ND Estates has been helping people buy and sell homes since 2009. I have been in the conveyancing world since 1981, when I started at a local law firm as a very young junior conveyancer. So we have the experience you need in buying and selling property.

Know what you want.
If you've decided to buy or sell in Jersey, then one of the first steps you need to make sure you know exactly what you want. This will help you narrow down your search and find properties that fit your needs. One of the first steps is to register with an Estate Agent to see what there is on offer and properties that may suit you.

Find out how much it's worth.

It's not enough just to know what you want; you also need to know how much your home is worth. There are several ways to determine the value of a home. One of the easiest methods is to use our online form to book a free verbal valuation with us. We will attend with you at your home and then send you details of what we think the value of your home will be in the current market.

Understand the process.

If you're buying a home, there are certain steps you must take before you make any offers. First, you'll need to find out what kind of mortgage you qualify for. This will depend on your income, credit score, and other financial details and upon which a financial adviser can give you advice. Once you've found the right loan, you'll need to decide whether you want to purchase with cash or through a mortgage. There are several mortgage brokers in Jersey who will assist you in this process, or you may prefer to go straight to your bank for advice.

Be prepared.

There's no doubt that purchasing a property is an exciting prospect. However, it's also one of the biggest investments you'll ever make. So, it's important to do your research and prepare yourself for the process.

Don't forget you will need legal advice.

If you're buying property in Jersey, there are certain things you need to consider before making any decisions. One of these is getting Jersey legal advice. This will ensure that everything goes smoothly. Lawyers are competitive in their fee quotations, and it is worth telephoning around or emailing the lawyers to find out your costs before buying and selling and deciding upon the law firm you would like to use.
