According to Rightmove, the average time on market before a sale is agreed is 64 days*. And that doesn’t include the thousands of properties that either don’t sell at all, or don’t sell by the original appointed agent. The true figure may well be three or four months, or more, before a sale is agreed and the legal work begins, This second “legal” stage can sometimes take an equally long time. In our view, the whole process is simply far too long – risking putting your life ‘on hold’ and often causing unnecessary stress and certainly too much time for things to go wrong (across the UK some 40% of sales fall-through prior to exchange of contracts).
At Wilkinson Grant & Co. we believe that it is a reasonable expectation of any serious committed seller for an agent to find them a buyer within thirty days of going to market. This leaves ample time for a good agent to give the property the widest local, regional and national exposure, properly engage with the best potential buyers and negotiate a sale that will proceed to successful exchange and completion.
Our “secret family recipe” combines the years of experience obtained by our brilliant team, far reaching effective marketing to ensure any suitable buyers are aware of your property (no matter where they currently live) and innovative sales techniques. With this approach we keep you well informed and updated using a detailed reporting and review system designed to adapt to any market conditions. This proven, successful method of finding you a buyer and negotiating a sale with combining years of experience, far reaching effective marketing, innovative sales techniques and a detailed reporting and review system designed to adapt to any market conditions, we have devised a proven, successful method of finding you a buyer within 30 days of coming to market – in many cases it takes less than half this time! .
In today’s challenging times, we know it takes a bit more than a friendly chat, a few photos and a listing on the Internet property portals to get the best results for our clients. We cannot promise you a sale in 30 days but can promise you that everything we do is tailored to achieve just that. And if for any reason a sale has not been agreed in that time, we re-launch , effectively as if new to the market , to keep your property fresh and in front of a whole new pool of prospective buyers.
Then, when a sale is agreed , we follow proven systems and procedures – designed with sixteen local law firms – to do everything possible to get the sale to exchange of contracts within 30 days. Again, of course, we cannot promise this – particularly if there is a chain of linked sales – but we can promise that we work hard to ensure that realistic timescales are set from the outset and all parties are “on board” to help drive them to exchange and completion.
In simple terms, we strive to half the time it takes to move.
