Once it's on the market

Marketing your property

In order to instruct your agent to market your property, you will need to provide some basic information to get the ball rolling.

Handling viewings

As your property goes on the market, make sure your property is prepared and speak to your agent to agree how and when you are able to do viewings. A full-service agent will normally offer accompanied viewings however some agents will offer the option of you undertaking the viewings yourself.

Negotiating offers

Offers are an exciting part of the process and are normally part of a negotiation and often includes a couple of rounds of offers and counter-offers back before an agreement is made.

Ensuring the sale goes smoothly

At the same time as instructing your agent to market the property, we recommend that you organise a solicitor or conveyancer in advance to do the legal work for you so that they are ready to start as soon as you have accepted an offer.

Exchange of contracts

Once all parties are agreed there will be ‘Exchange of Contracts’ meaning that both parties are legally bound to the sale.

Preparing to move out

The move will take a lot of preparation and one of the advantages of having time between exchange and completion is that you can finalise your moving arrangements now that you have a confirmed moving date.
