SELLING YOUR PROPERTY WITH VEEZED RESIDENTIAL
Every property is different and we are committed to advising you honestly on the value of your home, the best way to present it for selling, the costs involved, how we propose to market your property and how we can help you every step of the way.
We offer you a no obligation expert market appraisal on the value of your property. Once you have decided to use VeeZed Residential, our Sales team will be on hand to guide you through the process.
We recommend the property is clean, tidy and clutter free with the source of any bad odours removed. Remember taste in decor is subjective and others may not appreciate your style. A small investment in redecorating can lead to a big return when it comes to selling your property. Using neutral colours and providing a blank canvas for buyers is the best way to help them visualise their furniture in the property. If you are not able to do this, then decluttering, spring cleaning and touching up any obvious stains/cracks on walls will still help enormously and is absolutely essential before any photographs can be taken.
Try and see your home through a buyer’s eyes – the first thing they will see is the photographs of your home on the internet so these need to be as appealing as possible. The appeal (or lack or appeal) of your home in the photos can mean a potential buyer will, within a few seconds, decide whether they want to view your home.
Kerb appeal must also not be underestimated. Some people may come to view the property and drive off as soon as they arrive, based on the exterior appearance! Ensure the front of the property, drive and garden (if applicable) are all clean and tidy, and the front door, step, and front windows are clean.
VeeZed Residential will only expect any fees when we introduce a buyer to your property which goes through to completion.
- Sole Agency – 1% + VAT
- Multiple Agency – 1.2% + VAT
Where the Agent acts on your behalf as the Sole Agent whereby no other agents can be instructed on the property.
Multiple Agency means that the seller can instruct several agents at the same time.
We will ask your permission to erect a For Sale board at the property to assist in the marketing of the Property.
Yes. We will inform you of all interested buyers and, in writing, of any offers that we receive, whilst also acting in your best interest to achieve the best possible price. We will give you as much information about the buyer’s position such as if they have a property to sell, whether they have sold but are in a chain etc, and what their likely timescale is.
Once you have accepted an offer, we will check the buyer’s ability to proceed on your behalf. You will need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor who will draw up a draft contract and will send this to your buyer’s solicitor. VeeZed can provide you with details of professional and reliable solicitors if required, please call us on 020 3794 6995. Your buyer may want to arrange a survey at this point.
Once the solicitors are satisfied with the contract, and the buyer’s deposit and mortgage (if applicable) are in place, you will be able to agree on a completion date and exchange contracts.
At this point, you’re legally obliged to sell the property to your chosen buyer and they’re obliged to proceed with the purchase.
On completion day, you will need confirmation from your solicitor that the monies from the buyer have been received; at this point, you will have sold your property. You will need to take meter readings and vacate your property ready for the buyers to move in.
The costs involved in selling your property consist of:
Commission fees become payable once your property is sold and contracts are signed. VeeZed commission is 1% plus VAT of the sale price and will be agreed between you and VeeZed prior to marketing your property.
Energy Performance Certificate
It is a legal requirement to have ordered an EPC before marketing can start. VeeZed can arrange this for you, please call for more information or visit the landlords section for the price.
Legal fees for the conveyancing process
These vary depending on the solicitor you choose. We can recommend a suitable solicitor, please ask.
Capital Gains tax is a tax on the profit from the sale of a property or investment. If the property is your main home and you satisfy the stated requirements you will not need to pay any tax. Please contact VeeZed for more information.
This is the duty levied by the government on the legal recognition of certain documents, such as the purchase of a property. Only the buyer has to pay stamp duty but if you are buying another property you will need to take account of it. There are currently 5 bands of stamp duty and you can see the current charges on www.gov.uk – type stamp duty in the search box.
These would have been given to your solicitor when you purchased your property and will be held by your bank or building society (if you have a mortgage). They are proof of ownership of your property. Your solicitor will obtain them and forward a copy to the buyer’s solicitor.
We can conduct the viewing on the vendors’ behalf, making the whole process more convenient for the property owner, if they are busy working or do not wish to be involved in the viewings. We establish the buyer’s requirements early in the process so that we know the unique features to focus on when appealing to their desires. Buyers tend to be more at ease with estate agents and will give immediate and honest feedback about the property. We have over eight years experience selling across Hatch End, Pinner, and the surrounding areas and have the knowledge to overcome any objections the buyer might have.
It varies but a rough guide is that it could take 12 weeks. If there are a number of parties involved in the chain then it may take longer. The chain will only progress at the pace of the slowest link. VeeZed is a trusted and honest estate agent that will keep the transaction progressing at a steady pace so that the whole process runs as smooth as possible.
