Despite the strongest market in a decade with property selling faster than ever, there are still homes in Fife that have not sold.
If you’ve been on the market for some time, you could be wondering why on earth you don’t have a buyer when demand is so high. With a backdrop of record-breaking prices, selling speeds and low supply, it’s far easier for an agent to make a sale than to fail, so why is your home not under offer?

Have you ever drunk a smoothie? They’re wonderfully delicious, but it can be challenging to identify each individual flavour when strawberry, spinach, ginger, honey and turmeric are all vying for your attention.

Summer is upon us, and with it comes the best time of the year to sell your home (and to be an estate agent!).
Blue skies, warm temperatures and nature in bloom make photos look brilliant, and homes look their best, while the lighter nights fuel faster decisions with fewer viewings in the dark.
With so many positives, it’s no wonder that summer is the time of year when lots of people decide to sell.
