Selling property in Hucknall

The Hucknall Property Market:

How to Avoid The Property Merry-Go-Round and Disappointment

A trend I have noticed of late in Hucknall is that some Vendors are reluctant to put their property up for sale as they believe that theirs will sell quickly, and they are then worried that they won’t be able to find anywhere to buy.

They could well be right on both points. However, whilst vendors may have a property that will sell quickly, it may not be quick enough in the current market conditions. Demand for property in Hucknall is high right now, and there simply aren’t enough houses in Hucknall for sale to satisfy the demand. As a result of this, many houses are selling in days.

Therefore, if Vendor’s choose to wait to list their property until they find a property that they would like to buy, the odds are against them selling theirs before someone else (who is in a position to proceed) makes an acceptable offer on the property they want. They are then left disappointed and the Property Merry-Go-Round begins again.

So, what is the answer?
For me, it is to list your property for sale with an Agent who has great communication skills and the ability to negotiate and manage your buyer’s time expectations at the point of offer. By doing this effectively both parties will be fully aware of the others situation, and the buyer will accept and agree not to pressurise the Vendor into panic buying.

If the above happens, that Vendor is now in a position to be able to offer on a property immediately after viewing one that he/she would like to purchase.

In my opinion, this situation sure beats falling in love with a property, to only discover that someone else has purchased it because you hadn’t sold.

If this resonates with you and you’d like to instruct an agent who is experienced in effectively dealing with this situation, then please don’t hesitate to call 0115 9243304. You can also visit our Estate Agents Nottingham page to find out more.


Mr Green’s 3 Week Reflection – Exciting Times Ahead!

Did you know there are generally 3 types of people? Well there is, and they are blue, red and green. Of course, they aren’t that colour, but the colour represents their personality. Blue tend to be friendly and easy going, but there is a temper beneath. Red may come across as not particularly friendly, feisty even, but really they are nice people when you get to know them. So what about green? They don’t suffer fools gladly, won’t make an important decision immediately because they want to get it right, and are analytical.

Apparently, I’m green. I wanted to be Mr Blue! Not going to lie, I was disappointed at first because being Mr Green didn’t sound exciting, in fact it sounded like quite the opposite. Great I thought, but then I was told being green can be a good thing if you’re a manager. Only time will tell if that proves to be the case.

Today I reflected on the 3 weeks since we officially opened the Hucknall Branch, proud of what we have accomplished so far, although this is only the beginning and there is plenty still to be done. Aided with great support, the initial foundations have been laid, to give this branch every chance of being a big success. Systems have been created and advanced training sessions have been delivered – and it shows.

I’m pleased to recognise the huge progress both Rachael and Jorge have made, as they now have the ability and knowledge to excel in their respected roles whilst catering to our client’s needs. However, what I find really pleasing is how passionate and enthusiastic they are about helping our vendors sell their properties for the best possible price. They are a credit to the company, as is our latest recruit, Curtis Deller, who has bags of enthusiasm and I have no doubt he will thrive in his role as a Personal Property Finder.

Today we are 2nd out of 43 Agents in the area for new Instructions, so naturally I’m delighted to see that all our hard work is already paying off. A special mention has to go to Nick Aston and Joe Newton, because they have been instrumental in winning the instructions and long may it continue.

As for Hucknall, I have to say, I like it. The locals are friendly and it’s evident that there is a good community spirit and we’ve been made to feel very welcome. They also appear to like our Touchscreen technology in our window for searching for their ideal property – We’re so pleased it’s really popular. As for me personally, the last three weeks have flown by. I shouldn’t be surprised, as I have actually really enjoyed it. Walton and Allen are the first company I have worked for where I actually look forward to coming to work! I feel lucky and appreciate the opportunity given to me by Director Phil Williams to manage this fabulous branch, and I’m really excited about building on what we have started to making this branch a resounding success – and If that means being Mr Green, then so be it.
