Undoubtedly the property market is improving – it is arguably at it’s highest peak in many years. However, one of the most prominent contributing factors to this success is the Help to Buy Scheme. The scheme targets young buyers who are trying to get their foot on the property ladder, and usually only applies to new build houses. This means that while the market continues to improve, and house prices rise, it is still proving difficult for those wanting to move, to sell their home. Most first time buyers are choosing new builds to take advantage of the scheme, meaning that existing home owners sometimes need help to sell.
Taking on the task of selling your property alone can be daunting. Organising viewings and putting out advertisements can get pushed to the bottom of the to-do list during the hustle and bustle of every day life, and much of the jargon and necessary paperwork can seem overwhelming and confusing. This is why many home owners are choosing to invest in a team of estate agents, solicitors and conveyancers to assist in selling their property.
But what exactly do they do? Firstly, estate agents. They will take responsibility for sourcing potential buyers – taking care of a lot of the organisational issues which arise when trying to sell your home yourself. Estate agents have years of experience selling properties, so know the best way to market your home and for what price. They can also offer you advice and be there to answer any questions you have regarding the sale.
The conveyancer or solicitor will then take care of all of the complicated yet necessary paperwork such as drawing up contracts, laying out the necessary forms for you to complete and negotiating fees, speeding the process along. They will assist with the transfer of money, as well as ensuring that all documents are completed as accurately as possible, preventing any legal issues further down the road.
One of the biggest factors in slowing down the process of selling a property is communication. There are so many individuals and companies involved – both on the side of the buyer and the seller – that transactions between parties can often hold up proceedings. Which is why using the services of a property team can help. At Wrigley Claydon, we have a property team made up of estate agents and law professionals, so you can find all the help you need in one place. We can offer solid, reliable advice that you can depend on with decades of combined property experience in all fields.
