Selling your property is one of the most important financial events of your life and so it is only right that you choose an estate agent that has your best interest at heart. At our estate agency we will personally invest in the sale of your home and therefore deliver the best outcome for you.

“Estate agency is evolving and adapting to the needs of today’s client we have seen many changes over the past 30 or so years. The old ‘shop window’ is no longer needed and buyers are not waiting for the local newspaper to arrive on a Thursday. Committed buyers have telephone and email alerts to flag up new properties to market the moment they appear online and simply click a link to learn more and book a viewing”.

Today it’s not unusual for estate agents to operate away from the High st…we ourselves have a ‘Hub’ office in Cirencester. We recognise that buyers and sellers are not the same nowadays and one service doesn’t fit all. With this in mind, we have redefined the way that our clients instruct us, by developing unique marketing packages that suit all needs.

Our Guide to Selling

We have a number of ways to approach this, so we will discuss the options that are available to you. We feel that no other agent offers the comprehensive range that we do!

The Valuation

We like to start with a chat on the phone to discuss your property and your plans moving forwards, from this we will provide you with two FREE market appraisal reports. They will detail an approx. valuation and properties that have recently sold near you. We will then discuss our fees with you and any commission that we may charge. If you like the sound of all of this, we’ll arrange a mutual day to meet at your home to confirm our marketing plan and asking price.

Exchange Ready

We like to think well ahead of the game, so it’s at this point we will connect you and with our recommend solicitors so they can take you through getting ready for exchange. We have trialled this and found that being ‘exchange ready’ early on can save on delays further down the line, the outcome has been fewer fall throughs and completion time saved of up to 4 – 6 weeks.

First Impressions

Creating the right impression is very important when selling your property. We can give you advice and guidance on how to create the best ambience within your home.

Photography

The best agents will only use the highest quality images to promote your home. First impressions do count; therefore, we want to ensure the photographs leave a lasting impression with potential buyers.

Floor Plans

We will create individual floor plans for each property to allow buyers to visualise the layout of your home and envisage how they would live there.

Marketing Your Home

Marketing your home well is essential. A variety of on-line portals are available, we concentrate on investing time and money into those that have our best interest at heart which will introduce the very best buyers for your home.

Sale Boards

We understand that the ‘FOR SALE’ board still proves itself as a strategic way of advertising your home. It generates interest through word of mouth from neighbours and passers-by to potential buyers.

Email Marketing

We have a modern and updated database of clients that we can match up with your property. This proactive approach ensures each prospective buyer is contacted by a personal call or email to let them know your property is listed for sale.

Social Media

In today’s modern digital world, we have a huge following on social media, such as; Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, TikTok & Pinterest, we would like to expose your property to this incredible form of advertising – equally if you would prefer us not to, then please just let us know.

Accompanied Viewings

We believe that accompanied viewings are essential and the best way to sell your home, however, in these troubled times we may suggest a virtual/video viewing first. If we need to provide a physical viewing, we will take the appropriate steps to secure yours and their safety regarding Covid-19. We recommend that you vacate the property while we accompany any viewings.

All viewers are qualified before they physically view your property establishing their contact details and buying position. We will not arrange viewings for buyers that are just generally looking or want to compare with other properties they ae viewing unless they can convince us otherwise. Same day feedback will be provided via text, WhatsApp or email and then followed up by phone if possible, the very next day.

Offers

Whether the sale of your property is negotiated with a single buyer, or it sells at a closing date, we will guide you through every step of the process. When we receive an offer from a potential buyer, we will clarify the chain details if any and request financial proof that the purchase is achievable. We will let you know immediately and negotiate on your behalf to reach a price that is acceptable to you. We will always give you an honest recommendation on each offer received.

Accepting an Offer

When an offer is accepted, we will suggest our recommended solicitors to act on your behalf and notify the buyers solicitor of all the relevant details.

Exchange of Contracts

When both solicitors are ready and all involved have agreed a mutual completion date, your solicitor will request relevant fees and deposits to be held on account in preparation of exchange of contracts. When this happens, we will contact you and confirm the completion date and offer further advice recommending removal companies etc.

Completion Day

From having your offer accepted or agreeing the sale of your own property, there is likely to be between 8 & 14 weeks in between. If you are selling with us, we request that you deliver your keys to our office when your removal company have packed your items in their vehicles and have finished. If you are buying with us, we will contact you once we have received notification from the vendors solicitor giving authority to release keys – you are then welcome to call into our office to collect the keys to your new home.
