Weekly Update 4th November 2015

A little quieter this week for the team on sales and lettings which is indicative of the half term week, however the positive is a superb result on new instructions for both departments with 11 new instructions for sales and 10 instructions for lettings which will inevitably result in a more productive week of sales & lets agreed.

Whilst most house hunters use rightmove.co.uk to search for their dream home we are finding that the more tenacious buyer is reverting back to the traditional approach of befriending their local estate agent, a number of potential buyers are being made aware of instructions before they go live on the internet, after analysing our own statistics 1 in 3 of smart homes properties are selling before going on to rightmove.co.uk that’s approximately 12 properties per month.

If your concerns are that you will not  find a home if you sell then it’s worth spending some time visiting the agents who are prominent in the area you wish to buy in, if they can put a face to the name the likelihood is they will remember you and your requirements when a suitable property is instructed.

For selling, buying or letting please remember our Shirley and Dickens Heath offices are open 7 days a week 9 till 6 Monday- Friday, 9 till 5 Saturday and 10 till 2 Sunday for both sales and lettings and our web sites; www.smart-homes.co.uk, www.rightmove.co.uk and www.onthemarket.com are updated every week day. If you require a free market appraisal on your property for either rental or sale please contact 0121 744 4144 where we would be
delighted to discuss the service that Smart Homes has to offer, which in our view is second to none.

Make the Smart Move…
