My Services for Sellers

Are you looking for an estate agent with a small portfolio who will give you her undivided attention from your first conversation to completion; who is congenitally honest; who goes the extra mile for you; who knows all about canals, and homes in canalside villages; who answers the phone at weekends and chats to clients on WhatsApp; who has 4000 members in her canalside homes Facebook group who dream of living by a canal? Perhaps we should talk!

My help begins before you instruct me

I am happy to help with the sale of any home, but I’m best known for selling canalside properties. My services begin with a free property consultation and a professional appraisal of the marketing value of your home. I always conduct a thorough survey of local prices and provide you with a printed report and an interactive online report. This goes well beyond the rebranded Rightmove or Zoopla print-out which you may get from other agents. I am always happy to answer your questions and address your concerns, and if required I will give you advice on presenting your property for the best results.

My Terms

I like to be fully transparent about my fees. I’m not always the cheapest, but I always aim to earn my commission!

The standard fee for a traditional sale is 1.5% of sale price + vat, with a minimum fee of £2,500 +vat.

The standard fee for selling at auction is 2.5% of sale price + vat, with a minimum fee of £2,500 + vat. The fee is shared between BidX1 and myself.

Please call me on 07891 718211 if you would like a chat about selling your property, with no obligation.

Have you considered Auctioning your property?

Auctions are brilliant for sellers looking for a quicker and more secure transaction, or for owners of unique properties which could inspire competitive bidding. My auction partner BidX1 and I work closely together as a team, maintaining a strong relationship with the seller throughout the process. BidX1 offers a transparent, user friendly and secure online platform, suitable for the most inexperienced of buyers. They are ethical and very supportive, with a genuine enthusiasm for working alongside me and my clients. The Canal and River Trust uses the same company, which benefits us all. I recommend BidX1’s auctions over other methods such as the so-called ‘Modern Method’. With BidX1, the seller pays for the preparation of the legal pack in advance of the sale (usually around £450). The seller benefits from my marketing and estate agency services (as listed above), while BidX1’s role is to provide ongoing advice, deal with enquiries, legal pack downloads, and registrations to bid, and manage the auction itself. When the auction is imminent, buyers pay a bidding deposit which is refundable if they do not win. On the day of the auction, buyers bid on BidX1’s online bidding platform. A binding exchange of contracts takes place when the (virtual) hammer falls. The buyer must pay their 10% deposit within 48 hours of making their winning bid, as well as BidX1’s admin fee, usually £1,250 to £2,000 + vat. The purchase typically completes 28 days later. The seller pays their fees from the proceeds of sale (see below).
