    Welcome to GIBBS

    If you are looking for a property for sale or to rent, we can help.

    Alternatively if you are considering selling, renting or having your investment property managed we would like to help you with deciding on the agent you choose.

    Choosing the wrong agent can be very costly, time consuming and frustrating.

    Since the Estate Agent industry is unregulated, anybody can open an estate agent, which is not good news for the consumer.

    Rather than tell you how good GIBBS is, we would like to give you some facts about us so you can make your own judgement.

    *GIBBS were recently Shortlisted for the Sunday Times 2013 Best Single Letting Agent out of all our competitors in the 32 London Boroughs

    *Merton Business Awards 2013 Finalist

    *Gibbs are a Licensed ARLA Member -The Association of Residential Letting Agents

    *Member of the Client Money Protection Scheme (CMP)

    *Covered with Professional Indemnity Insurance

    So what does that mean?

    You can have peace of mind in the knowledge that you are dealing with a qualified professional who has chosen to adhere to a strict code of conduct.

    You will be consulting with a qualified and trained agent who can give you professional up-to-date advice and guidance.

    When it comes to marketing your property for sale we use the professional services of Photoplan, a professional media specialist who will provide floor plans and high quality property photography.

    We believe in investing in a range of prestigious advertising including the latest search engine marketing which will drive more traffic to your property than our nationwide competitors can. All GIBBS "For Sale" properties are advertised as "Premier Property Adverts" on Rightmove, which attract 35 % more traffic than the standard Rightmove advert. As standard all our properties will appear in a Full Page Advert in the Local Guardian Newspaper.

    Greg Gibbs Director/ Landlord has over 20 years' experience in the business, he is MARLA qualified. GIBBS is a Family Business that is very proud, and believes in offering a professional and friendly service.

    GIBBS retains 95 % of its landlords. Recently GIBBS was joint agent with another Wimbledon multi- agent on an instruction to sell 11 flats. GIBBS out sold the other agent by selling 8 of the 11 flats for sale.

    THE SALES PROCESS

    Accurate valuation:

    It is very important to ensure your property is marketed at the right price. If it is too high, you will not attract the amount of attention you would hope for. Too low, and you will not achieve of what you deserve.

    Our valuations are provided with supporting evidence of comparable properties both currently on the market and those which have recently sold.

    Touch-ups and Tidying:

    Ensuring your property is well presented is crucial to achieving both the maximum possible interest and price. Being proactive in this area is essential.

    Any unfinished work or touch ups required should be finished before viewings commence, to show the property has been well cared for. By keeping the property tidy and uncluttered will highlight the available space.

    Professional Photography & Floor Plan:

    When you property is ready, we will book a professional company to take the photographs and make a floor plan in the one visit. This will be basis for which we are able to generate the majority of the interest for you, by showcasing all of the best features within the property.

    Extensive Marketing:

    All of our properties are marketed through multiple channels including digital and print media.

    We regularly send out email alerts to our registered database of active buyers as well as current landlords, investors and developers.

    Supervised Viewings:

    Every viewing is carried out at a time predetermined to suit you and your lifestyle. Prospective buyers are always accompanied; it is here we use our expertise to sell your property.

    With extended viewing hours we can accommodate all buyers' schedules, so we never miss an opportunity.

    Collating and submitting offers:

    Once we have received an offer/s from prospective buyer/s we collect as much relevant information as possible to help you make an informed decision.

    We will report to you in writing with a breakdown of the buyer/s the ability to proceed, financial position and any other conditions which may be of use to you.

    Accepting an Offer // Memorandum of Sales // Instruction of Solicitor:

    Once you have accepted an offer GIBBS will prepare a memorandum of sales, write to all parties confirming the agreed price and collect your solicitor's information.

    Your solicitor will send out a contract to the buyer's solicitor who will conduct preliminary enquiries. At this stage, you can negotiate the dates for a survey on your property, exchanging of the contracts and a proposed completion date.

    Continuous contact with solicitors:

    To ensure the sale runs as smoothly as possible, we are regularly in contact with both parties and their respective solicitors.

    We will keep you informed each step of the way and can advise you and negotiate on your behalf through the process.

    There are no legal obligations until the contracts are signed.

    Exchange of contracts:

    The exchange of contracts occurs once the following have taken place; Preliminary enquiries have been conducted, evidence of title provided, lease issues highlighted (where applicable), local search queries, confirmation of fixtures and fittings included in the sale.

    Once the contract has been signed by both parties the deposit (usually 10% of the purchase price) will be paid by the buyer's solicitor to your solicitor. The completion date will then set by mutual agreement.

    Completion:

    Completion is usually one week after exchange. The timing of this is negotiable and must be agreed by both parties at the point of exchange.

     On the date of completion, the keys are handed over once the monies have been received by the respective solicitor.

    The balance of monies (usually 90%) is transferred from the buyer's solicitor to your solicitor's account. Your solicitor will notify you when the money has cleared in your account and will then inform us to release the keys.

Gibbs, Collierswoodbranch details

Gibbs is an Independent Estate Agent specialising in residential sales, property lettings and management, mortgage finance, and new homes in the Wimbledon and Colliers Wood .

There is no doubt that the two most important factors involved in selling or letting one's property are accurate valuation and proper presentation. At Gibbs we will set out to advise you on how best to present your property to the market either before or at any time during the period that it is offered for sale.

More often than not, however, the resistance to purchase is because there are certain factors which prospective purchasers find off-putting or totally unacceptable. These factors can be identified by the independent eye and usually put right or improved for little or no capital expenditure, therefore precipitating a quick sale and achieving more money. We are pleased to offer a free valuation and advice without obligation for both sales and lettings, and we offer very flexible and competitive commission rates . We include quality digital colour particulars taken by an independent professional photographer, 360 panoramic virtual tours, floor plans, local information, property map locator, and extensive internet advertising for a quick sale.
