Nicholas George Ltd was established in 1988. Our experienced, knowledgeable staff are committed to offering you a personal and professional service. We are a truly independent, family owned company. We feel we can offer that bit of extra care and attention to detail and believe our approach will give you the best possible chance of selling your property for the best possible price. Please find below a little bit about how we do things.
Estate agents often have a bad name. This may be because people feel they are sometimes misled and are not always given honest and correct information. We endeavour to give you honest advice from the start. You may not always like what we say, but we believe telling you things as they are and being open from the start is the best policy.
This is so important in today's market. The vast majority of people viewing properties have found them on the internet. If you ask us to sell your property, it will be advertised in all the right places. As the vast majority of properties are now located online, it is no longer important to use a 'local agent' as most clients never even visit the office. If the property is within driving distance, we can sell it.
We use a professional photographer for all of our marketing material, at no extra cost to you. Find out more about him at www.benfearnhead.co.uk
EYE CATCHING FOR SALE BOARDS
Our 'For Sale' boards will certainly attract the eye of passing traffic. Approximately a quarter of enquiries come from the board so it is beneficial to have one. If however you do not feel
comfortable with this, then we can certainly go ahead and advertise without a board.
WINDOW DISPLAY AND BROCHURE
Your property will also have a window display in our prominent Moseley office. We will create a brochure for your property which you will be asked to approve. We will then be able to produce hard copies of this brochure to post or give out to people. We will also have an electronic copy which can be emailed out to people immediately.
We are constantly amazed at how so many agents ask the property owners to carry out their own viewings. We feel this is part of what you are paying us to do and also feel that this can be off putting to some potential purchasers. Unless you specifically want to do viewings, we are more than happy for you to leave this all to us.
ENERGY PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATE (EPC)
To put your property on the market, it will need to have a valid EPC. Once carried out, the EPC lasts for 10 years. We can arrange this certificate at a total cost of £90.00. If you have owned the property less than 10 years, it is likely that an EPC will already be in place, and we will be able to download it from the online national database.
We encourage people to register their requirements on our company website, which receives approximately 2000 unique visitors per month. We therefore hold a large database of potential purchasers on our system. As soon as we start advertising your property, it will be automatically emailed out to
anyone who has registered an interest in that type of property.
Our fees vary depending on your property and its current market value. We can offer a fixed fee or a percentage based commission. Our fees are always No sale - no fee, and we are sure you will find them most competitive.
SOLICITOR AND MORTGAGE ADVISOR
We have access to an excellent local solicitor with whom we have worked for a number of years. Having a solicitor who has a good relationship with your selling agent can aid a speedy sale and we have certainly found this to be the case. We also work closely with a financial advisor who can help you with any onward purchase and advise on any mortgage related issues.
