Your aim should be to sell your property at the best possible price in the shortest possible time, with the least amount of inconvenience.
Selecting An Estate Agent
When choosing an estate agent, consider when they will be available to conduct viewings, their High Street and Internet presence and what kind of marketing your property will receive.
Presenting Your Property
First impressions count, making the presentation of your property critical to a successful sale. Consider addressing any day jobs you have been meaning to get done, add a fresh coat of paint where necessary and try to tidy and declutter to make rooms appear larger.
Marketing & Viewings
To find your perfect buyer you need to give your property maximum exposure across a wide range of media. when you instruct Raine and Co to sell your property you will automatically benefit from exposure on all of the key property portals and our award-winning website, inclusion in monthly newspapers and magazines, full colour property details and regular email and SMS alerts to potential purchasers.
Receiving An Offer
As soon as an offer is received we will notify you and detail any special conditions, we will check the buyer’s ability to proceed before you decide whether to accept the offer.
Once you accept an offer we will confirm the agreed price in writing and request solicitors from both parties, we will prepare and send out the memorandum of sale.
Your solicitor will send out a draft contract to the buyer’s solicitor who will then raise any questions they may have. you will need to complete a property questionnaire and a fixture and fittings form detailing exactly what is included and excluded from the selling price.
The buyer, if needing a mortgage, will have to arrange to have a valuation upon your property and they may also arrange separate surveyors visit to detail the condition. we will liaise with solicitors throughout the selling process and we also negotiate, help and advise on your behalf through every detail of the sale to your prospective buyers.
Exchange Of Contracts
Exchange of contracts occurs when both parties have signed the contract and the buyer’s solicitor will then transfer the deposit to your solicitor. The completion date is then set by mutual agreement, if needed a removals company should be arranged at this time.
Completion is when the residual monies are transferred from the buyer’s solicitor to your solicitor’s account. Your solicitor will call you when the money has cleared in your account and will inform us to release the keys. Congratulations, your property is now sold!
