So you’ve just accepted an offer on your house, congratulations! Job done, right? Well not for us. It’s at this point, where we at Thomas Morris begin dedicating our time to securing the sale and ensuring the whole process goes as smoothly as possible. According to a recent survey conducted by Relocation Agent Network, of which we are a member, 60% of responding agents (including us!) have at least one employee dedicated to sales progression.

Adding Value Behind the Scenes

Many people think that an estate agent’s role stops once a buyer has been found, but in reality, for the best quality agents, this is where the work really begins. At Thomas Morris we commit ourselves to making sure the most important part of the sale process goes as smoothly as possible, by working closely with everyone involved in the chain, regularly communicating with all parties to keep you up to date with where things are. In fact, according to the Relocation Agent Network survey, three quarters of responding agents spend more than 30% of their time dedicated to a property, during the period it moves from offer to exchange.

Additionally, nearly 8 out of 10 respondents confirmed the time they spend on this process has increased over the last 12 months.

Of course, not every property sale goes as smoothly as hoped, so we dedicate a lot of our time to solving issues throughout the chain, with the aim of reaching the exchange of contracts stage as swiftly as possible.
