Our sales particulars contain floor plans for the vast majority of properties and are all displayed on our website, Rightmove, Zoopla, Prime Location, OnTheMarket.com as well as in the local press and our prominent town centre window display. Excellent photography, floor plans, engaging descriptions and google street view ensure buyers know a good deal about your property before they arrive at the door.

Energy Performance Certificates (EPC)
The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a European Union initiative as part of the drive to improve energy efficiency across the EU member countries. Since 2009 all buildings in the UK that are constructed, sold or offered for rent need an EPC.
- An EPC is required whenever a property is marketed
- The EPC is valid for 10 years
- This applies to all sellers hoping to sell their property and to landlords offering a property for rent.
EPCs must be produced by a registered Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA). We can provide our own in-house DEA who works closely with Barbets to provide the best service at very affordable rates.
We have recently given our well established website an overhaul. We believe that this latest incarnation allows us to present your home in the best light possible. Our website is both intuitive and reactive to the device that someone is using to search for property, be it a desktop computer, tablet or mobile device. From enhanced presentation to increased Search optimisation we want your home to stand out from the crowd. Barbets.co.uk will be the first place where you can see all our properties as they are added throughout the day - with floor plans, location maps, a gallery of photographs and a downloadable pdf brochure.
