Buyers FAQ

Determining your home’s market value is a very important and key factor into selling your property for what it is worth. We can offer you a free one-to-one appraisal where one of our experienced and knowledgeable local agents will do a comparative market analysis to ensure the correct listing price is calculated for you. To do this we look at recent sales of comparable homes, similar homes that are under contract, and homes that are listed in the same price range of your home. Comparing the features of the homes such as size, style, number of rooms, age of the home, amenities, condition, and local neighbourhood. If you are interested in requesting a free market appraisal, then please get in contact.

The key to getting the best value for your property is to make sure you give yourself as much time as possible to sell. We recommend that as soon as you are ready to move, let’s get that property on the market for you. The longer the property is on the market, the more potential buyers result in seeing it. If you don’t end up receiving as many offers as you were hoping for then it also allows for extra time to consider different routes and options for your home.

This is a variable depending on lots of other factors. To ensure your property sells as quickly as possible we will do everything, we can present your home in the best light possible. Ensuring it is seen on as many online portals as possible, creating professional advertising materials and relying on our experienced agents to source the perfect buyers. Typically, our properties don’t stay on the market long, however if it is taking a little longer than expected we will investigate what could be causing this and get the ball rolling.

As part of our package, we instruct ‘For Sale’ signs to be placed outside of the properties. By doing this we can maximise the awareness of your property by attracting attention from passers-by. We hope that this also gets people talking and spreads the news of your property by word of mouth. However, if you prefer not to you don’t have to display one but please do make us aware.

We will liaise with you to find out the most convenient times to conduct viewings at your home and will always ensure that we are available at these times to accompany a viewing so you don’t have to worry about meeting prospective buyers. If you would prefer for us to conduct these viewings whilst you are at work or away, then we operate a secure key system. By confidently leaving us a key one of our experienced sales agents can easily show your home to viewers uninterrupted.

As the world becomes more and more digital, the majority of buyers are now starting their property search online. To make sure we are appealing to this market we ensure maximum online exposure for your home with your property being marketed on our website as well as featuring on our social media to maximise reach. Just under 100% of potential buyers head straight to property portals which is good news as we advertise on Rightmove, On the market and Zoopla. On these platforms we will present the prospective buyer with stunning photography and expertly crafted videos to showcase your property. We will also highlight your property onto a window card placed in our central Brighton office location which reaches many other clients walking past.

As soon as your property is on the market, we advise you to instruct a solicitor. This will allow your solicitor time to prepare all legal documents before a buyer is found and help them prepare for you sale, shortening the process between agreeing a sale and completion.

When we receive an offer, we make sure you are made aware of this straight away so that you can go and take the time to make an informed decision, we will make sure all buyers are financially qualified and will also provide you with any details of potential buyers to make sure your sale will go as smoothly as possible. It is also in our interest as well as yours to make sure the maximum sale price is received for your property – If an offer is not acceptable, we will always negotiate this on your behalf until this is satisfactory.

Before selling your home, you will need a up to date EPC – This is something we can always arrange on your behalf and won’t take longer than a week to get this up to date. You will also need to take the time to fill out a contract, property questionnaire and complete an online verification process for compliance. We are always happy pick up the phone to go over any questions you are unsure about and find out any information you are unable to gather!

Of course! Just as we keep you updated when your property is on the market with viewings and offers etc we will also make sure to keep you updated throughout the sale process. We will chase solicitors daily for updates and are always a phone call away to reassure you on any worries you may have while your sale is going through.
