Our 12 Step Sales Process
There is never a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to selling a commercial property asset: just as each property is different so too is the approach that’s required.
Because of this, we are really flexible and fluid in our approach. What we’re really saying is that when you talk to us about your property disposal, we examine your particular set of circumstances and create a bespoke service just for you.
Selling a property is very often a life changing decision. It’s vital, therefore, that you like and trust the property agent whom you choose to sell your property.
This is where we excel. First, we’ll meet so that we can listen to and understand your needs. We’ll then go do our homework, value your property, and meet to discuss available options. There is no obligation to take it any further at this initial stage, and furthermore, there is no charge.
Once you’ve decided you’d like BV Commercial to sell your property for you, we’ll agree our fee, as well as a marketing budget. At this stage we will also agree the method and timing of the sale so that everyone knows what is happening and when.
You’ve given us your business but now well need to commission professional photographs, to help show your property in the best possible light.
Our photographer will arrive at your property, at a time that’s pre-arranged with you. In advance of this, our team will email you some top tips for having your property photographed. This will help to ensure that your property is looking its very best in all marketing literature that we produce and distribute.
By law, your property must have a Building Energy Rating (BER) before we can list it for sale or lease. We can arrange this service for you at a nominal fee. Please click here to access the SEAI website which gives detailed information.
With photography, property valuation, and on the ground research of the market complete, we will now produce a beautiful, sales-focused brochure that captures the essence of your property. Even more importantly, we’ll make sure this gets sent to our entire database of potential buyers.
We’re ready to go! First we’ll upload your property to the best property websites. Once your property is listed and live online, we’ll then advertise it in relevant media. Depending on the property and the audience, this will involve a combination of local newspapers, flyer drops, email campaigns to relevant target databases, and of course national newspapers / weekend supplements.
Because of our strong customer service and hard work ethos, we are available to show your property anytime – and well after most agents have gone home. And don’t worry, we’ll always give you plenty of notice of impending viewings and update you after each one so that you’re not left in the dark.
Great, we’ve got an offer! At this stage we’ll negotiate to get you the very best price possible. And because we love knowing that we’ve got the best deal possible, we will never settle for second best.
Once we get a sale agreed, we’ll accept a booking deposit from the buyer and send your solicitor a sales advice note, detailing the transaction. Your solicitor will then prepare the Contract for Sale and forward it, along with the title deeds, to the buyer’s solicitor.
The buyer will generally instruct a building surveyor to inspect the property and inform the buyer about any defects that have been identified within the property. This process can take a number of hours to complete but we can assure you it is time very well spent.
Next, the buyer signs the contract. This is then sent back to your solicitor – together with the deposit – which is usually 10% of the agreed price, less the booking deposit. You’ll then sign the contract in the presence of your solicitor, meaning the sale is now binding on both parties.
Both solicitors have further legal work to do at this stage of the process. As a result, a lull will ensue, as the excitement of the sales process quietens for a period of time. However you can rest assured that even during this quieter period, we will keep in contact with both solicitors and keep you informed every step of the way.
