      Since our establishment in 1989 Stonhills has a reputation as one of the leading Estate Agencies in Northamptonshire. Choosing the right selling agent for your property is essential and can make the difference between your property being sold quickly at the right price or being sold slowly at a below market value.

      At Stonhills we have decades of local Estate Agency experience and people who are committed to giving you a great customer experience.

      Selling your property starts with our free valuation which is carried out by one of our experienced valuers who will meet you at your property and give you their opinion on your property's value taking into account market trends and specific local demand. When you sell your property through Stonhills we will bring you a service that is both professional and customer focused. Selling your property is a big decision, so you need to know that you have made the right choice.

      At Stonhills you will be dealing with an agent with experience, local knowledge, and a reputation for being recommended time and time again. The Daventry office is situated in a prominent town centre location and offers a completely different experience for both buyers and sellers alike.

    • Marketing
      We are open seven days a week and open until 6pm on week day evenings. We market each property on numerous websites, with high quality photographs and marketing. We accompany prospective buyers to viewing appointments and always give vendors feed back afterwards.

    • Property Brochure
      We believe high quality marketing generates the maximum number of viewings. Our brochures and internet marketing show both external and internal phootographs of the highest standard. People ask why we have the best properties on our books, we don't, we just take the best photos. All our marketing material carries detailed floor plans and we always believe in highlighting the best features.

    • Viewings
      We accompany prospective buyers to viewings, including Sunday's. We take the responsibilty of showing the clients round and finding out what they genuinely think. Honest feedback helps the vendor to overcome objections. Feed back is always given the following day. This gives us the opportunity to discuss frankly the best strategy to getting a house sold.

    • After Sales Updates
      Once we have found a buyer and conducted the normal financial checks, we liase with the solicitors and mortgage providers to ensure the the buyer goes over each hurdle at the right time. We always liase with other estate agents in the chain to ensure that all the related transactions are proceeding smoothly. Regular updates from us reduce the stress of the move.

    • Check out your finances
      Before you go looking for your new home, find how much you can afford, what it will cost and whether it fits into your monthly budget. Take advice from a mortgage lender or an independent mortgage broker who will be able to provide you with illustrations of payments and source the right mortgage for you. We have our own independent mortgage advisor on site, so we can do the groundwork to source you the best deal amongst the thousand s of products on the market. It is best to go viewing houses once you have an "agreement in principle" from a lender.

    • Finding the right home
      Once you know your budget contact estate agents, look at adverts and log onto property websites for the right home. Decide on the criteria, then view as many as you can. Good quality estate agents will accompany you to the viewings and will offer help and advice to find the right property.

    • Know Your Chain
      Before you submit an offer it is best to know your chain, how long it is and how much progress each person involved has made. You are totally dependent on the quality of each member of your chain, if one person experiences a problem, it will have the knock on effect to the other parties involved too. We will always check with other estate agents that the chain is strong before submitting offers.

    • Agreeing the sale
      We will negotiate with the vendors (sellers) on your behalf until we arrive at a price you are both happy with. This may also include fixtures and fittings and making all parties aware of projected time frames. Unsuccessful offers must always be communicated in writing.

    • Instructing a solicitor
      Once your offer has been accepted you will need to instruct a solicitor or licensed conveyancer to act for you. A licensed conveyancer will do the same job as a solicitor but they specialise only in the legal transfer of property or land. We can offer you recommendations of various solicitors or conveyancers from our selected panel. Each firm is recommended on the basis they will offer prompt service, a speedy return of phone calls at a competitive fee.

    • Submitting your mortgage application
      Within a day or so of having your offer accepted, you will need to get your mortgage application under way. This may be done at the estate agents office, at the bank or building society or on line. Either way you will normally need to pay a mortgage valuation fee.This is a basic appraisal of the property that reports the value of the property. This can be upgraded to a Homebuyers Report. This is more comprehensive covering far greater detail. If the survey spots anything of a structural nature it will then recommend a structural report or investigation. Cash buyers will need to arrange the valuation themselves if they require one.The mortgage lender will carry out status enquiries on you. These relate to you credit worthiness, income and other commitments. Once the lender is happy with both you and the property they will issue the formal mortgage offer.The mortgage offer is the written offer of a mortgage on a particular house, not to be confused with an agreement in principle.

    • The legalities
      Whilst your mortgage application is being processed your solicitor will make contact with the vendors solicitor to request a draft contract. Once received, they will approve it and apply for the searches. The standard searches are the local authority and the water and drainage search. These will reveal anything that may in the future affect your enjoyment of the property you are buying.Your solicitor will raise enquires to the vendors solicitor and once your solicitor is happy the property has good title and the right one to buy, you will be asked to sign the contract. Your solicitor will not exchange contracts until they are fully satisfied with the legal title.

    • Exchanging Contracts
      This is the point of no return. Once you have exchanged contracts, you and the seller are legally bound. A deposit is normally paid and penalties will be incurred if the sale does not complete.The completion date, the day you actually move is set in stone at this point.

    • Moving Day
      Also known as completion. This has to be a weekday and not a public holiday. This is the day that your solicitor transfers the full payment to the sellers' solicitors. Once successfully received, the keys can be released to you.
