Getting your property on the market
Once you’ve decided you want to sell your property the first step is to invite an estate agent round to value your home. This will give you a clear idea of what you can potentially sell your property for in the current local property market, help manage your expectations regarding your next property move and budget and also assist when deciding which estate agent to work with. From our own experience having a friendly agent who you like and get on with is a BIG plus point. By working in partnership together, it will help make selling your home so much easier. Your agent will be there for you throughout the selling process offering professional advice and guiding you through each step to make it as stress-free as possible.
Choosing the right agent
Crucially, you’ll need to employ the services of an estate agent in order to advertise on property websites, but an agent’s work goes far beyond this. A good agent knows the area your property is situated in like the back of their hand, can give you honest advice about what to expect and be able to suggest a marketing strategy specific to your property that will result in a sale as quickly as possible.
We pride ourselves on being innovative when it comes to marketing. We ensure you have maximum exposure through all four of the UK’s largest property portals: Rightmove, Zoopla, OnTheMarket and Prime Location and we do not charge additional fees for floor plans or photography. Online statistics have shown that floor plans generate increased interest and professional standard photographs are essential for creating a good first impression, so we fully appreciate how vital these aspects are to marketing your property.
Viewings and offers
Once your property is on the market a member of the Michael Jones team will call you to arrange viewings and put forward offers. All viewings will be accompanied by a member of our staff and once an offer is received, we will work on your behalf to negotiate and obtain the best possible price for your property.
SOLD! Accepting an offer
Once you accept an offer you will need a solicitor to act for you in order to legally transfer ownership to the buyer. At your earliest convenience you should provide us with the contact details of your chosen solicitor so we can kickstart the conveyancing process as swiftly and as smoothly as possible. You will also be asked to supply us with proof of ID which will help us to move things along more easily.
If you are thinking of selling and have any questions, we are very happy to help. Visit your local branch today or call 01903 213 111 to speak with one of our friendly team.
