Steps to Selling


chossing the best suited agent for you

Always trust your gut instinct and choose an agent that makes you feel at ease with the whole process; in fact selling a property can be extremely stressful and when times do get tough you will certainly need a reliable agent that’s willing to step up and take the load off. Lee Ward & Warren Peach the managing directors of Flagstones have a combined experience of over 30 years, working within the local property market and are available 24/7 for anyone within the local community that requires the service of a professional estate agents.


find the right property for you

Building rapport with a local professional agent is key, if you are going to stand a chance of being informed about new instructions coming to the market. The lettings market is extremely buoyant at present with short supply levels across the borough. Therefore, do your research beforehand and find out which local agents are more likely to instruct the kind of home you are looking for; you will want to ensure you are registered with these agents and touch base with them at least once a week to see if any potential properties are due to come to the market.


Exploring options

Firstly, decide whether selling is ultimately the right decision; what other options have you explored, such as letting the property or possibly even refinancing; we always advise that you speak to a mortgage broker as they may be able to help.


chain or no chain

You will also need to decide whether you will be renting once sold or buying if the latter inform your agent of this immediately to ensure they make it clear to potential purchasers that this will be a chain-related sale therefore, transparency from your agent to buyers will avoid any unwanted surprises once thoroughly progressed through sale process.


legal requirements

There will also be legal requirements to consider firstly, you will need a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) and if Letting you will need a Gas Safety Certificate and an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR).


Market Appraisal

We also recommend that you obtain more than one valuation; it’s always wise to have a comparison in order to compare different facts and figures and, if possible, ensure your property is prepared for sale at the point of valuation to avoid any delays from taking advantage of immediate serious demand.


specialist marketing proposal

Once the property is instructed with Flagstones Property Group one of out representatives will organise an appointment for you to attend to with out Sales and Marketing Director Lorik Berisha. During this meeting, Lorik will share a full insight about the impact of digital marketing on your property.


offer process

The law stipulates that all offers should be presented in writing within 48 hours of being received. Once an offer has been formally received you will need to make an important decision to either accept, reject or perhaps counter-offer? You will also want to see proof that the correct professional due diligence has been carried out by your agent to ensure your buyer is able to proceed without any issues.


chossing the correct solicitor

Lastly, once an offer has been formally accepted, you will need to instruct a reliable contactable solicitor to progress your sale, please bear in mind that choosing the wrong solicitor in some cases can prove disastrous for more advice on what to look out for when instructing a solicitor please refer to our top 10 tips conveyancing page.
