How to sell your home - the Guides

Selling your home is a daunting experience. Many people have never sold their home whether using an online estate agent or using a traditional high street estate agent. We realised that with the knowledge we have in our office (our team have worked at the likes of Knight Frank, Marsh & Parsons, Carter Jonas and many more) we were in a great position to bring you guides to help you sell your home.

We have in depth step by step gudies as well as tips and tricks of the trade to make sure you are asking the right questions and doing everything you can to progress your house sale from the moment you choose an estate agent (in the industry that's called instruction) to the moment you hand over keys (completion).
