Choosing an Agent to sell your property is a big decision and you should consider many different factors when making your choice. Where do they advertise? How up-to-date is their website? Are they on the right property websites? Who do I speak to? These are all fairly obvious questions but what about the less obvious? Do they have state-of-the-art cameras so that the photographs of your property will look absolutely as good as they can? Will they arrange for the obligatory Energy Performance Certificate to be provided? Do they produce full colour detailed floor-plans of your property? At Spencer Munson we pride ourselves on not just doing the obvious, but taking care of the finer details too.

Here is a simple step-by-step guide to selling your property:
  1. Valuation.
    It is vital that the initial valuation is accurate and current. Make sure you feel comfortable with the Agent and don't necessarily just go with the highest valuation. Ask for evidence and justification of both the price and local knowledge.
     
  2. Appoint a legal representative.
    The successful sale of your property will involve a Solicitor or Conveyancer. We can put you in touch with a range of people, from local, 'personal' Solicitors, to more modern web based solutions.
     
  3. Getting ready.
    This is the time to think about how your property will look and appeal to potential buyers. Needless to say a good tidy up will always help and you should endeavour to maximise natural light throughout. We will then take photographs and commence marketing.
     
  4. Marketing.
    Attracting a buyer can be achieved in a number of ways. In our experience a good spread across traditional advertising, for example the local newspaper and area specific magazines, through to online web portals like Rightmove and Zoopla, provides an ideal mix. In addition we have computer based matching of applicants to properties, along with email alerts, as well as our very own 'Together Magazine' which is emailed to all on our mailing list on a monthly basis.
     
  5. Viewings.
    These can be conducted in a number of ways. Some clients like to undertake them themselves, others prefer for their Agent to. Recently there has been a trend towards 'open-days' or block viewings which have proven to be very successful. Your Agent will help guide and advise you through all the available options.
     
  6. Agreeing a sale.
    All offers will be communicated to you both verbally and in writing. Once you are happy with the price agreed we will prepare a Memorandum of Sale which is then sent to all parties and their legal representatives.
     
  7. Conveyancing.
    Your Solicitor will now start the legal process of selling your property. This will include dealing with enquiries raised by the buyer's Solicitor, dealing with the Land Registry and confirming full details of any fixtures and fittings included in the sale.
     
  8. Exchange and completion.
    Once the legal process is complete, your Solicitor will arrange exchange of contracts. A deposit (usually 10%) is paid by the buyer and at this point they are legally obliged to purchase the property. A date is agreed for completion to take place. On the day of completion the rest of the money is transferred to your Solicitor and your property is now sold!
