Keep it local, and charge fair prices – says local online estate agent
Positive Sales and Lettings, a well established local online estate agency based in Winton, Bournemouth have just launched a new low cost service aimed at revolutionizing the marketing of homes for sale in the whole of urban South Dorset.
‘Let’s face it’, says Tim Constable, Managing Director of Positive, ‘In the current market, it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever to pay traditional estate agency fees, usually in the range of 1 to 2% of the property value, when you can sell your home at a fixed price which, typically, represents a saving of up to 75% on that charged by other agents in the area’.
‘There are a few nationwide agencies who are attempting to promote the ‘low cost fixed price’ selling method too’, he added, ‘but they simply don’t have the same local knowledge and expertise which is essential to obtain the best possible price and, most importantly, find properly ‘qualified’ buyers’.
Positive offer a free valuation, and a dedicated local property expert to not only advise on the marketability and pricing of your property, but also to take photographs, draw up floorplans, and create an advertisement which is loaded to leading property websites, such as Rightmove and Zoopla, immediately.
‘Once a sale has been agreed’ said Hannah Bookham, Sales Director, ‘We hold hands with our clients throughout the conveyancing process to help deal with any unexpected hiccups or questions – all to ensure a speedy completion’.
Recent performance statistics from Positive Online show that it currently takes an average of 14 days to find a buyer and that currently 95% of properties achieve their original asking price or more.
Going local seems to be the way to both save money, and take the stress out of the process of selling your home.
‘What a brilliant concept to bring to the local consumer’ said Ross Taylor, MD at Top Cat Media. The fact that you can get an online price with a local service is an offering that clearly outweighs its competitors. We are delighted to be working on this campaign’
