  • paragraph

    Downsizing
    The thing about Downsizing is that it is often overlooked by estate agents. We know it can be an emotional time and that quite often a family home is being sold. A home where you have raised your children and spent some of the happiest times in your life. A home where you have so many memories. A home you don't want to move out of.

    The main reason for selling is usually that the house is now too big for just the two of you and there is quite often equity tied up in it. Equity that could be better spent seeing the world or spending precious time with the Grandchildren. The family home can start to feel like a shackle and so it is a very confusing time with very mixed emotions.

    We will make sure that we work closely with you to find out your timescales, whether you are needing help finding a new home and we can work out a plan that best fits these requirements.


  • paragraph

    A Growing Family
    A growing family can be a joyous thing. As parents, your attentions turn to bearing & raising children & wanting to do your best for them.

    This can bring with it a lot of responsibility. Moving with a young family can offer unique stresses & strains: your children might feel worried, you might need help finding good schools, you might be moving away from your support network.

    Our team are sensitive to the needs of growing families &, throughout the moving process, will be trying our best to make the process as easy as possible & to minimise time taken & stress levels.

    Common Customer Objectives

    There are many reasons why people with growing families move & we take our time to familiarise ourselves with your needs & expectations. The most common reasons for them moving are:
    • Moving to be with families - sometimes families are started away from a support network (grandparents & wider family) & it can be nice for people to move closer to home. We recognise this as well as the keenness to move and can advise on the best selling strategy in order to help you get what you want
    • Moving to be in school catchment areas - in order to do the best for our children, we might want to move closer to good schools. There might be a timescale that we need to work to here & we aim to take this into consideration.
    Each of these objectives comes with its own set of expectations. Furthermore, some people with growing families have time to wait, others do not. We intend to demonstrate our understanding of these objectives to show you that we will be sensitive to your needs and will turn whatever constraints you may have into strengths during the selling & negotiating process.

    Selling For The First Time
    First time sellers often have it tough. They may have been through the hassle of buying a house & the stress that it entails but they won't have yet experienced the other side as well: chains, viewings, costs of sale etc.

    For many first-time sellers, the stresses of moving house will be far enough from their mind that they'll have forgotten some of the difficulties they experienced when they bought their first home. This time around, however, these problems can be doubled with buying & selling to be taken care of without the correct advice & guidance.

    We are here to offer first time sellers every help & assistance in making this process as rewarding as possible.
  • paragraph

    Selling for a loved one.
    Buying & selling your own house can be stressful enough but selling the house of a loved one can involve all of the same difficulties without the rewards for you of a new house at the end of it.

    Many of the people selling the properties of loved ones have a strong obligation to that loved one or to their memory in order to do the best that they can by them. Where loved ones are elderly or infirm, those selling have the worries of ensuring their loved ones are getting the right care and attention: time spent visiting hospitals or care homes can sap much of the free time needed for selling a house. Where loved ones have passed away, sometimes their property can be a long way away & it can be difficult to find a trusted agent to handle the process on your behalf.

    Unless you are the surviving spouse of inherited property, receiving an inherited property can be a very long and complicated process. The executor of the estate and the courts can take months to divide the deceased assets. This is often a stressful process for all beneficiaries who are dealing with the loss but also the fact that they may need to sell the inherited property for financial reasons.


    Common Customer Objectives

    There are many reasons why people choose to sell the property of a loved one & we take our time to familiarise ourselves with your needs & expectations. The most common reasons are:
    • The loved one has become unwell suddenly - sudden changes may bring upon sudden costs: the cost of healthcare or social care, for example. These costs can lace a huge burden on the loved one & their family that can often only be accommodated by the sale of their property. Time may be of the essence.
    • The loved one is no longer able to cope - gradual changes can bring their own stresses. Sometimes the loved one may feel that they are able to cope and they are reluctant to sell, putting stress on the family & complicating the issue of sale. The important thing is to ensure that the loved one is happy and well cared-for
    • The loved one has passed away - the passing of a loved one brings sadness and uncharted territory. Waiting for probate to be granted can delay the disposal of a property, pressurising sales and sometimes the loved one's property will be in a different area to you, causing logistical issues and time pressures that you may not have a great deal of experience in dealing with
    Each of these objectives comes with its own set of expectations. Furthermore, some people have time to wait, others do not. We intend to demonstrate our understanding of these objectives to show you that we will be sensitive to your needs and will turn whatever constraints you may have into strengths during the selling & negotiating process.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is probate?

    Probate is a legal document. Receipt of probate is the first step in the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person's property under a will."
    Probate can often take from 6 - 12 months and a decision is then made as to how the deceased assets will be distributed to the beneficiaries

    What happens if I'm under time pressure to sell?

    We recognise that there may be a number of factors pushing you towards a quick sale (bills to pay for the loved one, the costs associated with the administering of the estate of a deceased relative) but we would recommend that you talk to us first to see how we will be able to meet your needs. In an ideal world, you will be able to achieve your asking price in the right timeframe. It is currently a seller's market and the time taken to sell properties is relatively short.

  • paragraph

    Selling to re-locate
    Relocation can bring its own particular brand of problems. For those who have relocated & have an unsold property to deal with, it can be difficult to find trusted agents or partners to keep things moving on their behalf.

    For most relocators, it is important not to have their home hanging around on the market, either because they need to buy a house or because they have already moved & it is important for them to sell as quickly as possible.

    We are here to offer relocators every help & assistance in making this process as rewarding as possible & in ensuring that they get what they want out of the process in a timescale that suits them.

    Common Customer Objectives

    There are many reasons why people choose to downsize & we take our time to familiarise ourselves with your needs & expectations. The most common reasons for selling for the first time are:
    • Moving because of work - there are a couple of main objectives here: sellers are either trying to make a good impression with a new employer & want to be able to be focused on their new opportunity or they have moved with an existing employer & need to ensure that they are up-to-speed as quickly as possible
    • Moving to be closer to family - one of the main objectives for those looking to relocate is to be closer to family. The majority of these sellers are typically older than those moving because of work & they often value finding a trusted seller who they can delegate the management of the sale of their property to
    • Moving abroad - moving abroad for a new life holds infinite possibilities. There are also difficulties with arranging purchases & sales across oceans. In addition, there may be limited time before the move abroad that some sellers might have in order to make their dream of a new life work
    • Starting a new life - some people choose to relocate in order to start a new life (perhaps after the end of a relationship or after a difficult personal time). With this new start comes great optimism & it's important that the sale doesn't hold back the rest of their life
    Each of these objectives comes with its own set of expectations, priorities & problems. We intend to demonstrate our understanding of these objectives to show you that we will be sensitive to your needs and will turn whatever constraints you may have into strengths during the selling & negotiating process.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Totally professional and "up-front"
      We have actually used Goodchilds for nearly 7 years overall, for our old rented property and recently for the sale of our home. Nick Labocha is first class. Totally professional - an "up-front". We had a particularly stressful sale process with an incompetent solicitor and problems with the Land Registry Office. Without Nick's input, smoothing the way at every hurdle, we would have lost the sale. He is A1, nothing is too much trouble for him. And we would thoroughly recommend Goodchilds.
