Residential Sales – Selling Your Property

On average, it took Casey Kennedy Estate Agents 29 days from launch to ‘sale agreed’ and another 105 days for the legal conveyancing process, giving a total of 134 days, according to our 2023 statistics. We foresee the same lead times for 2024.

Add in the time prior to launch to prepare a property for sale, and you could be looking at a total of close to 6 months. It can happen quicker. Last year, we ‘sale agreed’ 4 properties after only one viewing.  

Most of the conveyancing delays are due to issues on the seller’s side, which are not acceptable to the buyer’s solicitor, who is now legally required to sign off on the title before a purchase can be registered.

If you have a proactive solicitor and your paperwork is in order, the conveyancing can be done in 4-6 weeks.

With Casey Kennedy Estate Agents, delays due to funding issues on the buyer’s side are very rare, as we verify funding prior to accepting an offer.

Delays can occur due to problems with extensions or modifications to the property, fire safety issues, boundary issues, incorrect local property tax valuations, etc… 

Where a property is part of a multiple unit development (subject to an annual service charge) there can be additional delays obtaining the required paperwork from the management company and resolving any matters arising.
