Selling Your Home
  • paragraph

    Burnap + Abel will give you clear and honest advice from the outset, allowing you the best possible chance of achieving your asking price in a fair timescale.

    Our dedicated staff will get to know you and your property, allowing us to tailor make a service that suits your needs.

    As standard our marketing package includes. (FREE OF CHARGE!!)

    + Professional Photography :- Shows your home in its best possible light, meaning a greater chance of enquiries and viewings which in turn gives you (the vendor) the chance to receive the best possible price for your home.

    + Clear Floor Plan with total SQ footage :- According to Rightmove 53% of buyers will click out of the details if there is not a floor plan.

    + Energy Performance Certificate :- This is a legal requirement that will be requested by solicitors once the property has gone 'under offer' and we will make sure that you (the vendor) have one in place when the property is to go on the market.

    + Video tour with added audio :- Highlights the properties unique selling points which in turn should provide more enquiries and viewing requests.

    + Full Colour HD property Brochure :- It is important to stand out from the crowd and the full colour HD brochure will help convert enquiries to viewings which again helps you get the best possible price for your home.

    + Marketing on all major property portals :- We advertise your home on all the major websites..... this means your property will reach a wider audience, giving you the best chance possible to achieve more viewings and receive more offers.

    + Accompanied viewings for any customer :- We are aware that you (the vendor) can have busy lives which makes it difficult for you to be available for viewings. We can accompany viewings so there is less chance on missing out on potential buyers.

    + Local Knowledge & Local Staff :- It is important that the agent that you instruct has a good knowledge of the local area, especially as there are more and more out of town buyers looking to move and invest in the area. We have local staff with great local knowledge of the area and that can be the  difference in securing you (the vendor) a viewer/buyer or sitting on the market.

    + Advertising on mobile platforms :- According to Rightmove   70% of traffic comes through the mobile app.

    + Point of contact 24 hours a day, 7 days a week :- We understand selling/buying is a stressful process and therefore we provide our customers with our mobile numbers. This can be very useful if after hour negotiations are needed to secure a sale/purchase.

      They secured me a buyer within a week
      Craig T - 
      I chose Burnap + Abel as I had heard great things from friends who had used them in Folkestone. I met with Eamonn who provided me with a realistic valuation and was one of the only agents to show me where his price was coming from. His professional attitude and the fact they offered me the widest marketing package with no upfront charge and a competitive fee was what sealed the deal. They secured me a buyer within a week and I am delighted with the service I have received.

      DON'T GO TO ANY OTHER AGENT!

      Cannot recommend these guys enough. Modern and forward thinking agents who you can trust. They literally took the stress from us and dealt with everything efficiently; always keeping us updated at every stage. Doesn't matter who answers the phone, they all know what's going on and therefore are able to answer questions. Dealt with Alan for our mortgage and he was brilliant at giving advice to get the best deal. They push to get things completed and get results. Such a friendly team and we hope we stay in touch with them. DON'T GO TO ANY OTHER AGENT!

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      polite, professional and above all proactive 
      Sarah & Phill F - 
      As a property investor I have dealt with numerous estate agents over the years. Some better than others but I've never had an agent go above and beyond my expectations like Charlotte did! We had a particularly long chain and she kept us updated at least weekly on it's progress. She was polite, professional and above all proactive every step of the way, even to the extent she chased our exchange on her day off!Well done Burnap & Abel for employing excellent staff and being the very best in your field.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Great experience from start to finish
      Sarah & Josh - 
      Great experience from start to finish buying with Charlotte at Burnap & Abel. Charlotte listened to our needs and our previous experience of a house falling through and was there to reassure us that each step was moving as it should and what we should expect next (as we were first time buyers), she also helped us keep a good level of communication with the seller to know what's best for each party.When we viewed the property Charlotte pointed out the aspects of the house we were looking for but was also honest about the things that we would need to do upon moving in. 
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Gone above and beyond to help 
      Brett & Laura - 
      I have just completed on a purchase via Burnap + Abel in Dover and I have been very lucky to have Charlotte as my agent. I just wanted to pass onto you how amazing she has been. The sale of my partners house was done privately but the buyer was using the mortgage adviser in the Burnap office. I work within the customer service industry so fully understand how hard it can be working with the public, but Charlotte has really gone above and beyond to help make this potentially awkward process as smooth and stress free as possible. Every step of the way she has been there to explain and answer all of my worries and questions no matter how big or small. It's lovely to see someone who actually cares about their job and has time to help. Myself and my partner cannot thank her enough for all her hard work and guidance and I just wanted to pass this onto you as she is a true credit to your Dover office.
