We understand that selling your home is a truly life-changing decision. As a result, it’s one that can be incredibly stressful for you and your family.
However, with our dedicated, passionate and experienced team of residential property experts looking after you every step of the way, our goal is always to take away the stress and make your sale as simple, fast, and efficient as we possibly can.
Our 12-step sales process:
Selling a property for the best possible price is something that requires a strategic approach from our initial meeting with you at your home, right through to the final contract-signing stage.
Our step-by-step sales process ensures you know what to expect throughout the sales journey – and gives you the peace of mind of knowing that when you choose us as your partner, you can be sure we’ll get the best sale price for you.
Selling a property is very often a life-changing decision. It’s vital, therefore, that you like and trust the property agent whom you choose for the sale.
This is where we excel. First, we’ll meet so that we can listen to and understand your needs. We’ll then do our homework, put a value on your property, and meet to discuss the best available options.
Note: there is no obligation to proceed any further at this initial stage, and there is no cost involved for you.
Once you’ve decided you’d like BV Commercial to sell your property for you, we’ll agree our fee, as well a marketing budget. At this stage, we will also agree on the method and timing of the sale so that everyone knows what is happening and when.
Now you’ve given us your business we’ll need to commission high-quality professional photographs, to help show your property in the best possible light.
Before our photographer arrives at your property – at a time that’s agreed with you in advance – we will email you some ‘top tips’ for having your property photographed to ensure your property is looking its best in all marketing literature that we produce and distribute.
By law, your property must have a Building Energy Rating (BER) before we can list it for sale or lease. We can arrange this service for you for a nominal fee.

With photography, property valuation, and on-the-ground research of the market complete, we will now produce a beautiful, sales-focused brochure that captures the essence of your property. Even more importantly, we’ll make sure this gets sent to our entire database of potential buyers.
Next, we’ll upload your property to the best property websites. Then, once it is listed and live online, we’ll advertise it in all relevant media. Depending on the property and target audience, this will involve a combination of local newspapers, flyer drops, email campaigns to relevant target databases, and of course national newspapers/weekend supplements.
Because of our strong customer service and hard work ethos, we are available to show your property anytime – and well after most agents have gone home. But don’t worry, we’ll always give you plenty of notice of impending viewings and update you after each one so that you’re never left in the dark.
Great, we’ve got an offer! At this stage, we’ll negotiate to get you the very best price possible. And because we love knowing that we’ve got the best deal possible, you can be certain we’ll never settle for second best.
Once we get a sale agreed, we’ll accept a booking deposit from the buyer and send your solicitor a sales advice note, detailing the transaction. Your solicitor will then prepare the Contract for Sale and forward it, along with the title deeds, to the buyer’s solicitor.
Often a buyer will instruct a building surveyor to inspect the property and inform the buyer about any defects identified within the property. This process can take a number of hours to complete, but it is time very well spent and something we would highly recommend ahead of a purchase.
Now the buyer signs the contract. Once signed, this is sent back to your solicitor together with the deposit, which is usually 10% of the agreed price, less the booking deposit. You’ll then sign the contract in the presence of your solicitor, meaning the sale is now binding on both parties.
Both solicitors have further legal work to do at this stage of the process. As a result, a lull will ensue as the legal process takes its course. However, you can rest assured that even during this quieter period, we will keep in contact with both solicitors and ensure you’re kept up to date every step of the way.
