Reasons to use a high street agent

Here at Rush, Witt & Wilson we believe picking an Estate Agent should be based on many factors, not just the commission rate! You will be opening your home to your agent so by using a local and established agent, such as Rush, Witt and Wilson, you will have the opportunity to speak directly to your agent and build a relationship which will help you in the buying and selling process.

We have seven offices across East Sussex and Kent, so if you want to move to the South Coast of England we can help. Our agents live where they work, and they can offer genuine advice and information on the areas.

We also are part of the Relocation Agent Network.

They have chosen us as their area advisors based on our customer service and a variety of other criteria. Through our Network membership, we are able to offer sellers an additional group of buyers unavailable to other agents in the areas.

Richard Tucker, Managing Director of Relocation Agent Network, says:
“If you’re considering selling your property, it’s important to think carefully about your expectations of the agent handling your sale. After all, you are going to be opening up your home to them and prospective buyers. I strongly recommend that sellers pay close attention to the quality of the agent’s service, advice and trust, as well as commission rate.

“With more than 600 offices across England, Scotland and Wales, the Cartus Relocation Agent Network brings together the know-how agents handpicked for their experience and performance can bring. The world’s leading provider of relocation services, Cartus, has recognised the value of the Relocation Agent Network. Why not talk to your local agent to discuss your requirements?”

Using this service will not cost you anything, and you will benefit from a face-to-face consultation with a trusted expert who can guide you through the whole planning process.

Things to consider when choosing an agent:

• Knowledge in how best to price your property
• Expected time to find a buyer
• Commission structure
• Where the property will be promoted
• Regularity of viewings and whether viewings will be accompanied
• For Sale board – even in the digital age, this remains a key marketing element
• Marketing updates from your agent to you – make sure you agree the most convenient time and format of these updates
