We’re well known at FSS for lettings and for handling commercial property but did you know we also have a thriving estate agency department that sells residential homes?
Here are 10 reasons to instruct FSS to sell your home in 2017:
1. Nobody knows the local market like we do.
FSS is the only property consultancy in Harrogate to cover auctions, lettings, commercial, residential sales and surveying. This gives us an enormous amount of knowledge and expertise so when we carry out a valuation we’re drawing on a thorough understanding of the local market, not a quick search of recent sold data on Rightmove or Zoopla.
2. One of the biggest teams in the district, at your service.
Many people don’t realise that we have 27 staff at FSS and they are all dedicated to keeping our customers happy. Whether you’re selling a property with us or looking to buy, you can be certain of a warm welcome and the best possible service.
3. Hundreds of buyers waiting.
The big advantage of having a large lettings side to our business is that we manage around 1000 rental properties at any one time, many of which have tenants who are ultimately looking to buy when the right property comes along. This pool of potential buyers is just part of our vast network and we keep in regular contact with relocation agencies, corporate clients and other connections to keep them informed of homes coming onto the market that fit their criteria.
4. Estate experience.
When it comes to selling large portfolios of properties we have a lot of experience that can make a real difference to the total amount achieved. We will look at the entire range of homes and advise on the best strategy for going to market. This may involve a combination of auction and private treaty sale to get the highest prices and might mean a staged release of properties if we feel this is the best way to achieve maximum value.
5. An open and honest approach.
FSS has become known for three things over the years – Quality, Trust and Value. We offer so much more than your average agent – and the best value for money. When it comes to selling your home, we believe the expertise, service and integrity offered by FSS is worth paying for.
6. A creative approach to marketing your home.
We’ve spent a lot of time designing stylish brochures and polishing our photography and website to put your property in the best possible light. We also have a superb and proactive creative marketing team on hand to come up with exciting ways to market unusual properties through the press and social media.
7. A century of experience.
The experience of our senior residential sales team adds up to around 100 years so your most valued asset is in safe hands. We know just how to get you the best price and you can rest assured that your potential buyers will be receiving the best possible service.
8. Keeping you updated.
We’ll give you regular updates weekly as a minimum throughout the sales process. This includes honest feedback after viewings so that you can take action, if needed, to sell your home quicker.
9. Getting to know your property inside out.
Our negotiators view every property we sell so that they get a feel for it and can sell the most important points. Our experienced sales negotiators also offer accompanied viewings if you prefer.
10. We don’t disappear when the Sold sign goes up.
Selling your home is only part of the story and lots of agents let their clients down at this crucial stage. The chasing and sales progression is an important part of our service and it’s one of the reasons so many people recommend us.
