The 10 Step Guide To Selling Your Home

Our dedicated team are on hand to provide continuous help and advice on selling your home. We take a look at the top 10 things every house seller needs to know.

Appeal to Buyer

Think about what made you buy your home in the first instance? Chances are, that is what is going to appeal to your new buyer. Showcase this in viewings.


Declutter, for optimum price showcase your home to its best potential, over crowed and cluttered rooms can make a property seem smaller than it is.


Check if your property is Freehold or Leasehold. If it is leasehold check how many years are left on the lease. Often properties with 75 years or less on a lease can increase the time it takes to complete.

Management company

If you have a management company looking after the property, for instance areas such as the Westoe Crown Village in South Shields have a management company looking after them, you will need your management pack up to date with no arrears on monthly management fees.

Redemption Penalties

Mortgages often have redemption penalties; you will need to factor this in though it can be easily checked.

Viewing Times

Viewings, do you have the time, we all lead busy lives, if not, consider accompanied viewings where the agent shows people around. Also consider any pets and children.


Mortgage Advice is strongly recommended to establish your purchasing power for any onward moves.

Solicitor at the Ready

You will require a solicitor to do the legal work (conveyancing) using an estate agents recommended solicitor can help quicken the sales process.

Property Deeds

Sort your property deeds along with any building regulations/certificates for any extensions/conversions/building work as your solicitor will need them once your sale has been agreed
