Expert initial advice on the value is critical to a successful sale. We do not overvalue to gain your business. We do however conduct an exhaustive amount of research before coming out to value your property, enabling us to be as accurate as possible.
In addition, we pride ourselves on having a good record in selling properties that other agents have previously marketed unsuccessfully.
If at first you don't succeed... In the event that we are unable to secure a buyer for you first off, we keep reviewing and re-evaluating the marketing strategy. We certainly wouldn't put you on the back burner or 'wait for the market to catch up'… (you'd be likely waiting a long time in this area).
There is a buyer out there for every house. Our job is to make the match.
The sooner the better.
