July 2018 marked two landmarks in Hardings history, as there is now a prominent Salisbury branch to compliment the original Amesbury Office and a smart new re-brand for the first time since 2013. Hardings is a successful Estate Agency practice of highly respected Sales and Letting professionals, with a wealth of experience that stretches back over 25 years.
Often these synopses are full of words and phrases such as; "traditional service", "latest technology", "different", "work harder for you" etc.., all of which are what anyone expects from their agent, although mostly what owners have ever been interested in is: 1. How much will my property sell for, or let out at? 2. How long will it take to sell or let? and 3. How much will it cost?
With the advent of the Internet, all most Agents seem to do is put Properties on portals such as ‘Rightmove’ or ‘Zoopla’, hope to get an offer, hope it gets accepted and hope it goes through. If it doesn’t sell, have ready reasons ready why the price should come down. If all you care is whether your Property Sells or Lets - then job done, however we set the bar higher when working for our clients.
The Directors of Hardings can tap into experience that dates back to 1992 – as tough a market as there has been in a generation – when there was no internet or mobile phones and pictures were taken onto film that was sent away to be developed. Those were the days that you actually had to think about the best way to market Properties. Our Sales and Lettings department are run by teams that include an unrivalled successful track record of Estate Agency in Salisbury, as well as the most successful Estate Agency group in London, along with the many prestigious International Estate Agency group in the UK and the largest Estate Agency group in Europe.
Our promise is to use all the latest tools, introduce some impressive innovations and find the best ways to market Properties. We think carefully about every aspect of how to showcase your Property to achieve the best result for you; from the presentation, to the wording, to how different types of purchasers or Tenants will see it, to the best way to conduct a viewing. Offers are expertly negotiated for your benefit – not just securing a quick agreement – and the process is carefully monitored until completion.
If we are not successful with our first strategy, all the team work together to create other approaches – lowering the price is the very last option. While we work to achieve an acceptable offer, you will be kept informed of all viewings and receive a call every week to give a roundup of the previous week, internet traffic report and plan for the following week. Real live communication, not just a computer-generated report or a portal to log into.
Communication is still key to ensuring the process is as stress free as possible. Usually the first reason most people change Estate Agents is not because they have failed to Sell or Let, it is due to poor communication, usually with call avoidance and breaking promises. At every stage we live by the mantra: "You should always know what is happening, without having to call". It is why we have been fortunate to receive so many good reviews over the years.
