Benefit from our experience
Moving home is not something you do every day. Whilst our primary objective is to find you the best buyer for your property, we understand that you may well have concerns along the way, especially if you have not moved for some time. That is why the experienced and approachable team at Hellards are here to guide you through the process. Our honest and upfront approach to selling property has been appreciated by our clients since 1988, with our business having grown through recommendation and repeat business from satisfied clients.
A realistic approach
We take a professional and realistic approach to valuing your property, taking into account the current market conditions as well as using our comprehensive knowledge of recent sales. Our pro-active sales team are expert at promoting the individual benefits of each property, in order to generate maximum interest from the very best buyers. We aim to secure the highest possible price for our clients and to get you moving in a timely and stress-free way. Prior to a sale being agreed, we will make sure your buyer(s) have been financially assessed in order to minimise the risk of an upset during the sale – these thorough checks mean that we have a very low rate of sales that ‘fall through’, compared with the industry average.
Marketing your home
Nowadays, around 90% of enquiries come from the internet, so all of our properties are advertised on the leading websites including Rightmove, Primelocation and Zoopla, as well as our own Hellards website. Property buyers often like to talk to us face-to-face; our office is ideally situated in the heart of the town to attract buyers looking in this area. Properties are featured in our prominent window display, facing onto busy Broad Street, giving them maximum exposure to passers by.
Let us do the hard-work
Many property owners are unsure about showing people around their homes themselves, which is why one of our experienced team will normally accompany prospective buyers; all we need is the key! We will contact you well in advance to book the viewing, arrive early to turn on the lights and be ready to welcome the buyers on their arrival.
Regular contact & a personal service
We appreciate that sellers expect good communication from their estate agent. We will make every effort to provide precise and constructive updates following viewings as well as keeping in touch on a regular basis, so you are kept ‘in the loop’ about progress as it happens.
Offers and agreeing a sale
Once an offer is made, we will check the chain thoroughly, if there is one, and check on a buyer’s ability to proceed with the purchase. We will pass on our thoughts, and guidance, but will take your instructions as to how you wish to proceed. We will always act in your best interests to secure the very best offer possible before recommending that you agree on a sale. Once an offer is accepted, we will send letters to both sets of solicitors and follow the sale through to exchange of contracts and completion on your behalf. During this process you will be kept fully informed every step of the way.
We are happy to offer advise on solicitors, surveyors, mortgage advisors, removal companies and local trades people that might be able to help.
