How do you choose your estate agent?

Rightmove report that new instructions were up 2.1% in January, the first positive rise in over a year, but how do prospective sellers choose their agent?

A survey by the Property Academy has found ‘Confidence in ability’ 87% was rated by more sellers than any other single quality and far outweighed the minority of sellers (16%) who based their choice of agent on fees.

71% of respondents placed ‘Likeability and Trust’ in their top five criteria for choosing an agent in 2019, while back in 2009 just over half (57%) chose an agent based on trust.

Building a rapport, engaging and communicating regularly with both sellers and buyers throughout the house buying process, is something we are passionate about at Lock & key.  No doubt our ability to sell property plays a key role in people choice and we continue to be the number one choice in Melksham is a testament to our character and hard work.
