    Guide to selling your property

    If you are considering selling your property read our selling guide to get to grips with the process. Please contact us with any questions and to book a free valuation .


    Research the best agent for your area

    Read reviews at Google (http://bit.ly/1UIHK8H) and visit estate agent websites and offices for examples of how they will market your property.

    Book valuations

    When booking valuations with your chosen agents take note of how they deal with you; are they quick to answer the phone, are they professional, do they answer your questions well? How they deal with you indicates how they will deal with a purchaser.

    Ensure agents are doing their homework!

    When booking valuations inform agents of lease length, size and any additional benefits like parking /outdoor space. The agent will determine an approximate market value from their experience and specialist materials.

    Valuation

    No two properties are the same, so informal inspections allow an agent to finalise market price. They can recommend small improvements that will help to sell the property.

    Agreeing terms of instruction

    It might be tempting, but don't choose an agent purely on price. Instructing one agent is cheaper than multiple agents, and using multiple agents can imply desperation to buyers.

    Viewings

    First viewings are most successful when the vendor is not around, as buyers are relaxed so they spend more time looking around the property. It can be advantageous for the owner to be present at a second viewing to answer direct questions, like what the neighbours are like.

    Offers

    Your agent will negotiate offers on your behalf, and in the case of multiple offers, you will work together to achieve the best possible price with the agent advising on a buyer's position. At Paramount once an offer is agreed, a lock-out agreement is produced which assures the seller that they have a committed purchaser.

    Legal work

    Solicitors must be instructed once an offer is accepted. If you have signed up to our free legal fees offer we will do this on your behalf, or we can recommend other local firms.

    Moving day

    We will liaise with all parties to assist you with arranging dates and the moving process.

    Guide to buying a property

    Buying a property is an exciting process and at Paramount we can ensure a simple journey to finding a new home. In our buying a property guide we share our home buying tips to assist you on this journey.

    If you have any questions about buying a property please contact us.

    Choosing an area

    If you are thinking about moving to a new area it is worth doing some research on and offline. Visit the area at different times of the day and walk around to explore the local amenities. View our area guides for information about schools, transport links and local businesses across North West London.

    Affordability

    Speak to a mortgage adviser to establish how much money you can borrow when buying a property. It's worth considering that interest rates are likely to rise - ensure you can continue paying the mortgage if they do.

    Remember that there are multiple costs involved when buying a property, including a deposit, stamp duty land tax and conveyancing fees. There are numerous ongoing costs involved with owning your own property too. Ensure you are able to cover mortgage repayments as well as council tax, energy bills and any annual service charges.

    Finding a property

    Before you start looking establish your property requirements. Consider the number of bedrooms, outdoor space and parking that you will require. When viewing properties take notes so you can compare with other properties that you have seen. Have a walk around the area to check out the local amenities, consider a trial run using public transport if you commute to work and try to visit the property at different times of the day.

    Making an offer

    When you have found a property to buy you need to make an offer. Paramount will then put your offer forward to the seller. Once a final price has been accepted you submit your mortgage application and arrange a valuation of the property with the lender.

    At Paramount we advise both buyer and seller to sign a lock-out agreement to prevent gazumping and gazundering. This helps ensure the offer progresses to completion. Please speak to a member of our sales team for further information.

    Surveys

    There are three types of survey: valuation report, homebuyer survey and structural survey. The valuation report is the cheapest and is required by a mortgage lender. It will show up any major problems but it won't give you a full report.

    The homebuyer survey is a more detailed report and highlights issues that might affect the value of the property, damp in the walls and any other urgent problems. This is a sufficient survey for most properties but for those in need of renovation, a full structural survey is recommended. A full structural survey is the most thorough survey and worth paying for if the property is listed or old.

    Moving day

    Prepare for moving day by creating a checklist of jobs that need to be completed before and on the day, including:

    • Book a removal firm
    • Redirect post
    • Inform key people and companies of your move date and new address
    • Read the meters and inform utility companies

Paramount Collective

    Community work
    image cannot be displayed
    At Paramount we pride ourselves on being independent and individual. This ethos underlies everything we do, from the processes we follow to the organisations we support.

    We purposefully do not choose a charity of the year, instead favouring to help and support as many
    different initiatives as possible. However, there are three charities that we continually pledge our support to: Agents Giving, Brent Food Bank and Ashford Place.

    We are proud to have been named Agents Giving Fundraising Champions between 2013-2015 and Agents Giving Best Team 2017.


    Brent Food Bank is our local food bank. We don't think it is right that there are people living in our community without enough food so we do everything we can to help Brent Food Bank collect essential goods.

    Ashford Place is a charity providing help, food and services to homeless people, and each Christmas
    season, members of the Paramount team volunteer by cooking meals or helping out at the centre
    in Cricklewood.

    To support charities responsibly, ethically and productively, we focus on helping them in five ways
    by: giving our time; providing our office space; donating money, fundraising and offering our skills.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      ...intelligently proactive in their search'

      My husband and I have been very impressed with Paramount Properties: we have found Robert's team to be intelligently proactive in their search for the right buyer for our home; consistently motivated; knowledgeable about the market and at a personal communication level both helpful and accessible. We feel we have been provided with a very high standard of service. I strongly recommend them to anyone thinking of selling their home in the area.

