Prior To Our Visit
Using both our experience, our extensive database, Rightmove, Zoopla, Prime Location and The Land Registry we will review all sales in your neighbourhood and prepare a personalised market report for you. We will bring this on our appointment.
We offer two sales packages:
- Our traditional full service no sale no fee package 1% + vat.
- Our Hybrid service for £850 + vat for the vendor who is keen to be more involved. Again, this is no sale no fee.
We will explain both these services at the appointment and you can then decide.
At Your Property
We will ask you all types of questions about your property including why you bought your home originally. We would like to know why you are selling and your desired timescale.
Estate Agents need to know if there are any issues with the property which might affect the sale or the value of the property. Examples of this could be rights of way or boundary disputes.
To sell your home we need to present it in the best possible light. See our Essential Selling Guide which is crammed with tips on how to present your home.
We will ask you to escort us around your home and point out all the features that add to your homes appeal.
We will answer any questions you may have.
We will then present our marketing report and agree a price for your home.
After You Instruct Us
We will ask you to sign our sales agreement.
We will make an appointment to measure rooms, prepare floorplans and take a series of professional photographs. If an EPC is required we will arrange for it to be undertaken.
To comply with money laundering legislation, we will require proof of identity.
We will place an initial eye-catching description on Rightmove, Zoopla, Prime Location and our website.
We will contact registered buyers who may be interested in your property.
Once we have the photographs, floorplan, EPC a full set of details will be produced, these will be sent to you for your perusal and posted on the property portals and our website.
Marketing Going Forward
All viewings are accompanied by a member of Seekers staff. We prefer owners not to be present during viewings but that would be your decision. The reason being that buyers are often more relaxed when the owner is not there and the agent is more in control! Owners often apologise for their property which is never a good plan or over sell the property.
Our fully trained estate agents know how to conduct a successful viewing, listen to positive signs and deal with any questions.
You will receive feedback after the viewing - even if just to say we haven’t heard back from the viewers yet.
You will receive regular updates and we may send you activity reports from the portals.
The Offer & The Sale
You will receive notification of any offer in writing as well as receiving an immediate phone call from us.
We will obtain all relevant information from the buyer such as mortgage details, any linked sale of a property, conveyancer and so on. We will want to see proof of funds for the deposit where there is a mortgage or the whole purchase price if a cash purchase.
We will advise on acceptance of an offer. We will negotiate with the buyer to receive the highest offer that is obtainable. We will find out whether the offer is conditional i.e. are carpets & curtains to be included.
All the above is relevant to whether you accept the offer or not.
Once all parties are happy, we will issue the memorandums of sale to the conveyancers. We will recommend a good firm for your consideration.
We can also arrange quotations for your own mortgage and removals.
During the sale process we will progress the sale, keeping in touch with mortgage providers and conveyancers to ensure there are no unnecessary delays.In many ways sales progression is the most important part of the whole transaction.
We will see it through to completion and your home move.
We will ask you , if you would be kind enough to provide us with a testimonial
