Selling your home can be stressful, thus, it is quite important to choose an agent you can trust who will make this process as smooth as possible. We, at Metropole Properties, aim to eliminate the stress and make the experience as easy as possible.
Whether you intent to buy or sell, you can contact Metropole Properties for advice. In the meantime, here are a few guidelines which we hope will assist:
Firstly, if you are selling, you will require a valuation. At Metropole Properties we can offer you a free, no obligation factual and accurate appraisal of the current market value of your home. Our experienced valuers will provide you with a valuation based not only on their in depth knowledge of the location and surrounding areas, but also utilising our extensive database of recent properties sold.
Instructing Us/ Preparing the Particulars
Having received your valuation and provided that you instruct us, we will then proceed to prepare the sales particulars of your property. Bearing in mind the importance of presentation, we will ensure that your sales details highlight the vitally important aspects of your property and ensure that your home is shown to its best possible advantage with the aid of full colour photographs and, if required, we can also set up a computerised 360 degree/virtual tour to feature on our website.
Once you have seen and approved the particulars of your property, you will then be in a position to receive prospective buyers. Appointments to view your property are made by Metropole Properties and accompanied viewing will be arranged to show prospective buyers the property and the surrounding area.
