Why choose a local estate agent?

Posted on Sunday, April 8, 2018

If you are thinking about selling your home, there are a number of ways you could put your property on the market. But how can you choose the right way, and the right estate agent, to help you? 

There are many methods of selling your home. You may want to use an online agent, do it yourself or go the traditional route with a local estate agent. However, we believe that using a local estate agent, like the Flatman Partnership, that cares about you and your property, is the best way to sell your property.

The Flatman Partnership

We’re proud of our reputation. Although we started as a family-run estate agent, the Flatman Partnership has grown into a modern and efficient firm with three offices in Reading, Langley and Wokingham. However much we grow, we will continue to retain and value our original principles of friendliness and personal service.

We understand that nearly everyone's needs will differ and we adapt our service accordingly. Arriving at the right asking price for your property is the first critical hurdle (and one which can vary according to personal circumstances) but essentially the age old rules apply; asking too much causes frustration and disappointment, asking too little can encourage gazumping. Our exhaustive knowledge of the local markets will properly inform the decisions you need to make to ensure a smooth move.

As independent estate agents, covering areas we know and understand fully, when we carry out market appraisals we know every factor and anomaly which effects that property’s price. These factors include school OFSTED reports, amenities, public transport links, and much more. This enables us to give a much more accurate valuation, which in-turn, maximises the seller’s sale price.

Reassuringly, clients often return to us again and again, and recommend us to others. Take a look at our testimonials here.
