I am so often asked how we differ from the online offering. My response is such that for tech savvy individuals the online option is attractive. Cost is a huge factor for many people however more often than not we see people who have paid and are having to pay again for a ‘true’ high street agent. The incentive for the online agent is building stock and their brand presence, their fees are paid up front so you question where is their motivation following taking your money to sell for you? They have been paid and listed your property – now what?

I am often asked, when I am undertaking Marketing Appraisals, whether we have people waiting to view properties such as the one I am inspecting. The short answer, given current marketing conditions, is normally yes! The internet is not the “be all and end all” of selling a property and I was taught in my very early days as an Estate Agent, back in the early 1980’s in London, that the in-house mailing list was the key to the success of the Agency. Without it we could not contact potential purchasers in an era before e-mail and the proliferation of mobile phones!

One of the major factors following a flood is the potential devaluation or blighting that can take place to a person’s property. So on top of the misery that goes with dealing with a flood, there is then the on-going worry if someone had been thinking of moving or selling their house, needed to sell/re-mortgage or whatever, there is then the anguish that goes with the worry about how the flood will have affected their, in the majority of instances, major capital asset.
