Your Frequently Asked Questions about selling property answered by the Rock Stars...
First of all you need to receive a valuation to find out how much your home is worth. We recommend asking at least three different Estate Agents to value your home. Ask them about the services they offer, the current state of the local market, and the purchase price you can hope to achieve. Make and plan and how this sits with your priorities and timescales. For more help, view our tips for selling your home.
There are three main costs involved in selling a property: Estate Agent Fees Estate Agent Fees will either be a percentage of the purchase price, or a fixed fee. When Estate Agents visit to value your home, make sure they outline their fees so you can take these into consideration. Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) You are legally required to provide an EPC when you market your property for sale. This outlines the energy efficiency rating of your property. Contact Red Rock Estate Agency for a quote for how much this will cost.

Red Rock accompany all viewings, but you may decide that you’d like to be present. It’s really up to you.
This partly depends on the conditions of the offer. Remember, neither the buyer nor the seller is bound to the purchase or sale until the contracts are signed and exchanged, so it’s worth keeping your options open.
Every sale is different. Both your position and the buyer’s position needs to be taken into account before this question can be answered accurately. If your home has been realistically valued, you should expect to receive offers within the first 4 weeks. Then, assuming your buyer has to apply for their mortgage, the exchange of contracts usually takes between 10 and 12 weeks and then completion is between 2 and 4 weeks later. So in total you should expect 12-16 weeks to complete the sale.
