16 REASONS TO USE ALAN IVES
ESTABLISHED IN 1984
You’ll be dealing with an established professional agency with a good reputation to maintain.
AN INDEPENDENT FIRM
Having the owner of the business working hands on means swift decisions can be made. No red tape or “jobsworth” corporate policies. It also means that as we only get paid on results you can be sure we have the incentive to work hard for you.
OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK
We are open from 9am till 6pm Monday to Saturday and 10am till 4pm Sundays and Bank Holidays.
OFFICE LOCATED IN VERY PROMINENT POSITION
This means that anyone seriously looking to buy or rent a property in the area is likely call into us. If your property is on our books then it will be offered to all those people, resulting in a quick sale or let and at the best price.
WE DEAL WITH BOTH SALES AND LETTINGS
This helps us sell more property as many of our landlords are always looking for another buy to let property, and often they are cash buyers. It also means that if you buy through us we can also advise on the letting potential. If you currently rent your property and want to sell, we may be able to find a buyer who will continue the tenancy, thus saving you from having to evict the tenant.
MEMBERS OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF ESTATE AGENTS
This means your property will be in safe hands.
THE MOST UP TO DATE INTERNET SITE
Our internet site is updated daily providing immediate contact with the market.
UNIQUE GUARANTEED RENT SCHEMES FOR LANDLORDS
We can offer guaranteed rent via a Local Authority or by our own special scheme. Please contact us for more information.
EXPERT BUY TO LET ADVICE
We’ve been handling lettings since 1990 so have a wealth of experience to draw upon. So please feel free to contact us with any questions you have regarding the rent we could achieve for any property you are considering buying to rent out. Even if you’ve found the property through another agency we’d still be happy to help.
FREE LANDLORDS AND TENANTS INFORMATION PACKS
Just ask and we’ll send you a free information pack without obligation.
NO SALE - NO FEE, AND NO HIDDEN CHARGES
Just what we say. We tell you our charges up front and even if you change your mind and decide not to sell you owe us nothing. Therefore you risk nothing by asking us to sell your property because unless you move you don’t pay us a penny.
RENT DEPOSITS IN SAFE HANDS
Being members of the National Association of Estate Agents requires us to adhere to strict regulations regarding protecting clients money. We have to keep clients’ money in a separate designated account and have these figures audited annually. If a NAEA member does run off with your money you’re protected by their bonding scheme which the members contribute to. Remember, currently letting agents who aren’t members of a professional body can, and often do, mix their clients’ money with their own. Need we say more?
FREE PRE-SALE ADVICE AND VALUATIONS
We are always happy to visit your property and give you an idea of value, whether selling or renting. In addition we can give you helpful hints and tips to enable you to prepare your property so that it attracts buyers or tenants. All this is free of charge and without obligation.
NO HARD SALE TACTICS
We understand moving home is a big commitment and some people need more time than others before making a decision. That’s why we pride ourselves in offering as much help and advice as you need, but we never try and push you into making a rushed decision.
Like most other things you tend to get what you pay for. We offer an excellent service at a reasonable price, but we are not a cut price agency. When dealing with a property that is worth tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands its not worth taking a risk to save a few hundred.
Senior staff have many years experience and knowledge acquired over the years. At Alan Ives Estates the answers are just a telephone call away.
