For the majority of people selling a property is likely to be the highest value transaction they undertake. As it is also a transaction that the vast majority of people only undertake occasionally it is critical that the relevant professionals are employed to ensure that the process goes as smoothly as possible in order to endeavour to achieve the desired outcome. Whilst there are now alternatives to the traditional “full service” high street estate agents it is important to be aware of the limitations of the various packages on offer. Whilst the headline figure might look attractive, although based on Eric Lloyd & Co’s average sales commission the supposed savings do not run into many thousands of pounds, very often the charge is just for a basic listing with everything else, accompanied viewings, sale progression, etc, being charged extra and usually up-front. Eric Lloyd & Co, like the majority of traditional high street estate agents only charge when the job has been done and the money is in the bank. The service starts with a free, no obligation, valuation carried out by one of our highly experienced valuers, who have years of experience of the local market place, followed by the preparation of a full marketing package. All viewings are accompanied and once a sale has been successfully negotiated its progress is monitored by a dedicated sales progression team. There are real people in real offices to talk to with the whole operation overseen by company director Jonathan Bye, who is a Fellow of the National Association of Estate Agents. Thinking of selling then call us today on Brixham (01803) 852773 or Paignton (01803) 844466.
