Selling Guide...
  • paragraph

    Your house is likely to be your most valuable asset, so don't settle for anything but the best.

    This is the place you have poured time, money and effort into. It's your home and you love it. But, for whatever reason, it's time to move on.

    Some things are a given when you're selling your home. You want minimum hassle, a speedy sale and the best possible price. But what about adding an agent that really thinks about the detail to that list, too? An agent who is immersed in the local area and totally gets what the buyers want? An agent who will walk into your home and know instantly which little things will make the world of difference to the sale.

    This is where Belvoir agents come into their own!

    We'll be right here with you

    Selling a property can be a complicated and frustrating process. We'll be there with you from start to finish, from managing viewings to sorting out complicated chains. Our agents will give you honest advice on all the little things, there is never a 'silly question'.

    If you're thinking about selling your home, here are a few handy tips from us

    • Work with your agent and make them work for you. At Belvoir we believe every seller and their home are unique. We'd like you to tell us what made you fall in love with your home and what you enjoy most about it now. We'll highlight this information when we start marketing your home to like-minded buyers.
    • Make sure your agent is aware of your situation, too. If you are just testing the water and aren't 100% committed to moving, they need to know. Likewise, if you can't move for six months, or, if you need to move quickly, tell your agent and they may be able to regulate the pace of the sale.
    • Listen to your agent's advice. They know the local market and have your interests at heart.

    Money matters

    Settling on an asking price will be one of the biggest decisions you make in this process. Invite a selection of local agents to come in and value your property, but don't just go with the agent that provides the highest appraisal and/or the lowest fee. An over-inflated asking price may really inhibit the speed of the sale. A low agent fee may mean you get a mediocre service.

    Do your own research on the Land Registry website and find out what similar properties to yours have sold for in the area. If an agent gives you a much higher valuation than the others, ask them to provide examples of comparable sales.

    Preparing your home

    There's no avoiding those little DIY jobs that have been waiting to be done for years when you are looking to sell. Take some time to fix those loose floorboards, finish paint jobs, nail down the squeaking floorboard and fit the skirting board. These details matter.

    Once that's done, have a good clear out. Get rid of any clutter and thin out your personal items, like bulky ornaments, family photographs, paperwork and toys. This gives buyers the space to visualise themselves living in your house.

    Before the viewings begin, make sure your home is sparkling clean from top to bottom, especially the kitchen and bathroom. If needs be, have the carpets professionally shampooed, particularly if you have pets.

    Improve your home's kerb appeal, too. Paint your front door, polish up the brass (if you have any) and sweep away any leaves from the front of the house. Mow the lawn and make sure your garden looks neat and tidy. Perhaps show how particular areas can be used for al fresco dining with strategically placed garden furniture.

    By law, you will need to commission an EPC (energy performance certificate) for your property. Your estate agent can help you to organise this. You won't be able to market the property without one, so get it sorted as soon as possible.

    Line up your solicitor and do some pre-planning

    Instruct a solicitor from the outset so that you are ready for action. Waiting until you have accepted an offer can delay the process unnecessarily.

    Make sure you have all of your paperwork in order as this can really speed things up. So, if your property is leasehold, make sure you have the papers ready to pass on to your solicitor. Likewise, obtain any planning or building consents well in advance - these can help clinch a sale. Your estate agent and solicitor will be able to advise you on the type of paperwork you need to gather.

    When the viewings start

    It is usually best to let your estate agent show the viewers around whilst you go out - they will feel more comfortable if you're not there. This means they can have an open discussion about your house without fear of causing offence. They'll also be able to take their time imagining how your home could become their home.

    It's a tricky one, but try and work around viewings. It really helps if potential buyers are able to view your home at a time that suits them. If not, there's the risk they'll see another property and forget yours.

    If you have tenants in the property, give them plenty of notice about your plans and keep things friendly. That way, they're more likely to keep the place looking tidy and accommodate viewings.

    If at all possible, pack your pets off for a day trip to the neighbours or in-laws. Another nice touch is to leave any parking space you may have free for the viewers. Something as simple as easy parking will help ensure they enter your home in a good frame of mind.

    Avoid strong cooking smells and don't smoke in the house in the run up to viewings. Open windows and place a few bunches of fresh flowers around the house to freshen things up and demonstrate that you care about what the buyer thinks.

    After the viewings

    Do take feedback on board - if all the feedback from viewings points towards a particular issue - do something about it.

Buying with Belvoir...

    Property Buying Guide
    Buying a property is a big step involving a substantial long-term financial commitment, so think hard about what you can afford. You will need to consider the assets you have - like savings - as well as the money that's coming in and going out.

    Although it may reduce your buying options, you don't want to commit to a mortgage and then realise you can't afford some of the nicer things in life! It may sound obvious but take time to think of all the things you spend money on throughout the year, even without a mortgage. Using a Budget Calculator to help you determine what you may be able to afford on a new mortgage - this simple calculator could save you a lot of time and pain in the long run.

    Once you know what you are able to pay back on a mortgage each month you can use a Mortgage Calculator to find out what total mortgage amount your monthly payments could represent.

    In addition to understanding your monthly budget limits, you need to work out your one-off moving costs.

    For most people buying a property the biggest ongoing cost is the mortgage (simply a loan secured against a property). You can't sell the property without paying off the mortgage first and if you don't keep up the repayments the lender can repossess the property.

    Because of the credit crunch, it is vital that you secure a mortgage with a lender before starting the searching process. This way, when you find the right property, you will avoid being beaten to it by another buyer and you will also be in a much stronger negotiating position.

    Generally, the best mortgage deals are available to people who put in at least 15% of the property's value, leaving the mortgage company to lend the other 85%.

    If you put in less than 10%, you may have to pay a "Higher Lending Fee" (sometimes called a Mortgage Indemnity or a Mortgage Guarantee Charge) which will add to the cost of your mortgage. As a rough guide, providing the amount you are borrowing is at least 85% of the property value, budget to add 1.75% onto the Bank of England base rate, which will give you a ball park figure of the likely annual interest rate.

    • Seller Testimonial

      "Due to I'll health our sales agent had to take a step back her replacement for the task of do the negotiations of the sale of ours house was Morgan.

We are sure he will be a valuable asset to Belvoir  Sales. Many thanks Morgan" Rob and Sue Charlton.
    • Seller Testimonial

      "Belvoir Grantham has acted on my behalf over a period of more than 10 years, first as a landlord, then during the sale of 2 houses and currently as a tenant. I have been thoroughly impressed with their service throughout that time in all 3 roles. Everyone with whom I have had dealings has been unfailingly friendly, helpful and efficient. Especially noteworthy was the way in which they protected me from accepting an offer from an enthusiastic buyer who promised no chain, quick completion and more than the asking price, but whom it turned out did not have access to the necessary funds. An ideal buyer was subsequently found within the week. Belvoir Grantham has served me well and continues to do so. I have no hesitation in recommending them heartily" APS
