Our Guide to Selling

With strong local knowledge and connections, no detail is overlooked. We are proactive throughout the entire sales process from start to finish, working together with our clients to achieve their goals and aim to exceed our client’s expectations.

The Valuation

How much is your home worth? It’s vital to get an accurate valuation to achieve the best possible price in a timescale to suit your needs.

First Impressions

Creating the right impression is very important when selling your property. We can give you advice and guidance on how to create the best ambience within your home.

Photography

The best agents will only use the highest quality images and video to promote your home. First impressions do count.

EPC and Floor Plans

Energy Performance Certificates and Floorplans are carried out by a local Energy Assessor.

Marketing

Our state of the art technology goes to work matching suitable buyers to your home. Matching people and property is our job - we will phone, text and email suitable buyers for your home.

Sale Boards

We understand that the ‘FOR SALE’ board still proves itself as a strategic way of advertising your home. It generates interest through word of mouth from neighbours and passers-by to potential buyers.

Social Media

In today’s modern digital world, we are very active on social media platforms Facebook and Instagram.

Accompanied Viewings

Business owners Juliet and Virginia will accompany all viewings around your property giving viewers the best and most informed experience around your home.

Offers

When an offer is submitted we will guide you through every step of the process. We will clarify the chain details if any and request financial proof that the purchase is achievable. We will negotiate to achieve the best possible price for you.

Accepting an Offer

When an offer is accepted, we will suggest our recommended solicitors to act on your behalf and notify the buyers solicitor of all the relevant details.

Keeping You Informed

Once solicitors are instructed one of the team will regularly report to you with updates on your sale. Your buyer may need a mortgage valuation or a more detailed survey. They will also need to pay for the local authority searches. Your solicitor will need to prepare and issue a draft contract to the buyers solicitors who will then need to raise additional enquiries. This is standard procedure, and of course required throughout the whole chain.

Exchange of Contracts

When both solicitors are ready and all involved have agreed a mutual completion date, your solicitor will request relevant fees and deposits to be held on account in preparation of exchange of contracts. When this happens, we will contact you and confirm the completion date and offer further advice recommending removal companies etc.

Completion Day

From having your offer accepted or agreeing the sale of you own property, there is likely to be between 8 & 14 weeks in between. If you are selling with us, we request that you deliver your keys to our office when your removal company have packed your items in their vehicles and have finished. If you are buying with us, we will contact you once we have received notification from the vendors solicitor giving authority to release keys – you are then welcome to call into our office to collect the keys to your new home.

Parkers have a dedicated lettings department with a prominent office on the A370 in Backwell. Our goal is to provide our landlords and tenants with a no hassle, efficient and professional service.

Accompanied viewings and clear guidance on the letting process throughout with a Lettings Administrator on hand to deal with your enquiries on a daily basis.

  • "Definitely the best local agent" Parkers are very knowledgeable about the local area and were definitely the best local agent we saw when viewing various different properties. When we ended up buying our house through them, they were very easy to deal with and Lisa did a brilliant job at keeping us up to date with everything, meaning one less stress to worry about. Thanks to all!"Mrs B, London, Oct 2019

  • "We were very happy with your service" We were very happy with your service throughout, sorry for it being such a complex sale (although aren't they always!).You will be getting nothing but praise from us when people ask for estate agents in the area....I've already said to some people whom I've met who want to move to the area to "pop in" and speak to you."Mr B, Backwell, Sept 19
  • "You’ve all been great" Just to say thank you so much for all that you’ve done over the years regarding my property, with rental and now the sale. You’ve all been great and I am very grateful. I wish you all the very best"Mr S, Bristol, Aug 2019
