Your guide to the selling process

A step-by-step guide to selling your property.

So, you’ve decided to put your property on the market. What happens now? Here’s our step-by-step guide to selling your house.

Step One – Getting your property on to the market

As soon as you instruct us, one of our team will come out to value, view and measure your property. We will then draft up the marketing details, which you will see and approve before they go to print.

We will start to contact our existing database of buyers we know are looking for Cotswolds properties, even before the marketing details are printed.

We will agree a marketing plan with you. This can include registering your property on national property websites, local and national advertising, PR, and a For Sale board, should you wish one.

Step Two – Viewings and offers

We will arrange viewings subject to any restrictions you specify (we accompany all viewings so you don’t need to be at home).

We will give you detailed feedback from the potential buyers and let you know of any offers that have been made, and the background information you will need (such as whether the purchaser is a cash buyer or have a property to sell)

Step Three – Making the sale

We will negotiate with the purchaser on your behalf and accept an offer when you instruct us to do so.

We will liaise with your solicitor regarding the legal formalities and maintain the momentum to achieve an early exchange of contracts (chasing up items such as the survey, mortgage valuation and other outstanding matters as they arise).

Finally, we will help with completion arrangements, including handing over the keys to the new owners of your property.
