We are your first step to selling your property quickly and painlessly, we have strong relationships within the local community as we are local residents too and have a vast knowledge of the area and the benefits of buying a home in Thornton Cleveleys. Communication is vital! Our customers are of great importance to us and we aim to meet your needs with regular feedback and to keep you fully informed at every stage.
Spring (February/March) and Autumn (September) are the key times to sell your property when traditionally demand outstrips supply and therefore prices are usually at their most buoyant. Everyone knows that first impressions count, and you'll want the house to appeal to as many people as possible; the more people there are who like the property, the higher the selling price should be.
If you will want someone you can relate to personally; someone who is very active in the local market; someone who is keen to sell your property and has fair agreement then look no further than our skilled team whose approach differentiates us from our competitors. We personalise marketing to our individual customers, know who will buy your property and see all offers through to completion, keeping you fully informed at every stage. Many agents will also often try to tie sellers into a 12-week exclusive contract, we do not, if you are not happy with our service, you can change or go multi-agency.
Sales for 2014 are predicted to carry on improving and you will need an agent who acts in your best interest. A buyer who offers the highest price is not always the best choice. We will advise you on buyers' circumstances, firstly on how they are financing the purchase. If they are raising a mortgage we will ask to see a mortgage 'in principle' letter from their lender. If they are first-time buyers assist them in the transaction as to not protract the conveyancing. We will find out about any forward chains that could complicate agreeing completion dates further down the line ensuring all related sales are under offer before you accept any offers placed on your property. Additional purchasers and buyers returning to the market is good news - as long as their finances are in place.
This is where the hard work starts, and the longer it takes to reach exchange of contracts, the higher the chances of the deal falling through. We keep in weekly contact with your solicitor, seller and buyer to ensure that channels of communication stay open. Giving you peace of mind of knowing where the conveyancing is at, and how your buyer and seller is feeling about the progress of the transaction.
