Our lovely owners of a property in a two bedroom house in Forest Park ask me to help them with their move. It was a big emotional move because of the amount of time they had owned the house - circa 30 years…
But the goal is hardly ever to just sell; the priority was to find a new home with move space.
The sale was agreed once to a buyer who instructed solicitors and confirmed he would wait for them to find. Knowing up front that they were very motivated but needed time the buyer said he would wait. He didn’t, unfortunately it happens sometimes and the two owners were really upset. They had a few weeks with the house off market to re gain motivation and we stayed in contact.
At the second time of marketing I found them a lovely couple and we agreed a price.
The search was on again!
This is where our ‘Off Market’ search came in to play. The owners found it really hard to get a property secured and unfortunately got let down 3 times by some of the local agents with offers.
BUT! After valuing a house that was perfect for them we arranged an off market viewing. It went really well and they brought the property. As one of our clients they got full exclusivity and everyone got the result they were all looking for.
