    FLEXIBILITY TO MAXIMISE SELLING YOUR HOME

    Our days and hours of operation are as flexible as the demands of the business require, so if this means a conversation during evenings or weekends because it suits you, then we make ourselves available to help.

    We do not expect you to undertake any viewings, as we accompany all property viewings, provide you with feedback and advise you immediately with any offers that are forthcoming.

    Importantly we are flexible in our approach to viewings too....making it easier for potential buyers to view your property outside of the normal operating hours, especially weekends and evenings when demand is high...an approach that brings great results!

    Qualifying any potential buyers, and dealing with the negotiations, we aim to advise you on the best way to deal with offers to secure a price that is agreeable to both parties.

      Excellent local and friendly service
      The service provided by Novahomes was absolutely first class and all of the staff were extremely supportive and helpful. The sale of my house went through smoothly and I felt that I could always phone them if I wanted advice or reassurance. They completed all of the viewings for me and updated me regularly with regards to the progress of the sale. It was great being able to talk to people who genuinely cared about your circumstances and they were all very kind and professional. Excellent local and friendly service.   Tracy

      the best thing you do is actually feedback!
      Feedback wise I think the best thing you guys do is actually, feedback! It's always good to know if viewers are interested or not, and nothing worse that preparing your house for a viewing and then hearing nothing more.

      the person you instruct needs to take it seriously
      Selling your house and finding your new home is a serious business. So the person you instruct to do this for you needs to take it seriously, it needs to really matter to them. In Rob Lingard of Novahomes (Teignbridge) Ltd we found such a person.

      the best service I've ever had...
      I cannot thank Sue and her team enough for their help in selling a "difficult property" they were always at the end of a telephone when needed and were able to keep me informed at all times! Having bought and sold more than 15 properties in my lifetime I can say this is the best service I've ever had from an Estate agent. "

    • Seller Testimonial

      responses were fast and polite and always helpful
      We sold our home through Nova Homes and this was a decision we are happy we made. Sue Saunders and her team were always a phone call or an email away for help or advice, and responses were fast and polite and always helpful. The whole process was made easier and generally better because of them. Their prices are extremely fair and cheaper than some other estate agents who charge much more but offer no discernible difference in the service they offer. If you want to sell your home in Torbay then think Nova Homes every time. James McLaughlan
    • Seller Testimonial
