High Street Or Online Agent?
Why Should I Use A High Street Agent?
We strongly believe here at Taylor Made that you get what you pay for when selling your most valuable asset. From instruction of your property we are able to go through an extremely lengthy list of applicants and obtain viewings on your property. A few of our Vendors find that offers are received on their property before we even get their property online, we know our market place! In addition to this we receive many applicant enquires from online-portals such as Rightmove. our highly trained staff are able to sort through the most proceedable applicants to find you a sale faster with a firm offer. However, our real strength is after a sale has been agreed as this is where we come into our own. Our fall through rate is minimal as we assist in detail with all sales-chasing matters right through to completion keeping you informed every step of the way. We also recommend excellent local solicitors that have been tried and tested with us before.
Why Do High Street Agents Sales Chase And What Is Involved?
We believe a good Estate Agent constantly knows what is going on with each sale in their pipeline and that each vendor and purchaser are fully updated with the whole moving process and when they are likely to exchange contracts. Unfortunately in most sales, there are many hurdles to overcome such as survey problems, re-negotiations, dealing with absent Freeholders and simply agreeing time-frames for moving. Many of these, can be sorted with high communication levels and time provided to both Vendor and Purchaser, but there is certainly a skill involved in dealing with these problems, that we have acquired over time that unfortunately online firms may not be able to. The unfortunate sales which cannot be salvaged are put back on the market immediately without hesitation unless our client asks otherwise, however this is rare.
What Happens If My Property Doesn’t Sell With An Online Agent?
Properties placed on the market may not sell for many reasons if you instruct the wrong company initially. This may be a factor of reasons but generally the price may be too high for the location or the property may not be marketed in an efficient way. Taylor Made are able to give weekly updates to Vendors and the best advice on what to do if the interest isn’t as high as it should be. We work on a no-sale no-fee basis and therefore have extremely high motivation levels, from marketing, to completion and obtaining the highest price for you is in our best interest. If you would like some advice please feel free to call the appropriate office. You must check any contract you have signed before instructing us as you may be liable to pay two commissions, however, in many cases we can work alongside an online-agent and act on your behalf.
Why Does Having An Office Benefit My Property Sale?
Taylor Made are a progressive company and therefore are fully utilising the internet and modern technology to market you home. However, having an office is still an extremely important factor when it comes to effectively marketing your home and offering you maximum exposure. The significant difference with “bricks and mortar” estate agency is the sales manager and their team’s local experience and knowledge. This is paramount. We have three prominent offices in central Bournemouth, Southbourne & Winton. We register a good deal of buyers from London & the Home Counties who come into the office to register and ask questions about the local area, where to buy / invest and just general information about the market place in Bournemouth & Poole. There is only so much information you can find on-line. Our Bournemouth Town Centre office is also able to offer off-road parking for any clients who wish to come in to discuss their property needs and our Southbourne and Winton offices have ample parking facilities around. We are able to offer advertisement for your property across all three of these offices and therefore maximising exposure to clients who still prefer to use offices for their search.
