    Free Valuation of your Home for Marketing

      Sell your home Faster - For a better Price
      image cannot be displayed
      Getting the asking price right from the start seriously improves your chances of selling, and getting a better price. Sounds obvious doesn't it? Did you know that last year  67% of houses that appeared on Rightmove did not sell? When house hunters were questioned what would put them off viewing a house, most stated that if they felt it was overpriced, they would not view. 
      Statistics also tell us the number of  viewers on a new instruction half after the first two weeks. So when a house is new to the market, that is when it gets the most exposure, the most viewings, and often offers.
      We at   D W SMITH & Co, aim to price your home to get the best price possible within the market. We will not inflate an asking price to gain an instruction. By having a frank discussion at the start, we can save you time, and get the best price for the house. After all - it is about actually moving rather than just marketing your home!

      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        Simple, genuine and honest approach
        Moving with DW Smith was the most effortless encounter I have ever had with an estate agents. I have moved house 6 times in the past 12 years and David Smith and his colleagues made this move as stress free as a house move can possibly be. David obviously ensures his staff are trained and experienced in customer satisfaction because every single one of them were prepared to go that extra mile for myself and my partner. When we found our ideal home, our house was not even on the market. David showed us around the house we were hoping to buy and I was so refreshed by his honesty and genuine disposition that I asked him to value our house and place it on the market. Less than 48 hours and 5 separate viewings later, he had sold our property and had secured our offer on the house we wished to purchase. As we were expecting our first child approximately 8 weeks after commencing the purchase and selling procedure, we were needless to say concerned that we would not have enough time to move prior to the birth. David and his team knew our wishes and concerns and from the outset worked tirelessly to ensure all parties moved expediently and within agreed timescales. At every step of the way we received regular contact from the DW Smith office to keep us up to date with the progress, and DW Smith made sure they were kept informed by the firms of solicitors involved. At times there were hold ups, DW Smith were honest about the delays and the reasons why, rather than avoiding the prospect of delivering unwelcome news, even though the delays were out of their hands. This simple, genuine and honest approach made us feel involved, not out of the loop, and we were able to make realistic plans. We moved home 5 days before our daughter was born. I would certainly use DW Smith if I were ever to move home again and would wholeheartedly recommend DW Smith to any other prospective house buyers of sellers. The independent, family like service we received from David and his staf,f make DW Smith a huge cut above the rest. Pippa Dove

      • Seller Testimonial

        I highly recommend you to friends
        To David Smith and Colleagues. I have sold three properties in Hanham since 2004, all through your local company. I would like to take this opportunity to comment on the level of service I have received. Requesting accompanied viewing has never posed a problem, and has consistently been arranged for times that are convenient for me. Phones are always promptly answered; on rare occasions when I've left messages I have received return calls very speedily. The extent of your local knowledge is extremely helpful and informative. I have received sound advice regarding other services required when buying and selling houses; e g legal firms. I have always been treated courteously and professionally by all members of the team. I highly recommend you to friends and neighbours considering moving home. Long may you continue! Jeanette Cook (Mrs)
