Learn Some Local Knowledge To Sell Your Home

  25 Jan 2019

When it comes to selling a home, there is a lot to be said for calling on the services of a local estate agent. At Jezzards, we are pleased to say we have helped many vendors in London and Surrey sell their home. Our experience in the market, selling homes that are similar to yours, helps us help you, but the importance of local knowledge should never be overlooked. This is an area where the vendor can improve the sales process by adding some local knowledge of their own to the sales process.

As someone who owns property in the area, you have experience of the local area and community that you can pass on. You may not think that your views on local stores, restaurants or how helpful the local council is matters much in the grand scheme of things, but it may make a difference in selling a home.

Provide insight into what life is like living in the local area

It may be that a prospective buyer is looking to buy a home in your area without having much experience in the area. Perhaps they are moving to be closer to work or they have researched suitable areas and found that homes in your area in their budget. The buyer may not be a local, so any advice or guidance which you can offer them may help to persuade them to buy your home.

There is a lot of information about local areas to be found online, but this information isn’t always up to date, it may not be accurate and it may not offer insight from a homeowner’s perspective. Local council authorities or companies may try and paint a picture of what a local community offers, but people who make the area their home may have a different view on what is good about the local area.

Help people learn about what the area has to offer

If you believe the local transport service is of benefit and suitable for commuters, share your opinions with us and with local buyers. If there are local stores that provide you with fantastic service or which offer tremendous value for money, make sure people know that there are stores which stand out in the community.

It may even be that you are actively involved with local interest or community groups or that your children enjoy a wide range of extra-curricular activities. This is information that may not be easy to find or piece together online, but it is information that will help people settle in and feel at home.

As local property market specialists, we know the local market and we know what the local area has to offer. However, as a local homeowner, you have a unique perspective and you will have insight and information that buyers are desperate to know. Vendors should look to get involved with the sales process because your insight and input is often invaluable.

At Jezzards, we will do whatever it takes to sell your home but we’re here to support you, so get involved and together, we’ll sell your home faster. For further information on our range of selling services or for advice on the current property market, contact Jezzards by clicking here or  calling 03330 433 633

What our clients say about us

  • " I've dealt with some horrible agencies whilst renting in the past but I am glad we had Jezzards as our last. Didn't know that someone so professional and understanding and true to it's word existed in the business. I locked myself out once and they were there in  20 mins to assist. Heating stopped in the night and their out of hours assistance helped sort us out. Any problems or issues, were very promptly and effectively dealt with...I didn't even have to chase them. Our exit was quick, refunds took some time due to overlooked issues, which Victoria Jezzard looked into personally, and all done in 3 days. Dorathy was our handler and she was ace!! "
