10 years ago, the time between selling a house and exchanging contracts, could be as short as 4-5 weeks. Nowadays, sometimes because of restrictive finance and the number of solicitors available, this period can now exceed 10 weeks and require specialist management of the sales progression to achieve the deserved end result. It is therefore important when choosing an agent not only to consider valuation and fees but also to make sure the agent has a specialist team available to manage the sales progression and make selling a property as stress free as possible.
At Holmans we pride ourselves in making sure that all of our clients are kept well informed of how a sale is progressing, liaising with both parties solicitors, surveyors, the local authority, tradesmen and anything else that we are required to do to facilitate a completion of sale.
As many people are now realising there this more to selling a property than just putting it on the internet and the value in selecting the right estate agent in the first instance is paramount.
