How Does Our Sales Offering Differ?
This service was designed for those who would prefer to pay a lower fee up front while also having the flexibility to pick and choose which aspects of estate agency you would like us to deliver. It is also ideal for the tech savvy as you can register online and monitor your sales progress 24/7 though our website meaning there is no need to have to have anxious moments wondering what is going on with your sale!
However! We still have our office situated in the heart of Witham which you can come into and we are not a call centre of “estate agents” where you talk to someone different every time! You will have an assigned agent who will work with you every step of the way! For those who want a more modern, online experience, we have a cloud based software system where you can moitor your sale every step of the way!
Vendor Information Pack
Home attendance and Market Appraisal
The first step on your path way to selling your home is to invite us to your home where we can sit down and discuss what you want to achieve, and we can tell you, open and honestly, what we think you should expect. We will not look to promise you the impossible in order to gain your instruction – to us, we would rather provide you with evidence of what has sold in order to ensure we achieve our goal of selling your property
(Ideally) while we are at your property we can take all the details needed to advertise your property efficiently and market it to the right audience. We will take room measurements and list important features throughout the property in order to accurately reflect how your property would suit its next owner.
Advertising on Rightmove & Zoopla
The big two! We advertise on both portals in order to maximise the chance of finding the right person to buy your property! With On The Market a distant third, we decided not to compromise on exposure to save money but rather offer you the best possible deal we can in terms of how many people will see your property online.
24/7 Online Property Account to Monitor Listing
You can now register and login onto our new online platform via our website at www.witlet.co.uk. From here you can monitor all aspects from conversation had between ourselves and solicitors to checking the chain on your transaction!
Viewings Arranged and Feedback Gained Post Viewing
Once you have the property online and in our office window, the enquiries should now start to roll in! This can be quite time consuming and its handy to have an agent act like your personal assistant and work to ensure you get the appointments in the diary and you have a chance to sell!
Some people are very uncomfortable when it comes to selling. It can lead to awkwardness or sometimes it can hinder the sale of your home. That’s why we offer assisted viewings with one of our salesmen. Payable on a case by case basis up front (discount available when paying for a block of 4) you can pick and choose when you want someone there and when you don’t
This is when things get interesting and you need to hold your nerve! Our experienced agents can guide you through this potential minefield and achieve the best possible deal.
Offer accepted but who are these people? We vet the buyers to ensure they are who the say they are and they have the funds to be able to satisfactorily complete the transaction!
Sales Progression & Advice
This is the hard graft aspect of selling your property! It can also be hugely complicated and, at time, quite hair raising to say the least! Having an experienced agent handle this can often be absolutely life saving and knowing when to hold and concede is vital.
For Sale Board
A hugely important tool when it comes to advertising your home. While we all understand how the industry has moved so far forward online, having a board to advertise also shows people on the ground that the property is available. You wouldn’t sell a car without putting a For Sale sign on it would you?
Making your property stand out from the millions of online advert is tough! One huge selling point is photography. Most people look at pictures before reading text so if we can make the best possible first impression, it will only bode well with the potential sale. As the saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words”
Energy Performance Certificate
Since 2008, it has been a legal requirement for properties that are placed on the market to sell (and let) have a valid EPC. We will check on the national database and if there is none, we can ask our qualified assessors to attend and produce an EPC on your behalf.
An incredibly useful tool to give potential buyers and idea of how the property is laid out. In conjunction with a good set of photo’s, this will maximised the potential of your online advert.
