    Which agent to choose

Hudson Moody Estate Agents in Dunnington
  • paragraph

    image cannot be displayed
    When the time comes to sell your home, how do you choose which estate agent to appoint? You have a tremendous choice of agencies and, on the surface, most appear to do more or less the same thing. But there is far more to moving than simply finding a buyer, and it is critical that when the time comes, you choose the right agent for you, your property and your situation. A good starting point is to find a local agent who clearly understands the stresses involved in moving and who accepts that you are likely to want to sell your home with minimal stress and for the most attractive figure the current market will pay within a convenient timescale. Many agents make unrealistic claims and rash promises, so here are some guidelines which we hope will help you choose the right agent to sell your home.
  • paragraph

    Local Expertise:

    Buyers overwhelmingly prefer to work with local experts, who they regard as "in the know", so choose a well-established local agent. Unlike most agents Alex McClean purely specialises in selling homes in the villages to the east of York (outside the York Ring Road) from Murton, Dunnington towards the market town of Pocklington and south east of York including (amongst other villages) Warthill, Holtby, Scoreby, Gate Helmsley, Stamford Bridge, High Catton, Low Catton,Scoreby, Newton upon Derwent and Sutton upon Derwent. His aim is to become the leading local expert and agent of choice in your area. Other specialist villages include: Melbourne, East Cottingwith, Ellerton, Bielby, Allerthorpe, Everingham, Seaton Ross, Aughton, Skirpenbeck, Scrayingham, Full Sutton, Bishop Wilton, Wilberfoss, Kexby, Fangfoss, Burnby, Millington, Yapham & Thornton.


    Beware! It is well-known that some agents deliberately over-value in order to impress you to secure your instruction, so don't fall into the trap of simply choosing the agent with the highest valuation. An inflated price attracts the wrong buyers to your property, and the right buyers never see it, resulting in the property going stale on the market. This often leads to the property falling below its true market value. The issue of correct valuation is paramount. It is critical that you appoint an agent who not only has a track record of successful sales in the area (not just properties on the market) but also has a thorough working knowledge of current buyer activity, and who can interpret prevailing market trends to your advantage.

  • paragraph


    Many sellers are unaware of the considerable differences between agencies and have no alternative than to decide whom to appoint on the level of commission charged. This is often a huge mistake and is a bit like buying a car purely on price considerations. All cars go from A to B, but the vast price differential is related to issues of quality, reliability, security, performance and the whole driving experience. The same is true of estate agents. Some agents simply cannot afford to provide a level of service that is either effective, or makes the selling experience hassle-free. For example, they are often the last firms to provide adequate staff training or post-offer support, resulting in missed offers, slower sales and lower prices. Cut-price estate agents usually require a higher turnover of stock in order to survive and they are therefore likely to be less concerned about securing the best price for their clients. The net amount in your pocket is surely more important than the percentage fee charged...


    Too many agencies only communicate good news! That's easy! Good agents are in frequent contact with their clients and have the guts to advise you if anything needs to be done to improve your chances of an impressive sale.:

  • paragraph


    If an agent is not enthusiastic about your property - don't instruct them. A positive approach to selling your home is essential if buyers are to be inspired into buying your home.

    Independent Agency:

    Choose an agent that is owned and run by property professionals who are interested in your sale, rather than by people who are simply employed to build an empire. Could you get hold of a Diretor if you needed to? Hudson Moody is run Ben Hudson. Contact telephone number is: 01904 650650

    7-day availability

    Is your agent available 7 days a week and outside typical working hours? To either register a potential buyer for your property or assist in any sales progression queries.


    Good estate agents provide floorplans on their particulars. They are far more helpful and accurate than the flowery descriptions some agents still use, and buyers find them invaluable. Floorplans improve the quality of viewings because they weed out clearly unsuitable purchasers and can motivate those who might otherwise not have viewed your property.


    Make sure you choose an agent who advertises properties similar to yours in the local press. Chances are that they will already have a large pool of buyers who have enquired about similar homes to yours. However, be wary of the agent who promises to advertise your property every week with a postage stamp size ad! This is simply paying lip-service to you and has very little to do with marketing strategy as it can cheapen your property and lead to over-exposure.


    The internet is a valuable tool in estate agency. But don't be impressed by any "hit" claims. All web-enabled agents are exposed to many buyers, but how well do they qualify those buyers when it comes to discussing your home. It is very easy for a "buyer" to register a passing interest. It takes a well-trained agent to identify those buyers who have a serious and pressing need to move. Find out how easy it is for buyers to use the agent's property search facility by visiting their website yourself. Is it impressive, state-of-the-art, and does it provide useful buying and selling advice?

    Property Portals:

    Over 80% of buyers use the internet when looking for a property. So you need to be sure that your property is found and promoted - quickly and easily. An agent might have a great website and that's fine, but do they subscribe to the most effective property portals, because this is how buyers are directed to your property when they search using the search engines such as Google, Ask Jeeves, Excite or Yahoo. The UK's market leading site Rightmove .co.uk has over 80% of the traffic looking for property and it is important that you use an agent who is listing here. At Hudson Moody we also are able to upgrade your property to a premium listing to help it stand out from others . 

