2. Selecting an estate agent
When selecting your estate agent, consider their opening hours, when they will be available to conduct viewings, their high street presence and what kind of marketing your property will receive. These points are extremely critical to obtaining the maximum price and exposure for your property.
3. Presenting your property for sale
First impressions count, this makes the presentation of your property critical to a swift and successful sale.
Consider carrying out any DIY jobs you have been meaning to do, try to de-clutter to make rooms appear larger and add a fresh coat of paint where necessary.
Cartermoon will then take photographs, produce floorplans and write a property description, all in just one visit.
4. Marketing your property
To find your perfect buyer you need to give your property maximum exposure across a wide range of media.
When you instruct Carter Moon to sell your property you will automatically benefit from our comprehensive marketing package, which includes: full exposure on our "in house" website, exposure on the Zoopla property portal, full colour property details, wall/window displays, email, SMS alerts and PR.
5. Accompanied viewings
Accompanied viewings mean we can use our expertise to help sell your property.
Viewings are arranged and carried out at times and days to maximise viewing opportunities for your property - in fact 39% of viewings are carried out after work and at weekends.
Our office is open 9.00am - 5.30pm Monday to Friday and 9.00am - 4.00pm Saturdays
6. Receiving an offer
As soon as an offer is received, you will be notified both verbally and in writing, including any special conditions of the offer will also be stated in writing and we will check the buyer's ability to proceed before you decide whether to accept the offer.
7. Instructing an advocate
The successful sale of your property can be reliant on the instruction of an efficient and experienced advocate. It is a good idea to do some research and make a decision as soon as or even before you receive an offer, as this will help to avoid delays.
We can offer recommendations if required.
8. Offer agreed
Once you accept an offer, Carter Moon will do the following:
Ask you to confirm your advocate's details
Write to all parties to confirm the agreed price
Prepare a memorandum of sale
Your advocate will send out a draft contract to the purchaser's advocate who will then carry out preliminary enquiries. At this stage a survey will normally be arranged on your property and you will be able to agree dates for exchange of contracts and a 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 and the deposit paid.
9. Exchange of contracts
Exchange of contracts occurs when the following points 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 queries
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 advocate to your advocate. The completion date is then set by mutual agreement
Completion Completion is when the balance of purchase price (usually 90%) is transferred from the buyer's advocate to your advocate's account.
Your advocate will confirm when completion has taken place and will inform us to release the keys to the new owner.
Your property is now sold!
