When considering selling your property, it is important to explore all of the options available to ensure that you are using the best method of sale. Stags’ property experts work hard to establish your requirements and find a tailored approach for you and your circumstances.
Ideal for sellers who are hoping to move from one property to another, the agent establishes a guide price, markets the property, obtains and negotiates offers, agrees a sale and progresses to completion. This method generally allows greater flexibility, particularly when it comes to timescales, which items are included or excluded and even subject to sellers needing to find their next home. Typically, this process involves:
Particularly attractive to sellers looking for a fast and secure sale, selling by auction works well when competitive marketing is likely to generate the best outcome. Ideal for properties in need of renovation, building plots, land and unconventional properties, this method involves a concentrated marketing campaign of approximately five to seven weeks before the auction date. Assuming bidding reaches the agreed reserve price, the sale is exchanged and a legally-binding contract is formed when the hammer falls on the day, with completion usually 28 days thereafter.

For this method, buyers are invited to submit competitive bids by a specified date. These bids are put forward in a sealed envelope and all tenders are reviewed by the vendor who chooses the most favourable option. Solicitors are then instructed and the sale is progressed in the usual way. It is important to note that informal tenders are not legally binding until contracts are exchanged. This method of sale works well if a vendor wishers to sell within a certain timeframe as it brings matters to a head promptly and settles the best sale in a competitive situation.
