1. Instruct a professional agency
Choosing the right agency to sell your property is a crucial step in the process. We offer a free no obligation consultation, so as you can make sure we are the right agency for you.
We are honest and clear in our advice, providing you with realistic opinions on value and direction to help you to maximise value.
2. Precise open market valuation
Our commitment is to achieving the maximum result for our clients. That means selling your property at the highest possible price in a time frame that meets your expectations.. Through our knowledge of the market and their expertise, we are able to provide our clients with an extensive knowledge of property values.
3. Professional photography and floorplans
Perfect presentation is essential to a successful sale. We are experienced in assisting you with presenting your property in an attractive manner, offering advice on cosmetic improvements, and de-cluttering in order to make your property appear spacious. We compile professional sales particulars including floor plans and professional in house photography.
Visibility is key when marketing any property and in order to generate positive levels of interest you need to be sure that your property will benefit from comprehensive marketing and maximum exposure.
Working with Selectiv Properties to sell your property guarantees that you will benefit from a premium marketing package. Our brand new website provides a fantastic platform from which to market your property, along with providing high profile adverts on nationally recognised property websites and social media.
When viewings cannot be carried out by the seller, we can arrange for accompanied viewings by a member of our team.
6. Receiving an offer
Timing is everything. We will inform you as soon as we receive an offer both verbally and in writing. We will also provide our advice as to whether we feel the offer is worth progressing.
We will advise you of and explain any special conditions attached to the offer, as well as ascertaining the prospective purchaser’s ability to proceed.
7. Instruct a solicitor
Following acceptance of an offer we will ask you to confirm your solicitor details. You will need a solicitor or licensed conveyancer to act on your behalf during the selling process.
We appreciate that selling a home can be a costly experience, however we do encourage you not to choose a solicitor based on their fees alone. We strongly advise using a firm that has local knowledge, our experience has shown that online solicitors or ones that have little or no experience of the local area can delay the process and cause unnecessary stress.
Selectiv Properties work with a number of local solicitors and can provide you with a quote, please ask for details.
With that said, our role is to ensure we take as much of the stress out of the selling process and will work with whoever you chose to appoint – after all, it’s your sale.
8. Sales progression
Once solicitors are appointed we will prepare a memorandum of sale.
The stages that follow will include your solicitor drafting a contract and sending it to the purchaser’s solicitor. They will arrange and oversee preliminary enquiries, agree survey dates, exchange of contracts and a preliminary date for completion.
Our role throughout the process is to facilitate the sale by continually negotiating and driving the transaction forward on your behalf, ensuring minimal time and complications in completing.
Unlike many online estate agents, our dedicated staff will work hard to provide a service that makes the process as simple and efficient as possible for all parties concerned, ensuring we liaise with estate agents and solicitors involved in your chain.
Completion takes place when the residual balance of monies (typically 90%) are transferred from the buyers solicitor to your solicitors account. You will receive confirmation from your solicitor that they are in funds and this will trigger the release of keys.
