Start to Finish. How it works?
Selling your home is simple if you prepare your property. With this in mind we have compiled all that is involved in the sales process from start to finish, suggesting ways of making life easier for you. Once you have decided to sell your property you must decide which method of sale to use.
Private Treaty | Auction | Advertising | Viewings | Negotiation | Closing
This is the most common method of sale in Ireland. It involves advertising your property at a predetermined price and taking numerous offers from the various interested parties until the highest or most appropriate offer is acceptable. During the negotiations the vendor is contacted at every step of the process informing him/her of each offer. On the completion of the negotiations between the interested parties and the vendor/agent, the property is then "sale agreed". It is at this stage that the agent will require written confirmation from the proposed purchaser of loan approval from their lending institution. Also at this stage the agent will request that the prospective purchaser arrange a valuer and a surveyor to inspect your property. In doing this, the process can be made more efficient.
ADVERTISING YOUR PROPERTY
We'll put all the advertising together and promote your property to attract as many potential buyers as possible. We use signage, brochures, email campaigns, websites, PR and advertising to maximise your properties exposure.
All viewings will be arranged with you in advance. Detailed notes are left after the viewing has finished.
CLOSING YOUR SALE
This is the final stage. Your solicitor, having drawn up and issued contracts to the proposed purchaser's solicitor, will then answer all queries from the purchasers solicitor. Once the proposed purchaser's solicitor is satisfied with all queries, the purchasers sign and return contracts with normally a 10 % non-refundable deposit (process of approximately 2/3 weeks). Once you have also signed and returned (exchanged) contracts, your property is now at the SOLD stage. The agreed closing date is normally adhered to by both parties, however, it is not unusual for the date to be delayed due to finance and other factors.
