FAQ’ s for Sellers
Do I have to have a For Sale board?
We do not insist on having a For Sale board outside the property but would strongly recommend you having one, they are a 24 hour advertisement and greatly help potential buyers to find your property. Our fees include the erection of one of our distinctive boards and you can even choose which colour you’d prefer. We offer boards in Steel Grey, Crisp White or Bay Blue.
How much are your fees?
Our fees will depend on the type and price of the property being sold as well as the market conditions and seller’s motivation. We have options starting from £0 (yes, that’s free!) and will be very happy to discuss our fee structure when we visit you to provide our valuation.
Are you a member of an Ombudsman scheme?
We are members of the Property Ombudsman Scheme and are therefore regulated by them, giving you peace of mind.
What area do you cover?
We specialise in properties in the Torbay area and the wider South Devon area, which is serviced from our 2 offices in Torquay. We are also part of the Relocation Agent Network so have an association with over 600 independent offices nationwide and can therefore assist you with your move no matter where you are moving to or from.
Where will you advertise my property?
We advertise on Rightmove, Zoopla & Prime Location amongst many other websites as well as in the Herald Express newspaper and will market your property from both our Wellswood & Town Centre offices.
How long will it take to sell my property?
It is impossible for anyone to be 100% sure how long each property will take to sell as there are many factors that have to be taken into account, such as the pricing, the market conditions and your own motivation to sell. We aim to agree a sale on most properties within the first 4 weeks of marketing, assuming that all aspects are favourable, but on occasion it can take longer to achieve the desired result so we would suggest having a 16 week timescale in mind. If it does take longer we can extend the initial contract accordingly.
Do you accompany all viewings?
Wherever possible we will accompany all viewings of your property, leaving you free to concentrate on the search for your next property. Most viewers relax more when the sellers are not at the first viewing and especially when any children and pets have been taken out during the viewing. On the rare occasion where our diary does not allow us to accompany we will offer you the opportunity of conducting the viewing yourself or alternatively we will try to reschedule it when we are able to conduct it.
