Their specialist lawyers will be able to organise all of the paperwork in respect of the sale, and will ensure that the matter is processed as quickly as possible.

Innes & Mackay understand that the decision to sell your home is a major one, and moving house is often cited as one of life’s more stressful events. But by taking advantage of the skills and expertise of a local estate agent, who can help you market your property effectively, it’s possible to take much of the stress out of selling your home and moving to a new property.

The determination of the value of a property can be a tricky process: everyone will in all likelihood hope to secure a greater price than what they paid for it. The difficulty, however, is that there will be a need for objectivity in determining the value of any given property. In most cases, four things will determine the value of a property:

The health of the local property market;
The condition and standard of finish of your property
The condition and standard of finish of similar properties in the area; and
The sold prices of similar properties in the area

It is on the basis of this information that the ‘asking price’ of a property will be calculated. It is vital that experienced estate agents, who have knowledge of the local area and are able to offer a constructive critique of a property, carry out the valuation in order to determine a realistic asking price.

At Innes & Mackay, we understand the worries that accompany the idea of selling a property. That is why we take such pride in offering a truly comprehensive Estate Agency service to meet our clients’ needs. Our friendly and reliable team will work with you to ensure that you secure the best price possible for your property.
