Our Residential Sales Department, based in Caterham, sells all types of property from studio flats to large detached houses and bungalows. We cover an extensive area which includes the following towns and villages:
- Caterham on the Hill
- Caterham Valley
- Old Coulsdon
- South Godstone
Our staff are very experienced in house sales and are motivated to sell property at the best possible price and in a timescale to suit our clients situation.
We offer a comprehensive marketing plan for the sale of your property which includes advertising on Rightmove, Zoopla and Primelocation websites in addition to a further 10 websites including the Times, Telegraph and Daily Mail as well as our own website www.pajonespropertysolutions.co.uk. We also advertise in the Caterham Independent which is a monthly local Newspaper distributed in the CR3 postcode area.
All of our properties for sale have a detailed colour floor plan, quality colour photographs (Professional photography available including aerial shots, price on application) and a detailed description of each room, gardens, garages and outside facilities. All of this information also appears on all websites.
We provide an ‘OPEN HOUSE’ style of marketing with all viewings being accompanied at individual appointment times (every 20 – 30 mins) during daylight hours on a Saturday. This can create good competition between buyers and can lead to multiple offers on your property, especially in an active selling market. If you don’t wish to have an ‘OPEN HOUSE’ then we can market using the more traditional method of individual appointments to suit the buyer and seller.
After an initial period of marketing (depending on whether it is a selling or buying market) we will diarise a property review date, this is to decide whether any changes are required to the marketing improve the saleability of the property. We assess the feedback, volume of viewings and overall website presentation and arrange an appointment with the seller to plan the next steps forward in selling the property.
Every viewing is confirmed by telephone and email where possible. The following working day all viewers are called to obtain their feedback on the viewing which is then passed on to you as soon as possible. Feedback is essential to us as your agent and to you as the seller, as it can help us and you to decide if the property marketing requires tweaking to improve the saleability of the property. This may mean a change in price, new photos, a new description or a change in what we promote about your property to potential buyers.
All offers are phoned through to the sellers at the first opportunity and followed up in writing. We always ask the buyers financial position, whether they have a mortgage agreed in principle, how much cash deposit they have to proceed and if they have a property to sell to finance the purchase. If they are under offer we will check with their agent the progress of their sale to ascertain the strength of their offer, how long a house chain maybe etc.. We can then advise the seller and decide on the best way to respond to the offer.
Our objective is to introduce the best buyer available in a good buying position to offer the best price.
As soon as a sale is agreed the file is passed to our dedicated Sales Progression Manager whose main task is to keep all parties (sellers and buyers) in touch with the progress of the sale to ensure it reaches exchange of contracts in the shortest possible timescale. This process can take anything between eight weeks to four months as it is dependent on many factors, including any house chain, mortgages, solicitors, survey results etc...
This is a vital part of our service to our clients which many past clients have been most grateful for, alleviating a lot of worries and undue pressure from the sales process.
