There are many facets to a property valuation. What is important is that you are fully briefed on all of them. No two properties are the same, nor are any two valuations. The manager tasked with providing you with a detailed valuation will fully understand your property and your needs before also considering and commenting on the following.
- How similar property sales compare to yours locally.
- Positive and negative attributes of your property from sold properties.
- Any potential for development, extension or maximising appeal.
- Demand for your property
- The type of buyer the property will appeal to.
- Other factors such as local schools, transport links
- The current market.
If your agent does not consider all of these factors you may be in for a rough ride, undersell or worst of all not achieve a sale. We consider that the best sales are formed out of a good and thorough valuation.

How is Alexander May’s Marketing Different
Professional Photography for property sales
The best pictorial presentation of your property is essential. Yes we can all take a good photo but once you have seen the difference a professionally photographed property makes to your marketing material you will probably agree with us. Follow the link below for some examples.
Once your property is on the market either to sell or let, we’ll continue to deal with your property in a proactive manner. We will contact you on a regular to discuss things such as interest and feedback from the property launch and viewings. We monitor interest levels so we can give honest advice.
One very important aspect of our service is our commitment to 100% fully accompanied viewings. Managers will show our staff around so we can agree the best way to show your property. You will receive notice from us of all viewings and of course you do not have to accept the viewing. We do pride ourselves on our viewing technique.
Communication is king with the buying process and that is never more important than the conveyancing process. We are here to proactively deal with any issue that arise on your behalf and with your help. We also ensure the process is carried out in a timely manner. Sales progression relies on good knowledge of the property industry as a whole so we take the strain where this is concerned always keeping you fully informed.
Mortgage and Conveyancing Services
Alexander May work exclusively with a whole of market IFA (Independent Financial Advisers) to find our buyers and sellers the best value and suitable mortgage available. Our IFA is trusted and works well alongside our team to achieve any type of funding required. This referral is made in house and ensures that wherever possible finance will be available for your desired home. This service also helps our clients to secure buyers in some cases. Feel free to contact us with any enquiries.
Solicitors & Surveyors
The solicitor managing your sale or purchase is probably the most important person in any transaction. It is not just about the cost (although this is still important) but about speed, accuracy and information. Sales and purchases are affected by these factors. Alexander May will arrange a solicitor on your behalf who has been tried and tested. From our office we will obtain a quotation for the work and get the transaction underway immediately. This is invaluable to both seller and buyer. We have a number of companies we use and in most cases we obtain below market rates for our clients and purchasers.
Whether you need to know if a property is correctly valued or expert advice on a properties condition Alexander May will refer you to an independent but competitively priced building surveyor. In our experience this can also help with planning advice, advice on proposed alterations or potential of any property. Again we manage the referral, pricing and scope to ensure you get the information that is required.
