If you are looking for the perfect estate agent to help you with selling, buying, or renting properties, there are a number of factors that you should consider when selecting a company. When it comes to selling your house or flat, choosing which agent to use is one of the most important decisions you’ll have to make. Picking the right one will ensure that your sale is plain sailing. Making the wrong choice, on the other hand, could lead to lifelong regret. In this blog, we discuss all of the things you should consider and how at Hancock Partners we ensure the very best service for our customers.
About Hancock And Partners
Founded in 1991, Hancock and Partners quickly became a leading independent estate agency, with the largest lettings portfolio in Chichester. Every one of our senior team is a long-term resident in the area and has extensive knowledge of the local property market. This gives you a distinct advantage and the reassurance that you will find the right tenant or buyer for your property or if you are buying or renting, the dream home you’ve always wanted.
What Sets Us Apart From The Rest?
Valuations That Work For You
Selling a property starts with an accurate property valuation. It is vital that we value your property accurately to ensure that we do not over-promise and under deliver. Instead, we’ll value your home according to what the market is currently telling us so that your property will fetch the best price at any given time. Obviously, if you are in a position to wait things out for a higher sum, we can discuss that too, but our valuation team will always give you their honest opinion on your property’s current market value.
Open And Straightforward Communication
If you’ve ever dealt with a company whose communication left a lot of factors unclear, you will know how frustrating it is. We place great emphasis on keeping each and every one of our customers fully informed throughout the entire process. When you choose us, you can be comforted with the peace of mind that you will never be left in the dark. Our expert team will constantly monitor the progress of your sale and ensure that you are updated at any time there are changes.
Value Every Customer
We are also fully aware of the need to value each and every customer. It has become clear through the feedback we have received from our previous customers, that the reason they often return is due to the fact we never treat anyone who utilises our services as ‘just-another-customer’. We are able to be much more involved than bigger chains, which is why you are always able to receive the attention you deserve.
As with most things, transparency is key to make sure that you are fully aware of what you are expected to pay out before you are tied in. An estate agent that is trustworthy should be able to provide you with all the fees you will incur beforehand. We fully appreciate how stressful selling a property can be and we will work with you to eliminate stress as much as possible.
Part of the issue when selling properties is a lack of exposure. It is important to put your property out there so that potential buyers are able to see it. Here at Hancock and Partners, we will guarantee to get your property out there through both social media and our website. Our expert team will get your property online as soon as we can so that it can potentially start to receive interest immediately.
In most cases, the way in which properties are photographed can really make a difference in how they are perceived. When you choose us, you can be comforted with the peace of mind that we will take professional photographs and present your property extremely positively. We invest a significant amount of time in making your property stand out from the rest visually.
Database of Buyers
We are fully aware that this market relies heavily on speed, which is why we keep a keen database of buyers at our fingertips. This means that you can be sure that serious buyers will be informed about your property as soon as it is available on the market. We have also forged relationships with investors and developers always keen to purchase new to market stock.
A Client-Centred Approach
Selling your home efficiently while securing the best price is not solely a result of effective marketing, professional photography and a tempting guide price. On the contrary, many homes can sit on the market for months or longer despite being advertised during peak buying times and boasting great kerb appeal. The key difference lies in understanding you and your property. We take this client-centred approach at Hancock and Partners to secure the outcome you want, whether you are selling a coastal family home that provides easy access to Chichester Harbour’s sailing clubs, or you want a buyer for your downland cottage within striking distance of Goodwood. Alternatively, you may want to sell a property in the heart of Chichester, just a short walk from the theatre and the city’s excellent shopping and travel links.
If you are looking to sell your property in the near future and are unsure of which estate agent to enlist in, we hope that this blog has helped you to identify what to look out for. Here at Hancock and Partners, we will provide you with everything you could possibly need. Get in touch here.
