    Thinking Of Selling?

    Goddard & Co can offer a free, realistic and honest pre-market appraisal based on our knowledge of the market, area and our selling success.

    Our overall aim is to work alongside our clients to assist them in achieving a sale to the right buyer and at the best possible price. You need a team of experienced negotiators who are committed to providing you with the highest level of customer service.

    Marketing Your Property

    We recognise that your property needs maximum exposure and we use a variety of marketing tools to sell your home.

    Online Media - Your property will be advertised on Rightmove, the UK's largest property portal. Alongside this we will advertise the property on our own user friendly and informative website.

    Social Media - We will display your property on our regularly updated Facebook and Twitter pages.

    Full Colour Brochures - Many buyers will decide to view a property based on the photographs and first impression of a property they see advertised. This is why we believe it is vital to display your property with a great deal of vivid and attractive photographs, supported with appealing descriptions.

    Window Display - With our prominent town centre office and large window space, we are able to showcase you property with A4 and A3 LED property details.

    Local Press - We often advertise within the local newspapers. Albeit we do find that the vast majority of enquiries come via the internet, but for those who look forward to the Property Sections on a Thursday we are often present with a full colour page advert.

    For Sale Boards - We are great believers that having a For Sale board present at a property can make a difference. You never know, a neighbour may know someone or have family looking to move to the area, the milkman or postman may be looking to move. With our newly designed 'hangman' style boards, this is another option for our clients to choose.

    Property Alerts - With our up-to-date Estate Agency system we are able to email property details out to the many hundreds of buyers registered with us. It is often the case that we receive enquiries from our property alerts even before the property is listed on Rightmove.

    EPC's & Floor-plans - You would require an Energy Performance Certificate when selling, these last for ten years and can be re-used if you purchased the property within this time. We often find that especially with larger or deceptive properties that Floor-Plans can be a helpful tool to display the accommodation on offer. We can arrange both of these for you upon request.

    Sales Progression

    This can often be the most stressful part of the process. Upon agreeing a sale we will recommend local solicitors that we know and trust. With regular calls to solicitors and agents we can provide you with updates on the progress of the sale and chain involved (if applicable).

    We aim to assist in achieving a swift and as stress free sales process from start through to exchange of contracts and completion.

Expert advice on buying a home...
  • paragraph


    Firstly contact our office on 01473 216412 to speak to a member of our Team. At this point we will try and find out more about you, so it's a good idea to consider some of the following...

    • Which Areas are you considering buying in?
    • What style of property are you looking for?
    • How much are you prepared to spend for your 'ideal home'?
    • Do you have a timescale you would like to meet?
    • Do you have a property to sell? If so have you put the property on the market yet?
    • What is your position? Have you a Mortgage Agreed in Principle?

    Once we have ascertained what you are looking for and a bit more detail about yourself we will add you to our Mailing List where we will be able to narrow down the search to meet your criteria. The property details can be emailed out to you immediately.

  • paragraph


    Once you have received details of a property that meets your criteria, contact us to arrange an appointment.

    Don't delay on viewing a property of interest as the likelihood is that if you like it someone else will too!

    Try to give detailed and constructive feedback following viewings. This will help us know exactly what you need and save valuable time during your search.

  • paragraph


    Once you have found your 'Dream Home' contact us to make an offer. It is important to remember that at this stage an offer is not just about the money. We will ask you to provide details of...

    • Your buying position and if you are selling a property which agent is handling your own sale?
    • Your proposed timescale.
    • Any terms that form part of your offer.
    • How you propose to fund the purchase.
    • If you are arranging a mortgage then evidence that you have the required funds agreed in principle with a lender.

    Our Vendors will expect us to obtain the above information as it all assists them in the decision making process.

  • paragraph


    Once a price has been agreed we will be the main point of communication between various parties involved in the transaction and we will aim to assist wherever possible. You will need to...

    • Instruct an established local solicitor with knowledge and experience of your chosen location. We may be able to assist you in putting you in contact with a recommended firm.
    • Instruct and pay your Independent Financial Adviser or Mortgage Broker to organise the survey.

    Once the legal process has been completed and your finances are in place you will be in a position to 'Exchange Contracts' and agree a 'Completion Date' at which point you are able to take possession of you new home.
