Sales Guide

Here at Star Estates & Lettings our devoted property consultants will assist you in achieving the best asking price for your property. By following our simple 4 simple steps, we can ensure the process is as swift and hassle-­free as possible:

Step 1

We strongly advice our clients to let their mortgage provider know in advance of selling their property, in order to find out if there are penalties payable upon redeeming the term loan early. If you’re planning on purchasing another property, this will be a good first step to prompt lenders to start gathering any information they may need for your new purchase.

If you are looking to purchase a new property, it would be a good idea to start to market the property you are selling before purchasing a new home. Losing out on an opportunity due to the fact that you haven’t sold your property first might be heart-­breaking.

Stop 2

Achieving the market price of the property you are looking to sell can be stressful, but our devoted property consultants are there to assist you in achieving the desired asking price. Many agents use online valuation apps to give a quick valuation of your property. However, at Star Estates we have a team of experienced agents who will inspect and assess the property, before providing a detailed, realistic and comprehensive valuation of the property, at no obligation or extra cost.

During the property valuation the following will be discussed:

  1. Your needs, and price you are looking to achieve
  2. Current market situation
  3. Similar properties within the vicinity
  4. Any means by which you could enhance the property value
  5. The marketing strategy going forward
At Star Estates, we are all about adding value: if we believe that some small alterations can be made to achieve the desired price, our specialist team will advise you accordingly.  

Step 3

Your property will then be presented to potential applicants in the best possible way. We advertise throughout London, in the London Property Magazine, newspapers, property portals, and directly through our smartphone app, and office front windows.

Once you are happy with the advertisement, you then need to be provide us with further property details such as Building Regulations Certificates, EPC certificates, service charges, and ground rent payable.

Step 4

The successful sale of your property can be dependent on the instruction of an efficient and experienced solicitor. Do some research, and make a decision before you put your property on the market as this will help to avoid delays. If you have a solicitor in hand, the process can move much more quickly once you have accepted an offer. Our highly experienced property consultants will then guide you through the conveyancing process, and provide you with regular updates up until completion.
