We sell in an average of 37 days which is the optimum timescale on the market at 104.8% of the asking price compared with the national figure of 97.1% 

On a £200,000 property, this equates to £15,400 more if you sell with us! Don’t be a mere statistic – go with the best, not the biggest.

As family-run, independent estate agents we make sure that all of our local knowledge and expertise is passed on to you the client. That’s how we achieve the best results.

Lettings

 

In 2020, 100% of all properties listed were let out and void periods were kept to a minimum. Additionally, we achieved increases in rental value both on tenancy renewal and when relisting. This ensured that our landlords continued to derive optimum returns on their properties.

Whether you are looking to sell or rent – We know that Home Truths can offer you a full, professional and competitively priced service. We can assist you with your plans using our process which is designed to maximise the value of your home.

Our marketing approach

Home Truths provides a compelling combination of marketing services based upon first class Presentation, Exposure and Service (PES).

We will discuss all of the above with you to ensure that we have a bespoke marketing plan for your property. This is provided to you as part of the competitive fee agreed at the time of instruction.

Presentation

Professional Photography

We use professional photographers to capture your property at its very best and show your home off to all potential buyers. Alongside this we use floorplans to enhance the listing and allow potential buyers/tenants to understand the flow and layout of the property. All of our floorplans are to scale and show the total square footage of the property.

Professional Video

The use of video provides buyers with the best possible medium to understand both the lifestyle they are buying into and the flow of the home.  We offer a range of different types of video material. From fairly simplistic media tours through to full videos including drone footage.  Our specialty live tours either guided or set to music really do show properties to the highest standard.  They also give potential buyers/tenants a unique view of the property they are interested in before they come to view.

Exposure

A ready audience for a secure and timely sale

We also embrace more traditional marketing methods by actively managing our large database of active prospective buyers/tenants regularly. This means that we can always market your home to our contacts before it goes “live” when it is published and whenever there is a change to the marketing.

We also have ideas of prospective buyers who will be genuinely interested in your home. 

Extensive property website coverage

The professional imagery is used to create a standout brochure to display on the Home Truths website and in our office windows. Your property will also be featured across the largest property portals of Rightmove, Zoopla and On The Market, as well as a wide range of smaller portals, and on social media.

Large audience on social media

Love it or hate it… social media is a great way to showcase your home to interested parties.

We use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to market your home, including a Facebook Live service where we show potential viewers around your home, Live!

Not everyone is registered with an agent so this can be the start of their home moving journey that they didn’t even know they were about to go on!

Posting to over 3000 of our followers on Facebook and generating boosted/targeted posts to reach people who are not following us previously we can truly maximise the reach of your home’s advertising.

And even more...
We can also promote your home more widely with the use of Premium Listing and Featured Property tools on Rightmove, which are included free of charge in the marketing process as appropriate.

Service

What makes us different?

Taking excellent photographs and putting homes to market on the internet is the easy part.

What makes us different is the service we provide.

All our properties go through a defined property journey where we actively work to secure early viewings at a launch event.

Accompanied viewings and regular contact with vendors & landlords enable us to work in partnership to secure a sale or letting agreement that’s often above the marketing price.

Agreeing on the sale on your home is just the start of the process and the rest needs careful management which is often overlooked.

Once sold subject to contract you can rely on our continued proactive support with sales progression including liaison with solicitors and a wide range of parties for the lettings to make sure that you can make your next move and timely sale and completion.

The Home Truths Promise

When it comes to customer service, Home Truths simply can’t be beaten. We are fiercely proud of the reputation we have built in the local area and the relationships we have built with our customers.

Our promise to you is that we will sell your home at a price you are happy with and within a timescale that works for you.
