Selling Your Home

1. Valuation:
We will advise you on the current market valuation of your property taking recent property sales in your area into account.

2. Marketing:
We will market your property with our brochures, via property websites and with our For Sale boards.

3. Presentation:
Sometimes the smallest of changes can make a big difference in the first impressions that a potential purchaser will receive. We can advise you on ways to maximise your property's potential.

4. Legal Issues:
• Contact your solicitor now so that they can go through the conveyancing process with you.
• If you have a mortgage on the property, now is the time to talk to your lending institution to establish the settlement figure and any conditions they may impose.
• You will need to engage a BER Assessor as you are required by law to provide a BER certificate for the property to show its energy rating. We recommend Peter Thompson. Contact Peter on 086-3130682 or email him at ber@pdt-architect.com

5. Agree the price:
Once offers are received, we will negotiate on your behalf and advise you step by step on our progress.

6. Selling your property:
Once a price has been agreed the buyer pays a deposit, typically 2.5%, refundable in the event of the sale not going ahead prior to Contracts being signed. Decide now what items you will include in the sale and when you will be in a position to vacate the property. The buyer may arrange for a structural survey of your property to be carried out and their lending institution may arrange for their own valuation to be done.

7. Contracts Stage:
Solicitors will arrange for the exchange of contracts and the balance of the 10% deposit will be paid. Agree on a completion date.

8. Completion:
On or prior to the closing date for the sale you will vacate the property and leave keys with your solicitor. On the closing day itself, the buyer pays the balance of the purchase monies to your solicitor and is given the keys. Congratulations! Your house is now sold.
