1. Accurate Valuation

You will want to sell your property at the best possible price in the shortest possible time.
Our experienced valuers carry out numerous valuations every month, giving us intimate and unparalleled knowledge of property values in your area and where possible we will endeavour to provide you with comparable evidence of property values.

2. Selecting Your Estate Agent

When making your choice of Estate Agent, consider: What are their opening hours? Do they open on Saturdays? The position of their office: Is it in a prominent position and will my property receive the full marketing exposure that it deserves? Will potential purchasers feel comfortable in their offices and do they offer all of the services that a purchaser will need? Is their website easy to use and navigate? Do they offer 3D floor plans and is there a financial advisor on the premises that can help you and qualify purchasers’ funding ability?

3. Presenting your property

First impressions count, making the presentation of your property is critical to a successful sale.
A fresh coat of paint, small jobs that have not been attended to and try to de-clutter to make rooms appear larger.

Holland Broadbridge will produce comprehensive descriptions, internal and external photographs, 2D and 3D floor plans (all of which would involve your personal authorisation), inclusion in our office display system and a ‘For Sale’ board (if required).

4. Marketing Your Property

When you instruct Holland Broadbridge to sell your property you will benefit from our comprehensive marketing package, including full colour property details, inclusion in our office display system, 3D floor plans, 3D virtual reality walk through tour and exposure on our website and major national portals including Rightmove and OnTheMarket.com.

5. Receiving an offer

As soon as an offer is received we will notify you immediately. We will check the buyer’s ability to proceed before you decide whether to accept the offer.

6. Offer agreed
Once you accept an offer we will do the following:

  • Prepare a memorandum of sale
  • Email/Write to all parties to confirm the agreed price
  • Email/Write to your solicitor with all of the details

Your solicitor will send out a draft contract to the buyer’s solicitor who will then carry out preliminary enquiries… At this stage you will also be able to agree on dates for the survey on your property, exchange of contracts and proposed date for completion.

We will advise you and negotiate on your behalf throughout this process, keeping you informed every step of the way.

There are no legal obligations until contracts are signed.

7. Exchange of Contracts
Exchange of contracts occurs when the following have been confirmed and agreed:

  • Preliminary enquiries following receipt of draft contract
  • Evidence of a good title
  • Specific issues highlighted in the Lease, if applicable
  • Local search enquiries
  • Fixtures and fittings to be included in the sale
  • The buyer’s mortgage offer

Once the contract has been signed by both parties the deposit (usually 10% of the purchase price) will be telegraphically transferred or paid in the form of a banker’s draft by the buyer’s solicitor to your solicitor. The completion date is then set by mutual agreement.

8. Completion

Completion is when the residual monies are transferred from the buyer’s solicitor to your solicitor’s account.

Your solicitor will call you when the money has cleared in your account and will inform us to release the keys.

Well done! Your property is now sold.

We hope that your experience has been both efficient and professional at all times and we look forward to dealing with you, your family, friends and acquaintances again in the future.
