1) BOOK YOUR FREE APPRAISAL
Pricing plays an important role with a number of factors to consider. An independent assessment of your property will be carried out by Kate of Roe & Co,
During the visit I will do the following
A guided tour of your property
Draw a floorpan to establish the floor space to carry out an accurate valuation
Explain to you how Kate will sell your home
If you are happy with me and the service I offer on the valuation and wish for me to help sell your home, I can prepare your advert for you there and then and have you on the market within 24 -48 hours.
2) INSTRUCTING ROE & CO
Should you choose to instruct me after the valuation has taken place, I will arrange a suitable time to visit the property in order to take professional photographs, create a floorplan, take room measurements and note down key information about your property. I will give guidance on how to prepare and present your property to its full potential which is also known as staging. I am trained in photography & have many years experience of photographing thousands of homes.
If you require an Energy Performance Certificate and you wish for me to arrange it, once payment has been received I will arrange a day for the Energy Assessor to come to your home. This needs to be carried out within the 7 days of marketing your home. Should it not be provided we will have to put you onto a marketing break as we would be breaking the law and both the Estate Agent and seller can receive a fine of up to £1000.
3) LAUNCHING YOUR PROPERTY ONLINE
Once I have taken your photographs, edited them, drawn your floorplan and created your brochure, you will receive a copy of your brochure within 48 hours to check that you're happy with the marketing of your home. Then, as soon as you've checked and authorised your advert, you will be on my website & Rightmove almost instantly. If agreed, we will also arrange for a “For Sale” board to be erected where appropriate.
4) VIEWINGS AND FEEDBACK
As you’d expect, prospective buyers are vetted before a suitable time is agreed and every enquiry is answered, thereby ensuring that every lead and opportunity is processed. Communication is a key focus of mine, valuing the importance of providing regular market report updates, discussing the performance of your listing and ensuring that you receive prompt and accurate viewing feedback.
5) OFFERS AND NEGOTIATION
With each offer received, I will negotiate the highest price and assess the buyers’ financial position in terms of whether they are cash buyers’ or relying on a mortgage. I will vet prospective buyers’ by asking for proof of deposit, mortgage offer in principal and check that their existing property is sold subject to contract should this be required. As I have been in the industry for over 15 years, I have extensive experience with handling negotiations and I understand that when an offer is made, it isn't a case of just passing the offer onto you and acting as a messenger. After all that is what you're paying an Estate Agent to do, securing the best offer on your property?
6) SALES PROGRESSION
When an offer has been successfully negotiated, I will prepare and send a “memorandum of sale” to all parties (including solicitors) which will trigger the start of the conveyancing process. I will ensure that your sale completes as efficiently as it can by providing regular updates throughout the process, keeping in direct communication with various parties, such as the buyer’s solicitor, their mortgage broker, surveyors, the buyer themselves and of course you and your solicitor. I endeavour to make the time scales between accepting an offer and completing as short as possible with our proactive and tenacious approach.
