Selling with Gibson Honey
Have you noticed how the service from “owner-run” companies is so much better than that from “manager run” companies? That’s exactly what you get from us – the people who own it, run it and have been doing so since our inception. Our business is built on reputation and we firmly believe that peace of mind for our clients is just as important as the results we deliver.
What sets estate agents apart from each other is the experience, skill and commitment to ensure a smooth transaction and a successful sale. As the Directors take a hands on approach with this, and with over thirty years’ experience, together with our industry qualifications, we believe that we are the agents to help you.
“Listen”. This is a very important word that sometimes estate agents can forget. Each individual client is different and from our point of view it is vital that we listen to their needs to enable us to advise them correctly.
An obvious conundrum when selling is choosing the correct asking price and it is understandable that you will want the very best price for your home. However, it is never wise to instruct an estate agent simply because they recommend the highest price, because although tempting, it could be a deliberate attempt to gain your instructions on a long term contract.
When an estate agent provides you with their valuation, you must ask yourself how they came to their conclusion. Where is the evidence that this price is correct? Will your property look expensive compared to similar properties in the area? If so, will potential purchasers lean towards your competition rather than your home?
Gibson Honey’s average selling period is two weeks and this is the most crucial time when it comes to securing a purchaser for your home. If your property does not sell in this period, it can then look stale, which can lead to unnecessary price reductions. This can sometimes result in you achieving less money than you would have done if priced accurately at the beginning. It is crucial that you choose the estate agent who can prove that they are pricing your home correctly from the start.
Once a sale is secured it is extremely important to follow the progress using our skills and knowledge. We believe that larger agents focus on volume and do not spend enough time on their sales once solicitors have been introduced. Monitoring the progress of the sale is vitally important to avoid any unnecessary delays. Keeping all relevant parties updated enables them to understand the transaction so that they can act upon information as required. Our experience when liaising with other professionals such as solicitors and surveyors means that the chances of success are higher than average.
