Selling Process

1  Market Appraisal

In most circumstances your property is normally your biggest asset; therefore when you decide to sell it you quite clearly wish to obtain the best price. With this in mind you rely on skilled professionals with local experience to guide you on the correct valuation. A professional agent will have a good range of comparable evidence of sold prices in your area and the local knowledge to back it up.

2  Choosing Your Estate Agent

When choosing an estate agent it is not always the highest valuation or the lowest commission that will be in your best interests. If the valuation is too high your property may remain in the estate agency’s portfolio for a number of weeks without any interest. This can result in the property looking losing its appeal.

A low commission can look very attractive when considering your overall budget but costs may inevitably be cut somewhere. However, it could become a costly decision if your property is not marketed effectively and presented professionally with high-quality images, floor plans and particulars. A major consideration should be where your property will advertised. A high-street presence and regular opening hours should certainly lend confidence to your choice of agent. A confident and responsible estate agency will be at your side all the way throughout the process providing you with the best advice gained over years of experience.

3  Presenting Your Property

Clearly the advice here is to present your property looking at its best. The more attractive a property looks, the higher level of interest it will create. This is one important area that is under your control and where you can maximise your property’s potential.

5  Choosing & Instructing Your Solicitors
