Advice for Sellers

Your property is likely the most expensive thing you own, so you need an agent you can trust. Archers Estates offer honest, practical and friendly advice when selling your property. Our team are dedicated professionals with a passion for property.

We pride ourselves in being approachable while offering sound advice at every step of the journey from initial valuation right through to completing the sale.

We are available in branch, on the phone and even in the comfort of your own home to discuss valuations along with marketing strategies that will work best for your particular property and your personal needs.

How much is it worth?

The first step in selling your home is establishing its true value. Property unlike many tangible assets doesn’t have a fixed price and is essentially worth what a buyer is prepared to pay for it and there is no fixed formula that can be used to calculate its value. Instead we must consider a number of factors including size, location, decorative condition, structural condition, competition from other sellers and local demand.

To assist in this we employ comparable evidence and compare what has sold within close proximity and make adjustments for size, age and current market conditions to name a few. Over and above this we need to rely on our local knowledge and experience to advise you professionally as to a realistic sale price. This service is available free of charge at your home at a time to suit you.

Presentation is Key

When showing potential buyers your home you are not merely selling the bricks and mortar but the lifestyle that goes with it. To this end it is important to make sure that the whole house is clean, organised, free of clutter and smells. Consider if it is in your interests to invest in some decorating or general maintenance around the property before placing on the market. At the time of the FREE VALUATION we will be pleased to pass on any recommendations that may be of help.


With today’s modern busy lifestyles it is important to accommodate potential purchasers at a time that is convenient to them. It is preferable to show people round during daylight hours so the exterior or the property and garden can be inspected also however this is not always practical. We are very happy to assist with accompanied viewings if you are not available and will be happy to show people round on your behalf at no extra cost.

Be realistic

By appointing Archers Estates as your professional agent we are duty bound to act in your best interests. Our primary concern is to achieve a sale at the highest price in a timescale that fits your requirements. If you need to move more urgently for whatever reason we may need to reflect this in asking price. Likewise if you receive an offer from a purchaser in a strong position such as a cash buyer or somebody not in a chain then they may ask you to accept a reduction in your price. Although this can often be disheartening it can sometimes be beneficial as it will put you in a good position to negotiate a discount on your onward purchase. Our professional team are always available to discuss this with you and advise you accordingly.
