WHAT TO DO NEXT
Are you thinking of selling your home?
Do you require a valuation?
Please contact Choice Properties on 620620 for advice or complete the VALUATION FORM.
We will be in contact soon to talk through your requirements.
In the meantime, here are a few guidelines which we hope will assist:
Firstly, if you are selling, you may require a valuation. At Choice Properties we can offer you a free, no obligation, factual and accurate appraisal of the current market value of your home. We will provide you with a valuation based not only on our in depth knowledge of Jersey but also utilising our extensive database of recent properties sold. We are also able to provide written valuations should these be required, for which there will be a small charge.
INSTRUCTION OF THE AGENT/PROPERTY DETAILS
Having received your valuation, and provided that you are satisfied with it, we will then proceed to prepare full sales details of your property. Bearing in mind the importance of presentation, we will ensure that your sales details highlight the vitally important aspects of your property and ensure that your home is shown to its best possible advantage with the aid of full colour photographs and, if required, we can also organise a video to feature on our website.
Once you have seen and approved our particulars of your home, you will then be in a position to receive prospective buyers. Appointments to view your property are made and accompanied viewings arranged.
Your property is now ready to market and we offer the following:
This is updated daily and full colour details of your home are placed on our website within 24 hours of being placed on the market.
The website is the most powerful tool as most people start their house search here.
We also have a video option which can assist to further enhance your property.
In addition to the exposure on our own website, Choice Properties also use the following property websites which will feature your home:
Jersey Evening Post
Jersey Estate Agents' Association
Mayfair Office London
FOR SALES BOARD
This is the most simple and effective marketing tool, available 24 hours a day.
OFFICE AND WINDOW DISPLAY
External and internal photographs will be prominently displayed in our premises in order to optimise exposure to the market place.
Wherever possible, all prospective buyers who register with us are asked to provide email addresses in order to ensure that they are notified of any new properties as soon as possible within 24 hours of receiving your instruction.
We will contact registered prospective buyers as soon as possible after receiving your instruction and your property details will be forwarded to any new registered buyers immediately.
We provide regular prominent advertisement of your property in the following local publications, Jersey Evening Post and Places Magazine to ensure that your home is fully marketed.
We are also able to gain preferential rates for National advertising in: Country Life, Financial Times, Daily Telegraph, Sunday Times, Mail on Sunday, Coast Magazine and Horse & Hound.
UPDATES ON YOUR SALE
At Choice Properties, we pride ourselves on our conscientious sales management. We aim to keep you regularly appraised of your sales process right through to completion and liaise with your purchaser, the legal representatives, surveyors and mortgage lenders in order to ensure that your sale is progressed as smoothly and as stress-free as possible.
Any offers we receive are promptly notified. We will negotiate between you and your prospective applicant in order to achieve the strongest buyer.
We will inform you of the position of the buyers and liaise with you until an accepted offer has been agreed.
We will write to all parties, setting out the terms of the sale. The buyers will instruct a surveyor to conduct a survey of your property (the “agreed sale” is subject to the contract and any survey) and the buyers’ mortgage offer (if required) will also be subject to the results of the survey.
The lawyers acting for both buyer and seller will make contact with each other and carry out their legal work in respect of their client.
An inventory of contents of the items to be included in the sale will be drawn up for the seller to approve. This will be done by the agent, and once agreed forwarded to all parties.
A date of completion will have been agreed between all parties and once all paperwork is signed and in place, the buyers and sellers together with their respective advocates, will attend the Royal Court (for freehold properties) in order to complete the transaction.
