To be successful in finding a buyer it is important to choose an agent with care and to prepare your property for the market; first impressions really do make a difference.
- Step 1 - How much is your house worth?
Arrange for property valuation with one of our experienced expert valuers to discuss your property and recommend the best asking price for it. This process starts with one of us arranging to meet you at your house at a time that suits you. If required, we can advise you of improvements, which might enhance the property in the eyes of a purchaser and discuss fees and services that we can provide for you.

- Step 2 - Instructing your agent
Once you have decided to proceed with selling your property we will confirm the terms that we have agreed in writing via our Terms of Business. Both parties will sign these and they will form the basis for the agreement between us.
- Step 3 - Presenting Your Property Before Viewing
First impressions count, presenting your property is critical to a successful sale. Consider any DIY job that needs done and add a fresh coat of paint where necessary and ensure the house is clean throughout.
- Step 4 - Marketing Your Property
We understand that excellent presentation and maximum exposure play key roles in achieving the best price. Via extensive advertising and exposure on the key property portals we expose your house to the maximum possible audience.
- Step 5 - Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
You are required by law to have Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) of your property before advertising it for sale. EPC give information on a building's energy efficiency in a sliding scale from 'A' (very efficient) to 'G' (least efficient). We will be able to arrange for your EPC at a competitive rate. For more information on EPC please visit www.dfpni.gov.uk.
- Step 6 - Accompanied Viewing
It is well worth making sure your property, both inside and outside, is presented in its best light to ensure widespread appeal. It is advisable not to clutter the house, minimization is very important in all areas of the house. We will provide feedback after every viewing, either by telephone or email, as required.
- Step 7 - Instructing A Conveyancing Specialist Solicitor
It is important that you find a reliable and experienced conveyancing solicitor who will deal with transferring ownership from the seller to the buyer. A solicitor with local knowledge of the area will be an advantage.
- Step 8 - Receiving An Offer
Once we receive an offer, we will notify you and will also inform you of any special conditions to the offer.
- Step 9 - Sale Agreed
Once a suitable purchaser has been introduced and terms agreed, the buyer's mortgage lender will commission a structural survey of your house and his solicitor will make enquiries about your house. We will make sure that the sale remains on track by liaising with solicitors, purchasers and vendors through to a successful exchange of contracts.
- Step 10 - Exchange Of Contract
After all Preliminary enquiries and searches are complete, and the fixtures and fittings you are happy to leave behind have been fulfilled, the solicitors will arrange for both parties to sign the contract. Once this is done, the deposit (usually 10% of the purchase price) will be transferred by the buyer's solicitor to your solicitor. The completion date is then set by mutual agreement.
- Step 11 - Completion
When the residual money (usually 90%) is transferred from the buyer's solicitor to your solicitor's account, your solicitor will call you when the money has cleared and will inform us to release the keys. Congratulations, your property is now sold!
