Step 1. Research to Find a Competitive Asking Price
Most home owners have an idea what their property is worth it’s a good idea to get to know your local housing market and what prices homes have been selling for. Remember you are about to enter a competition and winning means selling at a price you can afford. Compare like for like in the papers and on the internet or in your local papers.

Step 2.  Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
Organise an EPC with a Domestic Energy Assessor who will attend the property and calculate its energy efficiency with a rating. The EU Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings came into effect progressively from 2007 and is an important part of government strategies for tackling climate change. The principle underlying the Directive is to make energy use in buildings transparent by the issuing of a certificate showing the energy rat
Step 3. Appoint a Conveyance or Solicitor
Online conveyancing can save a great deal of time and money. By organising a conveyancing company from the onset you can save money and avoid delays

Step 4.  Prepare Your Home For Sale
Selling a home online means that photographs will play an important part in attracting buyers. Prepare your home for sale de clutter and get the DIY odd jobs finished and out of the way. Make sure no personal items are on display in your photo

Step 5. Visit To Your Home
A representative will visit your home take photos and create a floor plan. They will also confirm your identity by viewing photo ID.

Step 6. Creating Your advert
Once we have the photos and floor plan we will write a description you can add to this but we will need to approve so that it conforms to the Property Misdiscriptions Act. You will check the advert and agree to the content. We then upload the advert to our network 

Step 7. Viewings
Once a buyer is interested in your home they can arrange an appointment over the phone by email or direct to us from your advert. We will then arrange a convenient time for you to accept a viewing. We will also confirm the buyer’s identity and position

Step 8. Feedback
Feedback is a gift and we encourage all potential buyers to give feedback after a viewing.

Step 9. When We receive an Offer For Your Property
As soon as an offer is received we will notify you both verbally and in writing.
Once you have accepted an offer, we will write to all parties and provide the important information needed to progress your sale.

Step 10. Exchange of contracts
Exchange of contracts occurs when all preliminary enquiries from the draft contract and local search queries have been agreed. Once the mortgage offer has been confirmed, the purchaser is ready to exchange contracts with the seller. The completion date is set at this stage. Completion occurs normally a few days to a few weeks after exchange of contracts, depending on the personal requirements of the buyer and seller.


We will advise you and negotiate on your behalf throughout this process, keeping you informed every step of the way.
