Frequently Asked Questions

When you move to Brentwood, you’re getting the best of both worlds – the buzz of a popular Essex town combined with proximity to rural life. Thorndon Country Park is one of the star attractions for anyone who enjoys being active, but if you’re looking for retail therapy then Brentwood has all the boutiques and beauty salons that are synonymous with TOWIE. More entertainment options can be found in town including multiple chain restaurants and an active nightlife industry.

Brentwood has so much to offer that you won’t want to leave. But if you do need to spread your wings for work or play, you can use the new Elizabeth line to reach central London at lightning-quick speeds including Bond Street in 45 minutes and Heathrow in 74 minutes.

If you’re travelling by road, you have access to both the A12 and M25, whilst local airports can be found at Stansted and London City within 35-40 minutes.

There’s little surprise that Brentwood is popular with families, not just because of the Gruffalo trail at Thorndon, but also due to the calibre of schools in the local area. Shenfield St Mary’s C of E school is an outstanding primary, while St Helen’s Catholic Junior School Academy is deemed good by Ofsted. Brentwood Ursuline Convent High and St Martin’s are also good secondary schools.

If you’d like to learn more about the local area, our Brentwood estate agents can provide detailed info.

Yes, absolutely. Balgores offers high-quality 3D virtual viewings to potential buyers who are interested in your home. This is convenient for both parties – the vendor doesn’t need to schedule in-person viewings in their diary, and the buyer can view the property multiple times with less pressure than attending a physical appointment.

Virtual viewings are also a great way of funnelling the most eager buyers through to an in-person viewing. Only those house-hunters who enjoyed the virtual tour will attend your property to visit in real life. At this stage, you can be confident that you’re welcoming only serious buyers to your doorstep.

Virtual viewings have been essential during the pandemic and continue to be a sensible way for anyone who is vulnerable or in isolation to move house during uncertain times.

Virtual viewings are just one of the marketing strategies used by our estate agents in Brentwood when we’re selling your home. Learn more about our marketing packages here.

Selling a home is more expensive than buying a property, which is great news if you’re a first-time buyer. If you’re a second-stepper and you’re not sure how property selling works, then you might be wondering about the fees involved in moving on. Our estate agency in Brentwood provides transparent pricing and can put you in touch with our branch mortgage advisor team too.

There are usually three main costs involved:

  • Estate agents' fees – you will pay a percentage of the overall cost of your sale price. So, the higher the offer, the more you’ll pay in fees and the more you’ll receive towards your next property purchase also.
  • Energy Performance Certificate – it is a legal requirement to provide an EPC for buyers so they have a comprehensive overview of the energy efficiency of your home. An EPC lasts for 10 years, so if you’ve lived at your property for less than a decade, you can check to see if the previous owner’s EPC is still valid for your sale.
  • Conveyancing costs – this is the process of transferring the legal ownership of your property to a new buyer. Our estate agents in Brentwood can recommend local conveyancers to handle this for you.
