Selling a property

Planning on selling your home? There's a lot to think about, but ESPC can help make it easier. All you need is ESPC, our local solicitors, experts and free advice.

Selling a property

If you are planning on selling your property there are a lot of things to consider. That’s where ESPC’s property experts can really help. Follow this basic guide to help get you started.

How to sell your home

  1. Speak to an IFA (Independent Financial Adviser) to ensure that you are ready to sell and move up the ladder financially. They can tell you everything that you need to know to get a new mortgage or move your existing mortgage to a new property.
  2. Choose an ESPC solicitor estate agent to handle all aspects of your sale – marketing, organising the Home Report, sales negotiations and the legal requirements. They have unique access to ESPC which can offer unrivalled exposure to the widest audience and our highly desirable marketing package. They will also work with you on setting the price right.
  3. Presentation is everything when it comes to selling your home, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune. A simple freshen up inside and out may be all that is needed to make sure that you property is well presented and tidy for both photographs and for viewings.
  4. Meeting and greeting complete strangers is not always easy, but your ESPC property expert will help with useful viewing hints and tips on how to make every viewing count.
  5. Your solicitor will negotiate the selling price and date of entry on your behalf before drawing up the missives and transferring ownership of the property. They’ll keep you up to date with everything that you need to do at each of these stages.
