Date: 10/03/16

Your Cyprus property is one of your most valuable assets. When the time to sell comes, the way your property is presented plays a big part in attracting potential buyers and gaining the best possible sale’s price.

Make the property ready for photography and you will also have it looking shipshape for your open home viewings.
