If this is the first time you have sold a property or you haven't moved in some time, below is a guide to the key stages in the selling process.

Market Valuation

Houses For Sale in Wales will visit your home to assess its value, discuss marketing strategy, fees and terms of business.


Before starting your property search speak to a mortgage advisor to confirm what your budget is. The advisor will assess your financial circumstances and commitments and suggest the most suitable mortgage options. You can then obtain a mortgage agreement in principle and start your property search.

Going on the Market

You will need to agree on the marketing price of your property and sign our agency agreement. We will then take photos and measurements of your property ready to begin marketing.

An Energy performance certificate (EPC) is a certificate that shows in detail the energy performance of a building. It is a legal requirement if you are selling or letting your home to have an EPC although there are a number of exceptions.


Houses For Sale in Wales will advertise your property extensively. As soon as the details are put on our systems we will match them to prospective buyers on our database and generate viewings. We will also advertise your property on the major property portals including Rightmove, Zoopla, Primelocation, and on our own website, A For Sale Board will be erected at your property (with your consent) and it will be displayed in our High Street offices in both Cardigan and Newcastle Emlyn.

If your property has land we will also market your property (with your consent) via our sister company The Smallholding Centre (free of charge) and if you have 3 acres and above we will provide further marketing exposure via UK Land And Farms via The Smallholding Centre.


We can provide a list of suggested local solicitors (we do NOT receive any introduction fees for doing so). We do advise instructing a solicitor as early as possible so that when you accept an offer everything is in place, speeding up the whole process.


Prospective buyers will view your property, by appointment through Houses For Sale in Wales. Please ensure your home is presentable before every viewing. First impressions really do count, with most buyers forming an opinion within the first 15 seconds on entering a property.

Receiving Offers

We will communicate all offers made by telephone and in writing. We will work to negotiate between you and the buyer to arrive at a sale price that you both agree to. Consider all offers and accept the one you are happy with.

Confirmation of Sale

Once an offer is agreed we will prepare a Memorandum of Sale which provides details of the property, agreed sale price, name and address of yourself and the buyer and your solicitors. This is then sent to all relevant parties.

Legal Work

On receipt of the Memorandum of Sale a draft contract will be prepared by your solicitor and sent to the buyer's solicitor who will make preliminary enquiries and conduct local and land registry searches. If no further enquiries are needed the buyer's solicitor will approve the contract. We will manage sales progression in our office, making regular contact with all parties so that queries are dealt with quickly and customers are kept fully up to date.

Exchange of Contracts

When all the legal paperwork is prepared and a formal mortgage offer has been received, the contract is signed by both buyer and seller and a deposit is paid. This is a formal binding contract committing you to buy the property. At this stage, a date for completion will be suggested.


Congratulations! On moving day, once we have confirmation that completion has taken place, we can hand over the keys so that you can move into your new home!


  • "Thankyou so much for the excellent service" To the whole team, thankyou so much for the excellent service you gave us on selling our home. You were brilliant right the way through. Thankyou"S Andrew and Julie Strong - Blaenporth, Cardigan
  • "You are consummate professionals !" Forgive me taking so long to send this, but life/moving House has been a full time job lately. We felt very strongly that we wanted to send a message of thanks to everyone at Houses for sale in Wales. Changing estate agents after a year was a big decision, but turned out to be the best decision we have made. From Bill who was so knowledgeable and gave us confidence, to Diana - ever the professional but helped us smile even when things didn’t seem rosy, Hannah- unflappable, capable and friendly, and the lovely Nicola who took a personal interest in the sale of the house, and celebrated as much as we did ( well almost!) You are consummate professionals, and clearly know your trade, and the housing market very well indeed. What I didn’t expect was the care and concern you showed us personally, and the enthusiasm and drive you all displayed in getting viewings....which of course led to an offer which led to our sale. I cannot speak highly enough of you all, and of the way you conduct your business. Please accept our grateful thanks and very best wishes for the future."S James & A Dutton - Penparc, Cardigan
