    Founded in 1963 by John Metcalf and originally located on Cookson Street Metcalf's are the longest established independent estate agents in the Fylde Coast.

    During this time they have developed a reputation for being the most trusted and professional Estate Agency, with a proven track record in selling property & the ability as a company to stand the test of time.
    Metcalf's have an unrivalled knowledge of the local property market and an absolute commitment to providing clients with the highest level of friendly, approachable service. Metcalf's provide the support you need from start to finish. All our staff are ready right now to share their wealth of knowledge about the local housing market with you.

    We have been selling properties by auction for over 50 years and this remains an important part of our business. In 1963 we began auctioning properties individually on the premises moving to composite property auctions in 1994, i.e. where a large number of properties are offered on a fixed day at a local venue. Thus bringing a large number of buyers together and enhancing selling prospects. 

    Our office opening hours are between 9am-5:30pm Monday to Friday and we open 9:30am-4pm on Saturday. At Metcalf's we understand that these hours are not always convenient for our clients so we provide out of hours viewings and valuations for your expediency.

    Property tips for buying
    • Buying the right house can be one of the most important decisions that you make - so it's important to get it right.

      Here are a few pointers in order to help you find your next dream home.

    • 1. A clinical approach
      On the first viewing, try and remain objective and view the property as a building that needs inspecting. Staying one step removed will help you to formulate a balanced view of the property.
    • 2. View it, view it and view it again
      What you see on the second and third visit may have escaped your attention the first time around. Not only that, but we would recommend that you try to view a property at different times of the day in order to see the bigger picture.
    • 3. Don't leave any stone unturned
      Are there any hairline cracks in the walls or ceiling? If so, make sure you investigate further. Ruling out structural issues from the outset could save you time, money and pain later down the line. Equally, don't be put off the property if you do spot something. A professional opinion will give you peace of mind and may provide you with the power to negotiate on price.
    • 4. Make sure it's not damp.
      Be wary of damp. Even if you can't see it damp can be present, so keep your nose tuned in for musty smells.
    • 5. Get familiar with the property and area
      Spend at least 30 minutes looking around the property and at least 30 minutes walking around the general area. The property might be fantastic but if the general area isn't what you're looking for then walking around the area might help you avoid walking into a mistake.
    • 6. Only fools rush in

      Visit the property at rush hour. Is it any different? Is there a build up of traffic at key commuting times? If so, it may influence your decision. Either way, it's best to know as much as you can before you commit.

    • 7. Our survey says...
      Make sure you have your prospective property surveyed. A seller doesn't have to tell you about any problems - and they may even try to cover them up. If a survey reveals the worst possible scenario and one that's enough to put you off the property, don't be disheartened. It may have saved you tens of thousands of pounds in the future.
    • 8. Use a checklist
      Checklists, like the one here , are a fantastic way in which to make sure you gather as much information as possible from your viewings. Don't be afraid to use them - they may help uncover critical information that could influence your decision.
    • 9. Think long-term
      When finding the property of your dreams it's easy to forget to think ahead. It's often worth asking yourself would you be happy living in the property three, four and five years from now - and will this property suit your long-term (and even short-term) plans?
    • 10. Find a good mortgage broker
      Once you've found someone who you feel comfortable with, make sure you have a written 'in principle' offer from the start as this can speed things up once you have an offer accepted.
