    • As soon as you consider selling your home, you will require an accurate current market value. At Balgores, appraisals are carried out by a senior member of staff to assess the current value of your property and discuss a marketing plan that works for your individual needs and time scales.

      We will provide extensive research/comparables from leading property databases - including land registry - allowing us to provide an accurate price. In addition, we will give you a detailed breakdown of moving costs.

      Presentation of your home at Balgores is paramount. Firstly, we will produce high quality full colour sales particulars, including professional photography, together with a 360 degree virtual tour, if required and floor plans.

      Your property will be matched to suitable buyers who will be contacted immediately by telephone. Our pro-active sales consultants will be eager to encourage viewings of your property at your earliest convenience. In addition, your property details will be emailed, SMS texted and mailed.

      Your property will be displayed from our prominent, centrally located offices via our digital display system and window display.

      It will also feature on Balgoresproperty.com, a fully interactive website, as well as the Country's leading property website including primelocation.com, findaproperty.com, propertylive.co.uk, Zoopla and rightmove.co.uk.

      We consistently advertise in full colour in the regions' leading property publications, coupled with carefully selected, out of area publications nationally and into London, together with our monthly magazine.

      We endeavour to accompany all viewings, where possible, taking away the inconvenience to you as the client and to provide us with accurate and immediate feedback regarding your property.

      There is nothing more frustrating than silence. Following a viewing, our aim is to contact you within 24 hours with honest and constructive feedback from prospective buyers.

      We will advise you even if we are unsuccessful in making contact with the viewers within this time. We will also endeavour to give you positive advice, resulting from the feedback of potential purchasers, which could give you the vital information necessary to make the changes and produce dramatic, positive results. In addition, we will furnish you with regular marketing reports.

      When you choose Balgores to sell your property we will always keep you informed and even have a regular catch up with you in the comfort of your own home.

      When negotiating your sale, our aim is to achieve the best possible sale price for your property. Once our experienced sales consultants have received an offer, we will fully investigate your buyers ability to proceed by confirming their financial status and, where applicable, communicating throughout the chain.

      Once a sale has been agreed we will be pro-active in the progression of the transaction, keeping you informed on a regular basis.

      We would even be delighted to liaise with the estate agents to negotiate your onward purchase, where required, using our experience to secure your next home for the best price.

    • Seller Testimonial

      Balgores does what is written on the tin!

      As you all know I do estate agency recruitment for a living and could have given instructions to sell my house to a number of my existing clients.  I have always liked the business model of Balgores Property Group and the way you market your properties, your impressive advertising and what is arguably one of the best websites I have seen.  You sold my property within a matter of days and I now have an agreed purchase through you as well.  I cannot stress enough how impressed I am with both Romford and Hornchurch offices.  The service, follow-up and attention to detail has been impreccable and quite outstanding.

      I would also like to add a special thanks to Matthew.  You have taken telephone calls from me on your days off, you have been exceptional.  Balgores Property Group has done exactly what is written on the tin.  First class customer service and exemplary management.

      Martin, you should be proud!

      Steve King
      Managing Director
