Accurate valuations based on our local knowledge and experience is crucial in achieving the best price. If the price is set too high, interest will be slow and vital momentum will be lost. The list price should be set to make sure the property is open to the widest market possible and the maximum value is realised.
Presentation is vital to achieving the best possible price, relying on purchasers to ‘see past’ certain items only encourages low offers. We prepare a staging report free of charge recommending low cost improvements that can be made that will have a proportionally greater effect on the price. If required we can call on a maintenance team to carry out any such works.
The first time purchasers will have a glimpse of your property is usually online, so a strong marketing campaign is important to encourage enquiries and viewings. With a focus on this, we engage a professional photographer, draw up a floor plan and outsource brochure design and printing. If your property is marketed professionally, it will encourage higher offers.
Our commitment to achieving the best possible price means all prospective purchasers need to be targeted. We have an ever expanding list of buyers whom we can easily match property with. This form of active selling as opposed to simply listing a property gives us a great head start in achieving the best possible price.
Engagement with purchasers is very important and viewings are carried out during evening times and at weekends as well as during the day. This is when purchasers are most available and it is our objective to ensure as many people get to view the property as possible. Depending on people’s circumstances, some may not be able to attend viewings. We do live virtual tours and in some cases arrange 3D tours where purchasers can navigate their way around the property at their own pace. This is particularly popular with investors and potentially opens up the property to a wider market.
For many of our sales we use a bidding platform on our website to take offers and manage the bidding process. This gives purchasers complete transparency and the confidence to make offers. Offers can be made 24/7 and vendors can easily monitor the progress of the sale.
We advise vendors of all viewings, performance of marketing campaigns and critical decisions when it comes to accepting offers.
Closure is a key part in the sales process and Brock Delappe work closely with the appointed solicitors to ensure the sale goes through in an expedient fashion. The importance of this cannot be understated; given the longer this process takes the greater the chance of the sale falling through. We advise vendors to be contract ready from the outset and can provide a list of items that a solicitor will need in order to draw up contracts.
Our fees, set at 1% of the sold price (subject to VAT at 23%), and chargeable only on the closure of a sale, will be more than covered in the additional price your property will achieve by choosing Brock Delappe. We recommend a nominal marketing budget is considered to ensure your property is presented to its potential. Call us now on +353(0)1 6334446 for more information or get in touch.
