    With Rightmove releasing their recent house price index we thought you may want to check out James Ross comments below ''Miles Shipside always seems to tell it how it is and his comments certainly coincide with what our team have been seeing over the last 7 months, excellent sales levels, huge demand for property throughout our operating areas but not enough stock to cover the huge demand. While mortgage rates remain low and demand for property is so high I am recommending my potential sellers go to the market ASAP to secure a sale, August 2016 was one of our strongest sales months so why wait until September to sell? I also predict a rise in the interest rates early next year and feel this will then mean more houses come to the market and there will be lower levels of potential buyers as they will understandably be wary of buying. If you are interested in getting a valuation or considering selling this is the time to do it as we have lots of buyers looking to secure a home move now and house prices remain as high as ever....for now''.

    When an estate agents has been operating since 1840 like ELR you can rest assured that you are in safe hands. We have seen more rises and falls in the market than any other operating agent in Sheffield and our team provide the very best advice when looking to place your property on the market and this leads to our clients getting the very best price available.

    Every home is different and therefore not all our marketing material is the same, for example a house with a stunning view will surely need an elevated photo to capture that view in the best possible way. We use state of the art drone cameras for this purpose, capturing not only the shot of the house but also the stunning backdrop to truly reflect what your house is all about.

    ELR have always looked to explore innovative marketing ideas, we were after all the 1st agents in Sheffield to use colour photography in the local paper, on our brochures and also offered floorplans for every property, all of which are now common practice and copied by our competitors  With this in mind we are always looking to embrace different ways to showcase our properties for example we now offer professionally taken photos for every property we place on the market and the option of a 3 dimensional plan if our client prefers. With more people using their phones to search for property than ever before our impressive website has been recently redesigned to be viewed on any form of media device, resizing to fit even the mobile phone giving the user the best possible viewing platform in any format they choose to access our information resulting in more potential purchasers for our clients.  When you combine this with innovative marketing techniques such as open houses, virtual tours, 'premium listings' and 'featured properties' on the nations favourite website, Rightmove and our brand new 'ebrochures' packed with interesting info on the surrounding area its easy to see why ELR are still selling houses for the proud people of Sheffield. 

    If you have any questions as to how we can offer you a personalised service why don't you call James Ross on 07773821068 to discuss how ELR can be of service to you and give you a competitive edge when selling?

    James Ross MNAEA - Director

    James came to ELR in 2004 and has 14 years of industry experience to his name. He is our main Valuer for the South West suburbs of Sheffield and is an expert in all things property! Forward thinking and full of energy, James knows how to attract the most number of potential buyers to your property and in turn to get you the best price. James has built up a great list of applicants and understands exactly what they are looking for, so much so that he can often find a buyer for a property before it even hits the open market!

    Out of work - As a father of four, James is kept pretty busy out of work, but he does try to find time for his other passions - cooking and cricket! His perfect Sunday would be a walk around Blacka Moor, stopping off for a quick pint in his local, before heading home to cook lunch for his family and friends.
