Many estate agents put substantial emphasis on their ability to find a buyer and highlight this as a primary reason to sell through them. In many ways, finding a buyer is not always the hardest part of the process, particularly with our many sophisticated marketing tools. So the issue is not just about selling - it’s about helping you move.
Not all estate agents provide the reassurance homeowners deserve when they decide to sell their home.
On average, 35% of sales arranged in England and Wales fall through prior to exchange of contracts, although our fall–through rate is substantially below the average figures.
The chances of a sale failing to reach exchange of contracts can be considerably reduced if the seller’s agents are as concerned about the whole move in context as they are about the sale in isolation. So often, it is issues relating to linked sales or purchases that can be the cause of problems, be they legal, structural or emotional.
At scottfraser, we co-ordinate the whole process for our clients, including dealing with other professionals such as mortgage brokers, solicitors and surveyors.
From the qualification of the initial offer, through progression of the sale to handing over the keys on completion, we are here to help.
When you speak to one of our property consultants, don’t be surprised to find they are as interested in your onward move as they are in your sale. That’s what good service is all about!
