Moores Autumn Market Update:
Following one of the busiest spring / summers on record, we are pleased to say that even as we are going into what is normally a quieter market we still have plenty of buyers looking to move to our part of the world from London and the South East, together with a number of local people that we have sold for who can’t find a suitable property. This is having a knock-on effect because people that are considering moving, are concerned to put their own home on the market for fear of not being able to find something!
We have had a great deal of success with off market introductions, sales achieved where we have carried out valuations and then agreed an “under the counter, off market” introduction of a buyer at a reduced fee and this has helped in part to relieve the “log jam” of people not being able to find something. This really is reverting to good old fashioned, traditional agency whilst giving a more personal service; after all – people sell houses not computers! As we go into autumn, it also allows people to have everything ready to then go to the full market in the New Year if off market introductions aren’t successful.
As ever communication is key and by explaining to viewers that our off market instructions will only move when we find them something, it helps to ensure a smooth and hopefully, stress reduced experience. The out of area buyers that we are talking to appreciate that we are The Agents In The Know and that therefore they need to register with us, In addition, they will often pay a premium to prevent a property coming to the full market but our Vendors in a win win situation.
For off market instructions on the run up to Christmas, we are offering fees starting from 0.75% plus VAT. If you would like us to come and talk to you about our unique service which operates on a NO SALE / NO FEE basis, then please do call us.
