Step-by-step selling guide



Selling your house can be an extremely challenging decision and we understand that you may be overwhelmed with what lies ahead. The REA Sales team are on hand to make the process as hassle-free as possible as well as helping you get the most from your property sale.

We have created a step-by-step selling guide which gives you a greater insight into the process of selling your property ; rest assured that REA will be with you every step of this exciting journey!



STEP 1: VALUING YOUR PROPERTY

You want to ensure you get the best possible valuation for your property. REA will provide an accurate valuation based on local market knowledge and explain the reasons behind the valuation and how it is achievable.

STEP 2: ESTATE AGENT RELATIONSHIP

REA will ensure we work tirelessly to market and sell your property in the best possible way. Our presence within Reading, our streamlined marketing material and our flexible opening times will ensure your property is highlighted and advertised in the most effective manner.

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) must be commissioned before marketing your property; please speak with our sales team, we can happily arrange this.



STEP 3: INSTRUCTING A SOLICITOR

Instructing a solicitor will be an important part of the selling process; it is important to research and find the right solicitor who will ensure the successful sale of your property.

STEP 4: PRESENTING YOUR PROPERTY

It is crucial your property is presented in the best possible way when offered to the market. Good quality pictures of a clean and clutter-free house will give you the best chance of catching the eye of prospective buyers.

STEP 5: MARKETING YOUR PROPERTY

The REA marketing package will give you unrivalled access to a number of different channels which will highlight your property in the best possible light.

STEP 6: RECEIVING AND ACCEPTING AN OFFER

Once REA have marketed your property and subsequently received a successful offer, we will notify you both verbally and in writing. REA will then prepare a memorandum of sale, write to all parties confirming the agreed price and confirm your solicitor’s details. We will negotiate exchange and completion dates and ensure draft contracts are received.

STEP 7: EXCHANGE OF CONTRACTS

Your solicitor will raise any queries on receipt of the draft contract, they will also request their own searches and finally agree a date for exchange of contracts.

STEP 8: COMPLETION

Completion will occur when the remainder monies are transferred from your buyer’s solicitor to your solicitor. We will then be informed to release the keys; you will then be able to celebrate the sale of your property!
