It’s your choice...
We can market your property for sale on a sole agency basis which means we are the only agents marketing your property for sale. We are happy to work alongside other agents at the same time, this is called multi-agency.
All of our properties are advertised on www.rightmove.co.uk
Your property will stay on Rightmove until your property is sold, we will list the property as “under offer” when a sale has been agreed right through to exchange of contracts.
We will accompany all viewings and will never ask or expect you to show potential buyers around your property, we will also give you honest & candid feedback after every viewing, we know how frustrating it is to be kept waiting !
Our Sales team will check that any potential buyers are in a position to proceed before they come and view. Most serious buyers will have already spoken to a mortgage advisor or their own bank to find out how much they can afford to borrow and will have an agreement in principle from a Lender. There is no point showing somebody around a property who simply can’t afford to buy it . We work closely with an independent financial advisor who is on hand to chat with our buyers and sellers if required.
Our conscientious staff will see your sale through to exchange of contracts , we will speak to solicitors on your behalf and any other agents involved in the chain and will give you a progress update on your sale on a weekly basis or more regularly if needed.
We don’t believe in signing up our Vendors to a lengthy sole agency period, all we ask is that you sign up with us for 6 weeks. You simply give us notice one week before the end of the 6 weeks in the unlikely event that you don’t want to stay with us.
We constantly check market conditions to ensure that our valuation of your property is as accurate as possible. (in fact we live & breath Estate Agency)
