ROPERTIES may not be getting the same volume of viewings and multiple offers but there are still sales taking place.
“This type of market gives buyers and sellers more time to choose the right home without rushing into a purchase.
“Having to disappoint countless buyers (in some cases 15-plus offers submitted after open days have taken place) is not an enjoyable process.
“Many sellers looking to buy in the last 18 months have really struggled to find the right properties to move to, with a lot getting snapped up quickly by chain-free buyers, now is a great the time to move up the ladder.
“With chains forming and generally a slower property market estate agents will have to work a little harder rather than just putting the properties online and waiting for the queue to form at the door.
“Online agents will really struggle in this market, why pay an up-front fee when there is no guarantee you will get the price you need to move on?! Is the local contact really that knowledgeable about your town?
“Here at Potter and Ford we have had a great run of sales post-Brexit. The photo (above) shows some of the homes that have gone under offer with us since the beginning of July.
“A proactive approach is needed in order to find the best buyers. Applicants need a little more persuasion and accompanied viewings and a large applicant database, marketing materials and high-quality photos are key.
“At Potter and Ford we provide this all of this with no up-front fees to pay.
“If you are considering moving please contact us for an honest and up-to-date, no-obligation, free market appraisal.
“We specialise in properties in Chesham,Amersham, Chesham Bois, the Chalfonts, Great Missenden and surrounding villages.
