Selling
  • paragraph

    At Academy Estate Agents, we recognise that when you are selling your home it can be one of the most stressful experiences of your life. We can't promise that it will be completely stress-free, but we can promise that we will help you along every step of the process. Since relaunching in 2015, we have sold over 200 properties. We put this down to hard work and effective advertising of the properties that we have the pleasure of selling. With combined background knowledge totalling over 25 years, we are very up to date with what is an ever-changing local property market.

    At Academy we offer free, no obligation valuations for your home. We are very accommodating and can fit the valuation to your requirements. We are confident that we will be the agent that you can be comfortable around and that you can trust to sell your property. We have knowledge based on what we know about the local area, as well as other houses that we have valued. We also have access to historical listings of properties that we and other agents around the area have sold, which will ensure that we can give you the most honest valuation possible.

    Marketing Your Property

    Depending on your choice, we will either arrange unaccompanied or accompanied viewings, depending on your circumstances. Following this we will chase pro-actively for feedback. If we don't manage to sell your property after a viewing you will at least know why, which helps, as it can be a daunting process wondering what people think of your home. We will aim to achieve the highest possible price for you and we will keep you updated throughout.

  • paragraph

    After Sales Service

    Once we have successfully sold your house, we will take the right steps to ensure that your sale is managed as smoothly as possible. We will speak directly with the buyers, solicitors for each party, other estate agents involved in the sale, surveyors and financial advisors and let you know of any updates that we have, to ensure you are in the loop. We try to give as positive experience as possible for everybody who deals with us, which is why we have an average customer rating of 96% (Source: Facebook Reviews).

Buying
  • paragraph

    For most people, buying a house at one stage is the biggest deal of your life. As a result, it is important that you feel comfortable talking to the agents handling your sale. We are confident that our approachable and friendly manner will make it easy to discuss the particulars of your purchase. We liaise with buyers all of the time and take records of buyers' preferences in residential areas. This can sometimes lead to sales before online marketing, through word of mouth. We attach a strong focus to listening to the client's needs with excellent background knowledge of Widnes, which enables us to give useful information for properties they are looking at. If you ever need any advice or information about mortgage advisors or solicitors or contractors, please don't hesitate to ask. We have an array of contacts at our disposal should you wish or need to use any of them. We are contactable via telephone, e-mail and in our office. We will aim to help you throughout the conveyancing process, up to completion, as we appreciate how stressful it can be.

  • paragraph

    Important Information

    If you don't need to sell your house, please make sure that when you put an offer in, you can showcase a proof of funds, and a mortgage in principle if necessary. This will enable us to market the property as Sold STC. If you need a mortgage, we have a contact list of Independent Mortgage advisors who can help you.

    In order for us to be as helpful, please tell us everything about yourselves. This way anything we do send you via a matching e-mail or telephone call will be of the most accurate quality.

    If you need to sell/rent your property out in order to buy, we would advise getting your property valued and then putting it on the market. The only way you can proceed to buy is by having an offer on your house. If you have seen something you like with us, please don't hesitate to give us a call and get your house valued. This will give you an expectation of what you can realistically buy. Our fees are extremely competitive and we do exactly the same as the agents who charge more.
