A very important thing to keep in mind when receiving visits from potential clients is to ensure that the property looks at its best, free of problems, clean and tidy and well maintained which all contribute to the potential buyers impression and helps him to picture himself buying the property. If your goal is to buy and move into another house directly, make sure that the new property will be fully available for you to move into immediately after the sale; if the time for you to move out takes to long this could interrupt the sale of your property.
