Your aim should be to sell your property at the best possible price in the shortest possible time. Our experts in valuation carry out thousands of valuations every month, giving us intimate and unparalleled knowledge of property values in your area.
The successful sale of your property can be reliant on the instruction of an efficient and experienced solicitor. It is a good idea to do some research and make a decision before you put your property on the market as this will help to avoid delays. Instruct a solicitor at the same time as you put your property on the market. Your solicitor can then apply for the title deeds at an early stage, avoiding delays when we receive an offer.
First impressions are vital to somebody who is looking to buy a new home, consider completing unfinished projects or addressing any DIY jobs you have been meaning to get done, add a fresh coat of paint where necessary and try to declutter to make rooms appear larger.
To find your perfect buyer you need to give your property maximum exposure across a wide range of media. When you instruct SunnyBay to sell your property you will automatically benefit from our comprehensive marketing package, including: exposure on our website, full colour property details, email and SMS alerts and PR.
Accompanied viewings also mean we can use our expertise to help sell your property.
As soon as a prospective buyer has made an offer we will let you know verbally and in writing. Sometimes there may be a process of price negotiation this can be difficult but, by working with SunnyBay, you will benefit from our expertise in the area. Any special conditions of the offer will also be stated in writing and we will check the buyer's ability to proceed before you decide whether to accept the offer. The offer will be subject to contract being signed and there are no legal obligations on either side until this is done.
Once the offer is accepted the seller is responsible for drawing up a legal contract to transfer ownership.
The contract contains details about:
Once an offer has been accepted you will need to decide whether you wish to keep the property on the market until exchange of contracts. We will then contact your solicitor, the buyer and the buyers solicitor and confirm the details of the sale.
Exchange of contracts occurs when the following have been confirmed and agreed:
The agreement to sell and buy is legally binding once this happens. Usually neither party can pull out without paying compensation.
Once the contract has been signed by both parties the deposit (usually 10% of the purchase price) will be telegraphically transferred or paid in the form of a banker's draft by the buyer's solicitor to your solicitor. The completion date is then set by mutual agreement.
Completion is when the residual monies (usually 90%) are transferred from the buyer's solicitor to your solicitor's account.
