Why Should You Use Campbells?

1) We Want To Help You Every Step Of The Way

A good agent doesn’t just help you sell your house. A good agent recognises that there is a much bigger picture that you’re trying to deal with, from getting your property ready for sale to choosing removals firms to changing locks and getting broadband installed.

Campbells can help you with almost every aspect of your move, either personally or by putting you in contact with reliable, reputable professionals who can help you.

 

For example, have you considered any of the following that we can help you with?

  • Mortgages
  • Legal service
  • Conveyancing
  • Relocation services
  • Removal companies
  • Secure storage facilities
  • Contractors, such as plumbers, plasterers, carpenters, tilers, electricians, roofer, and painters and decorators, as well as project management of these contractors if you are away or unable to do it yourself
  • Property dressing
  • Utility readings and connections – broadband, telephone, gas and electricity
  • Key-holding – if you are away or on holiday
  • Cleaning – general cleaning and specialised carpet, curtains and upholstery

  • Pest control

Also, have you considered any of these services after you have moved?

  • Property insurance
  • Secure storage facilities
  • Contractors, such as plumbers, plasterers, carpenters, tilers, electricians, roofer, and painters and decorators, as well as project management of these contractors if you are away or unable to do it yourself
  • Utility readings and connections – broadband, telephone, gas and electricity
  • Cleaning – general cleaning and specialised carpet, curtains and upholstery
  • Electrical and Gas Safe approved checks and servicing
  • Pest control

Introducing you to these professionals will save you time because we’ve already done all the hard work finding reputable local companies, thus making it much less stressful than having to find someone to tackle some or all of these aspects yourself.

So insistent are we on good standards that we make a point of asking our sellers and buyers for their feedback if they’ve used one of our recommended suppliers. If someone on our list appears to have dropped their standards, we have a quiet word in their ear. If it continues to happen, we no longer recommend them. You pay us to put you first, not them.

Get switched on and ready to go!

Our most popular service is making sure the utility meters have been read, suppliers changed and services, such as broadband and telephone, connected ready for moving day. These are often the most irritating, time-consuming issues to sort out after you have moved in.

Broadband connections in particular can take several weeks to get up and running and our clients appreciate that Campbells can take care of this and have it ready and waiting for them when they arrive so they can send all their friends and family emails of their new home!

3) We Have The Marketing Skills To Sell Your Property…Guaranteed

Our marketing team have always tried to come up with new forward-thinking, innovative ideas to help our clients achieve their dreams more quickly.

The internet has played a massive role in the sale and letting of property and we have always tried to make sure our clients’ properties are at the top of buyers’ and tenants’ lists. Clearly the more buyers and tenants see our properties, the quicker we can spring into action and the best price be achieved.

Each one of our advertised properties has its own unique URL and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) function; when we first set this up it made changes to the amount of enquiries through this one feature alone. If you are searching for a property in a particular street or location, with particular criteria, you will find it in an internet search. Clearly our sellers and landlords will benefit massively from this.

We recently made massive changes to our website to allow both buyers and sellers to navigate their way through our site much easier and what a difference it has made!

We have always invested heavily in mobile responsive technology, since nowadays, most potential buyers will be looking at your property from a mobile phone, the chances are you may even be reading this right now on a mobile! Have you read our blog about ‘Estate Agents and Mobile Phones’?  No longer do our clien
ts have to sit in front of a PC, you can communicate with us from anywhere. In a recent survey, our customers wanted to be able to communicate and read our property details on the move and in their lap, so now you can.

You now have the facility to see the location of each property on Google Maps or Google Street View. You can even send a copy of the details to a friend, if you want to.

And on top of all that, we partner with every major internet property portal site such as Rightmove, Zoopla, Prime Location and many more.

Not only this but we spend thousands a month advertising our clients properties on social media including Facebook and Twitter, you would be amazed how many people connect with us and book a viewing because they have seen properties advertised in their Facebook newsfeed. Have you seen our blog ‘8 Social Media Platforms That We Use To Sell Or Let Your Property Faster‘.

Did you know we are in Zoopla’s top 25 agents in the UK for social media presence, as a seller, this is great news for you since most of our social media marketing is done for our clients property!

4) We Always Tell The Truth

We always tell the truth (even if it’s not what you want to hear or what we would prefer to say!)

The Campbells team is trained to be entirely straightforward and truthful throughout the sales process, because only then do we stand the best chance of selling your property quickly so that you can move on to the next stage of your life. Anything else just wastes your time and creates a feeling of mistrust.

We wouldn’t be looking out for your best interests if we didn’t come clean and tell you the truth at all times. Sometimes you may not like it, but we guarantee you’ll like it even less if you found out we hadn’t told you something that was important.

 

5) No Minimum Contract Length

You’ll find Campbells’ approach to contracts a refreshing change from what you may experience elsewhere.

First, we discuss our terms of business with you in detail and then put everything we’ve discussed down on paper in clear, jargon-free English so you know what to expect and there are no unpleasant surprises.

