As house sales can seem daunting, and many people only go through this process a few times throughout their lives, it is often difficult to know where to start.
Once you’ve made a decision to sell you will require a valuation. At BPK we will give you an honest and realistic valuation that will not only encourage viewings but hopefully lead to multiple offers.
Our job as estate agents is to make sure we market your property at the right price. Our expert valuers carry out hundreds of valuations every year, giving us unrivaled knowledge of property values in your area. We won’t take on properties at unrealistic prices – this way we won’t be distracted from the people who want to sell now.
Many estate agencies encourage you to market your house at a higher rate so that you have room to negotiate. However, particularly in the current market, we would advise against that. Generally speaking, it’s better to price your property at a more realistic level in order to generate some interest, and ultimately a quicker sale. At the valuation stage, our property valuer will discuss comparable properties, market/sale prices and the length of time they were on the market.
This is why we consistently achieve the best possible price for our clients, building a fantastic reputation in the Carlisle.
Choosing an Agent
The best way to choose an agent is based on personal recommendations and word of mouth. Have a look at the for-sale and sold boards around your area. Don’t feel obliged to sell through the same agent you are buying through – it doesn’t necessarily speed things up! Some agencies over-value your property in order to get your business – but that doesn’t necessarily lead to a sale. Do some research yourself as to what price similar properties have gone for.
What we do differently
We want your property to stand out from the crowd: To find the perfect buyer you need to give your property maximum exposure across a wide range of media.
BPK place huge importance on the highest levels of professional standards, marketing your home to its full potential. Digital media is increasingly important, and exposure on our own state of the art responsive website comes as standard, as well as promotion on national portals including Rightmove, Zoopla and Facebook.
We charge no withdrawal fees, no advertising costs and there are no tie-ins with us: This means you have total peace of mind and will pay us nothing until your property has completed.
We will give you viewing feedback within 24 hours: The feedback is a crucial part of selling your property and is used together with local advertising, internet inquiries and phone inquiries to assess what we can do next if the property isn’t selling
Accompanied viewings: Our professional and experienced sales team are at hand to accompany viewings in office hours and at weekends; essential for those clients with busy lifestyles or for properties which are vacant. Accompanied viewings also mean we can use our expertise to help sell your property, answering vital questions from buyers and also encouraging interest and offers at the appointment.
