SELL YOUR PROPERTY WITH US IN SIX SIMPLE STEPS


“We explain how the market is performing, giving advice and guidance on how to maximise your sale price”

1) BOOK YOUR FREE APPRAISAL

Pricing plays an important role with a number of factors to consider. An independent assessment of your property will be carried out by our property expert. During the visit we explain how the market is performing, giving advice and guidance on how to maximise your sale price. You can book a free, no obligation valuation today by calling us today.

2) INSTRUCT US

Upon your instruction, we will guide you on how to sign up to your chosen service. We will then arrange a suitable time to visit the property in order to take professional photographs, create a floorplan, take room measurements and note down key information about your property. We will give guidance on how to prepare and present your property to its full potential which is also known as staging. Our agents are trained in photography and use the best camera equipment.

3) LAUNCHING YOUR PROPERTY ONLINE

Once our local agent has completed the staging visit, we will enhance photographs by making them sharper, brighter and apply a blue sky if necessary, and within 48 hours, we will request final approval. Once this is obtained, your property will be made live on the major property portals in just a few hours or on the agreed marketing start date. If agreed, we will also arrange for a “For Sale” board to be erected where appropriate.

4) VIEWINGS AND FEEDBACK

We manage our clients diaries for all viewing appointments within the pre-agreed availability of our vendors, for conducting their own viewings. We confirm all viewings within 24hours of their commencement. All buyers are pre-qualified with our in-house independent mortgage broker to confirm affordability. This ensures only proceed-able buyers attend viewings. Viewing feedback is provided where possible, within 24hours of any viewings taking place.

5) OFFERS AND NEGOTIATION

With each offer received, we will negotiate the highest price and assess the buyers’ financial position in terms of whether they are cash buyers’ or relying on a mortgage. We will vet prospective buyers’ by asking for proof of deposit, mortgage offer in principal and check that their existing property is sold subject to contract should this be required.

6) EXCHANGE AND COMPLETION WITH WEEKLY UPDATES

When an offer has been successfully negotiated, we will prepare and send a “memorandum of sale” to all parties (including solicitors) which will trigger the start of the conveyancing process. We will ensure that your sale completes as efficiently as it can by providing regular updates throughout the process, keeping in direct communication with various parties, such as the buyer’s solicitor, their mortgage broker, surveyors, the buyer themselves and of course you and your solicitor.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHERE WILL YOU MARKET MY PROPERTY?

Where 98% of prospective buyers search for properties which is online. Your property advert will be published on major property portals. This means that we will likely generate more interest and increase competition on price. We will also help you negotiate the best selling price when offers come in, and ultimately, you will have the final decision on whether you would like to accept a buyer’s offer.

WHY DO VALUATIONS VARY BETWEEN AGENTS?

The market will determine what the seller is prepared to pay for your property. Our job is to help ensure your property is valued accurately by our agents, whose full focus is to understand local market values and to back up their valuation with real evidence. It’s understandably tempting to instruct the agent who gives the highest valuation, however a recent report from Zoopla showed that the original asking price for a third of properties on the market had to be reduced by £25,000 on average before selling. Every property will sell if it’s presented, marketed and most importantly priced correctly. Our property experts are equipped with the latest valuation tools, having more time to focus on property market levels, thereby meaning that the most accurate, evidence based valuations can be provided. Should you disagree with our valuation, or have been persuaded by another agent that it should be higher, then we can test the market for you, however in all cases we will do our utmost to sell at the highest price possible.

WHAT IS THE INCENTIVE FOR YOU TO SELL?

We rely mostly on recommendations from previous vendors. It’s essential for us to sell as many properties as we can in order to grow our business. Additionally, we are motivated to beat traditional agents and help enforce revolutionary changes in the market to benefit the consumer. We will regularly ask for feedback, enabling us to continually improve our services. From a monetary aspect, the changing model of property portals such as Zoopla is based on how many properties we list in total, therefore it remains in our interests to efficiently maintain our available stock levels and work closely with you to ensure your property has the best chance of selling quickly and at the highest price possible.

CAN I COME ONBOARD WITHOUT MEETING FOR THE VALUATION?

Yes, if perhaps you already have an asking price in mind that you would like to aim for, you can instruct us at any time. We can immediately get to work on preparing your property for an agreed market launch date.

HOW QUICKLY CAN YOU VISIT?

WHAT IF MY PROPERTY IS ALREADY BEING MARKETED BY ANOTHER AGENT?
