Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

With Christmas Day almost upon us, we wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

2018 has been another fantastic year for us at Check 4 Houses thanks to our lovely clients in Fleet, Farnborough, Frimley, Mytchett, Aldershot, Maidenhead and beyond. Over the past 12 months, we have saved our clients an amazing £230,000 when compared to standard agency fees. That’s an average of over £5,900 per sale. What would you do with the extra £6,000? It would certainly make a big difference towards your new home.

Speedy service

One of our highlights of the year was our fastest sale where our clients managed to complete within just 28 days of accepting an offer. Given that one in three house sales collapse within three weeks, and that many sales that do succeed can drag on for months, that’s a fantastic achievement. It just shows the importance of using the right agent, to find the right buyer. That’s something we pride ourselves on. We do our homework to ensure we present the best buyers and manage sales closely through to completion.

Service above and beyond what you might expect

At Check 4 Houses we are passionate about delivering exceptional levels of customer service, which has earnt us a place in the Best Estate Agent Guide 2019. Even though we do not do lettings, this year we actually ended up sourcing a short term let for a prospective buyer. This enabled us to keep a buyers sale on track. The buyer was able to relocate the area and the ongoing chain remained intact.

An honest estate agent in Fleet

Our aim has always been to offer a professional, genuine and reliable service. We don’t over-value properties just to get business or overpromise on what we can deliver. We firmly believe honesty is the best policy, and we’re delighted that clients like Mr B Attree from Farnborough agree:

“Many thanks to Paul and all his staff for a job well done!

From the outset, Paul was frank and honest about the market conditions and the value of my home. We agreed to market the property using ‘offers in excess of’ and within a week I had 13 viewings and several offers including several over the asking price!

Check 4 Houses were always attentive and extremely professional!

I can’t thank them enough for all of their hard work, great communication and attention to detail throughout.”

Brexit and beyond

Of course, Brexit is coming and people are worried about all sorts of things from holidays to our harbour ports. We don’t know yet exactly what effect it will have on the property market. But we do know, Brexit or not, that people still need to move home. Be it new jobs, new partners, new babies, new schools or simply new surroundings, people will always want to move house, whatever happens to property prices. We also know that our local area around Fleet, Farnborough and Aldershot is a highly desirable area. Good commuter services to London and access to the motorway network are major plus points. We have a low crime rate, good schools, a wide variety of sports facilities and stunning green spaces to enjoy. Demand is still likely to outstrip supply.  

After such a busy year we will be taking a few days off over Christmas and New Year. Our offices are now closed and will reopen on Thursday 3rd January at 9 am.

If you are thinking about selling your home in 2019 then please give us a call on 01252 819725.  We would be delighted to give you a free valuation as well as talk you through our competitive pricing options, personal service and price match guarantee.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us at Check 4 Houses.
