The Sale Process

  1. Valuation /Market Appraisal

When you instruct Polecat Properties to sell your property we will arrange a convenient time to come to your property in order to carry out a valuation. We will look over the entire property and may ask you some questions concerning the property. If the property is leasehold we will need to know some information regarding the lease length and about any regular payments you make to the landlord.

  1. Marketing

The property details will be prepared. We will ask you to confirm you are happy with these we will begin to market your property in our window, on our website, on the Zoopla Property Portal, by using social media where applicable and by using a traditional ‘For Sale’ board.

  1. Viewings

As the seller all you’ll have to do is make sure the property is looking its best inside and out before any viewing. Polecat Properties will look after the rest. All viewings will be at a mutually agreed time between you and the buyer and we will arrange this and conduct the viewings. We will provide feedback and the buyers’ comments as quickly as possible after the viewing.

If it suits you we are happy to host a block viewing day. These can be very successful and great way to sell in a day!

  1. Offers

The key to any negotiation is knowing what you’ll accept and what you’ll  turn down. We can work with you to identify what price is acceptable and then handle all negotiations on your behalf, using our experience to get the best offer possible. Along with the price, factors to consider include the buyers position, are they a first time buyer, where they are in their chain and whether they fit in with your timeframe to sell. Taking all of this into consideration enables you to make an informed clear headed, sensible choice on whether to accept or not. Remember your agent is there to act for you.

  1. Through to exchange of contracts and completion

You may have sold a property before and have been through the process or this could be your first sale with or without an onward purchase. Whatever your situation is, Polecat Properties will be by your side to guide you through the process, answer any questions you have and to keep you updated along the way.

We can assist with the initial paperwork from your legal representative and provide you with a step by step guide of the key stages.

Polecat Properties ethos is simply to deliver you a property sales service as we would expect to receive, at a reasonable price.
