Advice to Sellers
  • paragraph

    Creative thinking works in today's market.

    There's no right way to sell, but there are a few simple rules:

    • Market your property whilst searching for your next home - it could put you in the best position when your ideal property becomes available.

    • Present your home well. Remove clutter where you can, tend to your grounds, even tidy the garage or shed, but refurbishment before selling isn't always the right choice.

    • Good early decisions will save you time and money.

    • Consider offers carefully. We'll help you sift through the pros and cons to reach the best decisions. Purchasers see the positives during accompanied viewings and open days - a DIY approach rarely secures the best buyer.

    • Be ready to exchange contracts as soon as you can to secure a legal commitment. We'll help smooth over any delays in the legal process to keep your buyers on side.

    There's no substitute for quick, impartial feedback and guidance from trusted professionals.

Additional Services

    Auctions are a tried and tested way of buying and selling property. In order to appeal to as wide a market as possible, DOMVS is offering two different types of auction.

    Traditional Auction

    On the fall of the gavel, the successful bidder pays a 10% deposit and is legally bound to buy the property. Completion is within 28 days. The seller is also legally bound to sell. This type of auction favours cash buyers and investors.

    Auction Plus

    The successful bidder pays a non-refundable deposit of £3,500 on the fall of the gavel, and agrees to complete within a maximum 42 days. Under this scheme, the buyer has the option to withdraw within 28 days.

    If you are looking to buy and your home is under offer with exchange of contracts imminently anticipated, this auction is ideal for you as it enables you to bid against cash buyers. For sellers, it opens up the auction to a wider audience and creates a livelier bidding environment.

    DOMVS will help you determine which auction is best for you.

    In the first instance, a negotiator from our Residential Sales department will appraise your house and circumstances. If an auction is the best option, we will put you in touch with our auctioneer who will be pleased to answer all your queries.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      I changed agencies to DOMVS and I am so glad I did
      Our sale was 18 months from showing to exchange, not much fun! But despite the stress, emotional highs and lows Tim Grainger, Laura Holt and Marcus Pound were wonderful. Always available ( they respond almost instantly) even on days off, professional, calm and always reporting the facts back - even if they're ones you don't want to hear!

      I changed agencies to go with DOMVS and I am so glad I did. Definitely way above and beyond expectations Tim and his team are amazing.
    • Seller Testimonial

      This is the second time I have sold with DOMVS!
      This is the second time I have sold with Domvs and can't recommend them highly enough. The time and attention given to preparing our property for sale made all the difference and they handled the whole process, through to completion, very professionally. It has to be said that Marcus has the patience of a saint!
    • Seller Testimonial

      Can't speak highly enough of the team.
      Can't speak highly enough of the team. The most important thing in the sale of a high-value property is the presentation to the purchasers in which they excelled and sold the property. Well done.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Laura Holt was absolutely amazing.
      Laura Holt was absolutely amazing in helping us purchase our dream home, we can't thank her and the rest of the team enough for going the extra mile for us. DOMVS were very good in every aspect of the sale, couldn't fault in any way at all. Highly recommended.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      This was over and beyond what we expected!
      We sold our property privately so did not have an Estate Agent. Domvs were the Estate agents for the property we were buying. We really appreciate all the help and support they gave us from the first viewing to the final exchange. We have to say a big thank you to Marcus for doing all the communicating with our solicitor and our seller. This was over and beyond what we would have expected him or the Company to do. Without this help, we would still have been waiting to exchange.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      We were very pleased with the service from DOMVS
      We were very pleased with the service from DOMVS who was the agent for both our sale and purchase. Polly was particularly helpful in dealing with some issues that arose with our purchase and ensured that we ended up securing our family home. Thank you!