      Ashleigh Mackenzie - Jan 2018
    • Seller Testimonial

      personable, reliable, professional and supportive
      Lionel helped me to purchase and, 2 years later, sell a one bedroom property in West Hampstead. He has always been personable, reliable, professional and supportive throughout the process and I thank him for all of his help.

      Sarah Al-Jilaihawi - Dec 2017
    • Seller Testimonial

      always honest and never overwhelmed me with calls
      I sold my property through Paramount in August 2016. Viewings started on the first day it went on the market. and I accepted an offer within two weeks. I'm certain this is because it was marketed at the right price and to the right market. Paramount provided an outstanding service to me, and as my neighbour bought his property through them, I know they do the same for buyers. They understand their clients amazingly well, and directed the right buyers to view my property. Lionel acted as my agent and was fantastic at providing feedback, informing me as soon as he'd booked viewings, and providing sound advice. I also got to know other members of the team during my sale, who were also always friendly, polite and also gave timely feedback. I can't rate Paramount highly enough and highly recommend them to both buyers and sellers. They made my sale smooth and easy, and ensured everything was on track once I'd accepted the offer. Perhaps the most notable point is that they were always honest and never overwhelmed me with constant calls once they'd valued my property, which every other agent I've dealt with has done. And while other agents I've dealt with tend to boast about their services and ability to sell properties, but so often fail to deliver (which was my experience prior to appointing Paramount), Paramount takes a levelled approach and achieved a fast and smooth sale for me in miminal time. Thanks very much to Lionel and the whole team! Nina Robertson

      wouldn't hesitate to recommend!
      Dealt with Oliver Gorman to sell our flat. Paramount offered a great service and Oliver was always in regular contact throughout. We've now bought and sold with Paramount and wouldn't hesitate to recommend! Many thanks. Tom C
    • Seller Testimonial

      I could not have found a better estate agent!
      Sold my flat with Paramount. Went on offer twice, both times within 48 hours. They took amazing pictures and were very proactive looking for buyers and chasing the sale through. I dealt mainly with Lionel and he was absolutely amazing. Extremely patient and always providing excellent advice. I could not have found a better estate agent, they do deserve their fees! These guys are all top notch! Thank you very much. A very happy customer. J Piqueiras
    • Seller Testimonial

      Tony Mixides is a very enthusiastic agent
      Tony Mixides is a very enthusiastic agent and his interest in our property was impressive. He clearly enjoys his work and is very good at it. When accompanying prospective buyers he furnished them with the correct information about the house which he clearly had at his fingertips. As I work from home I could overhear the conversations he had with them and he had evidently done his homework about our house. A most impressive young man! Robert was also a big help getting the transaction through!

    • Seller Testimonial

      unfailingly available on both phone and email
      We were pleased with the service we received from Paramount. Our flat was well marketed and a sensible sales strategy was adopted - the agents were realistic about price in a difficult market. Oliver Gorman, in particular, did a great job managing what was, at times, a tricky chain (including some very unresponsive solicitors) and was unfailingly available on both phone and email.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      an absolutely amazing experience with Ollie Gorman
      We just completed on our Willesden Green flat on Friday having had an absolutely amazing experience with Ollie Gorman from Paramount Properties. Ollie was the first agent we met and was so friendly and professional from the start. We saw what felt like hundreds of properties, and he was so patient, helpful, knowledgeable and supportive from start to finish. I'm sure it was partly luck but having heard from so many people how stressful a property purchase is we really did not find that at all! Nothing was too much trouble and he got back to us within minutes every time we needed something. We had a fairly ambitious timeline to try and stick to which we were a little nervous about making, but Ollie really pushed from every direction to ensure it happened, and succeeded with a couple of days to spare! We could not be happier with the service provided and cannot speak highly enough of Ollie, who just made the entire process (almost) totally stress-free. It was a pleasure to deal with Paramount and cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you! Jessica Colson
    • Buyer Testimonial

      the whole process was incredibly seamless
      We worked with Lionel Stoll for the purchase of a two bedroom flat in NW6 and the whole process was incredibly seamless. While there are always back and forths, the whole process from offer to completion took under 8 weeks. Lionel is tenacious and always on hand to suggest solutions to potential potholes. As first time buyers I was very nervous, but he always sought to reassure me and make sure everything was progressing as quickly and efficiently as possible. He also supported us with information as his knowledge of the area-due to his extremely long tenure at Paramount-is peerless. I would definitely recommend the firm to anyone looking to purchase in the area. Katherine Ormerod
    • Buyer Testimonial

      He was always on the ball and quick with feedback
      Just closed a first-time house buyer transaction with Tony Mixides. From start to finish we felt extremely comfortable with Tony, not necessarily something we could say about most other agents. He was always on the ball and quick with feedback, and was a big help in agreeing the transaction. Also worth mentioning his valued support and 'hand-holding' during the legal process until closing. A very satisfactory experience overall - thank you Tony!

      Roopa Malde - Dec 2017
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Without doubt the best I've ever come across
      Without a doubt the best estate agency I've ever come across. From start to finish Lionel was brilliant; professional and trustworthy. Buying a place in London is daunting, especially if you aren't from here, but he made the process so simple. If you want an estate agent that gives estate agents a good name, go to these guys.

      Danielle Meyers - Jan 2018
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Recommend these agents to anyone looking 
      Great service, our agent Oliver Gorman, provided excellent service and was always available to answer any questions. Without him our purchase would not have been as smooth as it was, especially given this was our first buy. Recommend these agents to anyone looking in the areas they cover.
