This was a lovely three bedroom semi-detached home situated on a quiet residential street in the heart of Chesterton. The owners were permanently relocating away from Cambridge, had already purchased their onward home, and had mostly been living away for a number of months. With a young family, work commitments, plus considerable distance between their homes, they no longer had the time to travel to Cambridge but knew they had to handle the sale of their property.
After finding us on social media, the owners contacted us with the provision to selling their home but also needed additional help such as sourcing and arranging services such as deep cleaning and access; sourcing a boiler service company (for their very unique solar gas boiler unit) as well as help with the ongoing need for occasional access to their property. They seemed very relieved we could offer a quality estate agency service as well as provide additional flexible help.
Whilst these services are not a requirement for selling a home, many clients are keen to carry them out nonetheless, which is completely understandable.
Subsequently we arranged to visit them at their home to discuss the sales and marketing strategy for their home here in Cambridge. The owners wanted a relatively quick sale, as well as the best price for their home and here we agreed on a strong sales and marketing strategy. We arranged for the professional photos to take place, and instantly began online marketing, followed by an open house. Here there were thirty-five viewings and by the first day we had three immediate offers. We ultimately achieved eleven qualified offers from prospective buyers within the first week, and all offers received were over the asking price and ultimately achieved 16% over the asking price.
