Find a Property

Selling with us

Selling your home is a big decision, so it's important you get it right.

That is why we've created this quick overview of the various steps involved in selling property, so that you know where you stand every step of the way.

PICKING YOUR MOMENT

Before your property goes on the market, there are a few questions to ask.  Things like, "what kind of homes are selling?" or "what's happening with interest rates, capital gain and rental prices and yields?".

Our team will make sure you understand all these things and have the answers you need before your house goes to market, helping you to maximise your potential to sell your home.  You may like to check out our sold properties to give you an understanding of market conditions.

The best way to get a feel for what your property is worth is by getting a free property appraisal. (link through to request an appraisal)

CHOOSE A SALESPERSON

Your salesperson will expose your property to the marketplace and negotiate with buyers on your behalf, so finding the right person is an important part of the process.  Click here to find a salesperson (link through to Our Team)

WHY CHOOSE CAMBRIDGE REAL ESTATE?

We are Cambridge specialists with a team of 13 experienced residential and rural salespeople, who all live in Cambridge.  All our salespeople are free to introduce their buyers to your property which gives us greater reach and selling power.  This in turn gives your home more exposure and gives you a better chance of getting a premium price.

HOW TO GET YOUR HOME READY TO SELL?

Before you put your house on the market, it's important to know your competition, the market and make sure your house is looking its best.

The art of presenting a property for sale is an important one to master.  Presentation is often the reason that two properties that appear the same on paper, sell for vastly different prices.

FINDING A LAWYER

Before you sell a property, we recommend that you seek your own independent legal advice.  Finding the right lawyer is an important part of the buying and selling process.  Agency, and Sale and Purchase Agreements are legally binding, so consult a solicitor before you sign.

CHOOSE HOW YOU WANT TO SELL

We will help you to work out the best way to sell your property that's right for you and your house.  Find out more about different selling methods and types of agencies.

Top selling tip - you can't sell a secret

The more buyers who know your property is for sale, the greater the opportunity you have to achieve a premium price.

ACCEPTING AN OFFER

By law, all written offers - irrespective of price - must be presented to you.  Our salespeople will be there for advice and will help guide you through the process.  Our salespeople are skilled negotiators and will work with the buyer, on your behalf, to get you the best price possible.

Once your offer has been accepted:

There may be conditions on the offer, such as the buyers being satisfied with a building report.  If so, these will need to be met before the offer becomes unconditional
Once an agreement is unconditional, neither the buyer nor the seller can change their mind.  The buyer must now pay the rest of the purchase price on the settlement day.
We will hold your keys at Cambridge Real Estate until your solicitor advises us, in writing, that the settlement has taken place.
Deposit payments are made by the buyer to the real estate agency.  The agency is required by law to hold the money in an audited trust account and may only release the deposit when legally authorised to do so.

SETTLEMENT

Settlement day is the date on which the balance for the property is paid.  Usually it is the same date as the date the buyer takes possession - the keys - but that is not always the case.  There's a fair bit that goes on between unconditional and settlement, and we will help you understand and work through the process.

You've sold your property.  Congratulations!
