Selling your home in Sussex and Surrey

Selling your home can seem like a daunting prospect, but choosing Zoom995 can make the process as stress-free as possible. We have a traditional high street office in Crawley, as well as an online presence, all with transparent and fixed fees.

Market your property with experts

Market your property with experts

Setting your initial sale price is one of the most important aspects of the selling process and can make all the difference when it comes to getting the offer you want.

To get started, all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call at Zoom995 on 0333 358 3095, and from there we’ll give you a no obligation market appraisal and property visit. One of our property experts will be able to advise you on the current market and devise a bespoke marketing strategy for your property.

Ready to sell

Ready to sell

If you wish to go ahead, we’ll get your house put on the market for you as soon as you’re ready. Your house will be put up on all the major property websites including Rightmove, Zoopla, OnTheMarket and Primelocation. We will take high-quality pictures of your home to put online, including on our own website.

Your property will have an eye-catching sales board put up outside and we’ll ensure your home is displayed in our Crawley branch so any potential buyers can see it. We will always strive to achieve the best possible price for our customers in a reasonable time frame thanks to our honest and open approach to selling your home and valuing your property at the right price.

Successful viewings

Successful viewings

Once your property is put on the market and advertised on all major property websites, the team at Zoom995 will contact you to arrange viewings with potential buyers.

Did you know that viewers often make up their minds within seconds of visiting your home? This means first impressions count. Less is more so aim to declutter your home, while keeping a homely feel. Make sure the property looks as tidy, bright and fresh as it can. Open the curtains and turn on the lights if it’s a dark day.

Prepare for your viewing

Prepare for your viewing

We have lots of hints and tips to help you prepare your home for viewings on our blog. These tips are also useful for our photographer’s visit, when they will be taking the best possible pictures of your property.

We will accompany viewers around your home and explain to them all the positive qualities of the property. Keeping you in the loop at all times, we will always let you know who is wishing to view your property and when. Feedback will be provided promptly after every viewing.

Offers, offers, offers

Offers, offers, offers

The next step is securing your first offer! We will negotiate all offers with you while advising you on the buyer’s position, so you can achieve the best possible price for your home.

If there is more than one offer on the table, we will liaise with all potential buyers for you. Sometimes our customers want a quick sale and would prefer a cash buyer. Either way, we’ll check in with you at every step of the way and only act with your best interests in mind.

Offer accepted!

Offer accepted!

Once you have accepted an offer we will take your property off of the market and for further peace of mind, Zoom995 charge a small admin fee (£118.80 including VAT) to the buyer to show commitment towards the purchase.

At Zoom995 we take the stress away by taking control of all the legal bits while you celebrate selling your home. Once an offer is accepted there is often a surge of activity between estate agents, solicitors and mortgage lenders. We understand that this can be an anxious time for our customers. Not only will we do the chasing for you, we will ensure you are kept updated and offered plenty of moral support along the way.

For the smoothest sale possible, why not take advantage of our other property services including mortgages, lettings, conveyancing and insurance?

Instruct a legal team

Instruct a legal team

Your property is now sold subject to contract. The next step will be to instruct a legal team to act on the conveyancing of the sale. Did you know at Zoom995 we offer a full conveyancing service and after sales care? This can provide you with peace of mind that everything is dealt with in-house, and you won’t have to be in contact with multiple organisations.

At this point you’ll need to begin collecting documentation as this is the point in which your conveyancer will require information about your home. We’ll help advise you on what you’ll need in good time.

Exchange of contracts

Exchange of contracts

Zoom995 will work hand-in-hand with you, the conveyancer, the buyer and any other estate agents involved, and provide you with regular updates throughout the sale process. We will make you aware of certain milestones such as surveys and other key events. This is where we differ from other online agencies – you will receive a full traditional service.

You will then exchange contracts. This is when the sale of your home becomes legally binding and the buyer’s deposit is transferred to your solicitor. We will let you know as soon as this stage of the sale has gone ahead.

Completion

Completion

Congratulations, you have successfully sold your home using Zoom995!

When moving out ensure that you leave the property as described in the contract, with the agreed fixtures and fittings, and everything else has been cleared out accordingly. It is always nice to have a clean home to move into.

Completion and moving in normally coincide on the same day. We will help to ensure sure this happens at the same time so you can move in out and in one day with ease. We will only release your keys once your solicitor confirms he has received funds. All official deeds for the property are also handed over at this point.

Once you’ve moved and settled into your new home, we would love to hear feedback from you about your experience with Zoom995. You can give us a call on 0333 358 3095 or drop us an email on sales@zoom995.co.uk at any time.

If you’re on social media, we would love to feature you on some of our channels, such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. Let us know, and we can explain a bit more.
