What happens when you ask Shaun to appraise your property for sale.
Shaun will make an appointment to come and meet you at your property as you and your property are unique and he needs to appreciate its finer points and find benchmarks to assess it against other properties to give you the information to make the best possible decisions.
Shaun will in most instances then put together an appraisal document with his assessment of where your property sits in the market and recommendations for a marketing campaign and the best possible method of sale, taking into consideration the time frame you would like to work to and the state of the market, so that you achieve the best possible price. Careful planning at this stage is the key to a successful sale
Shaun will explain his findings and recommendations with you.
Going on the Market
A listing contract will be drawn up with all the relevant details for both parties to sign. Once your property is listed and you have made the commitment to sell, quite often there is a gap between this date and when you actually see things happening. Behind the scenes Shaun and his team will be busy getting everything in place to set up the marketing of your property.
If we are holding open homes, we will contact you well in advance to organise them to tie in with the advertising, these are usually between ½ an hour and an hour.
For individual viewings we always try to give at least 24 hours notice, to enable you to have time to prepare your property.
We never leave you wondering, we call you as soon as we have any feedback from potential purchasers and provide fortnightly feedback letters that summarise the activity on your property.
