The process of buying a house with our estate agents in Stone


Both buying and selling a house is a big deal, and the ins and outs can often be confusing or overwhelming, particularly for first time buyers. That's where the expert team of estate agents in Stone come in to help you with moving house. Here's the step-by-step process for buying the house of your dreams...

Step 1: Finding yourself a property

Choosing a new home can be as nerve-wracking as it is exciting, which is why the team of keen estate agents are always on hand to help you narrow in on what you would like, in order to help you discover your new home. With such a variety of choices in your local area, from the grandeur of a mediterranean villa fully equipped with tennis courts and Italian gardens (yes, we're still in Stone!) to this picture perfect home in Yarnfield, Stone, theres no doubt the estate agents in Stone will help you find your perfect home.

Step 2: Putting in an offer on your property of choice

Whether or not it be the current owners asking price, you now offer the owner the amount you are willing to pay for their property, along side any conditions you or the homeowner may have. The average house prices in Stone vary depending on the different house types: terraced houses have an average sold price of around £154,000* whereas semi-detached properties are closer to £150,000*. Our estate agents in Stone will assist you in the choosing and negotiation of this offer, to ensure that you're getting the most out of it.

Step 3: Your offer is accepted!

After your offer on the house has been accepted, your solicitor will over view the legalities, and check for any legal issues regarding the matter.

Step 4: Exchange

At this point, you will pay the deposit on your new home. The gap between the exchange and completing the buying of your new home can be instantaneous or up to four weeks; the team of estate agents in stone will work towards minimising this time so that you can move in as soon as possible!

Step 5: Completion

In exchange for your new house keys, you pay the rest of the money and the property is legally yours! Now all that is left to do is pack up your belongings and move in to your new home!
