At Lisa Costa Residential Sales & Lettings our aim is to sell or let your house with the minimum amount of inconvenience at the maximum price and that is exactly what our service is designed to achieve. We’ll help you through the whole selling process, offering you professional, straightforward advice at every stage. It is probably for most the largest single transaction you shall make so let us take the strain.
The Selling and Letting process
If you have not sold or let a house before it can be a daunting process, our aim is to simplify that for you and below we offer a step-by-step guide explaining the various stages and procedures.
The most important part of any sale or let is the valuation, some may give you an opinion, and we’ll provide you with an accurate valuation of your property and advice on an appropriate asking price. Others may over value your property, which leads to its own problems. Our valuations are free and with no obligation.
The same agent will carry out the valuation, create the schedules, measure up your property and take the photographs, so who better than to sell your home.
We shall agree an appropriate marketing strategy with you, offering a range of options tailored to achieve your sale objectives. As a minimum our marketing of your property will include the siting of a For Sale board (although this is not compulsory), the preparation of quality colour sales brochures and the display of your property in our newly refurbished prominent High Street office, in the window and on our website, and other major portals. We would also recommend placing your property within the Thornbury Gazette in our fortnightly section. Once your property is on the market either to sell or let, we’ll continue to deal with the marketing of your property in a proactive manner, contacting you on a regular basis with all developments, such as interest and feedback from the property launch and feedback following viewings. By monitoring the levels of interest we can give ongoing honest advice and support which will lead to finding you the perfect buyer or tenant.
One thing we carry out as standard is 100% accompanied viewings of your property, we take the stress and anxiety away and after all, we are selling the property for you, so why should you have to do the selling! The viewing process is so important; we gather information from buyers and soon have a feel if there is a problem with selling. We can also instruct you with ways to improve the sale of your house to achieve the best price and ways to present for potential buyers.
At Lisa Costa Residential Sales and Lettings we want you to be 100% happy with the service you receive, much of our business is through client recommendation “ word of mouth”, we want you to use our wide range of services again and again, and this is an aim we successfully achieve.
To most people the conveyancing process and how it works is a bit of a mystery, we offer you advice in a friendly, approachable, “plain English way”, whether you’re buying a one bedroom flat or a country mansion. The most important thing is that you are kept up-to-date and you know exactly what is happening and when, therefore communication is utmost.
If you are buying the first stage in the process is to “note your interest”. In effect this means that you will be given the opportunity to make an offer for a property, we shall negotiate for our clients in an open and transparent fashion. We will work hard to achieve the best possible price that the current property market commands, whether that be in sales or lettings.
This is only a brief outline and description of the various processes involved in buying and selling or letting a house. If we have brought an issue to your attention that you want clarified, or we have prompted a question or two, please do not hesitate to contact us, as we would be only too happy to help.
