Should Your House Have Sold By Now?

We are often asked to look at properties that really should have sold, but haven?t, and we understand the disappointment of vendors whose experience of the sales process has fallen short of their expectations.

We usually find that it?s the way that the average estate agent communicates that causes the frustration ? not necessarily a lack of buyers.

So if you find yourself with a property that appears to be sticking, you might like to determine the reason by asking yourself the following questions:

? Is your agent as enthusiastic as the day he/she listed your property?
? Do they keep you regularly updated with constructive feedback immediately following a viewing?
? Do they phone you, or do you have to chase them?
? Do they accompany viewings to make sure they are maximising buyer contact and feedback opportunities?
? Do they keep you informed of what is available and actually selling in the area ? and not just their own stock?
? Have they provided you with practical marketing advice in terms of how to present your property for sale?
? Do they regularly advertise properties similar to your own in order to attract a variety of buyers?
? Do you feel like a valued customer with an important property, or one of a number of instructions on their books?
? Are they blaming a slower market, or taking responsibility?

If the above rings any bells, it might be worth rethinking your sales strategy with a refreshing kick start before your property goes stale on the market. Why not give us a call before it?s too late?*
