“We explain how the market is performing, giving advice and guidance on how to maximise your sale price”
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 sales team member. 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, emailing us, using our website link or our interactive office touch screens.
Upon your instruction, we will 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. We will also go through our terms and conditions for signature at this stage.
Once your agent has completed the visit, we will start to draft a set of particulars for you whilst we wait for the photos, EPC and Floorplan to arrive (normally within maximum of 48 hours). Once these have been received and the draft is ready to go we will send these over for your approval. Once this is obtained, your property will be made live on the major property portals including Rightmove, Zoopla and On The Market 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.
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. We will always endeavour to give feedback within 24 hours of a viewing with the exception of weekends.
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 funds, mortgage offer in principal, contact with their mortgage broker 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 mortgage specialists who are 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. Speak to one of our representatives who can discuss this service in further detail.

The market will determine what the purchaser 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 an accurate asking price ensures that your time on the market is maximised. 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.
