FIND YOUR DREAM HOME
The prospect of selling your home can be a daunting one. It may be that you have fallen out of love with your home as it no longer meets your needs, or it could be that you still love your home and have to move for another reason. We aim to make selling your home as easy and stress free as possible. Here is our step by step guide to selling your home:
You need to get an approximate idea of how much your house is worth, this will give you an idea of what else you can buy or just to calculate how much money you will be left with after you have paid off the mortgage. Try our instant free online valuation tool or contact us to arrange a more detailed valuation. At a face to face valuation, we can also offer some handy hints to make your home attractive to as many potential buyers as possible.

Of course, we hope that you choose ACJ to market your property for sale, however, our advice is not to base your decision solely on whoever gives you the highest valuation of the property. When the property is advertised at too high a price, the property is harder to sell. The danger of this approach, even with a later price reduction is that if the house sits on the market for a long time, it might become blighted in the mind of potential buyers, asking “what’s wrong with it?” It is important to make a good first impression, and price the property correctly in the first place.
You should also remember that agents who are not local to the area will be basing their price on land registry sold prices and other online statistics. This will not necessarily give them insight into local variances such as school catchment areas.
ACJ will provide you with an accurate valuation based on our 25 years local experience of selling properties throughout the Vale of Glamorgan and Cardiff. We will also back this up with Best Price Guides from leading property portal, Rightmove. The valuation meeting is important, this is your opportunity to question us about the services we offer, our ethos and past successes in selling a property like yours.
When choosing your estate agent you should also consider:
At this point, you will need to settle your accounts with us and your solicitor. If you are buying and selling at the same time, the Solicitor can usually settle up for all transactions, including paying stamp duty for the house you are buying.
