Selling Your Home in 7 Easy Steps

#1 Valuation

The first stage in selling your property, is finding out exactly how much it is worth. We will provide you with a free market valuation based on the size, location and condition of your property, taking into consideration your expectations and local market conditions.

#2 Listing Your Property for Sale

Once we have agreed on the suggested sales price, we will list your property in our agency, in local publications, and on our website to ensure the best possible exposure. We’ll also put up a ‘For Sale’ sign and mail out the details to our huge database of potential buyers in High Wycombe, Marlow, Maidenhead and Beaconsfield as part of our marketing strategy.

#3 Property Review & Recommendations

Now that your property is officially ‘for sale’ it’s time to get it in top condition for those first inspection visits. First impressions really do count, and so we offer a complete property review service that will highlight those areas that need improving. Something as simple as a fresh coat of paint and a freshly mowed lawn can make a huge difference to a potential purchaser.

#4 Property Viewings

You sales support agent will take care of all property viewings and keep you up-to-date with feedback from potential buyers.

#5 Offers

Our aim is to secure you the best possible price for your property. All offers will be qualified financially by our negotiations team, before a verbal and written confirmation is issued to both parties. This ensures that the sale can go through as quickly as possible should you accept the offer.

#6 Sale Agreed & Exchange of Contracts

Once the sales price has been agreed by both parties, we will confirm it in writing and begin the transaction process with your solicitors (buyers and sellers), who will provide all the necessary legal paperwork. At this stage, the sale is still subject to contract, and surveys, local searches etc. may be carried out by the buyer’s solicitors or mortgage providers before the paperwork is signed. When all questions have been answered, mortgage funds have been secured, and the solicitor is happy with the legal paperwork, an exchange of contracts will take place and the sale becomes legally binding.

#7 Sale Completion

Both the buyer and the seller will agree on the completion date, which is generally 7 – 10 days after the contracts have been exchanged. At which time you had over the keys to the new owner.
