The sale process begins with a free market appraisal of your property.
Selling your property
Our aim is to secure the best possible price for you in the shortest possible time-frame. Our honest, realistic approach to valuations has proven to resonate with vendors. We treat each sale as if it were our own and put every effort into maximizing the price that we achieve.
We conduct hundreds of valuations every year giving us an intimate and unparalleled knowledge of property values.
This is why we consistently achieve the asking price.
Select an estate agent
Your estate agent should have a presence as well as the ability to support you.
Hopkins Ward Estate Agents provide transparency, speed and efficiency with the sale of your property.
First impressions count, making the presentation of your property critical to a successful sale.
Consider addressing any DIY jobs you have been meaning to get done, add a fresh coat of paint where necessary and try to declutter to make rooms appear larger.
Hopkins Ward’s’ professional photographers will then take photographs and produce floor plans.
Find a buyer
To find a suitable buyer your property requires maximum exposure across a range of media.
When you instruct Hopkins Ward Estate Agents to sell your property you will benefit from our comprehensive marketing package; promotion on Daft.ie I Myhome.ie I hopkinsward.ie email & SMS alerts, and representation by our Dublin 8 office. We also have a strong presence on social media which finds buyers through non-traditional medium.
Accompanied viewings mean we can use our expertise to help sell your property.
Our longer opening hours are essential to maximize viewing opportunities for your property.
As soon as a buyer makes an offer we will contact you to communicate full details, plus any special conditions, to help you decide whether or not to accept.
Instruct a solicitor
A successful sale relies on an efficient and experienced solicitor.
Solicitors working in conjunction with Hopkins Ward have been selected for their expertise, speed and efficiency in conveyancing.
Accept an offer
Once you accept an offer we will do the following:
- Prepare a memorandum of sale
- Confirm the agreed price with all parties
- Confirm these details with your solicitor
Your solicitor will send out a draft contract to the buyer’s solicitor who will then carry out preliminary enquiries. At this stage you will also be able to agree on dates for the survey on your property, the exchange of contracts and proposed date for completion.
We will advise you and negotiate on your behalf throughout this process.
There are no legal obligations until contracts are signed.
Completion is when the residual monies (usually 90%) are transferred from the buyer’s solicitor to your solicitor’s account.
Your solicitor will call us when the money has cleared in your account and will inform us to release the keys.
Congratulations, your property is now sold!
"We had the pleasure of working with Ian Hopkins and Robbie Ward of Hopkins Ward Estate Agents. Their professional services assisted us in successfully managing a rental property in Dublin 6. When we decided to sell the property we gladly gave the listing to Hopkins Ward Estate Agents. They priced the property appropriately and communicated regularly with us regarding all showings and negotiations. We recommend Hopkins Ward Estate Agents without hesitation and would encourage any interested parties to look no further when selecting estate agents! We wish Ian & Robbie continued success in all that they do!"

"I engaged the services of Hopkins Ward Estate Agents in relation to the letting and management of my rental property. From their success in obtaining excellent tenants in a very short space of time to dealing with issues promptly when they arise I have been very satisfied with their customer service and have always found both Robbie and Ian to be very friendly, efficient and professional. I would not hesitate in recommending the services of Hopkins Ward Estate Agents and hope to do further business with them in the near future."

"Rented a flat managed by Robbie Ward for nearly five years. Always found him to be personable, kind, reliable, and helpful. I genuinely appreciated his promptness and professionalism, but it was his help in getting the last few things into my car during the move out that will always stand out in my mind. Would highly recommend him for management of rental property. Class act all around."
by Ariana Tenant
“I handed over my house to Hopkins Ward two years ago after they were highly recommended. I had a lot of problems prior to that. Previously I had a lot of different recommendations, but they always brought their problems with them. I gave the Letting and Management to Hopkins Ward two years ago after becoming increasingly furious with the time spent sorting ongoing issues out. To this day it is the best bit of business I have done as I have not had a single issue since. I have recommended them to other contacts of mine who were going through similar issues. In summary it has made my work more manageable and life a lot easier.”
