Achieve the Best Price for Your Property with our Sellers' Guide

Selling your home may sound daunting but with a little bit of planning and organisation, it can be a breeze. 

Follow our simple guide to making your sale go smoothly.

Step 1. Obtain an Accurate and Current Valuation

Before listing your property for sale, it's crucial to determine its true value. This knowledge is essential in attracting more viewers and securing better offers. At Property Hub, we understand the importance of accurate pricing to maximize your investment return. Our expert team considers various factors, including market fluctuations, unique features, area amenities, potential in the property, rental yield, tenure, competition from other listings, and more. With our extensive knowledge and experience, we ensure your property is valued correctly.

Step 2. Get an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)

It is a legal requirement for every property to have a valid EPC when marketing. An EPC shows potential buyers how much it is likely to cost to run your home, such as the supply of heating and hot water. It also provides information on how to improve its energy efficiency. 

If you haven't already got an EPC, we can arrange that for you. Please ask us for a quote.  

Step 3. Find the Right Solicitor for Conveyancing:

The success of your property sale depends on finding a reputable conveyancing solicitor. Conveyancing law is complex and requires attention to detail regarding property facts. Choosing the right solicitor can save you time and money.

If you haven't already got a conveyancing solicitor, Property Hub partner with a vast network of trusted solicitor contacts throughout the UK who can help you. 

Step 4. Capture Your Property at its Finest

Presenting your property in the best light is crucial to make a lasting impression on potential buyers. Taking a little time to prepare it for photos and viewings can significantly increase the interest in a property and its potentional achievable price.

At Property Hub, we understand the significance of the first impression. To ensure your property shines, we offer professional house clearance, cleaning and maintenance services. Our recommended service providers have undergone rigorous assessment, ensuring your property is spotless and clutter-free. We know that a clean and well-maintained property enhances its attractiveness to buyers. 

Step 5. Be Seen by Millions of Potential Buyers

To maximize exposure and attract a large pool of potential buyers, we employ a comprehensive marketing approach. Our strategy includes extensive online advertising on major property portals such as Zoopla, Rightmove, and our own website. Additionally, we utilise social media platforms to engage with a wider audience. We leverage our international exposure to share property details across our network of active registered buyers, facilitating access to our portfolios and providing insights into the UK buying and investing processes.

And don't forget the eye-catching power of our striking"FOR SALE" boards, ensuring local residents turn their heads and take notice.

Step 6. Be Flexible over Viewings

We understanding the time constraints both you and your potential buyers have to deal with so it helps to be flexible. That's why we strive to arrange viewings that are convenient for both parties. We are available to conduct viewings from 8 am to 7 pm, Monday to Friday, and 10 am to 4 pm on weekends (excluding Sundays and bank holidays). 

Our knowledgeable team familiarises themselves with the unique features and potential of your property, enabling them to answer questions effectively during viewings, so you can relax and let us take care of your potential buyers.

Step 7. Smooth Negotiations and Sale Progression

When an offer is made on your property, we promptly notify you verbally and in writing. We guide you through the terms of the offer, ensuring a thorough vetting process to verify the buyer's financial position. Once you accept an offer, we initiate the process by preparing a memorandum of sale. We communicate with all parties involved, confirming the price and terms of the deal.

During this stage, we will liaise with solicitors, buyers and involved parties to coordinate surveys, facilitate contract drafting, and address any inquiries raised. Our objective is to resolve any issues before the exchange of contracts, solidifying the legal binding of the sale.

Step 8. Exchange of Contracts 

The exchange of contracts occurs when your solicitor has drawn up the final contracts and you and the buyer agree on the terms and conditions of the sale. Upon signing the contract, the buyer's solicitor pays the agreed-upon deposit to your solicitor, typically 10%-15% of the total purchase price.

A completion date is also normally agreed at this point.

Step 9. Completion

On completion day, you will need to vacate your property by around 12-1pm. Your solicitor will also notify us both when your buyer's funds have been transfered for the remaining balance into their bank account,  and it is OK to hand over the keys to your buyer.

Your solicitor will have plenty of things to tie up, such as transfer the title deeds to your buyer's solicitor to register, settle any outstanding mortages where applicable, and if you are using any of the funds to buy another property, transfer payment to that vendor's solicitor.

Congratulations, you have now successfully sold your home.
