Looking to sell?

You will either be a property developer selling new units in a development or a private individual looking to sell one of your own properties. In either case, we would be delighted to act as your agent, ensuring that you receive the right buyer at the right price.

Our network of investors are based around the world. They have a range of investment goals. It is our job to know them so well that we only introduce your property to people who are serious about buying and who have the means to do so.

We pride ourselves on complete candour with our clients. From your perspective, this means we will be honest from the very start about what we believe your property is worth, and who is most likely to buy it. We will also make suggestions about how you may be able to raise its value. We are not here to flatter you, but to create realistic and positive outcomes.

If you have a property to sell and would like to instruct us, please contact us.

Guide to selling

When it comes to selling your home it's important to make sure you have an agent working for you who makes the whole process as simple as possible. It's also important to ensure they give you a correct valuation so that your property is sold as quickly and as smoothly as possible.

At Benham and Reeves we work a little differently from estate agents. In fact, we normally have a buyer in mind even before your property appears on our website. We have access to a large network of property investors based all over the world, who are looking for opportunities to buy a property in London either to rent it out long term or use as a second home or to let out as a holiday home. We also have long standing relationships with leading UK developers and this helps us keep on top of market values so you can be assured you get the best possible price for your property.

Although we deal exclusively with the purchase and sale of properties in London, our local and international offices are best placed to provide you with information regarding tax implications if you're based abroad but selling in London.
