So, you are thinking of Selling your home!
The first thing you need to do is decide on a good estate agent who will sell your home. Hopefully, this is why you are reading our web site. The lowest commission is not necessarily the best reason to instruct an agent. The agent to instruct is the one that will achieve the best possible price.
Kent Residential are that rare breed of an independent agent owned by a family and staffed by committed, passionate and trained personnel. Excellent service is the standard you will receive.
Price and Valuation – It is essential to get this right. Overpricing your property will only ensure that it does not sell, while underpricing and achieving an immediate sale- well there is nothing clever about that ! We will give you a price that we believe will achieve you the best possible price for your home.
Asking price – what is best for your property. There are different ways to market your property. A fixed asking price, a price from, a guide price, a price range. It is important to price your home correctly, will advise you.
Sales Process – Photographs are all important as is a floor plan. Long poetic descriptions these days, less so. We market on all the major property portals such as rightmove & zoopla. You need a series of excellent photographs showing off your home at its best. We don’t believe in too much… of the property as there is no point using unreal photographs. This just wastes everyone’s time. We generally advise an open house within two weeks of your home being advertised. Social media has a good part to play as does the sales negotiator, and the telephone!
Viewing & Offers – all viewings are accompanied by a sales specialist and all offers are dealt with professionally and the person(s) making the offer have to provide proof of funds and other matters so as to limit the risk of a sale falling through. Statistically, it is the 3rd offer that agrees the sale.
Solicitors/Conveyancers/Progression – We can arrange mortgage advice and obtain a quotation from a local firm of Solicitors that we recommend. They have an excellent dashboard which keeps you in the picture during the sale. We keep a close eye on any chain to try to reduce any stress during the process of the sale.
Completion. the day comes & you lock up and drive away. Hopefully not before leaving a Google review!
