    Registering with Agents/Websites
    image cannot be displayed

    With today's technology finding a new home has never been easier and in many cases is just a click away. In addition to the Hunters website we suggest that you register your requirements with the three big players, Rightmove, Zoopla & On the Market. Like Hunters they will send you e-mail alerts of new properties listed in the area your search.

    A quick visit to your local agents is also worthwhile, after all you can't beat the traditional in branch registration where a face can be put to a name and your specific requirements can be discussed in detail.

    To register directly with us means that you will get alerts before the properties go live on all the major websites. Obviously the distinct advantage of this is that you will get your foot in the door before others and potentially you could be one of the first to view.
  • paragraph

    Finding the Right Property
    Now that your finances are in place and you have registered with websites & agents, its time to view properties. When you identify a potential property of interest we suggest that rather than email the agent to view you telephone and request a mutually convenient time/date to view..

    When viewing, follow some of our top tips;

    - Drive-by the property. Often this will be a very valuable exercise and may save you wasting your time at a later date
    - Scout the neighbourhood. Drive down one evening and see what the neighbourhood is like.
    - Bring a relative or a friend with you. Its always great to have an extra pair of eyes to spot problems you may have missed
    - Take your time. Its the biggest purchase of your life, so check the lights, water pressure, cupboards, windows, etc . In older properties keep an eye out for potential problems, such as damp or structural movement.
    - Ask questions. Ask the estate agents or the seller questions about the property. If you spot damp patch, ask about its history. Has it been treated? and so on....
    - Be Friendly. Build a relationship with the agent who is probably dealing with dozens of clients, after all you want to be the one the agent calls when he gets a new listing. Often being friendly to the seller/estate agents will be helpful if you offer on the property.
    - Feedback. Please provide the estate agent with feedback when requested, this information is not just valuable for the seller but will also allow your agent to build a picture of your exact requirements. When we repeatedly leave messages requesting feedback from clients who refuse to reply, you are rapidly heading for the achieve bin!
  • paragraph

    Instructing a Solicitor
    image cannot be displayed
    Once you have agreed a purchase price you will need to instruct a solicitor or conveyancer to handle the legal paperwork. Choosing the right solicitor is important for the efficient progression of the sale. If you choose a local, experienced solicitor, you are much more likely to experience a smooth trouble free transaction that if you use a large conveyancing firm on-line. In this respect cheapest is definitely NOT best!

    See Additional Services for more details in Hunters Legal Services.
  • paragraph

    Sales Progression

    Our experience has taught us that the most stressful time for any sale is in the period leading up to an exchange of contracts. It can be both emotional and frustrating at times when nothing seems to be happening, therefore it is essential to keep good lines of communication open with your agent who will be doing everything possible to progress your sale and keep you informed of developments.

    At Hunters, the most usual arrangement is that the negotiator that agreed the sale will take ownership, progressed the sale and be your point of contact during the process. In so doing you will be dealing with just one person who will have the knowledge and experienced required

  • paragraph

    Exchange & Completion
    When you have agreed upon a date, your solicitor will request that you sign the contract and pay your deposit (usually 10%). At this stage your solicitor will exchange contracts and a completion date will be set. Its now time arrange time of work, removal men, pet/child cover & enlist friends/family to help. Once the money has been transferred on the day of completion the estate agent will have authority to release the key to you. Congratulations, you're now home owners.

    image cannot be displayed
    You are required to have an up to date Energy Performance Certificate to market your property. This provides the prospective buyers with information regarding the energy performance of your individual property. We work closely with a local expert Inspector who will visit your property to obtain the necessary information required to compile the Report and this will be provided direct to the branch to ensure that there is no delay in marketing your property. The Report will belong to you and will be valid for a ten year period. If you currently hold an EPC for your property it is important to consider whether any changes have been made since the supply of the certificate that may have affected the energy performance of the property (for example, a new central heating boiler or loft insulation).

      I do not think I could have had any better service
      The process of buying and selling a house has become an extremely problematic process but throughout the whole procedure all of the staff at Hunters Tenterden have been polite knowledgeable, extremely professional and extremely helpful. I do not think I could have had any better service. I am extremely greatful for their help ,support and ultimate successful conclusion to my buying and selling of a property. Thank you so much Bruno Del Tufo
    • Seller Testimonial

      extremely helpful and very professional
      We have just completed on the sale of two properties through Hunters in Tenterden. Throughout these transactions we found Andrew, Jake and Laura extremely helpful and very professional. Within two months of listing the properties both sales had completed and this timescale far exceeded our expectations. We would wholeheartedly recommend their services.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Jake dealt with the sale of our property with enthusiasm and professionalism at every corner, the back up of Andrew and Laura was second to none and would highly recommend them and have already booked in to use them again
    • Seller Testimonial

      An efficient and very friendly service. Kept in touch on a regular basis with updates and more. Highly recommended and would without doubt use them again.
    • Seller Testimonial

      brilliant service
      Andrew, Jake and Laura gave us brilliant service from the initial marketing of our property through to completion. Communication and attention to every detail was excellent - we'd highly recommend this team of dedicated professionals.
    • Seller Testimonial

      they really showed up the other agents!
      I sold my house through Hunters last year. I'd lost a previous buyer which was a hellish experience but Andrew found us a really committed couple to buy and handled the sale through any glitches. He took the time and trouble to chase the process, resolve any problems and was absolutely professional throughout. Hunters got us less people to view but each and every one had been fully briefed properly and expressed far more interest than the many viewers the other agent had got us, I was pleased that Hunters took out the time wasters from the equation. We are now really happy in our new house thanks to Hunters, we'd really recommend them. They've also just handled my sister's purchase and again were brilliant - they really showed up the other agents!
    • Seller Testimonial

      team have been fantastic
      What can I say, Andrew and his team have been fantastic. Have kept me informed at every stage. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to sell their house.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Cannot thank all the staff at Hunters enough
      Cannot thank all the staff at Hunters enough, for their kind help and support through all the many stages of my house sale. Not only did they keep me informed, every step of the way, but went that extra mile with sorting out other problems that tend to crop up with these transactions. They are easy to talk to, explain all the different stages, and nothing seems too much trouble, in my opinion well worth the cost, as opposed to other cheaper companies. You cannot put a price on excellent service and a friendly voice to talk too at what can be a very stressful time.
