    The Journey

    As soon as you consider selling your home, you will require an accurate current market value. At Balgores, appraisals are carried out by a senior member of staff to assess the current value of your property and discuss a marketing plan that works for your individual needs and time scales.

    We will provide extensive research/comparables from leading property databases - including land registry - allowing us to provide an accurate price. In addition, we will give you a detailed breakdown of moving costs.

    Presentation of your home at Balgores is paramount. Firstly, we will produce high quality full colour sales particulars, including professional photography, together with a 360 degree virtual tour, if required and floor plans.

    Your property will be matched to suitable buyers who will be contacted immediately by telephone. Our pro-active sales consultants will be eager to encourage viewings of your property at your earliest convenience. In addition, your property details will be emailed, SMS texted and mailed.

    Your property will be displayed from our prominent, centrally located offices via our digital display system and window display.

    It will also feature on Balgorespropertygroup.com, a fully interactive website, as well as the Country's leading property website including Rightmove, Zoopla & OnTheMarket.

    We consistently advertise in full colour in the regions' leading property publications, coupled with carefully selected, out of area publications nationally and into London, together with our monthly magazine.

    We endeavour to accompany all viewings, where possible, taking away the inconvenience to you as the client and to provide us with accurate and immediate feedback regarding your property.

    There is nothing more frustrating than silence. Following a viewing, our aim is to contact you within 24 hours with honest and constructive feedback from prospective buyers.

    We will advise you even if we are unsuccessful in making contact with the viewers within this time. We will also endeavour to give you positive advice, resulting from the feedback of potential purchasers, which could give you the vital information necessary to make the changes and produce dramatic, positive results. In addition, we will furnish you with regular marketing reports.

    When you choose Balgores to sell your property we will always keep you informed and even have a regular catch up with you in the comfort of your own home.

    When negotiating your sale, our aim is to achieve the best possible sale price for your property. Once our experienced sales consultants have received an offer, we will fully investigate your buyers ability to proceed by confirming their financial status and, where applicable, communicating throughout the chain.

    Once a sale has been agreed we will be pro-active in the progression of the transaction, keeping you informed on a regular basis.

    We would even be delighted to liaise with the estate agents to negotiate your onward purchase, where required, using our experience to secure your next home for the best price.

      Mike, I am most grateful for the care and attention you and Balgores Low have given to the sale of this property. In particular the professionalism throughout and the way you have conducted the business. I am sure that without your intervention the chain would have collapsed and we would have been looking at an extended period of uncertainty. Needless to day I would no hesitate to use you again or recommend your services to others.

      BIG thank you to Sarah

      Hi Mike, I thought that I would send you a quick email to say thank you to you and your team for selling our property so swiftly and also a BIG thank you to Sarah for helping me/us so much throughout the whole sale process to date!  I found her to be extremely professional, but at the same time very warm and understanding of the frustrations that can be faced whilst the sale is progressing, she was very diligent and able to ascertain information from all parties concerned and to pass on that information too!  Sarah really did put in a lot of hard work to push the sale process through and she managed to keep me sane and updated throughout it all, because of this I would recommend yourselves to family and friends and as I said yesterday, please keep us posted if you find any houses for us to buy in the area in our criteria.

      Many thanks once again to you and your team for all your hard work.

      Muna & Philip
