Why Choose BanhamDark
  • paragraph

    We know exactly what it's like to go through the emotional rollercoaster of selling and moving home.

    We never underestimate what a big journey that is, which is why our experienced and award-winning team have honed their skills to ensure they provide you with a proactive sensitive service every step of the way.

    We've been in this business long enough to craft the ideal route for our 'sellers', so here's our tried-and-tested 'charter' for what to expect when you sell your home with us:

    One of our experienced team will visit your property to offer advice on the sales process from providing an accurate and realistic valuation to discussing the various ways we will market your home.

    Our valuations are always based on comparable sales information and we will provide evidence of this, together with an honest assessment of your particular property.

    We will prepare draft details and photographs which you are asked to approve or amend as necessary. Identity checks will be done and an EPC and floor plan are also arranged.

    Once these details are all taken care of we can start to market your property, by uploading the details to the main property websites, (Rightmove, Zoopla & Prime Location). We then contact any prospective buyers from our extensive mailing list in order to achieve some initial viewings.

    We aim to accompany ALL viewings within working hours and make every effort to provide you with honest and constructive feedback from viewers within 24 hours of the appointment.

    Once we have received an offer for your property our expert negotiators will check the prospective buyer's position and discuss the offer with you. Our aim is always to get you the best price possible.

    BUT WE DON'T STOP THERE! Unlike many agents, our work continues after we have secured your buyer. We keep you fully updated as the sale progresses by liaising with yourself, solicitors and other interested parties. 

    We are here for you, right up to exchange of contracts and completion.

    If you want to know more about our process or our people - just call!

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      We can't thank them enough!
      Banham Dark were an invaluable part of our house move. From identifying that our dream house was for sale on the Saturday, Karen had our current house on the market by Monday evening, with viewings booked and an offer by Wednesday. The whole process took 11 weeks and was very smooth, with the whole team assisting in regular updates when needed. We are now in our dream home and Banham Dark were absolutely pivotal in making that happen. We can't thank them enough! Helen & Luke Rudd
    • Seller Testimonial

      determination & professionalism never wavered
      Thank-you so much for all your excellent efforts over the last few months in selling our flat. We recognise how hard you worked for us and your determination and professionalism never wavered; it really is much appreciated.  We'll certainly recommend BanhamDark to others if we have the opportunity.
      Mr & Mrs Rogerson

      energy and passion
      Being a Suffolk company ourselves we felt that it was really important to appoint a local agent who knows the area and people of Felixstowe well. As soon as we met Karen and her team, we knew that they had the energy and passion to take on board this special project and very much look forward to working with them over the coming months.

      honesty, service and commitment.
      I've now used BanhamDark a few times to buy or sell a home and each time have been impressed at their honesty, service and commitment. Highly recommend.
      Mrs Ruffles
    • Seller Testimonial

      in competent hands
      I am so glad that I can leave all my rental properties in the competent hands of BanhamDark who for several years have found suitable investment properties for me and continued to manage them most efficiently, leaving me free to concentrate on other interests.
      Mr Melton
    • Seller Testimonial

      They always go above and beyond!
      BanhamDark are a great group of people, they are all helpful and polite. Nothing is too much trouble and when we had a problem at exchange they went out of their way to help. They always go above and beyond. We would certainly recommend them.

      Mr B 
    • Seller Testimonial

      open house led to a favourable outcome for us.
      We chose Banham Dark for the sale of our father's house because they offered a clear marketing plan and seemed to take a realistic view of the property's value. Their suggestion of an early "open house" with sealed bids led to a very favourable outcome, with completion within 2 months of putting the property on the market. Phil was extremely helpful and supportive throughout the entire sale process.
      All the best for 2018
