frequently asked questions

should I look for a property before I market my house?

It is important that you know the kind of property that you are looking for before you market yours. However, you won’t be able to secure a property until you have a buyer.

what happens if I don’t find a property?

Within reason, many buyers will wait for you to find a property. In the unlikely event that you can’t find a suitable home you don’t have to pay us anything.

which estate agent should I choose?

The most important thing is that you feel comfortable and confident with the agent you instruct. In this market it’s not only about selling your property but facilitating a move, so have a look who’s got the most sold boards in your area, who has the most available properties for your next home and read estate agent reviews before making a decision – the best website for this is allagents.co.uk.

why should I choose a local estate agent over an internet agent?

Case studies suggest that, due to the local knowledge from high street agents and their extensive database, local estate agents achieve higher sale prices and shorter transaction periods.

how will I know I am asking the right price?

Valuing a home isn’t an exact science and there are many things to consider. The location, style and size of the accommodation are usually the most important factors, together with the condition of the property and any improvements that may have been carried out. Together with our vast area knowledge as local estate agents, we research recent sales in the area and take current demand into account.

will I receive feedback following viewings?

Definitely! We pride ourselves on excellent communication and provide an update on your property viewings within 24/48 hours.

should I take my property off the market once I have accepted an offer?

Your buyers will usually expect you to remove the property from the market whilst they arrange for their survey and mortgage valuation. In certain circumstances it may be better to continue marketing the property, for example if the buyer’s chain is incomplete - as long as the buyer is kept informed of your intentions.

do I have to pay Stamp Duty?

No, the buyer is responsible for paying Stamp Duty.

when do I have to move out?

On the completion date, which is mutually agreed by yourself and the buyer.
