As Adrian explains, “Spring is a very active time in the property market, in addition, this year we have seen the busiest start to the New Year for several years. We are seeing a sharp rise in visits and owners agreeing offers, partially caused by Brexit with buyers wanting to re-locate from the UK.
“Buyers keep telling us they believe they have a 2-year window of opportunity to make a move. As a result we are seeing an increase in full time movers, this means budgets are up. Sellers should not hesitate to act, they could already be missing out on the potential buyers that are actively looking.”
Jacqui continues. “In addition to the active British property market, we have also seen an increase in buyers from France, Holland and Belgium. Our target audience are buyers looking to retire or who may be thinking of early retirement, often cash purchasers and ready to proceed. Spring is a great time to start marketing when photos look good with a splash of colour, plenty of sunshine and blue sky.
“Our Platinum Plus service is our most popular scheme and includes a visit to photograph and floorplan the property. We are frequently contacted by sellers that have been trying to sell their home for several months and find that many are disappointed by the lack of proactive advertising carried out by their current agents. They are very encouraged to hear about ARB’s approach of not compromising on either the quality or the quantity of the marketing of their home.”
Adrian concludes, “Our commitment to our sellers is to make sure their home gets the very best marketing we can provide. To help us achieve this, we advertise on leading third-party sites such as Rightmove, A Place in the Sun, French Property Links and many more.”
