Why Choose Us?
  • paragraph

    We are different from other agents!

    Long gone are the days where an agent could put a board up at a property and the phone would start ringing! In these difficult times, its often the behind the scenes work that can make or break a sale.

    At Goodwin Fox we are very proactive, no lead is left to go cold and all enquiries are acted upon quickly and followed up afterwards. For example we call to ensure a potential buyer has received that brochure we posted, that they have not then dismissed it from a driveby viewing because of a deceptive external appearance.

    We are open 24/7 by email or telephone, so buyers can call us at a time to suit them, perhaps when they have finally got the kids to bed!

    We advertise on all the major internet portals and have our own comprehensive website. Properties have full floorplans on both the printed sales details and the internet, we also include the important stuff like how much is the council tax and does it have a water meter?

    Our office is located close to the Sea Front and Valley Gardens, so window shoppers are never in short supply!

    The office is open 7 days a week, so we are available for viewings at a time to suit a buyer. If they can view your property on Sunday afternoon when most agents are closed, perhaps that can clinch an early sale!

    We firmly believe selling a house you haven't seen is very difficult, thats why at Goodwin Fox all members of the sales team will visit your property. When a buyer asks if we have a property to fit in their prized grand piano, we can immediately visualise the contenders!

    If you still need convincing to use us, we always have copies of independent market research showing our market share and sales success rates against other local agents. Just ask us for a copy or click on the links below.

    FOR EXAMPLE WE SOLD ALMOST 6 TIMES MORE THAN ANY OTHER AGENT IN HU19 DURING 2012!

    Perhaps you have an evening viewing with us or direct with a vendor and you are running late or need to cancel, you can ring us and we will sort for you.

    Our sales brochures are all printed on good quality A3 paper in a booklet format, so they wont fall to bits when you've got them spread all over the table or when the kids get their hands on them.

    We include comprehensive descriptions of rooms, a full floorplan with square footage and lots of photos. We include other important stuff like how much is the council tax, is it on a water meter and how do I find it from your office?

    Once you've found the property of your dreams, our team is there to help you every step of the way. We liase with your mortgage advisor and solicitors as the sale progresses, giving you regular updates along the way, so you dont need to spend your lunch hour on hold!

    We can liase with tradesmen if you need a quote for works required or a price for a new carpet and arrange meter readings for you and the vendor on completion day.

    We can even meet you at the property to hand over keys if you cant get here till out of hours, if the removal van is late for instance.

Additional Services
  • service

    Lettings

    We have built up an extensive portfolio of properties which we manage for our many landlords and offer an attractive property management package to remove most of the burden from renting out a property.

    With a large database of tenants and knowledge of the local area, you can rest assured that we can find the right tenant to look after your property.

    The two services we offer are a full property management service or a find a tenant only.

    In both cases we will create a detailed property brochure and floor plan, advertise the property online and conduct all viewings until a suitable tenant is found. The tenant will be credit and or referenced checked and a full and detailed inventory will be written on the property.

    The tenancy agreement will then be drawn up and the tenant will be signed in. We are A.R.L.A approved agents, and as such can hold the tenant's bond which will be protected under a government approved scheme.

     At this point the management of the property will be passed to the landlord on a find a tenant agreement, or we can continue to look after it under a full manangement service, to include rent collection, carrying out regular inspections and organising to remedy any repairs or problems the tenant may have.

    Please give us a call to discuss any aspects of our lettings service.

      We have already been telling everyone to use Goodwin Fox as you are highly recommended.

      We had been on the market previously with another agent but we felt let down with them, they were not helpful and didn't give us updates that often and were always asking for money for advertising.
