Selling Guide

Traditionally residential property is sold by private treaty. The estate agent will establish a guide price, advertise the property, negotiates offers, agrees a price with you and then manages the progress through to completion. Below is a guide to demonstrate what you can expect to receive when inviting Autograph Estate Agents to undertake a market appraisal of your home.

The Process

  1.  A member of our team will come and appraise your property. They will consider your property’s size, layout, condition, location, strong and weak points and then suggest a marketing plan to advise you on the best approach for the sale.
  2. An instruction is given to Autograph Estate Agents and an agreement is drawn up between each party.
  3.  Photographs are then to be taken and a floor plan is constructed.
  4.  The sales particulars are created.
  5.  Marketing your property begins through extensive advertising online and in print form. To include online sites Rightmove, Zoopla, Primelocation and then regional newspapers and magazines.
  6.  The property particulars are emailed, posted to our database of buyers while also actively contacting buyers by telephone.
  7.  Enquiries arrive and viewings are arranged. These can be accompanied or unaccompanied. But the norm is for us to manage the viewing for you.
  8.  Offers are received, negotiated and discussed with you until an agreed price is reached.
  9.  Each party instructs their solicitors.
  10.  The solicitors begin the paperwork and raise any queries, this progresses to exchange of contracts and a completion date is agreed.
  11.  Keys are handed over
