When it comes to placing your property on to the market, its imperative you chose the right agent from the multitude of choice that is on offer. But what makes a particular agent stand out and why? Well, the foundations of selling a house have not changed for decades, it is how an agent has moved on with technology has changed. These changes ensure your property reaches the widest possible audience, including those who were not initially thinking of moving.
The main aim is to get the best possible price from the most appropriate buyer in the shortest period of time. Sounds easy, but nine times of out ten, a buyer sets out looking for something completely different from what they actually end up buying. That is where highly skilled agents with strong local knowledge come into their own. An Agent who has constant contact with the applicants they have registered will be able to sell them the lifestyle of why your house would suit them.
Naturally, excellent photography takes a great part in this too, but also look for one of the few agents who are offering property films. I know of many occasions when a film has prompted someone who wasn’t necessarily even looking to move to view a property which they then go onto purchase.
At Sowerbys, we have taken filming even further and now regularly produce fully presented area guides that sell the location and all it has to offer too many buyers who perhaps had never considered your location. Not only does this benefit the seller, but also the buyer as we provide them with a true picture of both the property and the location. These location films also benefit the local area by promoting local shops, restaurants, transport links as well as leisure facilities and schooling. What other agent does all this?
If you are looking for a property to purchase or are thinking of making a move yourself, please get in touch with one of our offices.
"I am writing to express our appreciation of the standard of service we received from the staff in your Holt office. We originally chose Sowerbys to market our property because we were impressed by the quality of advertising in the press, in the office and online. We realised from the outset that ours was a niche property and consequently would be unlikely to achieve a quick sale, but throughout the process we were very pleased with the support we were given by Paul and the rest of the Holt staff. There were, at all times, professional, friendly and courteous which made selling our house much less stressful than it might otherwise have been. I would like to make particular mention of Rachel and Lydia with whom we had most contact - they were always very supportive and are a credit to your agency. In view of our experience with Sowerbys, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others. We will visit Norfolk from time to time and will maintain contact with your Holt office as we have come to regard the staff there as friends. Yours faithfully Jay and Lyn Hall"
