A Step-by-Step Guide to Selling and Reserving Your Dream Property

Moving to a new home is an exciting journey, and when it comes to reserving your newly built dream home, the process becomes even more special. From finding the perfect home to completing the sale and moving in, each step plays a crucial role in making your dream a reality. In this article, we will walk you through the key steps and processes involved in selling your current property and reserving your new home. Additionally, we’ll discuss the importance of choosing the right estate agent to assist you throughout this exciting transition.

Step 1: Find Your Newbuild Home

The first step in the process is to visit current developments in the area you want to live and select the plot that matches your preferences and tastes. Most developers offer a range of beautiful properties to suit every kind of lifestyle.

Step 2: List Your Property for Sale

To begin the process of reserving your newbuild home, you may need to sell your current property. This involves listing it for sale with the help of a trusted estate agent. Choosing the right agent is crucial, as they will play a significant role in marketing your property effectively and ensuring a smooth sale process.

Step 3: Get Your Property Valued

One of the initial steps when selling your home is to get a professional property valuation. This will provide you with an accurate understanding of its market value and help you set a competitive asking price.

Step 4: Property Marketing

To attract potential buyers, it’s essential to present your property in its best light. Photography, videography and even 3D video tours can showcase your home’s unique features and create an appealing online presence. Your estate agent will then market your property through various channels to maximize its visibility and reach a wider pool of potential buyers.

Step 5: Guided Viewings and Negotiations

Your estate agent will schedule guided viewings for interested buyers, allowing them to experience your home first-hand. As offers come in, your agent will guide you through the negotiation process, ensuring your interests are protected while striving for the best possible sale price.

Step 6: Agreeing Your Sale and Reserving Your Newbuild Home

Once you’ve accepted an offer on your current property, it’s time to reserve your newbuild Home. This involves working closely with the developer to secure your desired property and complete the necessary paperwork and reservation process.

Step 7: Sales Progression, Chain Management, and Exchange

During this phase, your estate agent will provide sales progression support, coordinating with all parties involved, including solicitors, mortgage lenders, and other estate agents in the chain. They will facilitate a smooth exchange of contracts, ensuring all legal requirements are met.

Step 8: Complete your Sale and Move In

Once everything has been sorted, it is time to set the date, book in the removals, collect your new keys, and get ready for an exciting new chapter in your life.

As you can see from the steps, choosing the right estate agent when selling your property is crucial to ensuring a seamless and successful transition to your newbuild home. Their expertise, guidance, and support throughout the process will make a significant difference, ultimately leading you to the day when you can step foot into your dream home.
