Step by Step Guide to Selling

We understand that selling houses is stressful. You need someone who understands your needs and who can deliver the results you want. At Belvoir Stoke, we take a pro-active approach to sell your house and to drive it to completion.

1. Book an appraisal

Contact us to arrange a suitable time for us to visit. We will give you a sales appraisal and discuss what preparations or repairs you may need to maximise your sale price. We will discuss marketing strategy to achieve the best price in the shortest time-frame. Our commissions start at 0%, so call us for an appraisal and choose the right package for you.

2. Instruct us to sell

When you have decided to use us to sell your house, we will both have to sign our agreement (because legal stuff have to apply!). Then we will visit the property again to take professional photographs and understand more about your property so we can emphasise every feature to potential buyers. Aerial photography is also available to show off some houses! We will measure up to prepare a 3-dimensional floor plan. We will then produce a professional property brochure for your approval.

3. Marketing begins 

We then advertise your property on Rightmove, On The Market, Boomin, NetHousePrices, Belvoir website as well as email and social media marketing. We also match your property with buyers on our database. We actively email and call anyone we know who may be interested.

4. Negotiating your sale

Our office will arrange viewing appointments to suit you, ensuring that our sales negotiator conducts the viewings. We fully qualify any potential buyers, their financial position and ensure they are in a position to proceed. We would not want to waste your time with people who are not in a position to buy. Our team of negotiators also ensure the best possible price is secured for your property. We do not pressure you to accept a low price, just so we can collect commissions. On average, Belvoir Stoke has negotiated buyers upwards £3000-£5000 from initial offer to offer accepted.

We will ring you soon after each viewing to give you some viewing feedback. We promise to communicate with you to keep you informed throughout this process.

5. Fixed-fee conveyancing

We work with good solicitors to help our sellers complete their sales. We can recommend several good solicitors to carry out the legal conveyancing for you. We can obtain a fixed fee quote for you, so you can budget knowing there won’t be hidden costs. Some of our solicitors operate online 24/7 portals where you can check the progress of your case, keeping you informed every step of the way.

6. Progressing to completion

Once your house is “sold subject to contract”, this is where most agents will sit back and leave it to the solicitors. Approximately 30% of sales fall through before completion, due to survey problems, mortgage problems, legal problems etc. Without completion, your house isn’t sold! This is where we make a huge differenceWith our managing director being a trained solicitor, we will pro-actively keep track of the conveyancing process, chasing solicitors at very opportunity. We also have mortgage brokers to solve the buyer’s mortgage problems and trades contractors to solve repair problems. With the rapport we build with buyers, we will also speak to buyers directly to calm any fears, to keep the sale on track.

7. Moving day!

It’s time to move on to the next chapter. On moving day, we will wait for the go-ahead from your solicitor before releasing the keys to your buyer. We are here to help you with your move if you need contacts such as cleaners, packing and removals people and any other tradesmen.
