Estate Agent Fees
Check with your agent how much their fees will be to sell your home and if there are any additional charges.
Can you finance your dream home? Find out how much you can borrow and what their fees are? You may also have early exit fees from your current mortgage. We work with a trusted whole-of-market local company so if you need help just let us know.
In England and Wales sellers must provide an Energy Performance Certificate for their property. If your property doesn’t have one don’t worry we work with a local energy surveyor and can provide one for £80.
To sell your home you need a solicitor or legal conveyancer. We work closely with trusted local conveyancers who can provide you quotes for selling and buying. Let us know if you would like to use their services.
You may need a removal company to help move your belongings to your new home. Costs will vary depending on the amount you need to move and distance.
You normally have to pay stamp duty when buying your new home. The amount depends on your situation and agreed sale price of your new home. Use our Stamp Duty Calculator to check what you may need to pay.
Key things to remember when trying to get the best value for your home
Vendors often ask if they should replace the bathroom or upgrade a kitchen in order to achieve the best price. The answer in nearly all cases is ... no!!
Nearly everyone has their own idea of a dream kitchen or bathroom and has a budget set aside for making their new home their own. Instead of spending thousands upgrading, we have found that simply decluttering helps significantly in achieving a faster sale at a higher price. Decluttering helps to show off the amount of space and removes distractions to focus attention on the pieces of furniture which define the purpose of the room. Even if your taste is not the buyers taste, decluttering will help buyers to imagine themselves living in your house.
Clean & Tidy
Make sure your home is clean and tidy before viewings! Try to think about curb appeal as buyers will often drive by homes before they view. You could repaint the outside, mow lawns and tidy the garden.
Give the inside a fresh touch of painting minimal touches that make it look its best. We can provide expert advice on this and also help with dressing your home for viewings. You will probably fall back in love with your home all over again!
