Selling Guidelines


Guidance Notes for Selling Your Property


Deciding to sell your property can be a big decision, it can be very exciting but also challenging.  Having a good Estate Agent can help things run smoothly.  There could be many reasons why you are considering moving.  It could be that you are downsizing or looking for a bigger family home or relocating for a new job.

Once you have decided that you are ready to sell, contact the team at Thorps Estate Agents to arrange a convenient time for a free valuation of your property.  There is no obligation to go with Thorps, although David is well placed to tell you how much your house is likely to sell for.  He has eighteen years experience in Blaby and the surrounding areas.

The valuation is based on comparable properties both from the Land Registry and our own database of recently sold/available properties.  The valuation of the property will be sent out in writing either by post or email, whichever you prefer.

At the initial appointment David can take the photographs of the property or if you would prefer to have a think about it, you can make an appointment at a later date.


The Estate Agents role in selling your property is as follows:-


Free Valuation – David will go through the process and the costs involved in selling your home i.e. Estate Agent fees and EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) fees.

Marketing Your Property – i.e. internet sites, local paper etc.

Dealing with viewings – We can do the viewings for you or you can choose to do the viewing yourself if you prefer.

Feedback – We will obtain feedback from the viewers and update you.

Offers –Dealing with offers on the property and negotiating the best price/best buyer.

Solicitors –We will liaise with Solicitors and keep you updated as each stage is reached.  We will help guide you through exchange of contracts, through to completion. Exchange of Contracts is when a date for completion is set.

We will then deal with the handing over of keys at completion.  The Completion date is the date you move out of the property.
