Selling your property - Frequently asked questions
Do Wilsons charge to visit my property to provide a sales appraisal?
This service is entirely free. We will also, if required, offer advice relating to your particular plan together with ideas to best present your property and garden.
What is the ideal time to put my property up for sale?
From March to September, sellers enjoy longer and warmer days that create the perfect backdrop for selling their property. However, at our agency, we understand that people's plans don't always align with the seasons. That's why we list and sell properties in the Taunton area throughout the year, no matter the season.
What is the method used by Wilsons to determine the price of a property?
The determination of a property's value involves assessing recent prices for similar property types and considering supply and demand factors. In addition, location, condition, and additional features, as well as the seller's specific timeline and preferences, all influence the valuation.
How can I optimise the presentation of my property for a successful sale?
At the top of the to-do list is clearing out and simplifying. Take a room by room approach and do your best to spruce up each space. Keep animals out of the way, switch on some lights, add some fresh flowers, and consider brewing a pot of coffee to enhance the ambiance. The initial impression is crucial, so consider if your front entrance requires a fresh coat of paint or if your windows need cleaning. Additionally, evaluate if your lawn requires a trim or edges need tidying up. When uncertain, seek the point of view of an honest friend or neighbour for their input.
Do I need to display a Wilsons 'For Sale' sign?
Absolutely not, but their continuous presence as on-site advertising is incredibly beneficial. They operate around the clock, seven days a week, and their presence certainly motivates many of our sales.
Who will be responsible for carrying out the viewings?
The decision is yours. We are happy to conduct the viewings for you upon request. Some sellers prefer to conduct the viewings themselves, while others entrust us to show buyers around when they are not available. The identity of the viewing personnel has little impact, as buyers are likely to
Once I've made the decision for Wilsons to market my property, what is the usual timeframe for them to begin the process?
Typically, we complete our work within a week of receiving instructions. Our team moves swiftly and effectively, but there may be delays due to inclement weather that affects the quality of our photos. We can tailor our pace to meet your deadlines - if there is no need for urgency, we will work at a more comfortable pace, but if time is of the essence, we will work as quickly as possible.
Will I be required to sign a long-term agency contract?
Often, agents require you to sign a binding agreement committing you to their services for 12, 16, or even 20 weeks. However, our goal is for you to remain with us because you are satisfied with the service we provide, not because you are obligated by a lengthy contract.
