Seven Smale Steps to Sell your home.

1 An honest market appraisal

Our years of experience within the North Devon area provide us with a wealth of knowledge of the local property market. We provide honest and accurate housing valuations based on comparable evidence and market conditions to establish the value of your home.

2 Putting your home on the market and viewings

At John Smale & Co. we ensure that every property receives equal marketing attention. This takes the form of various advertising routes including local newspaper publications, website search engines and our Mayfair office link.

Viewings will be carried out at your convenience. Our staff will ensure we are adequately familiarised with your property to ensure we are doing the best possible job on your behalf as well as providing applicants with an informative viewing experience.

3 Negotiating offers and agreeing a price

When an offer comes in for your property we will ensure regular contact between you and the potential buyer until a mutual agreement can be found. We always try to get you the best price.

4 Bringing in the solicitors

At this point we would need your solicitor’s details before we can proceed any further, the transaction cannot advance any further until both the buyer’s and seller’s solicitors have been given to the go ahead. We can recommend good local solicitors.

5 Sorting out the finances

At John Smale & Co. we have the benefit of our own in house financial/mortgage advisor, we pride ourselves in giving unbiased honest fully independent advice. Being independent it allows us to work on your behalf.

6 Exchanging contracts

Once the solicitors are satisfied and mortgage offers have been received, it will be time to sign your contract. The deposit money for your new home will need to be available so that the exchanging of contracts can proceed.

7 Completion

After each of the previous stages have been completed its time for the move. After word has been received from the solicitors that full payment has been received then the keys will be released and you will be free to enjoy your new property!

Following completion we like to keep in contact with you and are happy to assist in providing contractors and help in any other way we can.

We like to stay in touch.
