Selling your property with Birmingham Housing

At Birmingham Housing, communication is key when it comes to keeping landlords informed of every stage of property sale.

To book a valuation, landlords can fill and submit the online form at the website. Our experts can recommend you the asking price and marketing strategy that will maximise interest and offers.

Some agents tend to suggest inflated asking prices in order to secure your business but the fact is your property could remain unsold for a long period and with the lack of interest from buyers, you'll probably end up accepting lower offers than the actual price of your property.

From setting the right price to negotiating the best offer, to liaising with solicitors - selling a property can be complex process, the reason most landlords prefer to use an estate agent to sell their property.

Using Birmingham Housing, we make sure your advertised property reaches local buyers in Birmingham and the West Midlands.

We do accompanied viewing either during office hours or in the evening, including weekends. Once a prospective buyer views the property, we invite them to fill and submit an online offer on the website.

Prospective buyers must provide proof of ID to comply with the Money Laundering Regulations 2017 and proof that they have sufficient personal funds to make up the deposit.

An offer cannot be submitted to the landlord without viewing the property.

Usually we send every new offer to the landlord. Whether they accept or reject an offer is their choice.

Once the landlord accepts an offer, they will need to instruct a conveyancer to set out the particulars of the sale and send the buyer’s conveyancer a draft contract. At this stage our job is to liaise with the landlord, the solicitors and the buyer throughout the process.

The next stage is exchange of contract once the buyer’s mortgage offer is received and the conveyancer is satisfied with the responses to the enquiries raised and a set date for completion.

The contract must be signed by both parties and the buyer must pay a non-refundable deposit - usually 10% of the purchase price.
