At Sharpmove we are committed to our customers and we work around the clock to sell your property. There are various ways of marketing a property, and we take advantage of them all, from internet property portals to the local press. Selling property can be a stressful business, but our extensive experience in the property sector has taught us that maintaining communication between the buyer and the seller is key.
Our team works closely with vendors to give their property a realistic value. Our website is updated daily and you can be assured you will gain maximum exposure in the local market, while being kept informed by us every step of the way.
If you are a family looking to move house, and keen to begin a new life, Sharpmove can help. We can provide housing that is in a family orientated area with good quality, nearby schools and excellent transport facilities, and offer you all the relevant information throughout the process.
Your aim should be to sell your property at the best possible price in the shortest possible time. Our expert valuers in this field, giving us intimate and unparalleled knowledge of property values in your area.
This is why we consistently achieve the asking price across all our clients' properties.
When choosing an estate agent, consider their opening hours, when they will be available to conduct viewings and what kind of marketing your property will receive. These are critical to obtaining the maximum exposure and price for your property.
You should also check if your agent will organise your government-required Energy Performance Certificate on your behalf or if you need to arrange this yourself? Sharpmove can arrange this for you. You must have commissioned an EPC before your property can be marketed.
The successful sale of your property can be reliant on the instruction of an efficient and experienced solicitor. It is a good idea to do some research and make a decision before you put your property on the market as this will help to avoid delays.
We can offer recommendations if required.
First impressions count, making the presentation of your property is critical to a successful sale.
Consider addressing any DIY jobs you have been meaning to get done, add a fresh coat of paint where necessary and try to declutter to make rooms appear larger.
Sharpmove will then take photographs, and write comprehensive property descriptions, all in just one visit.
To find your perfect buyer you need to give your property maximum exposure across a wide range of media.
When you instruct Sharpmove to sell your property you will automatically benefit from our unrivalled, comprehensive marketing which includes: exposure on our website, full colour property details, advertise on all major property websites, local press and email.
Accompanied viewings can be arranged till late evenings Monday - Saturday. Accompanied viewings also mean we can use our expertise to help sell your property.
As soon as an offer is received we will notify you both verbally and in writing.
Any special conditions of the offer will also be stated in writing and we will check the buyer's ability to proceed before you decide whether to accept the offer.
Once you accept an offer we will do the following:
Your solicitor will send out a draft contract to the buyer's solicitor who will then carry out preliminary enquiries. At this stage you will also be able to agree on dates for the survey on your property, exchange of contracts and proposed date for completion.
We will advise you and negotiate on your behalf throughout this process, keeping you informed every step of the way.
There are no legal obligations until contracts are signed.
Exchange of contracts occurs when the following have been confirmed and agreed:
Once the contract has been signed by both parties the deposit (usually 10% of the purchase price) will be telegraphically transferred or paid in the form of a banker's draft by the buyer's solicitor to your solicitor. The completion date is then set by mutual agreement.
Completion is when the residual monies (usually 90%) are transferred from the buyer's solicitor to your solicitor's account.
Your solicitor will call you when the money has cleared in your account and will inform us to release the keys.
