The Property Sale Process - Explained

The good news about selling a property is it’s usually a simpler process than buying one! This is a summary of the steps we need to take to sell your property.

This is just a summary of what’s involved in the sale process so don’t worry if things don’t quite make sense; they’ll be explained in more detail later on. And remember, you can call us if you have any questions.
