Here is an informative guide to selling your property and what happens next…

DEDICATED NEGOTIATOR APPOINTED

We appoint one of our experienced negotiators as your point of contact to deal with all your queries regarding the sale of your home and we will keep you fully updated throughout the course of your sale. Our negotiators are all member of the NAEA and have vast experience of selling homes in an efficient and proactive manner. Let our negotiators deal with everything for you with the knowledge and peace of mind that you have a dedicated representative you can contact within the office.

PREPARE YOUR HOME FOR SALE

We will offer you advice on preparing your property for the market and handy tips when showing a prospective buyer round your home.

INSTRUCT THE HOME REPORT

As part of the estate agency service we would order your Home Report and assist in completing any paperwork required. We will discuss payment and the costs involved in ordering a Home Report. On your behalf we will liaise with local surveyors over the valuation of your property and instruct any specialists if so required. We will follow the progress of your Home Report until published.

Since 2008 the majority of properties in Scotland require a Home Report prior to being placed on the market for sale. The Home Report is carried out by a local chartered surveyor and comprises three sections, namely a Property Questionnaire which the owner completes, an Energy Performance Certificate and the Single Survey. All three sections have to be approved by the owner and thereafter published prior to marketing. At this point the report is available and open to the public domain via the internet and various internet portals which enables a prospective buyer or purchasing Solicitor to request a copy of the report and make and base an offer on the contents contained therein. In some occasions Home Reports are requested prior to viewings taking place.

The home report contains a current market valuation of your property which is used as a guide to assist in the eventual marketing price. Should you require any more information please do not hesitate to contact any of our experienced property staff.

PHOTOGRAPHS & MEASUREMENTS TAKEN

Our Property Valuer will return to your property and take measurements and photographs in order to prepare your brochure and advertise your property on the internet. We use high quality cameras in order to obtain the best photographs possible. We are also able to offer movies of your home which can be added to our website and the ESPC in order to market your home effectively.
