There are definite signs of a sustained revival in the UK economy and government schemes connected with property purchase have helped to create a buoyancy that looks set to continue into the foreseeable future. The upshot of this is that there are signs of a scramble for properties, particularly in London and the south-east region of England. Indeed, we are increasingly experiencing cases where the number of potential buyers offering on a single property is approaching double figures. In the light of this, we recommend an alternative route to marketing your property, which is sale by informal tender, commonly referred to as sealed bids.
In simple economic terms, this is our swift response to a supply and demand situation where the latter is now far outstripping the former, something which could be most advantageous to local homeowners thinking of selling in the near future. Selling your property by informal tender through ROFFEYS involves buyers being invited to submit in a sealed envelope their best offer, along with supporting information regarding their financial situation, buying position and other relevant information, on our prescribed bid document by a specified closing date.
All offers remain strictly confidential and immediately following the specified closing date, we will open and qualify the information of all the offers. Once this important task is completed all the offers and supporting information will be submitted to our client for their consideration. Alternatively, we are happy to arrange for all sealed bids to be opened in the presence of our client.
The above procedure follows a period of us marketing your property at a figure we have agreed with you inviting OFFERS IN EXCESS OF the quoted price for a specified period to allow time for it to be thoroughly advertised and viewed by arrangement through ROFFEYS. With reference to viewing arrangements, we strongly recommend that this is carried out through our Open-House viewing days.
Some of the main advantages of selling your home by informal tender may be summarised as follows:
