    The 4 Steps to Getting Your Property to the Market
    If you're wondering where to start with the process of selling your home or investment property, this quick guide will help.
  • paragraph

    Step 1 - Get a Free Valuation
    Before you can make a decision about selling your property, you need to know what you would be likely to sell it for on the open market.

    • A solicitor/estate agent like us can provide this property valuation for you.
    • We look at comparable sales of properties in your area, use our expertise of the local market and demand levels and provide you with an accurate estimate of what we would expect your property to sell for.
    • Your valuation is completely free of charge and provided with no obligation.
  • paragraph

    Step 2 - Appoint an Estate Agent
    Once you have had your valuation, you will need to appoint an estate agent or solicitor estate agent to market your property for sale. You should find out how much it's going to cost first though! A quote from a solicitor/estate agent should contain a breakdown of:

    • The estate agency fee;
    • The legal/conveyancing fee;
    • The cost of marketing and advertising materials for the property;
    • Governmental and other third party charges relating to the legal/conveyancing work;
    • VAT.

    The fees for selling your home can vary dramatically depending on the estate agent. For full details of what MOV8 charges, please just request a no-obligation selling quote.
  • paragraph

    Step 3 - Get a Home Report
    Since 2008, all residential properties marketed for sale in Scotland must have a Home Report before coming onto the market. There are three elements to the Home Report.

    • The Property Questionnaire is completed by the property owner and contains useful information for the potential buyer as well as information that is helpful to the conveyancing process.
    • The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rates the energy efficiency of the property.
    • The Survey covers the structural elements of the property and rates various elements of the physical make-up of the property on a scale from 1 to 3, with 1 being the best and 3 being the worst. It also provides a surveyor's valuation of the property and a reinstatement value, plus issues that might be of interest to the purchaser's solicitor.

    Your solicitor/estate agent will generally sort the Home Report out for you.
  • paragraph

    Step 4 - Photos and Marketing Materials Produced
    The final stage of getting your property onto the market is for the estate agent to send a photographer to take photographs of your property and to gather details about the property that will be used for the adverts that appear on the agent's website, in any marketing materials like property brochures and on the portals, like Rightmove, that your property is advertised on.

    Once you have approved your photos and marketing materials and signed-off your Home Report, your estate agent will usually arrange for a For Sale Board to go up and for all of your adverts to go 'live'. At that point, your property is on the market and viewings can begin.

    Here's What Our Clients Say About Us
    • Introduction

      Don't just take our word for it!
      It's easy for us to say that we are great. So here are some testimonials from various clients, taken from independent sources such as review sites.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      They could not have been any better.
      We've just concluded the sale of 2 properties and the purchase of another all through MOV8.
      They have been superb... we were originally unsure about using them given their new approach to estate agency (more conventional solicitors tried to warn us against using them!) - but they could not have been better. By focusing on the important things, MOV8 have developed an excellent end-to-end advice and service proposition with great attention to detail and competent and friendly staff.
      No hesitation in recommending Mov8.
    • Seller Testimonial

      I will definitely be recommending MOV8 to friends.
      I will definitely be recommending MOV8 to friends. The cost of marketing our house has been considerably lower than it would have been with other property agents and yet the quality of service has been excellent.
      Preparation for sale was quick, efficient and professional and we were very pleased with the quality of brochures and photographs.
      Staff were at all times friendly, efficient, and remarkably quick to act. We received good advice throughout and are very pleased we chose to go with MOV8.
      I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them.
    • Seller Testimonial

      I would be very happy to recommend MOV8 to friends
      I am happy with the service provided and with whole process. Everything was very clear from the start and therefore easy. Jenna was really friendly and always there for me on the phone or email. I would be very happy to recommend MOV8 to friends.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Every aspect of the transaction was first class
      From the initial telephone call, to the valuation and communication throughout, every aspect of the transaction was first class. Dealing with people who put you at ease and explained things in English made the whole experience less stressful than expected. The price on paper was the price paid and so reasonable in the marketplace.
    • Seller Testimonial

      All the staff where great
      I assisted my sister in selling her property and found the company personnel very helpful, honest but most of all professional. All the staff where great and a special mention for Lauren Drysburgh who shown interest and took time to answer questions.The process of selling the property was made easier due to the staff.
    • Seller Testimonial

      I would definitely recommend them.
      The staff allocated to our house sale were extremely professional and were really pleasant to deal with. They always got back to me with queries and answered my questions. It made the whole process much easier. I would definitely recommend them.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Excellent service from a 21st Century firm!
      I have received First Class service from all staff at Mov8. From the valuation of my property straight through to the sale of my property, everyone was always very helpful and willing to answer any questions I had. I never felt a burden and all staff went over and above to help. Especially Lauren who dealt with the sale and Sarah who got the ball rolling. I would definitely use Mov8 in the future and recommend everyone to do so, excellent service from a 21st Century firm!

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      I would be happy to work with MOV8 again.
      I chose MOV8 to negotiate the purchase of a property on my behalf. It has been a pleasure working with them in every step of the way. I found both the quality of the advice and their responsiveness to be at a very high standard. I would be more than happy to work with MOV8 again in the future.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Very helpful in guiding me through the process.
      After falling in love with Edinburgh over the past few years I decided to make the move up from London 2 months ago. After subscribing to the espc website I have viewed several properties managed by mov8, and have just had an offer accepted on a great flat in central Edinburgh. Mov8 staff, and the Operations Manager, Andrew Guild, in particular, have been outstanding: courteous, knowledgeable, and always helpful: going the extra mile in informing me with timely updates in the status of flats I have been interested in. Also, being unfamiliar with the Scottish conveyancing rules, they have been very helpful in guiding me through the process. I would happily recommend MOV8 to all flat and house buyers in Edinburgh. Great job.
