Case Studies. Canterbury Close, Heaton with Oxcliffe

Posted on Monday, August 22, 2016

This weeks success story looks at a property in Heaton with Oxcliffe.  This client had tried to sell with an online agent.   Whilst they in theory found a buyer,  our house owner was about to discover that finding a buyer is only a small part of the job..... If you want the best price for your home, it pays to use a local agent!

Property History

Mr Houghton came to us as had been on the market and had a bad experience with an online estate agent. He was on the market with the agent for a total of 18 weeks. An offer was made on the property but a combination of the seller circumstances and poor advice given, meant the sale could not proceed.


Our Solution

We tailored a package for the seller and gave bespoke advice to enable us to advertise the property at a higher price than what the seller had previously been asking.  We prepared an in-depth brochure which as well as being advertised on both Rightmove and Zoopla, was also advertised in the local newspapers, in our main high street office and on social media


The Result

Our home owner accepted an offer on the property within 12 days.   The offer accepted was 97.3% of the asking price and 105% higher than the property was being advertised by their previous agent.  The sale completed 8 weeks later with one very happy seller!
