Achieving the best price for your home
Firstly, we are not a stack ’em high, sell ‘em cheap agency! At Wellington Evans, we aim for you to be delighted with every aspect of our services, including the price we achieve. We want you to recommend us to your friends and family, and then come back to us when you next need to move.
We will agree with you the correct strategy for selling your home, which could include, the modern approach of ‘Offers Over’ with a view to achieving the maximum interest, culminating in a ‘full and final’ offer situation. Or perhaps a more traditional Guide Price approach at the highest end of your homes price range or when appropriate, an informal tender sale (sealed bids). Our advice is based on what is right for you, your home and ensuring we achieve the very best price.
We do things properly
We work with a professional photographer who will not only capture the beauty of your home but also produce a high-quality virtual tour that is guaranteed to impress. Combined, these elements will give a stunning introduction to your home, bringing it to life. Ultimately, we will make your home stand out.
Our quality brochures are written in a style that will entice the reader, ensuring they are excited about visiting your home. We will even use a specialist content writer, where applicable.
We can also produce a video of your home and its location. This will provide commentary about its most striking features, and is perfect for out of town buyers to get a feel for the area.
This high-quality marketing material, along with our fantastic marketing strategies, will help generate more enquiries, leading to a better price achieved.
The power of social media
Social media has fast become the ‘go to’ marketing preference for many businesses in the UK and we are no different. We are not only proactive in the marketing of our estate agency brand, but we use social media effectively for our clients too.
Each of our instructions will be featured across our social media channels including Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. By using this medium we have the potential to reach thousands of people who are actively using these channels daily.
Our aim is to put your property in the shop window on social media to help maximise exposure, to showcase your home and generate enquiries from potential buyers.
Negotiation & sales management
The most crucial aspect of any sale is the negotiation. Anyone can take an offer and pass it on to an owner, but a trained and skilled negotiator will get you a better price. We are on your side and will fight for every penny. We take great pride in achieving the maximum price for our customers.
When a sale is agreed the real work starts! Having checked your buyer has the funds, and that the chain is solid, we will chase the whole chain (not just our link) regularly and keep you updated. We will liaise with other agents, solicitors, mortgage brokers, and surveyors to keep the sale on track. We will work to your timescales, after all, we are working for you.
Matching buyers to your home
We have invested heavily in the latest cutting-edge CRM software (check it out at Street.co.uk).
Did you know that over 50% of all property enquiries fall outside of office hours? Our system is always on, so you’ll never miss a thing. More viewings lead to higher offers and faster sales!
You can update your property details, see who is interested in your home, manage viewings, gain instant feedback, and watch the offers come in!
Moving home can provide a dilemma for many of us, either by trying to find that often elusive home to buy first, or to strengthen our buying position by selling beforehand.
Our discreet market option is a low-key approach to property marketing intended specifically to resolve this problem. Properties held on our Discreet Register are not advertised, we do not erect a for sale board. Instead, notification of your property’s availability is passed discreetly to carefully selected buyers who have already indicated their willingness to wait for the ‘right’ property. Many of these buyers might be living in rented accommodation and are therefore able to offer a flexible timescale.
Out of area selling
For past and present customers we are able to offer an out of area selling service. We have been asked several times to act on the sale of a remote second home, surplus rental investment or probate sale.
We have several solutions we can tailor to your needs with the largest variable being the distance from our area but even if your property were near Lands End we can still offer our services in maximising the selling price, effectiveness of marketing and transaction management.
Over recent years it has become increasingly common that we have been asked to assist customers with an out of area home to sell, with whom we have worked with closely after selling their local property. It is always a pleasure to assist them again.
Please note: this service is only available to past and present customers.
