    ARRANGING YOUR MORTGAGE
    image cannot be displayed
    To avoid possible disappointment at a later stage, we strongly recommend that before you start viewing property you speak to a qualified mortgage advisor. Once you know exactly how much you can afford you can make an informed decision on which areas to search, the style of property, the number of bedrooms and if you can afford a garden or garage/parking.

    Accordingly we recommend that you arrange to see our Mortgage Broker Mark Edwards who has direct access through the Mortgage Advice Bureau to some of the best mortgage offers available, including some exclusive deals not available on the High Street. Once a product is identified Steve can arrange a Mortgage in Principle (MIP). This document could be very valuable to you at a later date, particularly if you find yourself in competition for your dream home and you have a MIP and the other party have not. In any event, most estate agents will take you far more seriously if you can prove to them that you are a genuine buyer and have this certificate.

    GETTING YOUR PROPERTY SOLD
    image cannot be displayed
    In this extremely busy market where activity s are running at near maximum capacity, we highly recommend that you secure a buyer for your own home before searching for a new property. In fact in certain parts of Bristol due to short supply and unsurpassed demand, there are estate agents who will flatly refuse to show you property unless you are a cash buyer or under offer!

    REGISTERING WITH AGENTS/WEBSITES
    image cannot be displayed
    With todays technology finding a new home has never been easier and in many cases your next home is just a click away. In addition to the Besley Hill website we suggest that you register your requirements with the two big players, Rightmove & Zoopla. Like Besley Hill they will send you e-mail alerts of new properties listed in the area your search.

    A quick visit to your local agents is also worthwhile, after all you can't beat the traditional in branch registration where a face can be put to a name and your specific requirements can be discussed in detail.

    To register directly with us means that you will get alerts before the properties go live on all the major websites. Obviously the distinct advantage of this is that you will get your foot in the door before others and potentially you could be one of the first to view.
  • paragraph

    FIND THE RIGHT PROPERTY
    Now that your finances are in place and you have registered with websites & agents, its time to view properties. When you identify a potential property of interest we suggest that rather than email the agent to view you telephone and request a mutually convenient time/date to view..

    When viewing, follow some of our top tips;

    - Drive-by the property. Often this will be a very valuable exercise and may save you wasting your time at a later date
    - Scout the neighbourhood. Drive down one evening and see what the neighbourhood is like.
    - Bring a relative or a friend with you. Its always great to have an extra pair of eyes to spot problems you may have missed
    - Take your time. Its the biggest purchase of your life, so check the lights, water pressure, cupboards, windows, etc . In older properties keep an eye out for potential problems, such as damp or structural movement.
    - Ask questions. Ask the estate agents or the seller questions about the property. If you spot damp patch, ask about its history. Has it been treated? and so on....
    - Be Friendly. Build a relationship with the agent who is probably dealing with dozens of clients, after all you want to be the one the agent calls when he gets a new listing. Often being friendly to the seller/estate agents will be helpful if you offer on the property.
    - Feedback. Please provide the estate agent with feedback when requested, this information is not just valuable for the seller but will also allow your agent to build a picture of your exact requirements. When we repeatedly leave messages requesting feedback from clients who refuse to reply, you are rapidly heading for the achieve bin!
  • paragraph

    GETTING YOUR OFFER ACCEPTED
    Once you have viewed the property and feel that it is the one for you, Its time to make an offer. Contact the negotiator that showed you the property and speak to them about making a suitable offer. Usually they can give you background information about historic offers and what the vendors expectations are.. Don't be afraid to make a lower offer, after all if its too low and rejected, you can always increase. However, do be sensible with what you put forward you don't want to offend the vendor and get off on the wrong foot. 

    If you offer through Besley Hill, you will need to be financially qualified before the offer is submitted to the seller. Make sure you have bank statements, mortgage in principle documents, broker details or chain details ready for us.
  • paragraph

    INSTRUCTING A SOLICITOR
    image cannot be displayed
    Once you have agreed a purchase price you will need to instruct a solicitor or conveyancer to handle the legal paperwork. Choosing the right solicitor is important for the efficient progression of the sale. If you choose a local, experienced solicitor, you are much more likely to experience a smooth trouble free transaction that if you use a large conveyancing firm on-line. In this respect cheapest is definitely NOT best!

    SALES PROGRESSION
    Our experience has taught us that the most stressful time for any sale is in the period leading upto an exchange of contracts. It can be both emotional and frustrating at times when nothing seems to be happening, therefore it is essential to keep good lines of communication open with your agent who will be doing everything possible to progress your sale and keep you informed of developments.

    At Besley Hill, the most usual arrangement is that the negotiator that agreed the sale will take ownership, progressed the sale and be your point of contact during the process. In so doing you will be dealing with just one person who will have the knowledge and experienced required

  • paragraph

    EXCHANGE AND COMPLETION
    When you have agreed upon a date, your solicitor will request that you sign the contract and pay your deposit (usually 10%). At this stage your solicitor will exchange contracts and a completion date will be set. Its now time arrange time off work, removal men, pet/child cover & enlist friends/family to help. Once the money has been transferred on the day of completion the estate agent will have authority to release the key to you. Congratulations, you're now home owners.

    ENERGY PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATE

    You are required to have an up to date Energy Performance Certificate to market your property. This provides the prospective buyers with information regarding the energy performance of your individual property. We work closely with a local expert Inspector who will visit your property to obtain the necessary information required to compile the Report and this will be provided direct to the branch to ensure that there is no delay in marketing your property. The Report will belong to you and will be valid for a ten year period. If you currently hold an EPC for your property it is important to consider whether any changes have been made since the supply of the certificate that may have affected the energy performance of the property (for example, a new central heating boiler or loft insulation).

      A co-operative, helpful & supportive agent.

      Following the sale of my Mother's property in Cam, both my sister and I were very pleased that the sale proceeded so smoothly and I would like to express my personal thanks for everything you did regarding the sale, I could not have wished for a more co-operative, helpful and supportive agent.

      No nonsense, contemporary & well known service

      The reason for my email is to thank Besley Hill Estate Agents and in particular Vivienne, for the excellent, efficient and professional way my house sale was handled. When I started searching for an agency I knew exactly what I wanted - a no nonsense contemporary and well known service. This is exactly what I got and Vivienne's approach to this exercise was in my opinion, exemplary. Of particular note was the way she kept me informed at every juncture of the sale and freely offered me advice and encouragement at all times.
