Selling your property in Morley,Leeds or Wakefield
  • paragraph

    Sell your house or apartment with Onwards & Upwards and experience a totally different approach.

    Here are 10 great reasons to sell your home through us

  • paragraph

     1. We're confident your house or flat will sell

    We use sophisticated technology to track every property sale in your postcode - so we can tell you what's selling, where, how quickly, what the average sale price is, and how many viewings it usually takes.

    We will advise you about your property's saleability and how to improve its 'kerb appeal' for a faster, higher-value sale. And not only do we work hard to attract buyers, we also pre-qualify them so you only deal with serious enquiries.

    Plus, we're open longer: 8:30am to 8pm on weekdays, 9am to 5pm Saturday.

    2. We earn less if we sell your house for less

    Most estate agents would rather you sold your house sooner, for less, than waiting for a higher offer. That's because the incremental commission is smaller for them, and they want to move onto the next full sale. We, on the other hand, reduce our selling fee (on a sliding scale) if you sell your house for less than the full asking price. That means we're incentivised to close the best deal for you! You get the maximum price for your house or we get less....it's simple.

    3. We won't tie you in or play games

    The vast majority of estate agents will tie you in for up to 6 months with a contract that will punish you if you sell your house in some other way (so you could pay two lots of commission). You can leave us at any time for any reason; all we ask is 2 weeks' notice.

    Unlike many estate agents, we won't overvalue your house just to get your business, and we don't send our friends and relatives to 'view' your house so it looks like you're getting more viewings.

    4. We'll create a marketing plan just for you

    We'll find out all the essential information about your home-what changes have you made? What do you love about it? What have you noticed about living here? This helps to build an understanding of why your home is special and why it's priced the way it is.We'll help you improve your 'kerb appeal' (should you move those bins? What about that dead hanging basket? How about a lick of paint on the front door?) We'll produce an accurate valuation with our 8-page property reportWe'll produce great sales literature, including photos taken using a high-quality camera with a wide-angle lens and a tripod (and our staff are trained in how to get the best shots of a property). We even use a compass to work out what time of day to get shots which put your home in the best light.We'll build a list of action points for you and for us, and help to ensure they're all completed on timeWe'll ensure we have all your contact details and the best ways and times to get in touchWe'll schedule review meetings to ensure everything is progressing and there's no problem with communicationWe'll take a flexible, creative approach to marketing your home-which could include an open-house event or featuring in a local leaflet-drop.
  • paragraph

    5. We'll create a sales pack just for you

    When you register your home with us we'll create a sales pack which can be shown to prospective buyers during viewings. We'll cover everything from the council tax band to local schools (right down to copies of Ofsted reports) and amenities like leisure facilities and supermarkets. Not only is this helpful but it builds a sense of local community.

     6. Our recommended expert could help you prepare your home

    We can put you in touch with an expert in preparing homes for sale. She has a string of successful sales behind her-all of which happened in under a month! She's got selling houses down to such a fine art; she's even published a book about it.

    7. All of our viewings are accompanied

    This means it's less awkward for you to show people round, and we can provide the viewer's feedback to you without delay. Plus, according to Prime Location, you're twice as likely to get an offer from a potential buyer on accompanied viewings.

     8. FREE help with de-cluttering when you move

    We support St Jude's Furniture Store (registered charity number 1053992) who will collect any unwanted items when you move for FREE - furniture, toys, bedding... whatever you would normally take to a charity shop or ask the council to take away. That means no van hire, no collection charge, no time off work, no moving things you don't want, no landfill, no trips to the charity shop. And it's all for a good cause: St Jude's will repair, sell or recycle your items.

     9. We take on board your motivations

    We don't just take a property on-we also take on your needs and concerns. We'll ask you about how urgent your sale is, how flexible you can be, what your worries might be, where you're going next, and more. This enables us to be much more proactive, flexible and creative on your behalf.

    10. We don't just wait for the phone to ring

    We're particularly proactive when it comes to promoting your property and looking for buyers. We won't give all our trade secrets away, but we leaflet every home in the local area several times a year, we advertise, we run an efficient website, we keep our ear to the ground, and we talk to other agents.

Buying a property in Morley, Leeds or Wakefield?
  • paragraph

    If you're looking to buy a house or flat in Morley, East Ardsley, Gildersome, Tingley, Drighlington, West Ardsley or Churwell  Onwards & Upwards offers a refreshingly different experience.

  • paragraph

    1. We're open longer

    7 days a week, you can call into see us between 8.30am - 5.30pm Mon to Wed, 9.30am - 5.30pm Thu, 8.30am - 5.30pm Fri, 9 - 4pm Sat and 11 - 2 Sunday BUT REMEMBER you can Telephone us right up until 6.30pm Mon - Thu.

    2. We're picky about our properties

    If a vendor approaches us with a property for which they want an unrealistic price, we won't take it on - simple as that.

     We also specialise, which means we know Morley, Churwell, Gildersome, Drighlington, Tingley, East Ardsley and West Ardsley really well. We're interested in moving houses, not having them stuck on our books.

    3. Our properties are realistically priced

    We don't believe in over-pricing just to attract vendors, or in slashing prices later for a quick sale. If we did that, you'd have no idea what our properties are really worth.

    Instead, we use technology to track the market in the area where you're looking to buy: this tells us what's selling, where, how quickly, and what the prices are. It also helps us to value properties very accurately.

    4. We won't ignore you

    A lot of estate agents aren't proactive when dealing with buyers. We'll keep checking back with you to see what you're thinking and whether your 'wants' list has changed.

    In fact, we're so proactive that we'll search the whole market for you, including properties listed with other agents. Why? Because we know that if we help you now, you'll tell your friends, colleagues and family about us, and you'll give us a call the next time you move

  • paragraph

    5. FREE help with de-cluttering when you move

    We support St Jude's Furniture Store (registered charity number 1053992), who will collect any unwanted items when you move for FREE - furniture, toys, bedding... whatever you would normally take to a charity shop or ask the council to take away.

     That means no van hire, no collection charge, no time off work, no moving things you don't want, no landfill, no trips to the charity shop. And it's all for a good cause: St Jude's will repair, sell or recycle your items.

    6. We listen carefully

    We don't see potential buyers as just a way to meet our vendors' needs, or to shift properties - we also take your needs and concerns very much into consideration.

    We'll ask you how quickly you want to move, how flexible you can be, what your worries might be, where you want to live, what your wish-list is, and more.

    7. We're nice people to deal with

    It helps when your estate agent is professional, helpful and reliable - and we're all of these. We're easy to talk to, we return calls just as soon as we can, and we'll work very hard on your behalf. And you'll only deal with one named person - not the usual three or four!
