When it comes to the valuation and marketing of your property, our experience and local knowledge put us head and shoulders above our competitors.

Selling your property with Durrants, how does it work?

Step 1: Full market appraisal

We have a genuine passion for helping our customers sell their property. When it comes to the valuation and marketing of your property, our experience and local knowledge put us head and shoulders above our competitors. Invite us round to complete a free market valuation of your property. We will guide you through our valuation to ensure that you are happy with our results and are fully aware of the subsequent costs and legal requirements involved. We will then work with you to create a suitable, achievable timeline for putting your house on the market.

Step 2: Instruction to sell

Once you decide to sell with Durrants, we work swiftly to create sales particulars of your property for your approval. We work closely with you to create a professional, desirable, accurate representation of your property that you are happy with. It is at this point that we will start to market your property. Please see our Marketing page for full details.

Step 3: Viewings

Viewings are conducted by our experienced agents and we make sure that all potential buyers have the appropriate property details to go away with and to enable them to keep the property fresh in their mind. We will follow up all your viewers to discuss their feedback and which we will in turn relay to you. We recognise the importance of building a relationship with both our buyers and vendors to enable us to increase viewings and better match buyers with the right property. Our Sales team will provide regular updates on progress, feedback and internet statistics and will advise you on what action, if any, is needed.

Step 4: Negotiating the sale

Upon receipt of an offer we will fully verify any chain and where possible the source of funds of your buyer. We will use our expertise to negotiate on your behalf, to help you achieve the best possible price for your property. We will advise if we feel offers are appropriate based on the market buoyancy at the time.

Step 5: Completing the sale

We recognise that a sale is not complete until contracts have been signed and exchanged. To progress the sales process to that stage, we will maintain regular contact with both parties and communicate timelines accordingly. Our relationship with local solicitors gives us a good advantage in keeping your sale on track. This is why 84% of our sales agreed complete (national average is 66%). Our personal approach to doing business drives us to go the extra mile where necessary and progress the sale to the point of exchanging contracts. A mutually agreeable completion day will be agreed  to be as smooth-running and stress free as possible.
