SELLING YOUR PROPERTY
The process of selling should start by getting your property valued. McKillop and Gregory have a straightforward attitude to giving accurate marketing advice on your property to try and obtain the best possible price in the timescale you require. This is a free service with no obligation.
Preparing your home for marketing
We prepare draft details on your property with photographs, room sizes, the EPC and floorplan and this is then sent to you for your approval. We advise you on how to present your house in the best possible way to attract as much interest from potential buyers.
The property is then promoted through the internet, through the Salisbury Journal and our office in Castle Street and accompanied viewings can take place seven days a week subject to availability.
Offers on your property
Once viewings have started on your property, we always get feedback and let you know viewers comments. When offers are received these will be discussed with you. We act purely on your behalf to negotiate the best price in the best timescale for you before accepting any offer.
The sale process
Once an offer has been accepted solicitors are then instructed. We can recommend local solicitors if required as well as local surveyors and we keep a very proactive watch on all our sales with regular updates to all parties.
Progressing the sale
One of the most important parts of the sale are making sure the chain, if there is one, stays together so regular communication with other estate agents is vital.
You should never have to ring us for an update on your sale as we will keep in touch with you on a regular basis.
Exchanging contracts & completion day
The timescale between the offer being accepted and exchange of contract is anything between 8 - 12 weeks. This is often due to delays with searches, with chains, with mortgage offers being received and all the other matters involved with the sales process. Once all the legal process is in order, we should be able to agree a date for exchanging contracts and completion. This is finalised between both solicitors and the full chain and will be subject to your booking of removals.
On exchange of contract a deposit is paid throughout the chain and then you are legally tied into the purchase and sale. On completion day the balance of the purchase price including any mortgage monies will be handed over. Solicitors will notify us, and we will then have great pleasure in handing over keys to our buyers on this all important day.
