Selling a House in Eastbourne?

Southdown Surveyors provide a professional residential sales service with competitive fees to clients in Eastbourne and Sussex. Whether you are selling your family home, flat, bungalow or apartment, we have the expertise and local knowledge to coordinate an efficient and stress-free sale from start to finish.

How to sell your house successfully:

Preparing for viewings

When preparing a property for viewings it is important to ensure that it is presentable and tidy. Southdown's experienced team will be on hand to give any recommendations for dressing a property, from displaying flowers and pictures to painting a wall or moving furniture around. We like to think that potential buyers can look past a bright yellow wall, but the truth is that not everyone can. 

The marketing commences

We believe that properties’ best features need highlighting, therefore we will always point out character features such as bay windows, contemporary kitchens, high ceilings, picture rails, spotlights and much more. Our details are in-depth and offer floorplans, room measurements and any applicable leasehold information. Providing as much information as possible at the start will decrease the chance of there being any hidden surprises throughout the conveyancing process.

Behind the Scenes

It is a common mis-conception that once a sale is agreed estate agents ‘sit back and relax’ when in fact the other half of the job starts. We need to ensure that all solicitors have clear communication and to keep all parties informed of any updates throughout the process. We will carry out regular sales progression and liaise with solicitors, other estate agents and both the buyer and seller to ensure everyone is up to date and the sale is progressing as smoothly as possible. We are also available for advice and to offer a helping hand where your solicitor may not be able to, from recommending removal companies and mortgage advisors to arranging completion dates between parties.

What are the costs of selling a house?

Every property is unique and so too is every sale. This is why we offer our clients a choice of three different sale packages, ranging from our Absolute service to our Advanced option, on to our Complete premier service.

All three offer high quality photographs, floorplans, a bespoke personalised brochure, access to our professional and pro-active team, advertising on our website, social media pages and Rightmove. Our more more detailed packages offer the options of out of hour viewings, premium property listings and a property launch open day.

We have a package to assist everyone with the costs of selling a house. Contact us today to go through your requirements, timescales and budgets and start your journey to completion. To see our current properties for sale in Eastbourne and East Sussex, please visit our sales page on Rightmove.

My wife and I used Southdown Surveyors during a recent potential house purchase. We had agreed a price on an older, character property and felt it best to fully assess the area and the property. We are both mightily pleased we engaged Southdown’s help as they flagged up some very serious, unseen defects in the property. As inexperienced first time buyers we would have been left having bought a seriously defective property with largely no sell on value and a huge bill simply to make habitable.

Southdown Surveyors were extremely professional, diligent and very helpful. They provide a thoroughly detailed breakdown of the property they survey, from little things like nearby trees that might invalidate house insurance to highly detailed information on the structure and wellbeing of the property.

I think in some cases there might be a tendency on the house buyer’s end to avoid engaging a full survey but with what we have experienced I would strongly advise anyone looking to buy a property to engage a thorough, proper survey. The outlay in doing so is relatively minimal and when you are making such a large financial, and life investment, having professionals on your side, and ones who will help you as Southdown Surveyors did for us, is absolutely invaluable.
