Selling your property
The following is a step by step guide to the process of selling your property..
Book a valuation
Our local knowledge is unrivalled. We will visit you at your property and provide you with details of similar properties sold in your area as well as other properties currently on the market. We can even provide you with information on who is currently on our database looking for a property like yours. We will explain the sale process and discuss the various options for marketing your property. If you agree to instruct us to sell your property, we will then agree on a price to market your property and book a time for our professional photographer to visit you.
To request a free valuation of your property you can either:
Call us on – 020 8556 7533
Complete a valuation request form.
If you have already decided to instruct Next Home Limited to market your property please confirm this on the valuation form. This way we can combine the valuation and photography visit to your property and get your property on the market even quicker.
Photography and Floor plans
Once confirmation of your instruction has been received, our in house photographer will process your property. From just one visit, they will be able to take time and effort to present your property in the best possible light and place it in the appropriate media quickly, professionally and efficiently.
Next Home Ltd will produce floor plans, 360 tours (properties over 300k), colour photographs, location maps and a printable brochure for every property.
A Solicitor will be required to handle the legal paperwork involved in transferring ownership of your property to the new buyer (conveyance). It is advisable to instruct your Solicitor at the same time as putting your property on the market, to allow for collection of the necessary documentation.
We can recommend a company called J E Baring & Co who can handle all the necessary legal work and will provide you with a personal moving consultant who will keep you advised throughout the process.
On the Market
When you instruct Next Home Ltd to sell your property you automatically benefit from our unrivalled, comprehensive package of marketing services. These are designed to achieve maximum exposure for your property in order to obtain the best price quickly and efficiently.
Highly concentrated marketing
We are dedicated to presenting every single property at its very best, regardless of price. We use a wide range of media including local publications and automatic e-mail updates. We also upload our properties to the leading property portals such as Zoopla, Findaproperty and Property Finder.
Registered buyers to your door
When selling your home the key task for your estate agent is to tell as many people about your property, as quickly as possible.
As well as our sustained advertising and comprehensive website, Next Home Ltd has invested heavily in providing our database of buyers immediate SMS and e-mail alerts about new properties that suite their chosen criteria, as soon as they are listed and processed by our photographers.
As soon as you put your property on the market with us, our full integrated IT system seeks out suitable buyers and provides them with details about your property. As a result your property receives vast numbers of interested buyers usually within 48 hours of bring listed.
Longer opening hours
We are open at times to suit our clients, convenient for viewing after work and at weekends, we will make ourselves available at a time to suite you.
No sale, no fee
Up until the time that we exchange contracts on the sale of your property, you will incur no fees what so ever.
Viewings can be conducted by appointment between 9:30am – 5:30pm Monday to Friday and 9:30am – 2:30pm on Saturdays. If you are living in the property we will contact you to arrange a suitable time. If the property is vacant we can either collect the keys from the concierge if your property is in a managed development or we can hold keys for the property. You will be able to login to the member’s area of our website to view the feedback from our viewings and the number of people that are viewing your property online.
Receiving an offer
As soon as an offer is received we will notify you both verbally and in writing. You will also be able to see the history of offers on your property in the members area of our website.
Agreeing to sell
Once a price has been agreed by you it is important that the following details are agreed:
Date for exchange of contracts.
Date for completion.
Details of any extras included or excluded from the purchase.
We will advise you and negotiate on your behalf throughout this process, keeping you informed every step of the way.
Drafting contract and supporting paperwork
Once the transaction is agreed, your Solicitor will send out a draft contract to the purchaser’s Solicitor who in turn carriers out preliminary enquiries, and orders land registries search. They will also organise all the supporting paperwork (Where applicable) i.e: title deeds, copy of the lease, fixtures and fittings list, sellers questionnaire, planning consent, guarantees, copy of building regulations and share of freehold certificate.
