Before arranging a current sales market appraisal we suggest that you thoroughly
check the condition of your property and make any necessary repairs or alterations.
It is also important that you locate the deeds to the property before it is put
on the market.
JAC Strattons will offer you a current market appraisal and recommend a quoting
price at which to market your property. We always suggest that you obtain at least
two further independent appraisals to allow the property to be placed on the market
at a level that will maximise its value and yet be attractive to potential purchasers.
It is also essential to appoint a solicitor to handle the sale. This is called conveyancing.
Your consultant can also recommend a reputable legal representative if required.
On receiving your instructions to sell the property, we will fully market your property
to ensure maximum coverage and exposure. We will require an Energy Performance Certificate
for your home which is a legal requirement. Our service includes floor plans, colour
photos, advertising in magazines together with all the major property internet sites
and on our own bespoke website. With your permission we will also install a "For
Sale" board outside your property. Your consultant will be able to discuss the range
of marketing methods available.
Viewings and Offers
Our specialist estate agency software will automatically match registered buyers
to your property and immediately provide you with a list of potential buyers. Your
consultant will contact any potential buyers and arrange to conduct as many viewings
as possible with suitable buyers having checked heir status including their ability
to afford your property and if they are in any chains. On receiving an offer for
your property, we will contact you by phone, email and post. Apart from negotiating
the sale price on your behalf, your consultant will also liaise between solicitors
and assist in arranging a date for exchange of contracts and completion thereafter.
Once a sale has been agreed by both the seller and the buyer, the solicitors for
both parties will prepare the necessary documentation. On exchange of contracts,
the buyer will usually pay a deposit of between 5-10% of the purchase price, and
a completion date will be agreed by all parties when ownership is transferred. Congratulations.
You have successfully sold your property!
Expenses involved in the selling process include:
- Energy Performance Certificate
- Agent's fees
- Moving costs

Top Selling Tips
To ensure a smooth selling process, we suggest you consider the following:
- Don't allow the decor to reflect your personality by overaccessorising your property
- First impressions are very important. Ensure that rooms are light and bright to
make prospective buyers feel welcome. An inviting home is a saleable home.
- Ensure that all utilities including electricity, gas and water have safe fittings
and supply routes to prevent problems later.
- The correct pricing is the key to a successful sale. Information from the Land Registry
as to property prices achieved in your road or your block of flats is freely available
on the web.
- To avoid disappointment, make sure that your selling price is achievable.
