Property History

Not everybody moves because they want to.  For some it down to circumstance as was the story of our client from Windermere Road.  Our job is to get the best price.  Everybody wants the best price.  Sometimes thought it’s really needed to help people move on with their life.  Hence when we value properties we choose not to be swayed by the price they paid but ultimately, by what they have done to the home and how it compares in today’s market.

Interestingly this lady had 3 valuations. The price variation between the estate agents was over £20,000 difference, a considerable amount of money to anybody!



What we did

The first thing did was listen.  Everybody has a moving story,  a reason as to why we are there.  Next we had to justify our valuation.  We were considerably higher than what she had paid for the property however our client had done considerable work to it since purchase, not all of which was obvious to the naked eye!

Upon instruction, we prepared a great set of details with some fantastic photos highlighting the key selling features.  The weather may have been warm, but we still insisted the wood burning stove was lit.  We had the stable door open for the kitchen shot and captured the greenery that surrounded the home.

The next job was to contact the registered buyers we knew would be interested. We still of course launched it online, just to make sure we got the best price for our client.



The result

Viewings were quickly booked.  Multiple offers were made.  Best and final offers were made.  We agreed the sale £2000 above the asking price, such was the demand for this home.  Even better, we were able to help our client find a fabulous new house, one which she was really happy with, and one which she could call home!
