Buying a property can be an intimidating and confusing process – knowing where to start can often be difficult but our team of professional and friendly negotiators are here to demystify the process with helpful, practical advice to find you your dream property.
Whether you’re looking to upsize to a home with some land or dreaming of a quaint, cosy cottage – we have a variety of homes available to suit every budget and requirement.
If you’re looking to sell your home in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire or Lincolnshire then one of Richard Watkinson & Partners’ seven regional branches are here to help.
Our team of friendly and professional valuers and negotiators provide:
- An accurate and free market appraisal of your property.
- Advice on the best method of sale.
- High profile brochures.
- A comprehensive marketing campaign
- Local newspaper and property website advertising
- High Street branch coverage.
- Accompanied viewings.
- A detailed sales progression – handling the sales process from offer to completion.
Our valuers are very knowledgeable and experienced about the local market.
The market appraisal usually takes about an hour. The valuer will explain our different fee options which can include everything from advertising to the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
You will be shown samples of our marketing including our brochures, photography and floorplans.
Ready to go to Market?
Once ready to come to the market we would revisit your home to prepare a draft brochure for you to approve along with a large selection of interior and exterior photographs. We would discuss our marketing campaign with you. Quite often our sales staff will pop out as well so they are more familiar with your home when talking to buyers.
Viewings can be accompanied by our staff if you are busy at work or would just rather leave the selling to us. After every viewing we will aim to gather as much feedback for you, good or bad to help with the sale.
For empty properties we can be key holders, visiting the property regularly and checking it is in order. We are happy to organise maintenance and repairs for you if necessary.
Getting an Offer
When we get an offer for your home we will negotiate with you and the buyer to agree a sale and to qualify the purchasing position of the buyer. We will use our negotiation skills to achieve the best price possible and select the most suitable buyer by the fairest means.
Monitoring the Sale
After agreeing a sale we will use our skills to monitor the sale through to the day of completion and the key hand over. On average in the U.K. 1 in 4 sales unfortunately fall through before they reach exchange of contracts but by closely looking after the sale and sorting out any problems that may arise with for example the survey, we are able to reduce this figure considerably saving time and hopefully creating a stress free move.
