You’ll receive weekly updates on the progress, and a high level of communication with all parties – vendors, surveyors, solicitors and any other estate agents in the chain. Should any problems arise in a chain, we’ll also help resolve them. Put simply, we’re on your side.


Consider your requirements: Think about the area you’d like to live in, the price range, type and condition of a property, catchment for schools, parking, number of bedrooms, public transport if needed, and whether you want a garden.


Start your search: If looking within the NE25-NE30 postcodes, search our site for the best properties! Looking out of area? Check leading Internet sites such as Rightmove or On The Market, and register with local estate agents. If registering with Embleys, please remember to provide lots of details about your buying requirements so we can match your desires accurately.


View any matched properties: Before arranging a viewing ask yourself a simple question – does the property match my criteria? If not, is it really worth viewing? If yes, then go prepared with a list of possible questions to ask vendors or agents.


Arrange second viewing: The property has grabbed your attention and given you butterflies; that’s a great sign. Now’s the time to address any queries or concerns you may have. Tip: arrange the second viewing at a different time of the day from the first time viewing.


Put offer forward to agent: Provide as much detail regarding your position as possible i.e. 1st time buyer, cash buyer, whether you are also selling, therefore in a chain. You’ll also need to forward a copy of your Mortgage in Principal.


If offer accepted, instruct a solicitor and provide identification: If none are recommended to you, we can suggest a local solicitor. The ones we work with are very proactive and offer excellent customer service. Before making your selection, ask them for a quote on their fees, stamp duty and searches. Once chosen, pass the solicitor’s details to the estate agent selling the property. You will also be required to provide photographic identity to the estate agent, which has been certified by a professional, this can be for example a passport or drivers licence.


Here at Embleys when you have an offer accepted you are provided with a dedicated sale progression manager who will liaise with your chosen solicitor and any other agents involved, if there is a chain. This is to help and guide you, along with getting the sale through as swiftly and smoothly as possible.


Contact your financial adviser or mortgage company: You’ll need to provide them with your solicitor’s details and the property details.


Exchange and completion: With your mortgage in place, the paperwork signed by you and the seller, and the survey passed, your solicitors can now exchange paperwork. Prior to completion, you’ll have to sign the final documents and arrange fee payment to your solicitor. Great news – the property is now yours!

We often get asked what’s the secret of our success?

The answer: We never overpromise, we never oversell, we just go over and above to give our customers the best possible experience.

A key difference with Embleys is our approach to negotiation. We don’t hound, that’s not our style. We just think smarter at every stage of a deal. Take The Embleys Accompanied Viewing Service as a great example. By choosing to have one of our team escort potential buyers around your property, we will ensure they see your home through our eyes, not theirs – and you’ll be astounded by the difference that can make.

Many that come to us are repeat customers, and in our industry that speaks volumes about our caring and considered approach. But being nice to our customers doesn’t mean we’re a soft touch when it comes to selling a property. In fact our team have built a fantastic reputation for achieving great sale prices, and in a faster timeframe than expected.
