Fill in our valuation form and get your free report instantly. Once you have received this we will conduct a free appraisal on the property, you can do this here.
In the meantime, here are a few guidelines which we hope will assist:
Instruction of the agent / property details
Having received your valuation, and provided that you are satisfied with it, we will then proceed to prepare full sales details of your property. We will ensure that your sales details highlight the vitally important aspects of your property and ensure that your home is shown to its best possible advantage with the aid of professional photographs.
Once you have seen and approved our particulars of your home, you will then be in a position to receive prospective buyers. Appointments to view your property are arranged by us and we can either host the viewings on your behalf or you may do this yourself. Hosted viewings can be arranged to show prospective buyers around your home should you be unable to do so.
Your property is now ready to market and we offer the following:
for sale board - This is the most simple and effective marketing tool.
office and window display - External and internal photographs will be prominently displayed in our premises in order to optimise local exposure of your property.
email - We have hundreds of prospective buyers and investors for residential and commercial properties on our waiting lists. They will usually be notified within 24 hours of your property going live.
buyer calls - We have a good relationship with our prospective buyers and investors and regularly update them by phone when a new property comes onto the market, matching their price range and location preference.
website - This is updated daily and full colour details of your home are placed on our website as well as Zoopla and Prime Location.
Any offers we receive are promptly verbally notified and then followed up in writing. Our competent sales team will negotiate between you and your prospective applicant in order to achieve the strongest buyer. We will inform you every week on the position of the buyers and liaise with you until an accepted offer has been agreed. Should you require your sale to be completed by a certain date, this is when you should notify us and we will endeavour to satisfy your request wherever possible.
At this point, we will act as a go between for yourself and the purchaser and, once agreed, will send you the final acceptance. If you have not already done so you will need to instruct a solicitor and we will be more than happy to recommend expert, local firms.
The solicitors will then write to all parties and the buyers will instruct a surveyor to conduct a survey of your property (the “agreed sale” is subject to the contract and any survey) and the buyers’ mortgage offer (if required) will also be subject to the results of the survey.
The sellers’ solicitors will request the title deeds from the lender (if appropriate) or yourselves as the seller and the fixtures and fittings form must be completed at this stage.
The solicitors draw up the draft contract which sets out the Terms of the Sale and sends it to the buyers’ solicitor together with all relevant documents. Any enquiries will then be raised, the Title Deeds and Lease (if applicable) will be checked and local searches carried out
Once the draft contracts have been approved, it can be signed by both parties.
Exchange of Contracts
As long as the mortgage offer has been received and cleared funds placed with your buyer’s solicitor, a mutually convenient date can be agreed upon for the exchange of contracts.
The completion and your actual house move and take between 7 to 28 days depending on the buyers, sellers and their respective solicitors. ABS Properties Ltd will deduct their fees when the solicitors also deduct their costs upon completion of the sale.
