So my top tip is – don’t be the delay! Make sure you have paperwork, ID, your mortgage all set up in plenty of time. Be flexible. I’ve seen many sales go wrong for the sake of a second-hand fridge or lounge carpet not being included. Don’t sweat the small stu ; make the transaction easy for everyone and it’s more likely to go well. Be realistic. No home is perfect; expect to nd some faults on the survey or even with the legals. Yes, you don’t want to buy a money pit with issues but most issues can be xed with a bit of time or money so try to see the bigger picture. Keep it quiet. Don’t tell people you don’t trust what you’re doing – word can spread and you could be gazumped. If you’re the one selling, ll in your PIF (Property Information Form) and all other paperwork as soon as you go on to the market to save delay. If the chain breaks, consider using a chain- x service where a cash buyer steps in to buy the problem property and gets everyone moving. Use a good estate agent, even if they cost a bit more. Insist on regular updates and make sure you keep them in the loop if you hear or do something important. Check reviews, get recommendations and pop in yourself to assess who’s good and who isn’t. Now you have a good estate agent, you’ll need a great solicitor too. Again, check reviews; ask them how quickly the response to emails and whether you’ll have a nominated person acting for you or you’ll be one of a number in a call centre. Trying to save money by using the cheapest rm could well cost much more in the future so do your homework. Above all, be open, honest and communicative with the agents, the chain, the solicitors and surveyors – getting the sale through is going to be a team e ort.
