Below is our ‘rough guide’ to selling your property and the services you can expect from Urban Moves.
A ‘Rough Guide’ to Selling Your Property with Urban Moves
Firstly, if you are selling, you will require a valuation. Our experienced property valuers will provide you with an accurate valuation based not only on their in-depth knowledge of the local property market, but also utilising our extensive database of recently sold properties.

Instruction of The Agent/Property Details
Having received your valuation, and provided that you are satisfied with it, we will then proceed to prepare full sales details of your property. Bearing in mind the importance of presentation, we will ensure that your sales details highlight the vitally important aspects of your property and ensure that your home is shown to its best possible advantage with the aid of professional full colour photographs and floor plans.
Once you have seen and approved our particulars of your home, you will then be in a position to receive prospective buyers. Appointments to view your property are made by Urban Moves and all viewings are accompanied by our experienced sales negotiators.
For Sale Boards
This is the most simple and effective marketing tool, available 24 hours a day. Where possible and with the consent of your freeholder, Urban Moves will arrange for a For Sale board to be prominently displayed outside your property.
Office and Window Display
Our prominent High Street window display has been professionally designed to promote your property to its best potential. Professional quality external and internal photographs as well as easy to understand floor plans will be used to optimise exposure to the market place.
Wherever possible, all prospective buyers who register with us are asked to provide email addresses in order to ensure that they are notified of any new properties as soon as possible. Our database contains over 700 applicants actively searching for property, who can be matched against your property and notified within hours of receiving your instruction.
We will contact registered prospective buyers as soon as possible after receiving your instruction and details of your property can be forwarded to any new registered buyers immediately.
Our state-of-the-art website is constantly updated, with full colour details of your home, which means that your property details are available to potentially millions of people, within hours of being placed on the market.
Besides exposure on our own site, Urban Moves will also advertise your property on the industry's leading property websites including:
Rightmove, Zoopla and PropertyFinder.
… and it doesn’t stop there. For maximum exposure, we will also display your property on the some of the most popular destinations on the web, including Google, UpMyStreet, Sky, MSN, Yahoo, eBay, Virgin, Gumtree and UKpropertyshop.
The Sale Process
Any offers we receive are promptly verbally notified and then followed up in writing. Our competent sales team will negotiate between you and your prospective buyer(s) in order to achieve the strongest buyer.
We will inform you of the position of the buyers and liaise with you until an accepted offer has been agreed.
Should you require your sale to be completed by a certain date, this is when you should notify us and we will endeavour to satisfy your request wherever possible.
At this point (if you have not already done so), you will need to instruct a solicitor and, should you require assistance, Urban Moves will only be too pleased to recommend local firms.
The solicitors will then write to all parties and the buyers will instruct a surveyor to conduct a survey of your property (the “agreed sale” is subject to the contract and any survey) and the buyers’ mortgage offer (if required) will also be subject to the results of the survey.
The sellers’ solicitors will request the Title Deeds from the lender (if appropriate) or yourselves as the seller and the Fixtures and Fittings form must be completed at this stage.
The solicitors draw up the Draft Contract which sets of the Terms of the Sale and sends it to the buyers’ solicitor together with all relevant documents. Any enquiries will then be raised, the Title Deeds and Lease (if applicable) will be checked and Local Searches carried out.
Once the draft contracts have been approved, it can be signed by both parties.
Exchange of Contracts
As long as the mortgage offer has been received and cleared funds placed with your buyer’s solicitor, a mutually convenient date can be agreed upon for the exchange of contracts.
The completion and your actual house move can take between 7 to 28 days depending on the buyers, sellers and their respective solicitors.
