Our Guide To Selling Your Home

Thinking about selling your property? Here’s everything you need to know.

1. Market Appraisal

At Ashtons, we offer a free, no obligation market appraisal of your home. Our experienced property valuers will have an honest discussion with you about your property’s value to help you understand how you will finance your home move. We will advise you on the current market conditions and discuss our market strategy to ensure you achieve the optimum offer on your home within a realistic timeframe.

Should you need advice on mortgages, we work closely with reputable mortgage advisors and would be very happy to put you in touch with them.

At this point, we would also recommend you instruct a solicitor so you can hit the ground running when an offer has been accepted. If you need guidance on instructing a solicitor, we can point you in the right direction.

2. Photography and Marketing

First impressions always count, which is why we use professional photography on all of our properties. Once instructed, our professional, in-house photographers will take a variety of photographs of your home, including drone shots and videos where appropriate to showcase the property’s plot and locality. As well as internal floor plans, we go a step further and draw an illustration of the plot to help buyers understand what is on offer for the marketing price.

Once the property particulars and photographs have been approved by the owner, the property will be launched across all marketing portals. These portals include Rightmove, Zoopla, On The Market, and Prime Location. The property will also be available to view on our website, across our social media platforms and will also be featured across our offices in York city centre and Acomb – both in high footfall areas.

3. Viewings and Feedback

Unless requested otherwise, our property professionals will carry out accompanied viewings of your home. Highly experienced and knowledgeable, our team will showcase your property in the best light and will be sure to highlight all the benefits of not only the property, but also the area.

It is important for you to be kept in the loop, so after each appointment our team will give you a call to feedback how the viewing went.

4. Offers

From start to finish, you will be looked after by one of our highly experienced property managers, with the support from your property valuer. Your point of contact will keep you updated with the property’s performance, interest levels, and offers, with the aim to get the best possible price for your property from the right buyer that fits your requirements and timescale.

5. Sales Progression

Once a sale has been agreed, the same property manager will keep you updated of all developments and will be proactive in keeping the chain moving.

6. Exchange Of Contracts & Completion

Once the solicitors are satisfied that all enquiries have been answered, the sale will exchange contracts with completion set for either the same day or a later date. When the sale has completed, we will be able to release the keys to your buyer.
