Selling your property
At Living Spaces, we turn a time consuming process into something much easier, because we know how much a home means.
Our qualified valuer will conduct a formal valuation of the property to advise on the price to market your property. The Valuer will be able to answer any questions you may have about selling. Please allocate approximately 45 minutes for this appointment.
A property’s valuation is not necessarily the same as the price it will eventually sell for – the buyer may pay more or less than the initial valuation.
We will prepare quality property particulars, using laser measuring equipment and fantastic digital photography.
You will receive a draft brochure for your approval.
Your home will be marketed via a number of methods:
- Market leading websites, including OnTheMarket, Rightmove and our own website
- Window display in our superbly positioned Grey Street office, which is open six days a week
- A variety of publications and social media platforms
We will also match your property details with suitable buyers on our extensive mailing list.
All viewings for your property will be accompanied by a member of our team, as we find that potential buyers are more at ease when the owners are not present for viewings.
Once viewings have taken place, feedback for the property will be provided to you. The feedback will be noted so that any trends which arise can be addressed, and so that we can be proactive moving forward with the marketing.
Once we are in a position where we are receiving offers for your property, we will look to financially qualify all offers so that we can proceed knowing the funds are in place to buy.
All offers will be put forward to you verbally and in writing for your consideration.
Once you have accepted an offer for your property, solicitors will need to be instructed and a Memorandum of Sale provided which we will complete for you. It is very important that solicitors are instructed in a timely manner so that the legal process can begin and draft contract documentation can be sent to the buyer’s solicitors as soon as possible.
We will be there to assist throughout this process, touching base with solicitors and all parties regularly to make sure it is progressing as expected.
Once all legal work is completed and both you and the buyer are happy, a completion date will be agreed. This is the date that keys will be handed over to your new buyer. Prior to this, an exchange of contracts will take place, making the sale legally binding for all parties – this also sets out the agreed completion date so that it can not be changed.
On the day of completion, we will arrange with yourself for all keys to be at our office so that once the full funds are received by your solicitor, we will hand keys over to the buyer.
