Since starting out in 1998, smarthomes has achieved unparalleled levels of sales success and have become one of the leading estate agents in Solihull and in their traditional areas of Shirley, Wythall, Acocks Green and the surrounding vicinity.
2018 saw the appointment of a new Sales Director – Russell Paterson - to focus exclusively on the Solihull market. To be the best estate agent in Solihull, smarthomes believe the key to success is knowledgeable staff, a proactive approach and an enthusiastic attitude. We really are a Solihull estate agent with a difference, and our many awards are a testament to our proven track record.
In 2018 smarthomes scooped 11 property awards in the Allagents.co.uk National Property Awards, including Best Estate Agent in the West Midlands. We also walked away with the coveted prize of being awarded the Number One Sales Branch of the Year 2018 on a national basis. It really doesn’t get any better than that!
In the past Solihull has been known to reach the highest property prices in the UK outside of London and the South. There are many reasons for this, including: its proximity to the beautiful Warwickshire countryside; quick rail access to Birmingham; the fact that London is only an hour or so away by train; outstanding local schools; Touchwood shopping centre; great local parks; and easy access to the heart of the motorway network, providing access all over the country.
The most affluent roads in the area are in the catchment area or have access to excellent schools and include Alderbrook Road, Hampton Lane, Silhill Hall Road, Broad Oaks Road, Ashleigh Road, Brueton Avenue, Park Avenue and Blythe Way. However, there are many more premium roads in the area that are incredibly desirable for today’s house hunters.
If you want to get your house sold quickly and for the best price, then we’re the Solihull estate agent to use. We’ve been awarded ‘Best Estate Agent in the West Midlands’ and ‘Number One Sales Branch of the Year’ in the 2018 Allagents.co.uk property awards.
These awards are entirely based on customer feedback and with reviews that include the following feedback, it’s easy to see why we are doing so well.
‘smarthomes are simply superb at what they do. Professional estate agents who offer continuous support from initial valuation to exchange and completion.’
‘Such a positive experience I cannot recommend smarthomes enough! Throughout the process I was kept fully informed of progress by professional friendly qualified staff.’
The average asking price of a property in Solihull is nearly £440,000, way over the UK national average of £231,000. That in itself tells people what a desirable and premium area Solihull is. The most popular type of property for sale are detached and have 3 or more bedrooms.
According to research, the average length of time a house is on the market in Solihull is 125 days. However, at smarthomes we can do much better than this! Because we know the area so well, because we take time to understand our sellers’ needs and our buyers’ requirements… the average time one of our Solihull properties is on the market is 77 days.
Other Solihull estate agents don’t understand how we do it so quickly but to us it’s not rocket science – it’s just amazing what you can do with a whole lot of knowledge and enthusiasm!
