Moving home is an emotional journey and a good agent realises that it is not the bricks and mortar that are the most important aspect of selling, but making sure that the client is able to realise their plans, aspirations and dreams.
To facilitate that happening the agent needs to listen to their client and to understand how they can properly help. Decent and honest advice on presentation and pricing is paramount.
At Reid+Dean we go to great lengths to market a property through producing a detailed description with plentiful high quality photos and clear floorplans. This is used to create meaningful, informative printed property sales particulars and to upload to our site , to Rightmove and to On The Market. We are members of the Mayfair Office Group and this site takes our marketing one stage further, concentrating on London and the international markets. Through Mayfair Office we can sometimes gain clients invaluable PR in the national press and when relevant, obtain heavily discounted advertising rates in the media. Facebook sometimes has a part to play in our marketing too.
Having created interest in a property we always accompany viewings and inform clients of the prospective buyer’s reaction. Hopefully it will be positive and a sale agreed.
There is however no point in negotiating a sale price unless you know that the prospective buyer can proceed and so our team will check the buyer’s ability to fund the purchase through asking for proof, and if there are other sales involved in a “chain” we will check the status of those with the agents for the other parties. Only when everything is in place will we recommend that solicitors are instructed; and that is when our role really starts.
The conveyancing process is long and fraught with twists and turns. We do our best to ensure that we smooth out the process, anticipating any difficulties and then resolving them, all the while keeping you informed. We do not hide problems from you, nor do we delay in letting you know about a difficulty.
You will find that everyone at Reid+Dean is friendly, helpful and very keen to make sure that as well as selling your property we fulfil our goal of turning your plans and dreams into reality.
