Property Company Selling Above Price

With sales increasing week-on-week and still outstripping the performance of the traditional high street estate agencies, the online company has announced that it is advising people to come on to the market with only a 5% discount on the selling price.
The family-owned company is selling properties fast. It more than often obtains a figure above the asking price, as it recently did with a property in Dundee which achieved £8,500 more than its market price. The same has happened with properties across the UK, including gaining £2,500 more for a property in Bicester and £7,000 more for a Doncaster house.
The Agency is also noting that there are more block viewings taking place and that properties are going quickly. One of theirs in Manchester was sold in eight hours and a high percentage of properties are sold within the week. Properties in Birmingham, Crawley, Newport, Harrow and Cardiff have all sold within days at the first viewing.
Mark Brogan, Founding Managing Director, said:
“Our sales record supports the findings of the May RICS Housing market survey as we are definitely seeing that enquiries are feeding through into increased transactions. It is now possible to tempt buyers with just a 5% discount, whereas before we were advising that people came to market with at least a 10% reduction on the survey price”.
The company is pioneering new ways of working for the estate agent. “We are an online estate agency that is prepared to go out to people and meet them in their homes”, said Mark Brogan. “We advertise our properties widely, we are at the end of a phone line at any time of the day and we believe in going that extra mile for both buyers and sellers”.
Henry Britton, Newark, viewed his latest property on and owned it within the month. Henry says “I can’t believe how easily this transaction went through compared to previous experiences”. Henry is renovating this house to provide a haven for music students.

Notes to Editors:

Express Estate Agency ( speeds up the home buying process by matching motivated buyers with quality properties that require swift sales on the open market.

Within its Premium Option sellers are required to have a RICS valuation of their property, which can be ordered through Express Estate Agency (the organisation does not make a profit on this service). Sellers are then required to reduce the cost of their properties by a minimum of 5%

The discounted prices attract buyers who are ready to proceed, i.e. those with finance in place, solicitors who are able to act quickly, and who are not reliant on an onward chain. It is therefore possible to negotiate quick completion.

Express Estate Agency is a trading name of Sell Quick Ltd.
