When Size Does Count!
“When you want to sell the most valuable and emotional possession you own, you want the sale to be handled by professionals that you both trust and rely on. Every business has a “capacity” before it’s standards are compromised. Every business whether it sells children’s clothes, sandwiches or motor cars will reach a point where the standards to which they originally aspired, (and hopefully attained!) will be compromised. Unless the stock they have is sold or they employ more staff to facilitate the sale and management of it the employee’s cannot manage the portfolio of property they have promised to sell. At Elizabeth Davenport our sales statistics (please contact the office for the finer details!) show that 84% of our stock sells within 7 weeks with just over 50% sold within 4. This means our “stock” of property is a manageable one. It means we do not have property sitting redundant on the “shelf”. It means that we are always aware of what property we have for sale, at what price it is marketed and we have the knowledge of which potential buyers we have waiting. The ability to sell and market the property successfully is only possible if you have the correct volume of staff and facilities to do so. Is an agent with 200 properties for sale and 4 full time office staff more efficient than one with 30 for sale and 3 full time staff? This is where Size Does Count! Possibly not though in the way you might of thought it did!” By Mark Walmsley.
