Choosing the right agent to sell your property is crucial to your successful sale. Here at Fairview, our expert knowledge of the local and national property markets ensures our clients benefit from accurate market information and advice, to help maximize their properties potential.
With our extensive market knowledge and experience, we make sure our vendors receive realistic and fact based property valuations. Using accurate market data along with on-site appraisals, our valuers advise sellers of achievable marketable values, within their desired timescale.
Our aim is to sell your property within your chosen timescale at the price you wish to achieve.
Plus our market valuations are 100% FREE and without obligation.
The average vendor may not have moved home for some time so we understand that the processes and legislation may have changed dramatically since the last time you moved home. Therefore we make every effort to keep you informed with helpful advice throughout the sales process.
You may not have needed to supply an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) last time you moved so we can help you organise one and our financial advisers can offer impartial advice on your next steps.
We can also help you prepare for marketing with tips on how to make your property even more desirable to buyers.
We believe there is a legal obligation for estate agents and valuers to consider all methods of sale and to advise the seller of the best option to suit their requirements. The Estate Agents Act 1979 confirms that valuers must advise clients on the best method of sale to meet their needs. Agents who consider all methods of sale will comply with the law and demonstrate their professionalism.
There are generally three methods of sale that also have sub-methods (conditional and non conditional auction sales for example). They are - Private Treaty, Tender and Auction. Currently, private treaty accounts for the majority of all property transactions in the UK.
There are also different types of sellers -
Private individuals, trustees, executors, lendors in possession, builders, developers, orders of court, public bodies, local authorities and charities.
Valuers should be aware of the different needs of these and all sellers.
Too many agents only consider private treaty without considering informal or formal tender, best and final and auction.
For some sellers the clearly laid down time-scales, date of auction and completion dates set at the point of instruction are a distinct advantage. Auction achieves the best price on the day with a binding contract formed on the fall of the gavel. This is particularly suitable when deadlines must be met, for example with estate settlement, relocation for a new job or to stave off repossession.
When a property is sold at auction there can be no question of "favours" to a particular buyer.
