Guide to Selling

STEP 1.

Get An Accurate Valuation

Find out exactly how much your home is worth, call our sales team on 0207 113 1066 and book an appointment for them to come round, take a look at your property. We can then provide an accurate idea of what your home is worth.

Prices from agents may vary, GLP will happily match a higher valuation however please do chat to our team about the implication this might have in terms of length of time your property is on the market, and how buyers may perceive this.

STEP 2.

Instruct Your Agent

You will normally have two options, sole agency or multiple agency. Sole agency will mean you instruct one agent only, this will normally mean a smaller fee, more personal service, and a tailored marketing campaign to ensure the right information hits the market at the right time.

Multiple agency is when you instruct more than one agent. This may mean a higher fee and the complications of managing more people.

STEP 3.

Get Marketing!

All Agents market in different ways, here at GLP we ensure every property hits the market and portals with professional photos and 3D Video tours within 24 hours of instruction. For a full detailed marketing run down – visit Why Sell With GLP.

STEP 4.

Viewings

Get your property ready for viewings, de clutter and make the right impressions. We have plenty of tips on our Blog page – How To Refresh Your Home!
GLP offer a FREE Pre-Viewing clean prior to viewings as part of our service.
Viewings will take place at your convenience however we advise our sellers to vacate the property when viewings take place to give the buyer comfortable time to look around with zero pressure.

STEP 5.

You’ve Got An Offer

We put over EVERY offer we receive to you both verbally and writing. We will of course advise whether we feel it is an offer you should consider but obviously the final decision is yours. Before we send offers over we will check the buyers ability to proceed and also collect information about their current situation in terms of mortgage/speed to move etc.

STEP 6.

Offer Agreed

Once you receive an offer we will do the following:

You will then agree on dates for the survey on your property and exchange of contracts.

STEP 7.

Exchanging Contracts

The following has to be completed before contracts can be exchanged, your solicitor will be managing this for you:

  • Preliminary enquiries following receipt of draft contract
  • Issues in the Lease
  • Local Search
  • Fixtures & fittings to be included in the sale

Normally 10% of the Sale price is moved across to your solicitors account in order to exchange.

STEP 8.

Completion

This is when the final remainder of the monies is transferred from the buyers solicitors to your solicitors account. Once the monies is cleared your buyers can pick up the keys.

We work closely and can recommend Kiwi Movers (see Sales Services) for all your moving, storage and shipping needs.
