Residential Sales

At the forefront of Birmingham’s luxury housing sales market since 1998, we have developed a brand that signifies the very best in personal service for vendors, buyers and developers.

With over twenty years’ expert knowledge of local residential property values, we pride ourselves supplying accurate market sales appraisals that achieve the very best possible price for a vendor in the shortest possible time.

We can demonstrate to our clients that they are instructing an agent with a proven sales track record who is working for them to achieve the maximum number of viewings and the highest available offers.

Presentation of your home

First impressions do count, and the first presentation of your home is key to helping us sell your property faster and at a price that meets your expectations.

Take note of the decorative condition of your property both inside and out and the presentation of any outside spaces (gardens, balconies, driveways etc.). Spending money on decoration, repairs and professional cleaning may not be top of your to-do list when you are considering a move but remember that the first impression your property gives to a prospective buyer may be the key to achieving a speedy sale for the price you desire.

Remember that we will want to take photographs for letting web listings, Rightmove, OnTheMarket and our own property website. The impression the photographs give do have a bearing on the number of enquiries you will receive for viewings, so make sure the property is presented in its very best light before any photographs are taken.

We will be happy to talk about the presentation of your property when we attend to prepare details, and we will make you aware of any concerns we have so that they can be addressed before viewings commence.

A well-presented home instils invaluable confidence in both the Vendor and the agent when prospective purchasers are viewing the property. In turn, it helps the prospective buyer to imagine their home.

The paperwork

 

Consider beforehand if you have the necessary paperwork to assist the purchaser and solicitors.

This includes such items as planning permissions, plans, copy lease’s, building regulation approvals, completion certificates, fensa certificate for glazing, gas and electrical certificates, guarantees for insulation or damp proofing , contact details for management enquiries from managing agents and any indemnity insurance policies in place when you bought the property. Supplying the correct paperwork at the outset will help ensure a smooth sales progression service reach a satisfactory sale completion in a reasonable time.

It is a legal requirement that you have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) before your property can be marketed (EPC has a 10 year lifespan). Energy Performance Certificates were introduced in 2007 to give prospective buyers (and tenants) a guide to the energy proficiency of a property and to focus on areas for improving the energy rating. We will be happy to assist in recommending an Independent energy assessor.

Peace of Mind

We place a strong emphasis on demonstrating to our vendors and purchasers that we conduct ourselves in accordance with the latest government legislation and that we adhere to professional codes and standards of practice through the memberships we have.
