Professional photography

It’s so important that your property is presented to the highest possible standard. If the photographs taken aren’t up to scratch it will affect the price you achieve. Our professional photographers are highly trained and use the best possible equipment to produce the highest quality, wide angle shots. In addition, each one is digitally remastered to enhance the look further.

James' tip: "People viewing your home will visualise themselves using the garden. Mow the lawn, cut back any bushes, clean your patio (and furniture) and generally have a good tidy up. A little bit of effort will help show your garden off at its very best."

Honest and transparent pricing

Never pay upfront to sell your home! What might seem an initial saving in costs can often be a loss. With Arden you’ll never pay upfront and there are no hidden charges, surprises or withdrawal fees. You can be sure that we will remain motivated to sell your home until your purchaser holds their new keys.

No long term contracts

Be careful what you sign up for. Our contracts last for 60 days and we don’t believe that any longer is fair.

No sale, no charge

We will never charge you if your house doesn’t sell or you change your mind. Often, circumstances can change, so if you need to withdraw your property at any time, then you are free to do so. Plus, we save your property file with all details, photos and viewings, so we can re-activate your advert at any time in the future, contacting applicants who were previously interested.

Helpful and fully trained staff

You can walk in anytime during our opening hours and speak face to face with one our friendly and helpful members of staff who can offer extensive knowledge of the local area, or simply sit with a coffee looking through our property portfolios at the houses we have available for sale in your own time.

We also work closely with HL Consulting, an independent company, who are able to offer you fully qualified Independent Financial Advisors and whole of market mortgage advice, so you can be sure that you're getting helpful advice in all areas.

Offices in prime locations

All our offices are ideally situated in prominent locations, ensuring your property will be seen in our backlit window display several times a day by constant foot traffic. We also choose prime locations that provide easy access for dropping off and collecting keys, or simply calling in to have a catch up with a member of staff regarding your property’s developments.

LED window displays featured within all our office windows never go unnoticed to passers by, day or night.

Floor plans

Floor Plans create interest and show people how your property fits together. They can also allow potential buyers to access their future plans within your property. In fact, floor plans are so important when it comes to selling property, we include 2D & 3D versions as standard with every property we market. Never under estimate this crucial tool.

Distinctive for sale boards

Your home will never go un-noticed with our highly visible boards instantly attracting buyers to an agent they recognise and can trust. If you invest in our premium marketing package, we’ll include an upgraded ‘swing’ style board to really make your property stand out.

Full colour particulars

We provide you with beautifully presented full colour particulars so that your property is shown off to its full potential. If you choose our premium marketing package we’ll provide glossy, professionally printed brochures for your property.

Accompanied viewings

Viewings work better when a trained member of staff conducts them. Let us take care of the viewings for you and we will endeavor to provide you with feedback within 24 hours.

Sales progression team

Once we’ve sold your house, the case is handed to a specialist in-house sales progressor who will look after your sale all the way through to completion. You will be contacted and updated at least once a week. This ensures a much quicker and smoother journey through the sales process.

Katie's tip: "If you can afford it, I highly recommend using a removal company rather than trying to do the move yourself. It makes moving day so much easier if you can get everything packed and into labelled boxes the night before and let them load it all in. That way, all you have to do in the morning is clean the property once it's empty and drop the keys down to the estate agents."

Help with your onward purchase

We do more than just sell your home. If you need any help or advice with your move we are only a phone call away. As an existing customer, you can ask to be placed onto our preferred buyers list so you get to hear first about the latest properties that suit your needs!

Members of the property ombudsman scheme

Being members of the Property Ombudsman Scheme provides peace of mind that you are dealing with professionals that have your best interests at heart at every stage of the process.

Conveyancing

The successful sale of your property can be dependent on the instruction of an efficient and experienced solicitor. Here at Arden, we’ve done the research and have relationships with some of the best solicitors around. We can provide you with a list of recommendations and quotes from tested and trusted conveyancing solicitors, which may help to avoid delays during the sale process.
