Selling Your Property
Selling property can be a minefield. You want to make sure you get a good price, great service and at competitive rates. Follow MCM Estates and Lettings' 3 easy steps to selling your home successfully.
Step 1: Get The Facts
First, find out what your home is worth. Contact our friendly and professional Sales Team to book your FREE, No-Pressure Property Valuation and Appraisal.
Our service is completely tailored to your needs. We tell you how much it will cost to sell with us and go through our terms of service before you sign anything.
ALL of our properties come with a genuine NO-SALE-NO-FEE Guarantee. You only pay when we have completed on the sale of your property. There are no hidden fees and no solicitor lock-ins.
Step 2: Marketing
Instruct to sell with MCM with a simple call or email!
Ensure you get the best coverage when it comes to marketing. As your agent, we know your target audience, and will utilise tried and tested methods to achieve your sale. Not everyone is online! Especially in smaller towns, or poor signal areas. Make sure you've got high street coverage too. At MCM, this is all included as standard:
- Professional Photos & Floorplans
- For Sale / Sold signs
- Online Advertising, including Rightmove, Zoopla and Social Media
- High Street Advertising
- 100% Accompanied Viewings 7 days a week (to suit you!)
- Regular Reviews Of Your Advertising
- Regular Feedback on Viewings & Progress
Step 3: Sold!
MCM negotiate the best possible price from your potential buyers, and will liaise with you every step of the way. It's handy to have your chosen solicitor ready for when the time comes, too.
We keep in touch with all parties, providing you with regular progress, guidance and advice from offer all the way to completion.
For your convenience, your solicitor will pay MCM from the proceeds of the sale once it has completed, as agreed. We even do the key hand over to your new buyers, so you don't have to wait to move home!
Sell Your Home By Auction
MCM now offer Property Sales by the Traditional Auction Method, in association with the Sequence Property Auction Group. Sometimes, the usual route of selling your property through an Estate Agent is unsuitable for you, and for a number of reasons. That's why we're offering our customers another way to sell - with the largest Property Auction House in the UK!
What sort of property might sell at Auction?
- Something you want to sell quickly
- Project Property - in need of extensive renovation for example
- Investment Property - an ideal rental property
- Unusual Property - something especially unusual or unique about your property
- Properties with Structural Problems
- Properties with a Defect in the Title
- Building Land - with or without planning permission, part built homes etc.
What do i have to do?
MCM Estates and Lettings do their utmost to make this, and all their services, as easy as possible. If you're interested in selling your property at auction, the first thing to do is to talk to us! We discuss your property, your needs and work with the Sequence Property Auction Group to create a free, unique and no-obligation property valuation. We discuss costs involved in auctioning your property, potential value and a reserve price.
If you decide to go ahead with the Auction, there is a listing fee which helps create the marketing details for your property. This covers listing on Rightmove, Zoopla, the MCM website, in the Sequence auction listing online and in their auction brochure.
There is also an auction fee, which will be discussed with you in detail before you sign up.
Throughout, MCM monitor the interest and progress of your property, do all viewings and discuss any bids prior to the auction. If, for any reason, your property does not sell in the first auction, it will be carried into the next auction at no extra cost to you.
Once the hammer is down, your property is sold!
Call us on 01773 716565 and we'll guide you through the whole process.
