Guide to Buying
If you have registered with us we will contact you regarding new properties as soon as they become available, by e-mail, post or telephone. You may prefer to browse our website at leisure ,this will feature interior photographs, full property particulars (some have floor plans), and a local map. You can request to view any property either online or by telephoning us on 023 92 864321. After you have viewed we will contact you again to discuss your thoughts and give this feedback to the vendor.
 
  • Decide in general terms what you are looking for and your minimum requirements.
  • The ideal property is rarely available. Consider properties that can be adapted to your requirements.
  • Property purchase is a major expense. Take a builder’s advice about repairs, alterations, inprovements, and extensions.
  • Consider the advantage of an independent surveyor’s report. If you are buying with assistance of a mortgage, then there will be a valuation report which may identify building problems requiring attention.
  • If you decide that you would like to place an offer on a property, we will discuss this with you and the seller. We would need to know what your purchasing position is, for example, do you need to sell a property before purchasing, are you sold subject to contract, if so, what is the chain involved (if any) ,are you an investor or first time buyer, do you need a mortgage? We will then check those details. Once a sale has been agreed we will need your solicitor’s details and we will confirm the sale in writing to all parties.
 
 
Guide to selling
First impressions are all important when selling your property, particularly in difficult market conditions where you may have similar properties for sale near you. One of the most important things you can do to make your property more desirable is to present it in the best way you can.
 
Here are a few suggestions:
 
  • First impressions are important – try to arrange your home to be inviting and uncluttered for viewing purposes.
  • A fresh coat of paint makes walls appear lighter and rooms bigger.
  • Keep your garden tidy and add some colour with seasonal flowers.
  • Try to create a lifestyle statement that will impress visitors.
  • Decide what fixtures and fittings will remain with the property, and any other items you might consider selling to a purchaser.
  • Decide on a solicitor or legal conveyancer.
  • Who holds your deeds? Inform your building society/bank if you have a mortgage- they may hold the deeds.
  • Cash buyers are ideal – yes, there are some around.
  • Buyers who have sold, and keen to move, are in a strong position. Buyers whose properties are on the market ,and not sold, will inevitably create a chain reaction.
 
We will guide you upon offers received, but you should
select a buyer most likely to proceed.
