The news from a recent Post Offices Mortgage survey announcing that it takes up to 108 days to sell a property in Liverpool got us talking in the office. We are not about to give you a lesson in economics; now is not the time, but property sales come down to supply and demand – easy enough, right?
Asking prices, the condition of the property, locations, local schools, the number of bedrooms on offer all play a part also, but if it is taking twice as long to sell in our city than some other UK cities, how can we make your property stand out from the rest?
Before we turn our attention to marketing your property, we invest time and energy to understand the property you want to sell and your circumstances. Whether it is the much-loved family nest where you raised your children or a key asset in your property portfolio, it is a one-off, and we will craft a sales plan and powerful marketing package that starts with you. Unrivalled attention to detail, expert market knowledge and honest and transparent services – it’s who we are.
More than 90% of property searches begin online so first things first, we add your comprehensive property listings to our mobile friendly industry-leading website. Using expert photography and creative copy writing, a listing on some of the most popular property portals, including Rightmove, Primelocation and Zoopla will also boost your ranking and chances of a quicker sale.
And with 1.44 billion people on Facebook worldwide, we take full advantage of this channel and other social media outlets such as Twitter to target potential buyers with expert precision. Let’s be honest, you never know who might be watching.
Despite all these tactics, at times it can’t replace face-to-face and good old network marketing. A bright and friendly For Sale board is part of the deal; it should go without saying. Our busy office in Liverpool City Centre, passing custom and prominent window displays also shout about your property, links with other agencies within and outside the area, and a database of contacts allows us to scour a captive audience of prospective buyers and investors.
What’s more, if you are unable to show people around, we will conduct expert viewings on your behalf. Just drop off the keys, they will be safe as houses.
Predicting the future may be difficult, but our office discussion concluded with a consensus; selling your property with us means that you can be confident that we are reaching out to as many buyers as possible. Contact us today and let us guide you through the process.
