Selling & Marketing

Why chose us to sell your home?

Selling and buying a property is a complexed, expensive and time-consuming process relying heavily on excellent communications, good management and experienced professionals.

Director, Jay Thorne heads up our sales team and offers vast experience having joined the firm in the late 1980’s. Our team strive to offer our client the best service and best advice out there. Sometimes that advice isn’t the easiest to deliver but honesty is crucial in helping our clients to achieve the best price and in the best time scale possible. Our combined years’ experience of selling in the Sidmouth area is hard to rival. We know the streets, schools, local solicitors and the like. All of these connections help in buying, selling and working chains to ensure you sell your property with ease.

Our primary role is to facilitate the sale of your property, providing regular communication, guidance on the presentation of your home and supporting you through the more complicated and stressful stages of the transaction.

We are responsible for the accurate appraisal of your property, taking into account the economic issues affecting the market, determining what is selling successfully and why.

We will also manage the marketing package for your property, including the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), floor plan, photography and brochure. In essence, we will oversee all stages of the transaction from appraisal to marketing, the management of the chain and conveyancing, all the way through to final completion. The estate agent you chose is crucial to the successful sale of your property.

Accompanied Viewings

Whenever possible we endeavour to accompany applicants around your property. Our staff are experienced in the art of showing your property to its best advantage. We prefer to carry out the service on your behalf as we usually obtain honest feedback from the people viewing your home.

The Value of Your Property

Valuing a property correctly is crucial to the successful sale of your home, pitch the price too high and your property may compare unfavourably with others and you may risk losing ideal buyers. Too low and the buyers may question what is wrong with it.

The valuers at Harrison, Lavers & Potbury’s with their experience of the local market will carefully consider the value of your property to ensure that the best price is achieved. It is fully understandable that you will want to achieve the best price for your property and it’s very tempting to ask just that little bit more. Some less scrupulous agents will deliberately overvalue your home to win your business, however this can have less than satisfactory consequences for you.
