Property Marketing

Want to super-charge your property advertisement?

We champion your needs at the heart of everything that we do and we deliver a classy marketing strategy to achieve your property goals, deployed alongside robust and proactive procedures ensuring that you move fully compliant and with complete confidence.

Our SALES SERVICE includes:

Contract

A flexible two week rolling contract with no long minimum initial tie-in period. We charge 1.35% of the final sale price including VAT which is only payable on completion. There are no upfront costs or any hidden costs for marketing or exit of the contract.

High-Dynamic Range Property Photography

Our stunning photography with its industry-leading dynamic range speaks for itself. Do take some time to browse some of our available properties to appreciate the level of skill and thought utilised to showcase our property and engage more buyers by standing out from the crowd.

Aerial Photography / Videography

Perhaps you have a large plot, a wonderful scenic view or an unusual property profile? Drone Photography (or Video) adds a perspective that captivates the viewer and provides information visually that is difficult to convey via text and standard photography. Click through-rates and levels of enquiry for property with elevated photography are significantly higher than for those without.

Detailed Virtual Tours

Want to invest your time in the very best buyers? Think that your property will appeal to a distance market such as London? Then 3D property walk-throughs are for you.

With a virtual tour of your home available with all digital property adverts, the first time you see a viewer walkthrough your door will actually be their second viewing. This is a brilliant high-resolution virtual reality technology that not only enables your prospective buyer to explore your property on their own accord but it engages them and communicates a feeling of the property, its layout and detail in a way that conventional marketing just cannot.

You will find yourself investing your time in higher quality, better informed viewers and this service comes highly recommended for premium homes with fantastic interiors.

Multi-office exposure throughout the UK (including LONDON)

We are a member of the TEAM association of Estate Agents with over 300 inter-connected offices throughout the UK (including London). Each member shares its available properties with each other opening the door to a larger marketplace.

A dedicated and proactive Sales Team

Be it feedback from viewings within 24 hours, active sales progression, general advice on the market or specifics on your property sale or let - Our team have the knowledge and processes in place to ensure you are fully informed at all times and you have every confidence in your move.

Energy Performance Certificates

Required by legislation, unless you are selling a listed building (that cannot be improved without cosmetically altering its appearance), Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are your ticket to the marketplace. These have a lifespan of ten years and are commissioned on the property (not the property owner at that time). This certificate must accompany the marketing information for your property within 14 days of the first day of marketing.

These are provided at a cost of £65.00 including VAT. We will organise access with the energy assessor once you have made payment to inspect your property and commission the report.

Solicitors

Just like in estate agency (!) industry standards can vary wildly and, over the years, we’ve worked with most. Of course, we can recommend the very best and we highly recommend you talking to us about who is hot (and who is not) as a good solicitor can help keep those levels of anxiety under control and ensure that your sale runs smoothly.

We are not incentivised financially to make these recommendations, we do so because they have proven to be consistently excellent.

Why not drop us a line hello@churchwoodstanley.co.uk - you’re under no obligation and a few quotes can help you decide if you’re getting a good deal.

Surveyors

Where do you start? What sort of level of survey do you need?

If you’re having a mortgage your lender will likely instruct a valuation survey – this is solely a valuation report for mortgage lending suitability. No bells and whistles here just money talk.

Sometimes you can upgrade a mortgage valuation survey to a more detailed report known as a homebuyers report through your lender. This is a detailed report on the condition of the property and is appropriate for most purchases where the property is of standard construction without any obvious building defects or if you are a cash buyer.

If your heart is set on an older property or one which the fabric of the building may have problems, then a full structural survey is likely for you. This is a very detailed report that will get straight to the crux of everything that you need to know to shape your purchase position.

We really like Christopher White and James Harrison

Mortgage Finance

If you are intending to borrow money, it is important that you’ve worked out what you can afford before getting out there and viewing property. If you’ve found somewhere to buy you will need to present a ‘copy of your lending agreement’ to us, without it your offer cannot be processed! We cannot recommend enough going through an ‘all of the market’ broker and not just going to the people that you have banked with for years. An independent will be able to provide you with the right lending product for your circumstances and is not tied into any one lender in particular which means you get the best deal!

Richard Horsnell of Foremost Financial (St James’ Place) is your man here. He’ll listen to your needs and provide you with helpful no-obligation options. Call him on 07500 069647 or email him at richhorsnell@foremostfinancial.net

Get that ball rolling!

Maintenance

Just how difficult is it to find reasonably priced, efficient and quality maintenance and building contractors these days?

Trust us, with over 60 properties currently professionally managed we have, over time, cherry-picked the very best contractors who we recommend for all those odd jobs. From tiling to facia boards, gardening, timberwork and damp treatment to full property refurbishments we have a book of skilled, responsive people ready to help you out with whatever your needs are.

Too many sellers struggle to sell their property because they feel their buyer will take on the maintenance jobs they just don’t want to do. This hurts them in time to sale and price achieved. Preparing your property for market properly and addressing issues big or small increases the time to offer and in most cases strengthens that offer considerably!

Here are some of the most common requests for contractors we get:

Removals

Whether it’s a man with a van or a professional moving firm you’ll need to plan ahead and make sure your possessions are in safe hands. You can only really book a removals when you have exchanged contracts, often they ask for a holding deposit and it’s only on Exchange of contracts that you have a moving date set in stone and the confidence to book these professionals.

There are plenty of great movers out there but we’ve had some really great feedback from clients who have used Weston and Edwards as well as Schofields.
