Here's 3 important lessons I’ve learned about selling homes in Dolgellau over the last 23 years.

Sanderson Estate Agents

Lesson One

Show off the best bits

Make sure potential buyers know all about the best things that will make them buy in Dolgellau. Cader Idris, the local views up, the Mawddach estuary, Coed y Brenin and the schools and amenities in the community. Let me know what things have made your life in Dolgellau so pleasant and what made you choose to live there – They may be the same things that attract your buyer and help sell your home. Watch my short video aimed at attracting buyers that I’ve made about Dolgellau and see if any of them are in it.

Lesson Two

Know your target buyer

Assess their likely age, interests, where they are likely to be living at the moment and why they will love your home. Ensure these main attractions of your home are obvious for them to see in all the marketing material for your property – there’s an example of how to present a property using video in Dolgellau just above.

Lesson Three

Get the best price

If you want to get the best price don’t let your property go stale – Aim to sell within 6 months and this will still give you time to achieve the best price. It will also help avoid your home going stagnant on the market and it will then be very unlikely you haven’t moved within a year at the most.


Although most people don’t think they are in a hurry or anxious about selling to start with, once they have made the decision to move and have put their property up for sale they generally become a lot keener to see good progress. The main stage between the for sale board going up and exchanging contracts can be full of uncertainty with a roller coaster ride of emotions!

It’s inevitable there will be some inconvenience during the process of your move but we aim to try and keep this to the minimum for you with good clear communication and we aim to progress your sale through to completion as promptly as possible.

It all starts with us producing high quality marketing for your home. I would love to explain our advertising process to you when I have visited your property.

Book a Valuation

If you've watched any of my videos you’ll see I love doing viewings and we are happy to carry them out ourselves if you are away or don’t want to be present. All appointments are clearly confirmed and follow up reactions are provided to you. You will also be given 24 hour access to a special area on our website so you can check how things are going.

We are based locally to deal with things 6 days a week and with our out of office hours viewing line, video marketing and extensive internet promotion means you could look far and near but I still don’t think you will find anybody who personally does more to help sell your home for you.
