WHY PROFESSIONAL PROPERTIES?
  • paragraph

    Who we are..

    Professional Properties have been operating within the Derby and Burton on Trent area since 1999 and have enjoyed sustained growth in our lettings business. This growth is due to our service standard which ultimately is determined by our customers.

    We have used our considerable knowledge and experience within the Derby and Burton lettings market and extending it into residential sales. Our experienced staff always listen carefully to your requirements so that we can deliver an excellent service to satisfy every customers needs.

    Our local property experts have extensive knowledge of their area and use this to give you an honest appraisal based on a variety of aspects, such as market demand and supply. We deal with properties that our existing landlords wish to sell, whether to another investor, or on the home buyer market as well as properties instructed to us by current homeowners wishing to move on.

    Our Investment Sales service enables the sale of a property from one landlord to another whilst keeping the existing tenant in situ, therefore incurring no void periods. Professional Properties will arrange the completion of all relevant tenancy documents included in the sale fee.

    Selling your property can seem very daunting, and many people only go through this process a few times throughout their lives so it is often difficult to know where to start. At Professional Properties, we hope to make the sale process as stress-free as possible. Our aim is to achieve the best possible price for your property in the current market, with realistic timescales attached to this goal. Our local property experts have an unrivalled knowledge of property values in the area which enables us to provide an accurate valuation which will lead to a quick and efficient sale.

    Our team are always ready to answer any questions that you may have so please do not hesitate to contact us.

    Local Property Experts

    Only an expert can give an accurate market value of your property. If the advertised sale price is too low, then you will not achieve a sales value that you potentially should have done. If it is too high, you risk putting off potential buyers and you may have the property on the market for some considerable time.

    Our valuers are experts within their local markets and very experienced within their field. Not only will they give an accurate market valuation, they will advise on how best to present your property for sale as well as discuss the local market and the current demand for your property.

    Our consultation is, of course, FREE and vendors are under no obligation to use our services.

    Preparation is key..

    Would you sell a car without giving it a quick wash and brush up? No, so why do it when trying to sell your home?

    Getting the buyer to connect with your home, to imagine how it will suit their family and lifestyle, is not just luck! It's about creating the right environment so they can't resist it.

    It's extremely important that each room appears as it is intended to be used. Imagine the mindset of a potential buyer of a three bedroom house seeing two bedrooms plus a storage room!

    Our property experts at Professional Properties will discuss these important steps with you plus lots of other information on making your property appeal to your target audience.

    Get One Step Ahead..

    A great piece of advice if you need a mortgage for your property is to get an 'agreement in principle' from a lender before you start property hunting. This will give you an idea as to how much you can borrow.  The bigger your deposit, the better the interest rate! 

    Vendors will take you more seriously. Property chains are breaking far too frequently when a buyer has to pull out of a transaction because they can't get the necessary finance and many vendors have lost time and money when their sale has fallen through.

    Apart from your monthly mortgage payments, there are other costs associated with buying a home. These include:

    • Mortgage arrangement and valuation fees
    • Stamp Duty
    • Solicitor's fee
    • Survey cost
    • Removal costs
    • Initial furnishing and decorating costs
    • Buildings insurance

    Mortgage Advice

    We can offer Mortgage Advice through our financial guru, Suzanne.
    A decision in principle usually involves a credit check by the lender to establish whether you are a good credit risk. Once you make a formal application, more detailed checks are run and information collated. Use an independent mortgage broker to get your decision in principle before you start looking for a property and they will help you find the right deal for your circumstances.

    Corin is our wills expert!  If you are buying a property with a partner, after you have decided what percentages of the new property you will each own, it is very important to make sure you have a valid and up to date will in place. In England, if you die without a will and you are single without children then your money goes to your parents. If your parents are deceased it goes to your siblings, then your grandparents, and so on through your family. Having a will ensures your money goes where you want it to!
