Our approach to selling properties here at Paul Alexander is different from many other Estate Agents. By paying particular attention to every detail and our client’s needs, we tailor the marketing of your home to achieve the optimum price whilst at the same time providing the most suitable purchaser. We also believe honest, straight forward and professional advice is the best way to conduct all business matters and we hope this will be apparent on any future meetings.
At Paul Alexander we are known for our comprehensive marketing initiatives and our ability to achieve rapid results. The appropriate presentation and marketing of your property is fundamental to a successful sale and is of paramount importance in achieving the optimum price. We take immense pride in ensuring that every property is presented in the best possible light and placed in the appropriate media quickly and efficiently. For each property we bring to market, Paul Alexander offer maximum exposure to the widest market place possible, this is achieved by advertising on the main portal Rightmove along with the Paul Alexander website, increasing exposure to over 25million visitors a month as well as Local Media press.
Your first step as a Buyer is to register your details and property requirements. This can be done either through our website, by email, on the phone or by visiting the office in person. This will allow us to gain a personal insight into your requirements and enable us to provide you with property particulars which are of interest to you.
You can now start to receive property details from us matching your requirements, via mail, email, phone or they can be printed from Rightmove.
The sales team at Paul Alexander will be available to arrange any viewings of your selected properties. These viewings will be accompanied by one of the Sales Team in order to build up an accurate idea of your likes or dislikes and to answer any questions you may have. Viewings can be arranged Monday – Friday between 9am – 6pm and 10am – 4pm on Saturdays. We are also able to accommodate late viewing so if you need to view after these hours this can be arranged.
We strongly advise where possible to have a mortgage agreed in principal before you make a final decision on any property. Not only will this give you a clear indication of what is affordable but is also very attractive to Sellers. If you require assistance with your mortgage, we work closely with a select few mortgage advisors who we will be more than happy to recommend.
On deciding to make an offer on your ideal property, your offer will be submitted by us to the vendor for consideration. This offer will be submitted verbally and in writing. All offers are ‘subject to contract’ and neither party is legally bound until the contract is signed and exchanged.
A Mortgage Valuation is required by law and is the next step to making your purchase. This will be conducted by a Chartered Surveyor acting for your Lender. This report is to determine the basic condition of the property and whether the amount to be loaned is secure. A copy is provided to both you and the seller and it allows both parties to evaluate the findings before entering into a commitment to purchase.
These will be conducted by the buyers solicitor. A Local Authority search will be submitted to the Local Borough Council and its purpose is to determine if there was ever any planning consent previously granted (or denied) on the property and if there are any other local issues which may have an impact on the purchase.
The Lender will now be in possession of the Mortgage Valuation survey. Subject to the findings of this report, approval of the mortgage application and provided all checks and referencing have been carried out satisfactorily, the lender will send a formal mortgage offer to the buyer and their solicitor. This document is then signed and returned and the funds requested by the buyers solicitor.
