Ollie and Liv's journey to selling their home in Cardiff

As featured in our latest issue of Cwtch magazine.

We follow Ollie’s story of selling his two-bedroom Cardiff home as he and Liv move to the next rung of the property ladder...

Ollie contacted three Estate Agents to value his home

Liv and I put our heads together around November [2022] and then reached out [to some Estate Agents]. We did shop around but when I met Nathan [from CPS Homes] I was impressed with his breadth of knowledge of the local market. He was able to back it up with substantial evidence and came well-prepared. Knowing the valuation was backed by house price data helped me and gave Liv a lot of peace of mind.

Capturing your home on camera

Liv was at home when Scott [Head of Media at CPS Homes] arrived. Scott was great at telling us what we needed to do and with our dogs too. We were sat around with family when we got the video and we were both like ‘Wow, this is not what we were expecting, this is completely amazing!”. It was like a mini feature film. We can’t rate Scott highly enough.

The viewings

The communication we had throughout the open house event was great. We’d speak regularly and Nathan would give us advice on preparing our home. I personally found it really convenient because you could get the house looking nice for just one day of viewings. It was an early start, but I think that was because of the volume of viewings.

The first offer

That’s the reaffirming moment. Nathan let me know the first offer had landed and I got an automated email whilst the viewings were taking place. Nathan and his colleagues made understanding the buying positions of offers really easy. Having their counsel was so useful.

Moving on

Being able to lean on Nathan’s understanding of the local market was a useful sounding board for finding our new home. I was keen to keep the communication as free-flowing as possible between us and the buyer. Chelsea [Sales Progression Manager at CPS Homes] was great at facilitating that and keeping it chugging along. It’s been a very easy process.

Thanks to Ollie and Liv (and of course their gorgeous Golden Retrievers Ottis and Fig) for letting us share their story of their sales journey so far. If you’re thinking of selling your home, get in touch with Nathan and the team today on 02920 454555 or email nathan.walker@cpshomes.co.uk.
