Selling a property? It all starts with a free valuation...
... and where better to start than with the estate agent voted 2016 & 2017 Best Estate Agent in Surrey & Sussex?
Selling a Property with Homes Partnership
The Crawley property market is one of the fastest moving and most competitive in the UK. With demand often outstripping supply, marketing property for sale in Crawley may seem like an easy trade, however it is quite the opposite. The ethos and motivation of each estate agent along the high street, including online agents, is dramatically different and that is not always a good thing! Our drive is purely focused towards delivering the best possible customer service; something that is backed up by us winning leading industry awards year after year. Selling a property is what we do and we do it well!
It is our belief therefore, that being good at what we do isn’t good enough; our service has to be better than that of our competitors and from what we hear from our clients, it is. We understand that today’s buyer is tomorrow’s seller and because we want you as a client for life, it is part of our culture to go the extra mile for both buyers and sellers. This may mean working way beyond normal office hours, or simply booking appointments when it suits you – whenever that happens to be. We work like this for two reasons: Firstly, because being helpful and understanding is second nature to us. Secondly, because by bending over backwards to help, we get better results for our clients.
Our high street office is located in Crawley and every single one of our staff has grown up and lives within our local area. This local DNA helps us understand the areas we cover inside-out enabling us to always be on hand to help and most importantly use our knowledge for matching the right properties to the right buyers. According to statistics from Rightmove.co.uk, just 4% of direct enquires relating to a specific property result in a sale on that property. We understand customers needs and match them to property they may have already discounted or missed completely, this is what estate agency is really about and something online agents can't do as they have no database of buyers.
Our results speak for themselves; between 2013 and 2017 our average sale price was 99% of asking price, we are consistently selling more property than our competitors in the areas we operate; over three quarters of our properties that come to market get sold (compared to some other agents who fail to sell half of their listings) and 80% of homeowners that come to market having had a valuation by Homes Partnership use Homes Partnership.
We believe in providing a personal, caring service to our clients at all times and fully understand that under some circumstances moving home can be very emotional; an understanding of your needs & feelings is essential. Between us we have over 100 years experience to offer the professionalism, care and attention that you need.
We utilise the best available sources to market your property to maximum effect. This includes superior digital advertising, regular mail-shots and call-outs to suitable applicants on the mailing list and a colour display in our High Street office. Our properties are advertised on several property portals including www.rightmove.co.uk, www.zoopla.co.uk & www.onthemarket.com. Our prominent 'For Sale' boards are also an excellent marketing tool; a 24/7 advert! With superb property particulars including great free professionally edited photography, free EPC and floorplans, accompanied viewings and a dedicated Client Liaison Manager to see your transaction through to completion; we take care of you and your property from the very first marketing day through to completion and the handover of keys.
Throughout marketing our sales team keep our clients updated on progress with feedback following viewings and regular suggestions on how to improve your chances of securing an early sale, so if you have a property for sale locally then give us a call or pop in for a friendly chat and a coffee. We offer free valuations with no obligation to proceed and to make it even easier you can simply fill in the free valuation request form at the bottom of this page!

An average sale via Homes Partnership takes 10 weeks from sale agreed to exchange of contracts. This is three weeks less than the national average of 13 weeks in the UK. Get moving quicker with HP!

Selling a Property: From Offer Agreed to Completion
When your sale is agreed our dedicated Client Liaison Manager Sarah Evans takes over, liaising with all parties throughout the chain, solicitors, mortgage brokers and surveyors to ensure everyone is kept informed and timely progress is made. Sarah is incredibly knowledgeable about the conveyancing process so she understands realistic timescales. She picks up any early warning signals of potential problems and goes out of her way to eradicate any issues that do arise.
The average sale takes 12 weeks to go through and in that time our clients come to rely on Sarah to keep them updated, she builds a friendly yet professional relationship with them and she receives more chocolates and flowers than anyone else in the office (lucky for us she does share)! With her excellent customer service Sarah is certainly keeping the confectionery businesses in Crawley busy! Selling a property is more than a sale to Sarah, it's her helping people move on in their lives for the better.
Having Sarah here helps reduce our transaction time when selling a property to below the national average as well as decreasing our average of transactions that abort after the sale is agreed. Aborted sales are a part of our industry and research shows that up to one in every four agreed sales do not make the complete distance.
We are proud to say our transactions are far more likely to go the distance, and in every way this is down to our wonderful team. Extra care and attention is always taken by our experts when agreeing the sale, with the help of our mortgage team, to ensure there are no avoidable hiccups later down the line when selling a property.
Now you've read what we are about, we'd love you to get in touch and discuss those first steps! Selling a property all starts with a free valuation...
