These are the most frequently asked questions (FAQs) about selling property.

How much is my property worth?

A property is only worth what a willing and able buyer is willing to pay. But the Reeds Rains' dedicated sales teams will give you an indication of its value at a free property valuation.

How much will it cost to sell my home?

There are a number of fees to consider when looking to sell a property, such as for estate agents, conveyancing/solicitors, surveys, etc. These costs will vary depending on the value of your property, its location, etc. Your local Reeds Rains branch will be able to give you a full breakdown of these costs at your property valuation.

How long will it take to sell my property?

This varies hugely on the type of property, the local area, your asking price, your agreed marketing strategy, etc. Your local Reeds Rains branch will be able to give you an educated idea of the time it will take to sell when you have a free property valuation of your home.

Do I need an EPC to sell my home?

It is a legal requirement to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) to market your property. Reeds Rains can organise one for you or you can arrange your own.

Should I find a house to buy before I get a valuation?

No. We would always advise you to have a property valuation first. This way you can have a better idea of the amount you may wish to spend on your next property.

Who will conduct the viewings on my property and when will they occur?

You can conduct your own viewings or a representative from Reeds Rains will happily conduct them for you. If you are having accompanied viewings you have the option to be present yourself, or you could go out.

Viewings can take place at anytime of the day, but most are during evenings and weekends. If you live at the property no viewing will ever take place without being confirmed with you first.
