What We Do
Whilst local property newspapers and websites can be used to provide an indication of what your property might be worth, you will need the experience of a professional Estate Agent to get a more accurate and realistic assessment of its current market value.
In determining a property’s market value, we call upon our extensive knowledge of the local area. We also carry out extensive market research and analysis using a number of databases including land registry and look at the demand for your type of property including properties for sale and under offer in your area.
All this research, together with our extensive local knowledge help us to propose the best price for your property. When you instruct us, we ensure every member of our team involved in the sale of your property has an in-depth knowledge of your home.
Photographs are often the first element when advertising your property that potential buyers will see and will often determine whether they will engage any further so it is one of the most important factors in generating interest in your home
Sales Particulars and Brochures
High quality sales details and professionally printed brochures include internal and external digital photography, floor plans, an EPC and useful information to assist with the buyers’ decision making process
For Sale Boards
For maximum impact our distinctive ‘For Sale’ board will market your property 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Prospective buyers often house-hunt with area drive-bys so a distinctive signboard is an important selling tool.
Our customers regularly tell us how important floor plans are in their property search. Being able to clearly see how a property is laid out can make the difference between requesting more details or moving onto the next house in the list. This is why floor plans are an essential part of our marketing and they will also give potential buyers a good idea of the layout of your home and are proven to increase buyer enquiries.
“GREAT MARKETING! The house was bid for within a week of our “Open House Day” and completion set just 2 months later! We like the forthright selling attitude and advice given at the outset of sale negotiations. Their advice right from the beginning of the transaction was spot on.”
Increasingly more buyers use the Internet in their property hunt using the most popular on-line search engines. Accordingly we invest significantly in promoting all of ‘our’ properties on Rightmove and other leading portals as well as our own website www.ashtonestateagents.co.uk and other pro-active websites.
All accompanied viewings of your property are carried out by an experienced member of our sales team who is trained to identify buyer signals and will be able to give prompt and honest feedback to you.
The Mobile World
The mobile world is growing at an incredible rate with a high percentage of buyers browsing for property on mobile devices. We make sure your property is available to view via desktop, laptop and mobile, ensuring your property is accessible to buyers however they choose to seek their next home.
Each appointment with a prospective purchaser is always followed up with honest, constructive feedback. Any offers on your property will be given verbally and in writing with details of the buyers current circumstances. Communication is crucial to the successful completion of every sale. All aspects of the process will be communicated by one of our experienced members of staff, who can explain and advise on any area that is not clear.
Digital Marketing and E-Mail Alerts
With our advanced software, we are able to take advantage of portals that allow ‘realtime’ uploads. This means your property can be visible on the world wide web within hours of instruction. Home buyers are also notified of properties new to the market via automated alerts, whereby they will receive an e-mail straight to their inbox as soon as a new property matching their search criteria is added.
Open House Viewing
For some properties where we anticipate a strong demand we will recommend an ‘Open House’. It is a simple and effective means to show a property to a collection of viewers within a specified allotted time on one set day. This method may stimulate buyer activity and competing bids
Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
Energy Performance Certificates are required by law on all properties for sale and are valid for ten years, provided no changes are made to the property that would affect the energy ratings. We can arrange for a qualified inspector to provide an EPC on request
“From start to finish Ashtons provided a first class service, were professional and friendly. Ashtons are an independent company who have been in the area a long while and who go the extra mile to get everything right and give advice and help when it is needed. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone.”
