We’re registered and accredited by The Property Redress Scheme www.theprs.co.uk and follow their code of practice, so you can be confident in the way that we work.

And we take a personal approach, so we’ll be on hand to help with any questions you have along the way.

How we’ll help you to sell your property

We’ll do everything we can to help you to sell your property smoothly and at the right price. We can advise you on anything you need to do first, including repairs, decorating or how to make it look its best in the photographs.

We’ll put a ‘For Sale’ board on, or beside, your property, feature it on our website and show it on our window display in our office windows. And we’ll add it to Zoopla.co.uk, Rightmove.co.uk, PrimeLocation.com and other property search sites.

We also have an up-to-date list of potential buyers and we’ll let those people know that you have a place to sell.



Your valuation

We always aim to give a realistic market appraisal based upon the current property market, rather than an inflated, or unrealistic, sales price.

We’ll keep a set of keys so that you don’t need to be around for viewings. We keep these safely locked away when not needed and we always accompany people who view your property.

We’ll always arrange viewings for the days and times that work for you, whether on weekdays, evenings or at weekends. And we always give you feedback, together with suggestions to help you sell your place, based upon the comments we receive from potential buyers.

Commission

We offer a competitive commission rate based on whether you ask us to be your sole estate agent, or if you decide to list your property with more than one estate agency. If you choose us as your sole agency our rate is 1.75% + VAT. And if you also list your property with other agencies our rate is 2.5% + VAT.

There will be no fee if the property is not sold.

Other services

We work with a number of reliable and competitive local services and can recommend a mortgage advisor and local solicitor, if needed. We can also recommend local builders, decorators, plumbers and electricians.

What you will need to do

Before selling your place

Before we can sell your property on your behalf there are a few things that you’ll need to do first.

Sales agreement

Your first step is to sign the sales agreement that we’ll give you. We can’t begin advertising your property without this.

Photos and description

We’ll need to take photos and write a property description, which you’ll need to confirm as accurate and approve before we start marketing your property.

Keys

It’s helpful if we can keep a set of keys for the property, so that we’re able to take people to view it when you’re not there.

Sale board

We’ll put a ‘For Sale’ board on, or beside, your property. Please tell us if you prefer not to have this.

Energy Performance Certificate

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is valid for 10 years and gives:

  • information about a property’s energy use and typical energy costs
  • recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money
  • the property’s energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient)

By law, you must have an EPC before you can market your property for sale. And we must show this certificate to potential buyers before they view your property.

To get an EPC, you’ll need to use an accredited assessor. We can do this on your behalf at a cost of £99 (inc VAT).

You can read more about EPCs on the GOV.UK website by searching for ‘Energy Performance Certificate’.

Other things to think about

Paying attention to the small details can help you to sell your place quickly. Potential buyers will want to be able to imagine themselves in your place and it’s harder for them to do that if it’s untidy or needs cleaning.

We recommend that you have a bit of a tidy up before we take the photos – things such as making the beds, clearing dishes from the sink and putting away laundry can make a big difference and are easy to do.

You may also want to fix anything that’s obviously broken, such as a door that sticks, or give a fresh lick of paint to any walls that have become marked.

Doing these things may not increase the value of your property, but will help to make it look its best for potential buyers.
