Selling your home
Selling your home is a serious business. It is imperative that you appoint the right agent to promote your property, protect your interest and achieve the best possible result.
The partners at Berkeleys have practised in the area for over 40 years and established the office in 1991. Our experienced and motivated team are passionate about property and will tailor a marketing campaign to suit your needs.
As a local independent estate agent our primary concern is that our customer base is delighted with our service. You can rest assured that Berkeleys will take care of your move from start to finish with an unrivalled, diligent and professional approach and are totally committed to delivering the results you expect. When you become a Berkeley’s customer you will benefit from all of the below;
Our National and London Network
As a member of Guild of Professional Estate Agents we nationally network your property delivering it to the widest marketplace, and offering maximum exposure. The National Property Centre on Park Lane London, allows us to access the lucrative London and International investor market, with your property being advertised in the showroom windows on our touch screens and rolling monitors. As a member of the Guild we have access to a network of 500 offices nationally with a national referral system linking buyers and sellers from across the country this ensures your property reaches the widest possible audience.
Prime high street location
Our refurbished triple fronted office is ideally located and has the largest window display of properties in Canford Cliffs. Its’ strong presence means it is an eye catcher for everyone that walks past.
Selling homes seven days a week
Our experienced staff are available seven days a week to maximise viewing opportunities and to ensure your property receives optimum exposure at any time requested by our buyers.
Your property brochure
We put more effort into producing better marketing material because first impressions count. All our property particulars are produced in-house to superior standards giving comprehensive, clear and accurate representations including detailed floor plans. Our brochures really stand out from the crowd, and are both informative and appealing to customers. In short, it’s everything your potential buyer will need to know about your property in one impressive package.
It's a known fact that over 70% of people who move house do so within the same area. We regularly advertise in local press including Dorset Property Week, Society, House and Compass magazine. As well as the Guild's monthly regional magazine, which is distributed to the national network providing you with national publicity and coverage. What does this mean for you? That your property is seen by more people, more of the time. Our adverts follow the distinctive look of the rest of our brand, and we always take appropriate ad space so our details feature big images and large clear property details, meaning that they really stand out from the crowd – crucial in this saturated market.
We have extensive relationships with key journalists providing clients with further exposure for their properties across a wide range of publications.
Our Website nets more exposure for your property
Did you know that almost 80% of all property searches are initiated on the Internet. www berkeleys.com. is one of the main sources of enquiries that we receive, and gets thousands of hits every month. We carefully create online profiles for your property that reflect every bit of the quality of our printed material, and gives site visitors a broad range of information and images of your property. Having your property featured on www.berkeleys.com means that you’ll get national and global advertising, 24 hours a day. We’re also linked with www.rightmove.co.uk, the UK's number one property website as well as number of other top search portals.
Once you have instructed us, we immediately start cross-referencing the many buyers on our books to search for possible matches. We'll then call and email all the suitable candidates to encourage them to view your property. We will prepare the particulars of your property, and once you’ve approved them, we'll send them out on your behalf. We'll organise a window display for you, put up a For Sale board, register your property on www.berkeleys.com, and put it in the earliest edition of local press we can. Your property will continue to be advertised in this way regardless of how long it's been on the market. You can be sure that we’re doing everything we possibly can to sell your property, and we’re always at the end of the phone for any queries you have.
Accompanied viewings with constructive feedback.
It's our job to sell your house for you, so let us shoulder the responsibility of carrying out viewings on your property. Viewings are time consuming and take a good deal of energy to perform well. Having done literally thousands of viewings, we know exactly how best to promote the features of your home, and how best to compare them with the rest of the market. It’s common knowledge that buyers can feel uncomfortable with vendors present at viewings, as they feel they can’t be honest and open about what they are really looking for in a property. So take some time out and do something you enjoy whilst we do our job, and we’ll feedback every comment made on your property as quickly as possible.
Communication is everything, and we understand that there's nothing more frustrating than developments occurring and you not knowing what’s going on with the sale of your home. That's why we keep in constant contact with you to let you know up-to-the minute news regarding the status of your property. You can be sure that you’re constantly in our thoughts, and we’re always discussing strategies in house on how to improve our selling methods. In the unlikely event that your property is just not selling, we’d be more than happy to arrange a meeting to discuss further marketing opportunities with you.
Unrivalled experience and advice
It takes skill and expertise to negotiate a sale successfully through to completion. We talk to everyone involved in the process from solicitors to the agents checking the chain both up and down and will monitor the process closely from offer to completion. More importantly we will repeat every development back to you. Our expertise and experience comes in to play here as we instinctively know what should happen and when. Our team will keep you regularly updated every step of the way
No tied sole agency agreements
We don't believe in tying our customers into long contractual agreements. We are confident in keeping our clients through good service not unscrupulous contracts.
Our unique approach to staff performance
Our team benefits from 'pooled commission' and so do you, unlike almost every other estate agent we still share commission between the team. This means that every one of us will look after your interests.
Professionalism and how we are regulated (trust and confidence)
Not all estate agents want to be accountable for their actions. We like to maintain the highest professional standards by conforming to the requirements of the industry's leading organisations. It's a clear sign you're dealing with a thoroughly reputable and respected agent. We are regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Office of Fair Trading
Are you struggling to find your dream home? We offer a free of charge Home Finder service that can help find the property for you. Just give us a few simple details of what you're after - what area, even what road you want to live in - and we'll start the search to find your ideal home match. If you are not local, tell us and we will spend time showing you around the area and explaining the market place to you.
