Selling Your Property

Accurate Valuation

The first step to selling your property is getting it valued, the aim should be to sell it at the best possible price in the shortest possible time. We will advise you of an upper and lower price level, which normally allows some latitude for negotiation.

To arrange a free valuation carried out by experienced people with good local knowledge please complete the property valuation request form, email us or contact us by phone.

Instructing A Solicitor

We would recommend that you instruct a solicitor at the start of marketing to avoid delays once a sale has been agreed. The success of a purchase can be reliant on the instruction of an efficient and experienced solicitor.

We are happy to advise you on tried and tested local solicitors.

Presenting Your Property

First impressions count, making the presentation of your property critical to a successful sale.

Below are some tips on making your property appeal to the widest market:

Marketing Your Property

As soon as you have decided to appoint us as your agent, we arrange an appointment to visit your property in order to take some internal and external photographs. From then on your property will be marketed in the followings ways.

Accompanied Viewings

We will happily accompany viewing appointments ensuring we are on hand to answer any questions immediately and advise where necessary. Having access to your property at short notice is important in order for us to show your property to prospective purchasers as soon as they contact us / walk into the office with an interest in viewing your property. Accompanied viewings mean we can use our expertise to help sell your property.

Receiving An Offer

As soon as an offer is received we will notify you both verbally and in writing.

We can request the buyers to provide proof of their ability to proceed. For example by providing proof of cash funds or evidence of their mortgage agreed in principle. It is then your decision whether to accept the offer.

Until the contracts are signed and exchanged there are no legal obligations.

Agree To An Offer

Once you accept an offer we will prepare a memorandum of sale which is sent to all parties including your solicitor and the purchasers solicitor confirming the agreed price and any special conditions.

Your solicitor will send out a draft contract to the buyer’s solicitor who will then carry out preliminary enquiries. At this stage you will also be able to agree on dates for the survey on your property, exchange of contracts and proposed date for completion.

Until the contracts are signed and exchanged there are no legal obligations.

Exchange Of Contracts

Exchange of contracts occurs when the following have been confirmed and agreed:

You can only exchange once your buyer has paid a cleared deposit (usually 10% of the sale price) to their solicitors account. Your solicitor will inform you when contracts have been exchanged and then will inform us. The completion date is then set by mutual agreement and is contractually binding.

Completion

Completion is when the residual monies (usually 90%) are transferred from the buyer's solicitor to your solicitor's account. This final stage of the sale normally happens two or four weeks following exchange.

Your solicitor will contact you and us when the money has cleared in their account and we will then release keys to your buyer.

Congratulations, your property is now sold!
