It is fair to say that moving home is stressful—from the anxiety of securing your next home to the frustration and hurdles to overcome along the way. However, by being prepared, you can greatly increase the odds of everything going according to plan.
Have the best team working for you
It is extremely important to find an estate agent that you can trust and work closely with. After all, this is probably your biggest financial asset, and poor advice or actions by those acting on your behalf could cost you thousands—and a great deal of unnecessary stress.
When choosing who to use, a positive past experience or a glowing recommendation from friends or family is the best place to start. I also advise you check recent Google reviews to see what their customers really say about them.
If you are buying-on, speak to a mortgage broker to find out exactly how much you can borrow and what it will cost you on a monthly basis.
Our sister company MAPIO Financial can help: as experienced mortgage specialists, they can search the market and find the right solutions for you. A quick read of their 5 Star Google reviews will confirm you’re in the right place.
Be prepared ahead of time
Don’t wait until you need to sell to get your property ready for marketing. Give yourself the time in advance to prepare it and secure a sunny day for photos, particularly if you are finding it hard to find a new property.
This will put you in pole position to go live as soon as you do. At Your Move Anscombs we cover all costs to do this; and as we are ‘no sale, no fee’, there’s no risk to you.
Also, make sure you have all your documents ready to be sent to the solicitor. Of particular importance are planning permission and building regulations compliance certificates for any relevant works or extensions that have been carried out. These can hold up the sale and lead to costly re-negotiations if they are not in place.
Trust the team to deliver
If you have chosen well, your agent will proactively make it happen for you and keep you updated throughout.
At Your Move Anscombs, we believe that communication is key and we agree a method that works for you from the start. (Setting up a WhatsApp group with all key parties is particularly popular!)
We pride ourselves on giving you the best advice so you can confidently make informed decisions at every stage.
During the progression of your sale, which is often when the most stress can be felt, we proactively engage with all parties to ensure your transaction is a priority.
When others are unavailable, you’ll always find us here at the end of the phone ready to help, because we genuinely care about you and your experience.
But don’t just take our word for it; take a look at our Google reviews: our customers say it so much better!
