Sellers Guide

CB+CO Sales Process

At CB+CO we discuss your requirements with you prior to instruction to fully understand your needs – whether it’s a quick sale or helping you find your next home, we can help you make the right move.

Our property portfolio varies from interior-designed spaces to fixer-uppers and everything in between. Providing a boutique style estate agency service combining traditional methods of selling with cutting edge technology and quality customer service to achieve the best possible outcome for your sale.

Here is an outline of the process and what you can expect from us:

1. Accurate Market Appraisal

Prices from agents may vary, the aim here is to ensure we are targeting a realistic figure. Overvaluing can be common with agents simply trying to win an instruction however this can also be detrimental if the property doesn’t get the initial interest it deserves. CB+CO looks to achieve the highest possible price for our clients by generating as much interest as possible. It’s a win-win!

2. Dedicated and Local Property Experts

With 50+ years’ experience, we have unrivalled local knowledge and expertise of the local property market. You will have a dedicated point of contact who will assist you from start to finish.

3. Instruct

We will need to carry out our due diligence such as ID checks and obtain formal instruction from you in order to market the property. At this stage we can agree how often you would like to be contacted, viewing arrangements and the time frame you are working towards.

4. Solicitor

Instructing your solicitor early in the process can set you up for a smooth sale. In doing this you will have the opportunity to prepare your Sales Pack and avoid any initial delays once an offer has been agreed.

5. Prepare

Buyers spend 60% of their time online looking at the photographs. Hence why presentation & photography is KEY. We will help provide you with presentation advice and arrange any necessary work to prepare the property for photographs and viewings. We will also need to ensure we have an EPC in place, agree pricing strategy and marketing material.

6. Cutting Edge Technology

We have spent a lot of time researching into the best property platforms, technology and proven marketing techniques to promote your property.

7. Marketing

The property will be marketing on the UK’s leading property portals: Rightmove and Zoopla. We will also market the property on the CB+CO website and use campaigns on our social media platforms to target a different type of audience through reels and creative posts.

Our clients also benefit from premium listings on the property portals, meaning your property appears at the top.

8. Viewings

All viewings will be confirmed with you prior to appointment. We will only book viewings in with pre-qualified applications and we will always accompany the viewings unless otherwise preferred. We aim to provide insightful feedback within 24 hours.

9. Offers

All offers will be reported to you by phone and in writing within 24 hours. We aim to qualify all offers by referring the buyer to our independent financial advisor. We will negotiate all offers on your behalf to ensure we achieve the highest possible price.

10. Sale Progression

Once an offer has been agreed we will issue a Memorandum of Sale (MOS) to both your solicitor and the buyer’s solicitor to get the ball rolling on the legal process. Using our high-tech software, we will ensure we keep track of each step and keep you updated to work as proactively as we can to overcome any obstacles and achieve completion.

11. Completion

Once you have exchanged contracts and completed, you will now be able to hand over the keys to the new purchaser. Congratulations!

My husband and I just completed the purchase of our first home in derby. Paul and Jeremy were both fantastic throughout the entire process. They kept us updated consistently and made time to respond to every query we had regarding the property. Their recommended mortgage adviser is very patient and reliable and constantly works with our lawyers to ensure there are no unnecessary delays in the process. I Will highly recommend Curran Birds & Co estate agents for their reliability, efficiency and effectiveness in buying a home..

From bid, to customer service till the very end, Paul and the team have been outstanding. It was a pure delight to purchase from them and they made everything stress free and easy. I would certainly recommend this estate agent to anyone looking to purchase or sell, and they will have my custom again in the future. Its a shame I can only give 5 stars. Thank you so much everyone at Curran Birds + Co!

Recently sold my house with Curran Birds + Co and couldn’t recommend them enough. The process from valuation through to completion was made stress free due to the frequent updates from both Jeremy and Paul. The pictures and marketing of the house was exceptional, resulting in the property being sold within a few days. I will definitely use them in the future when buying or selling my next property.

I've recently purchased a semi-detached house through this team. As a first-time buyer, Paul and Jeremy's patience and guidance throughout the entire process was invaluable to me. They were involved to ensure everything went smoothly and regularly checked in with updates. If you're looking to buy a house, this team is the only THE CHOICE for you.



My husband and I have just sold our house through Curran Birds & Co and can not recommend them enough.

I have dealt with Jeremy Curran few times and every time he has excelled my expectations. I called him a few weeks ago to sell my mother’s house, he was got it on the market and it was sold within a days for more. The whole team at Curran Birds & Co are very friendly and professional, kept me updated throughout. I would definitely highly recommend them to everyone, as I have done already, these guys are genuine. I will not consider any other estate agents for my needs.
