Pricing plays an important role with a number of factors to consider. An independent assessment of your property will be carried out by your locally based 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.
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 photographs and note down key information about your property. We will give guidance on how to prepare and present your property to its full potential.
Your property will be made live on our online property portals in just a few hours or on the agreed marketing start date, this will include Zoopla and On The Market. If agreed, we will also arrange for a “For Sale” board to be erected where appropriate.
As you’d expect, prospective buyers are vetted before a suitable time is agreed and every enquiry is answered, thereby ensuring that every lead and opportunity is processed. Communication is a key focus of ours, valuing the importance of providing regular market report updates, discussing the performance of your listing and ensuring that you receive prompt and accurate viewing feedback.
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.
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.
We work with an independent mortgage advisor who is able to give the best advice you require, either face to face or over the phone at any time and will take care of everything from explaining all of your options to helping you select the right mortgage.

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.
