How can I sell my property?

To ensure you get the best price when selling your property, we offer two popular selling methods. We will work closely with you to understand your needs before advising you on the best method for selling your house.

  • Estate Agency


    This is also known as the private treaty selling method and it’s the most well-known and popular option in the UK.

    • Buyers view your property at agreed times
    • Allows buyers to view the property as soon as it goes on the market

    Open House

    If you opt for the traditional estate agency method, you also have the option of an Open House. This is the preferred choice for many sellers because:

    • You only prepare your home for viewings once
    • You benefit from the additional marketing of an Open House event
  • Auction

    Selling property at auction, either online or traditionally, is a fast and effective alternative to private treaty. It works really well if you have to sell within a set time period, or your home is particularly unique.You may also achieve a better price, particularly if your property needs refurbishment.

    The benefits of selling property at auction:

    •  Contracts are exchanged on the day of the auction
    •  Instruction to exchange can take as little as four weeks
    •  All interested buyers bid publicly for the property or land
    • Your property is promoted to the UK and beyond through a comprehensive marketing campaign 

Romans Caversham sold our house quickly for a price we were happy with and then found a property that was exactly what we were after and within our budget. We couldn't ask for more than that. Great service throughout.

I inherited a flat in Bath but live in West Sussex. This had been let but more recently vacated and then cleared, cleaned and sold during the COVID-19 pandemic. Without the help and professionalism of the staff at Romans, and in particular Emily and Porschia, who went over and above the call of duty to make things happen, I don't know how I would have managed it. As it is, the flat is due to complete next week and I have not had to make one trip to Bath. Thank you so much both of you for all your assistance. Top class!

We had a great experience selling through Romans High Wycombe. A big thanks to Stephanie, Callum and the team. Even through the months of COVID lockdown Stephanie was always responsive and we felt that she was truly invested in getting our sale through.

9 key steps to selling your home


Step one: Property valuation


One of the first and most important tasks is to obtain an accurate valuation from an experienced local agent who knows the local property market and can provide a recommended sale price and time scale that suits your needs. Get a valuation

organise finances

Step two: Organise your finances

Organising how much you can borrow early on will give you a better idea of what you can afford to buy next and also how much you need to sell your home for in order to move.

Get mortgage advice

marketing property

Step three: Marketing your property

When going on the market, promoting your property through website placements, prominent branch displays, and calling buyer databases can help you get the right offer.

Virtual Viewing

Step four: Virtual Viewing


Using the very latest technology, prospective buyers are now able to view your home from the comfort of their own home, on an accompanied virtual viewings. These are hosted online by one of our skilled agents and means we will only book physical viewings with buyers who are genuinely interested.

Step five: Physical Viewings


We would accompany all buyers on your behalf but if you are hosting viewings yourself remember to highlight all the good points that are not immediately obvious.

Listening to buyer feedback can help you find quick wins to make your property more attractive to others.


Step six: Negotiation


We will act on your behalf to negotiate with the buyer to get you the best price, offering advice based on their position (e.g. cash buyer, chain free) and your position (e.g. upsizing, downsizing).  You should never feel pressured to accept an offer.

Step seven: Instruct a conveyancer

Once an offer has been accepted you should appoint a conveyancer, or property solicitor to ensure the legal process for the transaction goes smoothly.

exchange contracts

Step eight: Exchange of contracts

The legal exchange of contracts is where a non-refundable deposit (normally 10% of the purchase price) is transferred over to your conveyancer. At this point both parties are bound to go through with the transaction or you’ll lose your 10%.


Step nine: Completion


On completion day your money will be transferred and your buyer will be able to move in to their new property (approximately 1-2 weeks after the exchange of contracts).
