Vendors - The Selling Process

We take pride in the property we market for our clients and our primary focus is to achieve the highest possible price in a timescale to suit you. We are realistic with our valuations and carry out extensive research prior to our valuation appointment and present you with comparable evidence to show you what has recently been sold and more importantly the competition you are up against at the time your property will be released to the market . As a result our clients are pleased with the results and this is proven in the numerous testimonials we receive. So how does the process start and what are the main points to remember?

 

1. The Valuation

Arranging a valuation is where it all begins. A member of our experienced sales team will have an honest discussion with you about the property and advise how we feel it will be best marketed so the highest level of interest is generated to obtain the best price and more importantly in a timescale to suit you.  We listen to your needs, address any concerns that you may have and also give advise on how to present your property for the viewing appointments.

  

2. Marketing The Property

Once you give us the instruction to market the property, we will arrange for one of the team to visit the property in order to draw up the floorplan, take professional photographs and create a video of the property.  It also gives them the opportunity to inspect your home so they are fully briefed and able to answer any questions prospective buyers may have. Once all measurements and pictures are taken, we will contact our current database of suitable applicants to tell them about your property and also release it to the open market via our own website as well as the main property portals such as:- Rightmove, Zoopla & Primelocation

 

3. Viewings & Feedback

When the property hits the websites we will receive calls and e-mails from prospective buyers looking to arrange appointments to view. We ensure all relevant information is taken on each applicant when registered such as; their current status (a first time buyer, have a property to sell or an investor), how they will be funding their purchase. After each viewing, we will contact you within 24 hours to give you detailed feedback. This is extremely useful to both you and us because it provides a clear understanding of what people think of your property and what, if anything, needs to be done in order to help its saleability.

 

4. Offers

When an offer is received, we will inform you straight away both verbally and in writing. The prospective buyer will be qualified and you will be made aware of all information relating to the offer. We will offer our opinion on how we see fit to proceed with one or indeed several offers and leave the decision with you.

 

5. Sale Agreed & Solicitors

Once an offer has been accepted we will confirm this in writing to both sides. You will then need to instruct a solicitor to start the conveyancing process. We work alongside several solicitors in the Wisbech area and can happily assist in providing a quote from any if not all of them. When we have both parties’ solicitor details we will send you a memorandum of sale confirming all details relating to the sale. This will also be sent to your buyer and both solicitors involved in the transaction.

 

6. Exchange Of Contracts

Once your buyer’s solicitor is satisfied with the replies to enquiries and all searches have come back, they will discuss a completion date with your solicitor and then arrange for the buyer to transfer their deposit. When the funds have been received and both sides have signed contracts, you are ready to exchange. At this point both sides are legally bound and completion (move date) will be soon there!

 

7. Completion

On the day of completion, your solicitor will inform you that the remaining funds have been received from the buyer’s solicitor. They will then inform us that we can release the keys to the new owner. We will put a friendly call in to congratulate you on the sale and wish you all the best for the future. Property sold!
