Selling Guide

It's likely to be your most valuable asset, so don't settle for anything but the very best

What you expect

This is the place you have poured your time, money and effort into. It's your home and you probably feel very attached to it. But, for whatever reason, it's time to move on.

Some things are a given when you're selling. You want the minimum hassle and inconvenience, a quick sale and the best possible price. But what about adding an agent that really thinks about the detail to that list, too? An agent who is immersed in the local area and totally gets what the buyers want and need? An agent who can walk into your home and recognise instantaneously which little things will make the world of difference to the sale.

This is where Ideal Properties come into their own.

Selling or letting can be a complicated and frustrating process - it's just the way things are when you're dealing with lots of people and their most valuable asset. We'll be there with you from start to finish, from managing viewings to sorting out complicated chains, to ensuring all the referencing is undertaken and overseen.

Services

Property Valuations

Online valuations provide an estimate of how much your house is worth, based on average property prices in your area. But these are based on the assumption that your home is typical of those in the area. We therefore always recommend that an estate agent visit your property to discuss how to market your property to the best effect given your circumstances, the timeframes you are working to and the sale price you hope to achieve.

Quality Marketing

Our unique multi-channel approach to marketing your property is designed to showcase it in a way that entices potential tenants to enquire about the property. We have a team of local experts who work with you to secure the very best applicants, paying the maximum price for your property, all within a timeframe that suits your needs.

Property Management

We understand that sometimes it can be extremely stressful and time consuming when managing the day to day affairs of your rental property. This is why we have employed decades of knowledge and experience to develop a streamlined model which ensures that things run as smoothly as possible with the minimum amount of stress for you, our client. We pride ourselves on our work ethic and the commitment we dedicate to our clients, and stride to exceed your expectations every time..

Financial Advice

At Ideal Properties we work closely with reputable financial advisers who would be more than pleased to compare the latest mortgage deals and devise a mortgage which is tailored to your individual sales situation. The financial advice that they would provide you with would be totally impartial. They also understand and appreciate the time restraints involved with the purchase of a property, and work to ensure that a product is recommended within a timely manner.
