Your property will be advertised on Northern Ireland's biggest property websites alongside all leading agents, so your advertising with Watson Property can be assured of achieving the very same reach. Long gone are the old days, when only a select few would be informed about a property coming onto the market - today the whole world knows instantly when you go online!
Poor photography and presentation can ruin your chances of grabbing attention and making that important first impression. Not only do we provide professional photography services as standard, we also offer 3D Virtual Tours, 2D Floor Plans and Drone Photography as optional extras, and we provide useful advice on presentation so your property looks as attractive as it possibly can to your potential buyers.
We are one of the few estate agents in Northern Ireland to fully explain and advertise all our services and VAT free fees online, so there are no nasty surprises for you later on. It isn't surprising that our fees tend to be much more competitive than those charged by agents who don't advertise their fees online! As a client of Watson Property, you can be assured that our service to you includes the very latest innovations of 'Prop Tech', combined with professional experience and family values going back over 130 years.
Once we have taken photos and measurements, your property can be launched online the very next day. All you need to do is book.
Unlike the majority of agents, we advertise our fees so there are no nasty surprises later on. We include all standard advertising in our fee, we don't add any VAT, and only your chosen optional extras aren't included in the below.
So for example, if your property sells for £160,000, our final bill would be £800.Download Heads of Terms for further details

Before we book to take photographs of your property, bear in mind that clever presentation will help you to find the right client and achieve the best price. Our seven lucky tips for presenting your property to the public should be applied before the photographs are taken, and maintained throughout the sale to keep your property in tip top condition.
Thorough cleaning will create a great first impression every time, and this extends to the outside also.
Carry out repairs for minor jobs, replace damaged flooring, fix cupboard doors, guttering etc. Your viewers will see neglected maintenance everywhere, even if they are relatively minor repairs, and this will discolour their view of the whole property.
In particular, the entrance to your property should be smart and clutter free. make use of what you have, a nicely planted pot and freshly painted door will look great. Excellent first impressions can work wonders!
Your tastes may not suit your buyer, viewers will find it more difficult to identify with your home if you have loud colours or have made bold interior design 'statements'. If you choose to redecorate before presenting to the market, choose neutral earthy colours that everyone will feel comfortable with.
Clutter makes your home look smaller to any viewers, and will not look appealing in photos. Show off the whole of your space, keep clutter out of sight!
Tobacco smoke, pet and cooking smells, damp and cold will create a strong impression on your viewer and probably an adverse one. Careful ambient lighting, some heating, making the most of natural light, and good ventilation will create a welcoming ambience for viewers.
The viewer should easily recognise each room as defined for the purpose intended. Gym equipment in the dining room, storage boxes in the bedroom and computer tables in the lounge will give the impression of inadequate space.
Remember, when you home is on the market, it must be as good as an enticing shop front, a good restaurant, or a welcoming hotel. The image you project to viewers, even the most subtle details, will make all the difference to whether or not they 'buy in' to what you are offering.
