Mr Gething came to haart Stratton St Margaret estate agents looking to sell his lovely three bedroom home in order to upsize to another property within the local area. He wanted to secure the best price possible for the three bedroom property in Leighton Avenue, but also wanted to ensure he could find the right buyer who would fit within his timescale.                               

 

Why FLINK?

FLINK was a big help for the sale of this property. It allowed us to attract a number of great buyers who were suitable and could fit into our seller’s timescale. The ability to target those potential buyers in such a specific manner is a valuable tool for our customers and makes our job even easier, which is a big plus for FLINK.

 

The property

Once we completed the full valuation on the property, it was clear that it would not be a difficult property to sell.  The whole house was really well looked after and had a polished, modern feel. The property was located nearby Coate Water, the Great Western Hospital and offered excellent access to transport links such as the A419 and the M4, making it a really attractive property to multiple buyers. The house also had plenty of great features and a modern kitchen, lounge, conservatory, three good-sized bedrooms, a generous rear garden and a driveway providing off-road parking.

In particular, we were very impressed with the large garden and sizable space at the side of the property, making it the perfect family home. The property also presented the opportunity to possibly extend (subject to planning permission). We loved the fireplace and could just imagine how cosy it would be in the winter relaxing in the lounge in front of the fire. We knew all it needed was for potential buyers to come and view the property for themselves.

 

How we sold this excellent three bedroom home in Park South

From our valuation of the property, we felt it was important to hold an open house event in order to best meet our seller’s needs of achieving the best price possible and making sure that the seller had a variety of buyers to choose from that would fit within his timescale. We also thought it would be a great opportunity to showcase the property’s excellent features to several interested parties on the same day. The seller also expressed a keen interest in the way we carry out our open house events as we bring a number of sourced potential buyers to the property and allow for offers to be made on the day which increases the demand for the property.

To promote the open house we used our database of registered applicants to find potential buyers and carried out a campaign online using FLINK, our unique marketing technology that generates multiple ads for different target audiences based upon which features might appeal to them.

As anticipated, we generated a great deal of interest on the property a managed to sell for £7,500 over the asking price. In fact, it took some time to  agree the sale because we had so much interest in the property but our seller was happy nonetheless as we were able to get an excellent price for their property.  As our Branch Manager, Steven Hendry explains, “The property was fantastic and sure to sell easily.  With FLINK we were able to give this property the exposure and recognition it deserved and I’m over the moon that we managed to achieve the price we did for Mr Gething.”

The sellers were even kind enough to share how happy they were with us “Super happy, our asking price was £200,000 and we sold our home for £207,500. It took 2 weeks!”
