Where will my property be marketed?

98% of prospective buyers search for properties online. Your property advert will therefore be published on the UK’s biggest property portals Zoopla and Primelocation. We will also feature your property on our website and social media channels as well as running targeted adverts online. This means that we will likely generate more interest and increase competition on price. We will also help you negotiate the best-selling price when offers come in, and ultimately, you will have the final decision on whether you would like to accept a buyer’s offer.

Why do valuations vary between agents?

The market will ultimately determine what the buyer is prepared to pay for your property. Our job is to help ensure your property is valued accurately. Our full focus is to understand the local market values and to back up their valuation with real evidence. It’s understandably tempting to instruct the agent who gives the highest valuation, however recent statistics show that the original asking price for a third of properties on the market had to be reduced by 10-15% on average before selling. Simply put, this approach leads to lower offers. 

We are equipped with the latest and most effective valuation tools and do in-depth market research before we visit you to ensure the most accurate, evidence-based valuations will be provided. Should you disagree with our valuation, or have been persuaded by another agent that it should be higher, then we can test the market for you, however in all cases we will do our utmost to sell at the highest price possible.

What is your incentive to sell my property?

95% of our instructions come from recommendations from our previous clients. It’s therefore essential for us to continue to impress our clients for Wellingtons to continue. Additionally, we are motivated to beat the high street agents to help revolutionise and change the industry for the better. We will regularly ask for feedback, enabling us to continually improve our services. 

Is it possible for Wellingtons to sell my property with having a valuation?

Yes, if perhaps you already have an asking price in mind that you would like to aim for, you can instruct us at any time. We can immediately get to work on preparing your property for an agreed market launch date.

How long does it take for you to visit my property?

It depends on availability however it’s typically within three days of your booking.

What if my property is already on the market with another agent?

You will need to check your notice period with them. If you are outside your fixed term contract period, then you should be able to move easily. You could also opt for a multiple agency agreement with your existing agent, however this will likely result in an increase in their fees. It is counter-productive to list your property with two agents as it could mean duplicate adverts appearing on the same property portals and also mean you are required to pay two fees instead of one.

Can I check my advert before it goes live?

Absolutely - we will ensure that your advertisement is approved by you before it goes live on all property portals. We also ensure that the particulars are correct and that images and floorplan are properly displayed.

Which Consumer Protection Scheme are you a member of?

We are members of the Property Redress Scheme (PRS).

Will the agent that values my home be the same agent that carries out my viewings?

Yes, you will have one dedicated contact who will handle all aspects of your sale from instruction right the way through to completion. 

Will you vet prospective buyers?

Absolutely, we obtain key information such as their full name, address, and contact information. We also check their buying status and financial position. We then run our due diligence checks to ensure that what we are told is accurate. Our checks are carried out before conducting viewings and again upon receipt of an offer. Buyers are also continuously monitored throughout their purchase with us.

What is the timeframe for my property to be marketed after the photographer has visited?

We will prepare the particulars and adverts for your property within 48 hours of receiving the professional photography. We will then request approval from you once it's all ready. Once everything is approved, we launch usually within 24 hours.
