5. Agree the best offer

Let us put our expertise to good use and negotiate the best possible deal for you. We will present all offers to you, letting you select the buyer that is right for you. You are in total control of who you choose to purchase your property.

2. Choose the right company for the job

Selecting the right company to market your property is extremely important and requires very careful consideration. It is important for us to understand exactly what you need from your estate agent and we will take the time to listen to what is important to you and ensure that we deliver the results you expect. We pride ourselves on ensuring our customers receive a high quality, personal service.

6. The legal process

Once you have accepted an offer, we will prepare a Memorandum of Sale which confirms the sale price and any agreed terms/conditions. This is sent to all parties involved and most notably introduces both parties’ solicitors which in turn gets the legal process started. It’s at this stage you can also expect the buyer to carry out surveys, whether it be a home buyers survey or mortgage survey.
Your solicitor then prepares and sends out a draft contract to the buyer's solicitor who then commences the required checks and searches. Unlike some agents, we are not of the view that our hard work stops once the deal is in the solicitors’ hands. We work with all parties throughout the process to manage the deal to exchange and completion, keeping you fully informed every step of the way.

3. Find a solicitor

Finding a good solicitor is extremely important in ensuring the successful sale of your property. It is worth considering which solicitor you will use before putting your property on the market to avoid any delays once an offer is agreed. We have solicitors we can recommend that meet the same high standards of service we expect you to receive at JD Property.

7. Exchange of contracts

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. Upon exchange, there is a legally binding contract between seller and buyer for the sale and purchase of a property.

4. Market your property

We will discuss the best way to market your property and advise on anything which could improve its marketability. We will arrange professional quality pictures, ensuring your property is looking its best. Instructing us will ensure your property receives maximum exposure, being on all major property portals and benefiting from access to our extensive database of thousands of pre-qualified buyers. We will accompany all viewings and our highly trained sales staff will ensure we receive the best possible sale price in the shortest space of time.

8. Completion

On the completion date agreed at exchange, the remaining monies (usually 90%) are transferred between the solicitors and completion takes place. Your solicitor will confirm once completion takes place and the buyer will then be able to collect the keys to their new home.
Congratulations, your property is now sold!
