Selling With Rettie
Stage 1: Appraisal
If you are thinking of selling your property, we’ll be very happy to visit and give you a report on market conditions, as well as an initial no-obligation appraisal of your home. Should you decide to sell with us, our final assessment of your property will be made in conjunction with the Single Survey and Valuation that will be carried out as part of your Home Report (see Stage 2).
Stage 2: Home Report
You have to provide a Home Report to show anyone who is genuinely interested in buying your property; this is a legal requirement. A Home Report has three compulsory features: A Single Survey and Valuation, an Energy Report, and a Property Questionnaire.
We can advise you on the best platforms or firms to use to create your Home Report. Alternatively, we can arrange for a Home Report to be carried out and produced on your behalf.
Stage 3: Preparation
We will give you honest, well-informed advice on the best way to sell your property and we will create a bespoke marketing strategy for you. We will then prepare the material that will be used to market your property. This step involves the commissioning of high-quality photography of your home and the production of floorplans. You’ll be able to choose from a number of proven brochure styles. There is also the opportunity to have a video of your property made. Your property will be placed on our website, which attracts in excess of 190,000 visits a month and is linked to key property portals such as Rightmove, OnTheMarket, and www.thelondonoffice.co.uk.
Stage 4: Launch
When your property is launched to market, a For Sale board will go up and viewings will start. If you are unable to attend, a member of staff will conduct viewings on your behalf. Our database contains the details of over 8,000 active buyers. We will e-mail all relevant buyers with details of your property. We can send out information through our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts. We can also advertise your property at competitive rates in national newspapers and magazines such as The Times, The Scotsman, and The Herald.
Stage 5: Reporting & Communication
We are committed to transparency in our service delivery and will keep in touch at every stage of the selling process. You will receive regular reports from your selling agent. These will include feedback from viewings and details of the follow-up contacts we make with potential buyers.
Stage 6: Negotiations
Our experienced team will conduct negotiations on your behalf. We will use our expertise to meet your objectives for the sale and will liaise closely with you to agree a strategy to get you the very best deal. We will keep you informed and up-to-date with every new development during the negotiation process. You’ll be able to call your selling agent at any time to discuss how things are going.
Stage 7: Conveyances, Missives & Completion
During the final stage of the process we will be in contact with your solicitor to help facilitate the conclusion of your property sale. We will remain actively involved all the way through to the handover stage to help make the entire process as smooth as possible for you.
