19 Mar Chain reaction: take the stress out of buying and selling
I was recently asked what was the biggest property chain I’ve found myself working in?
Well, 3 years ago our office had a chain with 14 properties involved.
That included about 23 buyers, 14 surveyors, 14 solicitors and countless chances for the deals to fall flat. What’s not commonly known is that the average time from sale agreed to contracts exchanged is between 14-16 weeks. Less than 5% of sellers are aware of this and believe it’s much faster. Additionally, the fall through rate typically varies between 20-35%.
We got that deal over the line pretty smoothly with our vendor even saying they felt it wouldn’t have gone through without us.
How did we do it?
Well, a good estate agent will have all the names and contact details of everyone involved in the chain.
Then it’s all about keeping on top of things, regularly chasing solicitors or surveyors, speaking with mortgage companies and liaising with clients. Daily if needs be.
At Anthony Jones, we a have panels of surveyors, solicitors and removal companies we recommend. Not because we get anything out of it. We know without a doubt that they are all honest, efficient, proactive and professional.
We do everything we can to make a chain run as stress-free as possible. It’s usually a lot of hard work but that’s just one of the reasons why we’re regarded so highly by clients we’ve worked for and with.
