Get a head start in the property market

In this hot market buyers are competing for properties and sales are at an all-time high.

To sell your house well just now quality marketing is essential.

With Hastings Legal you can enjoy the best of both worlds with professional estate agency and personal service.  2022 has seen more sales agreed in a quicker time frame but to make the most you need good presentation, marketing and a sales team that knows the local market and is dedicated to providing a premium service to both sellers and buyers. All our properties can be seen on You Tube with a preview available to subscribers to our Hastings Legal Channel before they appear on the usual property portals and in addition to a walk through video we include drone footage of the property and location- an essential for buyers who are not from this area.

Need to sell to buy?

If you haven’t already put your home up for sale you will not be a preferred buyer in this fast moving market and you could miss out on your desired new home. Understandably sellers do not want to accept a conditional offer and put a halt to viewings only to have the offer fall through weeks or even months later. You may also find  that with competing buyers sellers are increasingly opting to go a closing date although if the offer is good enough to be tempting they might just accept. This is where you need the market knowledge and experience of your local property experts and with 100’s of successful sales agreed so far this year we are well placed to guide you through the property maze.

Ron Hastings says:

“The past year has seen record sales and there has never been a better time to sell in The Borders. I recommend buyers do not delay and get on the market. As a result of pent up demand and increased enthusiasm from buyers looking to move to the Borders properties here are selling fast. However more are coming on market all the time so finding your next move is not as difficult as you might think. The best advice for buyers with a property to sell is to maximise your position and get the most for your property by putting it on the market – don’t just give it away with an online agent or a “private” restricted sale through social media! Remember that while the best price offered is often key for sellers some flexibility on the move date giving them a bit more time could make all the difference. Sellers do not have to accept the highest or any offer and they may prefer a buyer who is flexible on the date and in a good position against a higher offer that is conditional on sale particularly if the buyer is not yet on the market. This is where our expertise comes into play and we will always seeks to establish the buyers position and advise our selling clients  so that they are  fully informed and in control. The move date is also important and with our integrated in house property sales and legal teams it’s easier to keep in touch and also ensure that the right hand knows what the left is doing. We won’t allow you to get legally committed until you are ready with your onward move secured and your buyers qualified and everything in place.”
