Marketing Your Home

Valuation of your property in readiness for sale

We will provide you with an accurate assessment, based on our wealth of experience, of the current market value of your property. If you have ideas to improve or develop your property further, we can advise you of the effect this may have on value and saleability. Following this meeting you will receive a letter confirming our opinion on value. By keeping you up to date and maintaining frequent communication we will be able to make sure that we do what is best for you in the sale of your property.

Instructions to commence marketing

When you are ready to proceed, we will arrange an appointment to fully measure up, take professional photography and record the full details of your property.  We will discuss any features of the property you most enjoy and could be interesting to potential purchasers. Arrangements will be made for the Energy Performance Certificate and Sales particulars to include floorplans will be prepared for your approval together with the documentation for you to sign when coming on board with us.

Selling Your Home


We will then launch your property to the open market, and to our extensive mailing list of potential buyers. Your home will appear on our fantastic new website, which includes your own client login area My Housebook, as well as national portals such as Rightmove and Zoopla


If you are in residence, we will arrange viewing times in conjunction with you. We very much like to accompany viewings wherever possible and are happy to hold a key on your behalf to show prospective buyers. However if you feel that you would rather show the property yourself then we can simply arrange the best suitable time with you.

Negotiating on your behalf

We will establish the full financial position of all interested parties, either through their agent or financial advisor at the time an offer is received so we can then advise you of their ability to proceed should terms be agreed. We will handle all negotiations on your behalf in order to achieve the best possible sale’s outcome for your property.

Confirmation of terms and instructing solicitors

When sales terms have been agreed, we will forward our official documentation to all parties’ solicitors confirming the Heads of Terms and any other conditions of sale. This leads to the conveyancing process.

Guiding the Conveyancing process

The different stages of conveyancing includes your solicitor answering enquiries, receipt of searches through to an exchange of contracts when a date is set for completion. These are stages that are crucial to the sale of your property and where we use our wealth of experience in liaising with solicitors and guiding the process to the successful handing over of keys on the day of completion.

Our Communications

Communication is at the very heart and forefront of what we at Grier and Partners pride ourselves on, together with the personal relationships that we develop with our clients.
