Our commitment to you

 

Our commitment is to give you a professional and personal service with personal regular updates during the selling and buying process. Communication is a paramount importance to us.

 

Our attention to detail

 

We know how best to bring a property to the market, how to present it and how to find the right purchaser. With full colour brochures including floor plans, professional photographs and plans where needed. Your property will be presented in the very best way.

Our sales team have expert knowledge and experience within Shropshire, that’s why we are here for you to help advise and give you the best experience possible.

We are only as good as our people. That’s why our sales team love what they do. They have fantastic knowledge of the area and will make the selling and buying of your property the best experience we can.

 

Web exposure

 

On 26th January, a new property portal will be launched by Agents Mutual and will be called www.onthemarket.co.uk. On the market will be owned and run by Estate Agents and has already got 4000 estate agency branches signed up including most of the large national firms.

The CEO of Agents Mutual Ian Springett successfully started Prime Location which was initially owned by the agents and was then sold to Zoopla. Agents Mutual currently has an initial marketing budget of £8m for onthemarket.

The one stipulation for estate agents is that they may only go on one other website as well as onthemarket to try and break up the duopoly of right move and zoopla.

Currently we advertise on the two main portals: Right move and Zoopla (incorporating Primelocation), however from the 1st of January we will be advertising with www.rightmove.co.uk and www.onthemarket.com for the reasons highlighted below:

Right move is the largest and most used property portal in terms of traffic volume and is the 8th most used website in the whole of the UK, below Google, Facebook and Amazon etc. 80% of our online enquires come from Right move and we believe onthemarket will compliment right move very well.

  • Zoopla is the 25th and Primelocation is down at 120th.
  • We believe many other firms will follow the 4000 branches already signed up to OTM and continue with right move while cancelling their agreements with ZPG.

We will also be on our own Balfours website which is about to be re launched and The London Office (logos). We use the latest technology to market your home combined with traditional services and values.

 

 

Local and National coverage

 

Marketing

A full marketing campaign gives one the confidence that all opportunities have been explored, but this can be tailored to your personal wishes. Internet advertising and accompanied viewings are included in the sale fee

 

Balfours Applicants

 

A brochure of the property will be immediately forwarded to all those applicants who are registered with Balfours looking for similar properties.

 

Advertising

 

Advertising will be in an agreed selection of local papers and magazines. All our advertisements will appear in colour.

Local Offices and London Office

 

Details of the property will be held in our Shrewsbury, Craven Arms and Hereford offices. In addition, details of your property will be sent to the London office in St James’ Place where they will hold hard copies of the brochure.

 

The London Office

 

Balfours are part of a collaboration of 37 independent agents throughout the country. We discuss ideas with them as there is no direct competition. We have a Move to the Country exhibition once a year in London which is organised by The London Office and marketed by London Agents Douglas and Gordon.

 

Editorial & PR

 

We will issue press releases when the property is launched. We will work with you to draft this release to include some history of the property, or people who have occupied it previously and any other interesting stories.

The release will be circulated to local and regional property Editors. We also maintain strong links to national property Editors and will look to promote your property wherever appropriate (an example is attached)

For Sale Board

 

We are very open about for sale boards and some people like to have one and others don’t. We do find that sometimes even just an arrow board is helpful especially if it is a rural property and hard to find.

 

People Power

 

Our sales team have national experience and a wealth of knowledge of the Shropshire market and are always on hand to help and advise.

 

Codes of conduct

 

We choose to be answerable to leading professional bodies. Not all estate agents want to be accountable for their actions. We like to maintain the highest professional standards by conforming to the guidelines of the industry's leading organisations. It's a clear sign you're dealing with a thoroughly reputable and respected agent

An empty property is not only losing rental income but also becomes a liability.

As soon as we are instructed on a property our aim is to sign up a reliable tenant who will take care of the property and pay a market rent. We know that our clients often do not want to be involved in the irritations of the residential or commercial lettings market so we also provide a property management service, keeping abreast of regulations so that our clients don't have to.

It should be no surprise that Balfours is Shropshire's largest residential lettings agent: We know how to position a property on the market. We have invested in a state of the art web based lettings database that generates 80% of our enquiries. We know what our clients are looking for and we know how to provide it.
