Step - 1 Get a Valuation
Having a realistic view on the value of your home will help you set a sale price that will maximize interest by potential buyers, and also ensure you’re getting the best offers. We’re based in the heart of the areas we serve, and have the local knowledge needed to give you a fair and accurate assessment of market value.
Step - 2 Property ready for sale
Well-presented properties achieve higher offers. It’s a good idea to ensure the place is tidy and presentable, and to fix any bits and pieces that might deter potential buyers. We have a list of handymen and tradesman available if you’d like some recommendations.
Step - 3 Get On The Marketing
We’ll take professional photos, prepare floor plans, and list your property on the three major property portals: Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime Location. We also have a list of potential buyers we will approach directly who have already registered interest in buying properties just like yours.
Step - 4 Viewings
We’ll work with you to find the most convenient times for viewing that work for both you and potential buyers. You don’t necessarily have to be at home during the viewings.
Step - 5 Receive offers
We’ll pass on any offers received, along with our recommendations. We’ll also negotiate with the buyer on your behalf until you’re happy with the deal.
Step - 6 Accept An Offer
Once you’ve accepted an offer, we’ll prepare a Memorandum of Sale outlining the agreed price, contact details of both parties and their solicitors, and any conditions of the sale. Now it’s time to instruct your solicitor to start the conveyancing process.
Step - 7 Exchange Of Contracts
This is the point at which the sale becomes legally binding. The contract will include your agreed date of completion. Although the property is legally yours until the completion date, it’s usually less stressful if you arrange to move out a few days earlier.
Step - 8 Completion
The full amount of the purchase price is transferred to you solicitors, and the property is legally sold.
Congratulations on selling your home!
