The selling process
Getting your home valued
The first step is to get your home valued. If you wish to market your property for sale, call us today and we will arrange for one of our experienced property consultants to visit your home and give you a free market appraisal. They will be able to give you advice about current market trends and suggest an initial asking price for your property.
Dress your home for success
For potential buyers the appearance of your property is everything. First impressions count. For the complete guide please click the link below to prepare your property for market.
After you have had some viewings we would expect one of the potential buyers to put an offer in on your home. Once someone makes an offer, our experienced sales negotiators will qualify the offer.
We try to find out as much as possible about their intentions and financial capability to help you make an informed decision with regards to whether or not you should accept the offer.
Accepting an offer
Once you have agreed a price with your buyer, you will be asked for your solicitor details and a 'memorandum of sale' will be communicated to all parties.
Your solicitor will start the conveyancing process and you will be required to provide a fixtures and fittings list, covering what is included in the sale e.g curtains, carpets etc. This also gives you an opportunity to try and sell items which you no longer require or negotiate them into the sale price. The contract will then be signed and the conveyancing work finalised.
Alongside the conveyancing, if you require a mortgage, your mortgage adviser will have been working hard to ensure your mortgage offer is received quickly, and this will be conveyed to your solicitor. You will be contacted by your solicitor and informed that you have exchanged and the deposit monies have cleared in the solicitors account. Completion will happen on an agreed date between you and the buyers.
Conveyancing (legal process)
A solicitor will be required to handle the legal paperwork involved (conveyancing). It is preferable to use a solicitor who knows the area that you're moving to and specialises in conveyancing. Ask us to refer you to a local solicitor who can help you with this important area of the process.
