Step 3: Presenting your property

First impressions count! The presentation of your property is critical to a successful sale. Why not add a fresh coat of paint where it’s needed or declutter rooms to make the room look tidy and appear larger.

Step 4: Marketing your property

Social media is an effective way to find your perfect buyer. When you instruct Park and Bailey to sell your property and everything’s been approved. We will order your for sale board. Our visible boards are the most effective marketing tool as they are working for you 24 hours a day. The worldwide web takes your property to the market via portals like, Zoopla, Prime location, Rightmove and others.

Step 5: Receiving an offer and offer agreed

When an offer is received, we will either verbally notify you or follow this up in writing. We will always check your buyer’s situation on your behalf. When the deal is struck, we will issue the notification of sale of a residential property to both parties’ solicitors. This confirms the sale details, property address, selling price and parties involved. Once all is received your solicitor will arrange the necessary legal work. After this, it’s then time for our sales progression team to take over!

Step 6: Sales progression team

Our specially trained and much praised ‘Sales Progressors’ will keep you regularly updated on your sales process and liaise with your purchaser, the legal representatives, surveyors and mortgage lenders to ensure that your sale is progressed as smoothly and as stress free as possible.
