As 2015 draws to a close, here at Check 4 Houses we wanted to take the opportunity to say Merry Christmas and thank you to all our customers that have made 2015 another record breaking year for us.
During the past 12 months we have sold over 85 properties – that’s 21% more than last year – from our local areas of Fleet, Farnborough and Basingstoke and as far afield as Essex, Southampton and London. We pride ourselves on our combination of the experience and knowledge of a traditional estate agent with the flexibility and advantages of the modern internet and specialise in the sale of residential property in Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire and across the rest of England.
In total we have saved our clients over £280,000 in agency commission fees by selling homes from as little as £499 or 0.5%+ VAT, delivering an average saving of well over £3,700 for each client when compared to standard agency fees. Our record saving for the year was over £12,631 for a house we sold with an asking price of £735,000 for just £499 + VAT. That certainly gave our client a few extra pounds to spend on their new home!
The property market continued to show growth, particularly around the areas of Fleet, Farnborough and Basingstoke with prices rising as supply continues to outstrip to demand, allowing us to deliver even greater savings to our customers. We sold one house without even advertising it due to the interested buyers already registered with us. However the longest sale took almost 12 months due to delays and problems in the chain – showing just how important it is to select the right estate agent that can help support you through what can be a difficult and stressful process.
We welcomed the lovely Julie to our team as we expanded to cater with increased demand. We also received some lovely testimonials from some happy customers including:
“We saved over £8,000 in fees and had great service from Paul and his staff at Check 4 Houses. He was very professional, to the point, not afraid to tell it how it is and just got things done. Our house details, photos and plans were excellent, better than a lot of the high street agents. Paul sorted out our questions and was in contact with all other agents in the chain. He was on the ball right through our very long and at times painfully slow chain. But we made it in the end thank you!”
After such a busy year we will be taking a few days off over Christmas. Our offices will be closed from Christmas Day through till 3rd January. We will be back raring to go on Monday 4th January at 9am and looking forward to another record breaking year.
If you are looking to sell your home in 2016 then please give us a call on 01252 819725. We would be delighted to give you a free valuation of your home 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.
