frequently asked questions

Let us help answer some of the most common questions to do with selling a property

It is not obligatory, however many buyer enquiries come from people who have seen a ‘for sale’ sign on a property because of the increased visibility that it can bring to your property, so we do strongly recommend it. We will always carry out the necessary checks to ensure we are permitted to display a board within your grounds or on your building.

First impressions count and therefore play a big part in the selling potential of your property.You should consider the following:

  • Think like a buyer – look at your property through a buyer’s eyes and identify areas that you think require improvement.
  • Reduce clutter and keep décor neutral – keep rooms and surfaces clean and tidy, and décor neutral. This will allow the buyer to visualize the space with their own furniture and belongings.
  • Keep it light – clean the windows and open all the curtains to encourage natural light into your property.
  • Consider the exterior – the outside of your property plays a big part in a buyer's first impressions. Well-cared for and maintained outside spaces will help to make a great first impression.

An Open Day is when a property is marketed through viewings when buyers are invited to view the home in one day rather than spread out over a few weeks by appointment only. You don’t have to have an open day, but it allows you to sell your property more quickly with interested buyers submitting their offers via sealed bid and the best offer wins.

It is important that before selling your property, you understand its current market value. A property valuation will provide a guide price…

There are different ways to obtain a property valuation. If you are selling a property, we will not charge you to estimate a market value of your property. If you are buying a property and require a mortgage, your mortgage lender will carry out a mortgage valuation. This is a basic survey of a property to assess its value and suitability for a mortgage. Additionally, when you are buying a property you may want to carry out a more in-depth valuation and instruct surveyors to complete a homebuyer’s report or building survey.

A property for sale requires a number of legal documents to be produced, including:

  • Property title deeds.
  • Local authority searches.
  • Draft contract to the buyer.
  • Leasehold document.
