Understanding The Process
Although the majority of transactions have a number of similarities, we appreciate that no transaction is exactly the same. We therefore create a bespoke package for every client based on their individual requirements. Our empathetic, proactive and tailored service is what sets us apart from all others.
Whether you are selling a property due to a bereavement, require a change of lifestyle, are looking to free up funds for retirement or are expanding your investment portfolio, RM English can help.
Although we will guide you through the process completely, you may like to read through the following points which outline our comprehensive approach to selling a property.
Valuation & Instruction
The importance of an accurate and justified valuation of a property cannot be understated. Other than the obvious valuation of the property itself, many other, more complex factors will be expertly considered and applied to your valuation. This is why we at RM English have refined our valuation methodology, incorporating both micro and macro factors present in your specific market when providing a valuation. This ensures you get the most accurate valuation possible for your property, ensuring the best return on investment and effectively managing expectations.
A market appraisal should include a figure, advice, and a marketing strategy from which you can proceed with confidence towards a sale.
Following an appraisal you move to the instruction phase, which is the process of selecting an agent, such as RM English to represent you formally.
Sales & Marketing
Once you have instructed RM English to sell your property, we will then begin to create the marketing material ready for sale. We will provide you with expert advice on ways to maximise the features of your home, land or buildings ready for photography. We ensure each property is staged tastefully with enticing imagery and engaging descriptions to effectively promote the sale of your home.
We combine traditional and modern marketing practices to promote your property effectively.
Through the use of office displays, boards, property portals, our website and social media platforms, we market both locally and to a national audience.
We can offer accompanied viewings for your convenience, should you require this service. We delve into the background of every applicant to ensure that as a client you are fully aware of who is interested in your property, allowing for informed decisions to be made when an offer is placed.
Offers & Negotiation
Having an experienced, dedicated and professional team in place is imperative at this stage. The experienced negotiators at R M English will assess the background and proceedability of all applicants who decide to offer. Within the negotiation process we will work closely with you to facilitate the best outcome and maximise your return.
Our sales progression team will keep in regular contact with all parties within a chain including vendors, purchasers, agents and solicitors so that you are kept fully informed all the way through to completion.
