Frequent Asked Questions

Hello Tommy – “I am considering selling a home which has been left to myself and 3 siblings. We are all overseas and a little bit confused and stressed by the process of selling a home in Ireland at present. How should we go about this?” Michael , Killorglin

*Thank you for reaching out. Firstly, do no not stress. Secondly, the sales process does not have to be complicated. The first step would be to get a licensed estate agent In the locality who will give you an accurate valuation on the home. If yourself and your siblings are happy with the valuation it is time for your agent to prepare a marketing and advertising strategy to ensure the property achieves the valuation price. I would strongly urge you to contact a solicitor at this stage, prior to going to market, to ensure they have deeds of the home available or requested from the bank so they can draft contracts. They will also outline what paper work you may need such as planning certs. cents of compliance and Revenue related obligations. It Is a good idea to use a solicitor who is not planning on going away on holidays over the next 4 months or so!

Prior to professional photography/videography being carried out I would urge you to have the home decluttered, spring cleaned, minor Issues In the home addressed and If required the cosmetic appearance of the home Improved through painting Internally and having the gardens/driveway tidied up. First Impressions are vital when potential purchasers arrive to view and a certain lifestyle should be portrayed. Your target market varies depending on the type of the home being sold. A BER assessor will be needed to complete a BER Cert to determine the energy efficiency of the home. Once the home Is advertised. viewings will commence and will continue until such a stage that you have received a suitable offer from a willing purchaser who is financed approved whether that be through mortgage approval or cash and they lodge a booking deposit and supply solicitor details. You will then be sale agreed…

At this stage it Is important that your agent keeps In regular contact with the solicitors to ensure there are no unnecessary delays. It will take on average 6 – 12 weeks for the sale to close from this stage – allowing for the purchasers’ surveyor and valuer to call to the home and paperwork to be completed by the solicitors. We would be delighted to give you call to discuss the above In more detail whenever suits yourself and your siblings…
