With modern and prominent offices in Bromley and Beckenham, Homezone are one of the borough’s leading fully independent, owner managed estate agents. We specialise in the sale and letting of residential properties and provide an enthusiastic and refreshing approach to the industry.
Our experienced staff in both our sales and lettings departments, are knowledgeable, local people who are committed to provide the best possible service.
Our strategic marketing ensures that our listed properties receive the maximum possible exposure, we utilize the major property websites, including Onthemarket.com, Rightmove, and Zoopla.
We also access our vast database of registered buyers and tenants looking to find their home within the area.
Selling your property
Our sales service is tailored to your individual needs and our hugely experienced valuation and sales team will clearly guide you through every step of the process – from marketing to viewing, negotiation to completion.
Once invited to value your property, we consider every aspect. Beyond the bricks and mortar, we assess other important factors such as the locality, the availability of green open spaces, local transport links, nearby amenities and schools etc. We are passionate about providing the best possible customer service and we believe this is our edge over our competitors. We are so confident of this that, unlike the majority of estate agents, we choose not to tie our clients into a lengthy contract, therefore leaving you free to stay with us as long as you wish.
Your property would be marketed through the major property websites zoopla.co.uk, onthemarket.com and rightmove.co.uk, and be made available to an incredibly strong applicant database across our branch network. We are members of the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) and the ‘Ombudsman for Estate Agents scheme’ and are therefore bound by the strict rules of conduct ensuring you receive the highest level of integrity.
Prior to marketing, each property requires a compliant Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). If necessary, we will recommend an efficient supplier to you – the process will generally be completed within a few days.
If required, we can also recommend an efficient, reasonably priced solicitor to act on your behalf and deal with the necessary documentation involved in transferring ownership of your property to the new buyer (known as conveyance).
It is often at the point when a suitable purchaser has been introduced, and the property has gone ‘under offer’ that our office based team really come into their own. We will handle everything, from liaising with solicitors, to orchestrating the chain of sales, updating you continuously and carrying out all negotiations on your behalf. This is often the stage at which the hard work begins and we believe it is crucial that the same, experienced team who know your property – and know you – deal with this process.
Letting your Property