Second, you are not obliged to stay with us for a minimum length of time. There is no minimum contract length and you are free to leave at any time if we do not perform as you would expect. You stay with us because you want to, not because you have to.

We are always happy with the service Campbells provides, we feel that we can talk to the team about anything and get an honest answer and we never feel bullied, which is very important.

6) Accurate ValuationsFREE-VALUATION.png

After you have used our FREE Instant Online Valuation Calculator‘ our team of professional, local property experts will pay you a visit and do what they do best. Pricing is one of the most critical elements in selling your property. The only things that influence whether a property will sell are the price and the competition in the area. If there are other similar properties for sale of a comparable standard of décor and yours is the highest priced of them all, then chances are your neighbours will get all the viewings and offers and you won’t.

‘The agent handling the sale of my previous house insisted on putting the house on the market at 10k over the top asking price….‘for a trial period’. We had zero viewings during those four weeks until we insisted the price was lowered to match other similar properties on the market. Once the price was lowered we were inundated with viewings and sold STC within four days.’ Graham Gilbert

7) Excellent Details

Comprehensive, accurate details and excellent ‘photography’

Once you’re happy with the presentation of your property, we’ll start to prepare your property details. Our descriptions are compelling yet always balanced with the truth, and contain keywords and phrases we know from experience are vital to increasing your visibility on the Internet and being found quickly.

We make a point of not featuring any of the following:

Photos taken with stretch lenses to make rooms and gardens look bigger.

The bare minimum of details designed to force a buyer book a viewing to find out the property is unsuitable and waste your time.

Basic descriptive errors – we know the difference between a semi-detached and an end of terrace.

To ensure accuracy, calibrated laser measures are used as standard and the data entered into professional drawing software to produce plans of varying levels of complexity, from a simple floor plan to a 3D plan with a walk through to detailed floor plans with measurements if renovations are required.

Half the battle in producing really good property details is professional photography or ‘protography’ for short. Campbells’ people are very well trained in taking good shots and will carefully evaluate the best aspects of your property, those that buyers really want to see, and photograph them in the best possible light conditions. If the weather changes drastically after we take the photos, we’ll come round and take some new ones so they look as up to date as possible.

Campbells even has the ability to take aerial photos, and compose 360 degree virtual tours inside and outside of your property to create additional impact.

If you live in an area of outstanding beauty or close to interesting landmarks or excellent local amenities, we’ll take photos of those as well. We want people to buy into a community and a lifestyle, not just your property, so we help them visualise what it would be like to live there. And with so many property details looking the same, having something different on yours will stop prospective buyers in their tracks and make them take a second look.

If you want to get your property to the top of a buyer’s list, you have to imagine what your property will look like on the computer screen. The Internet is now the primary medium people use to view property. Does yours make an impact, or pass by unnoticed?

Once your property details are complete, we’ll send a paper copy for you to check and approve. This could take a couple of days because we want to make absolutely sure we take the best photos and compile the details as accurately as possible.

8) Accompanied Viewings

All viewings with Campbells are accompanied.

If you have entrusted us with a set of keys, we never simply hand them over and let a buyer into your property on their own. It’s amazing that some agents still continue to do this knowing the security risks involved, apart from completely missing out on the most basic method of discovering the buyer’s thoughts during a viewing and addressing their immediate questions.

We arrive at your property early to ensure everything is ready for the buyers. We’ll already have had a conversation with you about whether you’re happy to let us take care of any last minute preparations for the viewers. For example, if you are at work at the time of the viewing, we can go around opening or closing curtains depending on the time of day, fluffing the sofa cushions, turning on the lights and generally familiarising ourselves with your property’s features once again. It’s even been known for us to wash up if someone wasn’t expecting a viewing and dashed off to work early that morning without doing it. However, we do have to draw a line so please don’t leave the hoover or the duster out for us!

Once the viewing is complete we lock up securely. Every viewing is followed up within 48 hours to find out what the buyer thought of your property. Whatever the feedback, positive or negative, we share it with you and talk through any issues that may need addressing in light of the buyer’s comments. Campbells make a point of finding out what the buyer’s expectations are and carefully, so when they view a property they are well prepared.

We do this with each and every buyer who views your property until we have secured you an offer.

If you want to know more about how we conduct our viewings then please ask.

9) Coaching For Sellers

Selling a house is a partnership.

While we can do everything to market your property, its saleability and, ultimately, its value, are down to you.

The truth is that when selling your property, it should always be clean, tidy and presentable and we do whatever we can to help you achieve this.

If there are odd jobs that need attending to, it’s important to get them done so they are not used by the buyer as a means to negotiate a lower price. If you are too busy, we have a very capable maintenance team who can sort it out for you.

Don’t forget to check out what other services we offer on our main menu, for example, did you know we have a ‘Want To Sell Quickly
Scheme whereby we have investors that will buy and property in any condition (terms of conditions apply). Or maybe you need mortgage advice or a solicitor? – We can help with that too.
