Thinking about your future move? – How we can help
1st February 2018
Why a chat with us now may help you in the future
Let us help you plan
Are you considering selling your home in the next couple of years? Are you unsure whether to stay in your current home or move house? Would you like to discover how saleable your property is? Would you like some advice on the sales process?
You may be reading this and wondering how an estate agent can possibly help you many months (or even years) prior to you selling your home.
In fact, there are many ways an estate agent can help you…..and not just when you decide to sell! We are not simply here to help you market your property; we have so much more advice and guidance to offer our clients, and we love helping when we can.
We would like to offer you a free, no obligation chat with us at a convenient time… either over the phone, or face to face, whichever you prefer.
Here are just some of the reasons why a chat with us now could help you in the future:
Honest advice on which home improvements increase value
There are so many property-related programmes on TV these days, all giving different advice, tips and money-making ideas. We often watch them! We know! Sometimes it’s difficult to know exactly what to do for the best. This is where we come in. We can visit your home and offer you our honest and reliable advice on which home improvements are worth undertaking (particularly if you are contemplating putting your house on the market in the not too distant future). You may, for example, be torn between whether to improve a kitchen or bathroom, or whether to just sell it as it is. Perhaps you would appreciate some advice on whether a particular new kitchen will help sell your home in the future? Or maybe you are struggling to choose a kitchen to complement the property? We can help you by letting you know whether you will get your money back; a new kitchen doesn’t always guarantee a higher sale value.
We can give you the current value of your home
Would you like to know the current value of your home so you can decide whether to sell or not? We can give you an honest and realistic valuation for today’s market. This valuation may then bring up other questions, for example, you may be wondering if it’s worth re-decorating or doing minor improvements…….we can offer our professional advice so you don’t waste time and money for no financial benefit. This may also help you to decide whether the time is right for you to sell.
How much is it going to cost be to move?
If you are new to selling property, or it’s been a long time since you last sold, you may not be comfortable with the process of selling your home. We can sit down with you and help you to budget all the costs, for example, solicitors, removals, stamp duty and so on, right down to the smaller things you may otherwise overlook. The better informed you are, the smoother the sale is likely to run, and the less stressful the whole process will be. Let us help you plan.
We can explain the whole sale process and advise you on the best course of action for you
You may be wondering what to do first…….should you find somewhere to live before selling your home? Should you sell your house first and go into rented accommodation? Should you sell and buy simultaneously? Everyone’s reasons for moving are different and individual to their circumstances, so there is no hard and fast rule for what is right and wrong.
We will chat with you and ask you some questions which will determine which path is best for you. Our honest advice will help you to move forward with your plans. We understand the way the market works and we know which choices will work best for you and your family.
Reduce your worry and stress
We don’t like to think of people worrying unnecessarily about anything to do with property, especially when we can help.
We are friendly, honest and transparent…… we believe that offering helpful advice is part of our role as your local independent estate agent.
Give us a call or send us an email….. you have nothing to lose.