  • paragraph

    After-Sales Liaison
    Some agents think the sale is done when a buyer is found, and some sales negotiators are incentivised to arrange sales, but not necessarily to see them through to completion. Many a sale has been lost due to poor follow-up or inadequate liaison with surveyors or solicitors. About 35% of sales arranged in England and Wales fall through (although far fewer than this in our case). So choose an agent that is also dedicated towards sales progression and employs people who are trained to spot potential difficulties long before they arise, and who focus their time working towards a successful outcome.

      provided us with really personal service
      We are glad we chose Hudson Moody to sell our house. Apart from charging a competitive fee, we were also impressed with their agent. Alex is professional and his knowledge of the villages East of York is second to none. Alex provided us with a really personal service and followed up issues promptly; he was often better informed about what was going on during the process than our solicitor! This proved invaluable when problems were occurring elsewhere in the house buying chain. Communication was excellent, and any advice given was offered and not forced upon us in any way. We are very happy to recommend Alex, Hudson Moody, to others selling their property

      'This is a first class firm and I received first class treatment.'

    • Seller Testimonial

      appreciated the services of a personal agent

      Mr & Mrs S, Dunnington

      'I as very happy with every aspect of the service provided by Hudson Moody and I particularly appreciated the services of a personal agent. It was vital to the success of our sale to have someone with a deep knowledge of the local market. I would strongly recommend them to anyone looking to sell their house, who wants a quick, professional and friendly service.'

    • Seller Testimonial

       received good advice throughout

      Mr & Mrs G, Holtby

      'We had a requirement to sell our property, and invited 3 estate agents to value the property and to discuss with us our objectives from the sale. One agent was clearly looking for a quick sale and grossly undervalued the property; the next showed little interest on our requirements and objectives giving a production line approach to the sale, the third was Alex McClean of Hudson Moody. Several things are important to us, being listened to, having good constructive advice, and having an easy uncomplicated working arrangement that considers the views of the seller, the buyer, and the professional requirement. It was a good decision when we placed our property with Alex and Hudson Moody, as all of these boxes were ticked plus a few more, including courtesy, consideration and acceptance of our views and opinions. Alex knows the area, in which he operates very well, has a good inbuilt comparator for price, value and area and gave good advice throughout the process. We believe that we had a desirable property with a value of circa £500k and it was sold in a reasonably short time. We did not feel under any pressure at any stage and received good advice throughout, it is always difficult moving home; but the Estate Agents role in our move was the least traumatic of any previous sale, so I have no difficulty in recommending Alex McClean of Hudson Moody based on our personal experience.'

    • Seller Testimonial

      never less than 100% professional

      Mr & Mrs D'Arcy, Barmby Moor

      'It feels really good to have concluded the sale of our property, and we are very grateful to you. We got in touch in Spring and it turned out to be an excellent decision on our part. Over the past 6 months you have worked tirelessly on our behalf. Given the uncertainty in the market, your initial assessment of what might be achieved wasn't far off the mark. I think the realism of your estimate was well proved by the huge amount of interest we had. Friends were incredulous, when told them the high number of viewings that we had. We appreciated, too, being kept totally in the picture through your regular bulletins and innumerable telephone-calls, the latter even when we had an offer during our summer-holiday in France! What pleased us most, I think, was dealing with someone who from the outset we felt we could entirely trust, and who was never less than 100% professional. Thank you for steering us through a difficult process in such a supportive, and friendly, way.'

    • Seller Testimonial

      available for me even on an evening or weekend.

      Mrs P, Melbourne.

      'I would like to thank Alex for all his help in the selling of my property. This has been the 3rd house sale for me in the last 10 years I found dealing with you on a one to one basis so much better than going through an office and speaking to different staff and not getting that 100% commitment that you have provided. You have made the sale so much easier this time as you always kept me up to speed with developments and feed back with regards to the viewings, which I add you were available for me even on an evening or weekend. Thank you for also keeping me up to date and chasing the solicitors and buyers towards the end, you were a great help and would certainly recommend you to anyone moving in your area'

    • Seller Testimonial

      outstanding service throughout the selling process

      Gate Helmsley

      Hudson Moody provided with outstanding service throughout the selling process. The house was valued at the correct price in the first place to ensure the viewings which subsequently achieved the sale we wanted. Throughout selling we were contacted of any updates which kept all parties well informed and up to date. I would definitely recommend Hudson Moody and Alex McClean for future sales and we have been extremely happy with the way we have been dealt with.

    • Seller Testimonial

      Can't really beleve how quickly my house sold

      Murton York

      Just to say a big Thank You, I still can't really believe how quickly my house sold, I was thinking six months at the best but never dreamt it would be less than three weeks, and how smoothly everything went from start to finish. I've said again that this will be the last move, but if not I shall certainly be on the phone to Hudson-Moody. I've already recommended you, and I've had e-mails from friends wanting to know how it is I've moved so fast!
