Selling Guide


What makes Minors & Brady so different?

"When you are paying us to sell your home, you’ll see every penny of that money well spent." - Jamie Minors, Managing Director.

We pride ourselves on being an independent estate agent who 'love what we do', so we're honoured that you're considering working with us to sell your property. Below you will find a general guide we've put together on the steps of selling your home.

Free Valuation and Marketing Appraisal.

From the valuation stage, all market appraisals are carried out by one of our Directors or Valuers. We’ll discuss how to get the best possible price for your home and look at a potential marketing plan that will suite you and your home best to ensure maximum exposure to buyers. Alongside the valuation, we will advise on any fees associated with the moving process.

Prepare For Market.

With over 20 years' of selling experience, we know what's needed to sell your home. First impressions count, so make sure you're doing everything you can to impress buyers. Pull the weeds out, trim the grass and finish off those last minute paint jobs. De-cluttering a property is also advised to show more space and not cause any distractions to viewers.

Launching To Market

Once you have instructed us we will together create a marketing plan and another member of the team will visit the property to get familiar with its best-selling features and layout. We understand it’s much easier to sell something you’ve been to and seen with your own eyes. We will start calling our registered buyers the same day as to create a ‘buzz’ about the property being newly listed as well as calling through potential clients that have enquired about properties similar to yours. Every home and owner is different, so our advertising is diverse. We'll advertise your property on the three best portals Rightmove, Zoopla and On The Market as well as our own website of course, in the local newspapers, our shop windows and we also have great communication with some London based agents, capturing some of the Capital’s best buyers.We call with viewing feedback the following morning, updating you with honest advice and next steps.

Current government legislation requires the majority of properties to have an energy performance certificate (EPC) which we will organise on behalf of you if you need an updated one.

We offer no additional charge to carry out the viewings on your behalf to save you time and any awkward conversations. You are after all paying us a fee to sell your home. Every offer that is made is financially checked and formally put forward. All negotiations are overseen by our branch managers in the office to ensure the best price is met.

Congratulations, a sale has been agreed! - What Happens Next?

Once the buyer has been found, we’ll help you find a reliable conveyancing team who will help you with the legalities of selling a home. Part of what makes us so special is our dedicated sales progression team which will be on hand to answer any questions you may have and offer support in a potentially confusing time. Adam Waters is an Associate Partner in the business and his role is to check the situation with the solicitors, mortgage companies, surveyors and everybody involved in your chain every week. From our perspective, the job isn’t finished until you’ve moved out of your property, into your new one and the keys are handed over.
