Selling your home, for whatever reason, is never normally an easy decision. It’s often due to some sort of life changing circumstance such as having children or needing to follow a career.

Selling your biggest asset often comes with its own full set of worries: Am I making the right choice? Am I getting a fair deal? It’s totally normal, and we’ll be here to reassure you each step of the way.

Choosing your agent

It’s always important to work with an agent who understands you. Understanding you, your worries and what you’re looking to achieve will be the first step in achieving a stress free sale.

There are many options out there, from the cheap online only route through to a fully personalised service. At Protheroe Property, we believe firmly in the latter of the two. Our priority will always be you and making sure you’re happy at each point of the sale.

Getting ready for buyers

Once you have an idea of who you would like to sell your property, it’s time to make sure your house is ready for the market. As we touched on in our Buyers Guide, even something as simple as some bad wallpaper can put a buyer off.

First impressions are very important, so don’t be afraid to give the place a fresh coat of paint! There is a lot you can do to make your home more appealing to a new buyer, don’t be afraid to ask for some advice.

Getting the most from viewings

No one knows your property like you and your enthusiasm is going to be what helps sell the property to a new buyer. We’ll always be on hand to help with some of the finer details of property sales but your confidence will do wonders in bringing a new buyer in.

Negotiating offers

When offers start to come in, we’ll work closely with you to achieve the best price for you. Only when you’re happy with an offer will we proceed with the buyer, ensuring they are qualified to continue. We’ll keep you fully updated with each step of the negotiation and the proceedings that follow as and when they happen.

The Legal requirements

From finding a solicitor, exchanging contracts all the way through to completion, we’ll still be available to help with any questions you may have and we’ll ensure everything is ticking along smoothly. We’ll only be happy once the sale is fully completed, everything is finalised and we have a happy client.
