Selling your home is not without a certain amount of stress.
It is not a difficult process but one that needs patience and communication with all involved parties.
Fenwicks will present a marketing plan for your home which includes our suggested marketing price. When appointed to market your property, will guide you through the selling process. Before we start marketing, sellers are legally required to provide:
- Contract signed by all sellers – this protects the sellers.
- ID photographs and documents of all sellers.
- Proof of Ownership.
- In date Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
- Probate if applicable
- Power of Attorney if applicable
- Detailed Property Questionnaire
We visit to prepare, measure and photograph in preparation for:
- Brochure – information to be agreed by the sellers
- Window Card
- Prime Location
- Social Media
Our Property Information Sheet - to answer questions posed by likely purchasers.
Sales and Negotiation
- We arrange, confirm and conduct viewings. All viewings are confirmed with seller.
- (some buyers will have several viewings and or bring parents or builders etc)
- WE Negotiate and YOU agree Selling Price.
- We ensure buyer has funds and we check with all related agents to ensure buyer can proceed.
Only then, is your property "Sold Subject to Contract".
- Seller is advised to engage a local Solicitor
- We send Memorandum of Sale to all parties
- We become heavily involved with Seller’s and buyer’s solicitors in exchanging information who conduct necessary legal searches to prepare the sales contract.
- We facilitate any surveys for the buyer.
- Sometimes, there may be a renegotiation of agreed price.
- Facilitate moving dates.
- Solicitors will EXCHANGE contracts which becomes a legal undertaking on buyer and seller
- Final step is to COMPLETE the transaction. We can only hand over keys to buyer on the authority of our client or seller’s solicitor when they receive funds from the buyer’s solicitor.
Should I have a market appraisal if I am not selling?
An appraisal is valuable at any time as market conditions can change. Regularly checking the market value of your property and local market trends makes good financial sense and can impact your current and future financial wellbeing.
