We believe the selection of an estate agent by a builder or developer is one of the most important decisions made during the development process and we believe it could directly affect the success and profitability of a project
Not all estate agents are the same, and it is important to work with an agent that knows the new build market and that will put you and your interests first.
Multi award winning Ryder & Dutton has established itself as one of the only agents in the region specialising in New Homes, with a dedicated department offering a complete sales and marketing service.
We work closely with developers at every stage in the development process, and can advise on the right product mix for the site, accommodation layouts, specification, pricing and much more.
paragraphOur experienced team have extensive knowledge of all of the individual developments and property types available, and can offer purchasers a friendly and personal service guiding them through the whole buying process from the initial viewing right through to handing the keys over on legal completion (and of course everything in between).
paragraphHELP TO BUY AND MORTGAGES
HOW CAN HELP TO BUY HELP YOU?
Help to Buy is a Government backed scheme designed to help people purchase a new property with just 5% deposit by way of an equity loan of up to 20%, allowing purchasers access to 75% LTV (loan-to-value) mortgages which offer competitive rates.
The aim of the Help to Buy scheme is to increase the supply of new homes in addition to lower deposit mortgages with more favourable borrowing rates to the market.
Help to Buy is only available on new build homes with a maximum purchase price of up to £600,000.
The Help to Buy scheme is available to all new homebuyers, not just first time buyers.
At Ryder & Dutton we have experienced mortgage advisors who specialise in Help to Buy, ensuring potential purchasers are given the best possible advice, providing you with peace of mind that we do all we can to ensure the sale proceeds all the way to completion.
We can provide assistance with the Help to Buy scheme, guiding buyers through the process from completing applications to managing expiry dates, liaising with solicitors and the Help to Buy agents.
The Government is particularly keen to encourage registrations from small and medium sized house builders.
Registration is not only simple, it is completely free of charge and is available to all house builders and developers.
The biggest advantage of registering your properties onto the Help to Buy scheme is that it exposes your property to a wider market, attracting buyers who otherwise may not have been able to afford to buy a new build property, making owning a home on your development affordable for a wider range of buyers.
At Ryder & Dutton, we work with Mortgage Advice Bureau to provide an effective and competitive mortgage service which is fully independent and tailored to meet your specific needs and circumstances.
Our advisers have extensive knowledge of Help to Buy mortgages, ensuring potential purchasers are given the best possible advice, providing you with peace of mind that we do everything we can to ensure your sale proceeds to completion.
"85% OF PEOPLE START THEIR SEARCH FOR A NEW HOME ONLINE"
At Ryder & Dutton we believe that regardless of the size of your development, the same marketing approach to that of the major house builder is required and we can help you achieve this.
It works on the principal that the best position to sell your houses from is your site, with the back up of good marketing material, a well presented show house, professional sales staff, and extensive marketing coverage.
Our marketing service is designed to place your properties in front of the largest possible marketplace though our extensive branch network.
85% of people start their search for a new home online so our marketing approach is supported by the most extensive Internet coverage available using the most relevant property portals which includes the likes of 'Rightmove' and 'On The Market'.
"THE GREATEST BENEFITS ARE ACHIEVED BY ATTRACTING PROSPECTIVE PURCHASERS"
Over 40 years of experience has shown us that the greatest benefits are achieved by attracting prospective purchasers to your site.
Once at the site we can show them around your show house and sell the dream to them. This is particularly important for off-plan sales, as prospective purchasers may not understand architects drawings and will benefit hugely from being able to walk around the show house and get a feel for the quality and specification of the build. With the right marketing mix and a good show house or sales facility, you put yourselves in the same position as the larger, national house builder and we believe we can provide you with the sales and marketing expertise required to enable you to have as good a marketing presence as any competitor.
paragraphAt Ryder & Dutton we recognise the need to deal with new home sales differently to re-sale properties. We pride ourselves on a first class dedicated marketing service with all new build properties marketed centrally by a team of people with extensive experience in new build sales. Backed up by the local knowledge and prominent high street presence of our 17 strong branch network, we can give you the widest possible marketing coverage for your new development.
paragraphHOW ARE WE DIFFERENT
We provide development appraisals and ongoing review of sale price in line with current market conditions/trends. We also provide you with advice on the right product mix for the site, accommodation layouts and specification and pricing, working with you and your architect from the outset to ensure finished house types are in line with what purchasers want from a new home. We will also handle purchaser selection of extras, fixtures and fittings and colour choices.
'Off-plan' marketing will commence once work begins on site. We will provide a prominent site board and will market your properties as 'coming soon' on our website, discuss scheme concepts and pre-register potential purchasers to encourage 'off-plan' sales.
Your marketing materials will be displayed within the branch local to your development in surrounding areas. Through our website we provide extensive email and web marketing.
We provide sales staff to work from your sales centre/show house. Staff are trained to the highest standards and will be familiar with your site and the different plot/house types available.
Accompanied weekend viewings by appointment are provided. They are conducted by experienced New Homes sales staff giving you peace of mind and security.
Internet advertising is crucial and our highly regarded interactive and user friendly website is second to none in providing you with an abundance of information. It is updated daily and buyers can view:
· Unlimited number of property photographs
· Detailed floor plans
· Detailed property descriptions
· Location films
We are the only agent to have a unique Rightmove microsite dedicated to New Homes, highlighting our commitment to providing a tailored service for the sale of new homes. The microsite advertises only our new developments and offers a wide range of information for builders and purchasers, guiding both through every stage of the process.
Your properties will also be listed on Rightmove and On The Market through Ryder & Dutton's subscription, saving you £1000s. They will also be listed on our own website which attracts nearly 1 million potential purchasers each year!
Once released to the market, your properties are matched to buyers who are registered on our applicant database at the initial point of marketing and then on an on-going basis as new applicants are registered.
New developments benefit from stand alone, prominent advertisements in the local press. We believe in order to achieve maximum impact these should be designated developer advertisements.
We can design and produce your ads and provide a schedule of advertising based upon your requirements and your budget. Due to the volume of advertising we place, we attract preferential rates and are able to pass these savings on to you.
Our various social media channels are used to support the marketing campaign and promote development details.
Twitter and Facebook are used to share launch details, open weekends, and to invite purchasers to attend open viewings.
We also have a graphic design department which helps us to create written and video blogs, along with marketing campaigns to target suitable potential purchasers.
