities, beaches, horse riding etc.

    (4) more photos, aim to at least double what you have.

    (5) no mention made of the CL on site and potential income from it.

    That's all that springs to mind at the moment.

    Best of luck.

    Peter
