As more potential buyers enter the housing market, getting the best price and service is key
An upturn in buyers’ activity means that the Autumn could be a good time to sell your house. Recent research from Rightmove shows there is increasing activity in the property market.
Selling your property quickly for the maximum possible price is clearly the most important thing when you sell. The key to getting that is using a local agent with detailed knowledge of the area where you are selling, and of those buyers who could be in the market.
One other way of getting a great price is making sure your property has good visibility online. That’s why when you sell your house through ludlowthompson, we ensure its presence on all the leading online platforms. This helps to ensure that as many people as possible get 24/7 visibility of properties for sale, allowing for the topmost exposure, driving viewing numbers and delivering competitive sales negotiations, helping to achieve maximum prices in the current market.
ludlowthompson combines our extensive online presence with a genuine knowledge and expertise of the local property market – this is what we pride ourselves on and is something our modern, aspirational and open brand is renowned for.
Our ‘My LT.Account’ service adds to our online offering – the platform shows real time updates on property viewings as well as viewer reviews and feedback.
Stephen Ludlow, Chairman at ludlowthompson, comments: “Our priority has always been clear - to achieve the best possible price for sellers through a service that delivers real value by blending face –to –face accessibility, traditional marketing techniques with a digital offering, and dedicated sales progression”
"Motivated sellers are in a good position to move up the property ladder at the moment but must ensure that they are getting as many potential buyers coming through the door as possible to get a maximum price. Furthermore, it's worth remembering that you don't pay capital gains tax on the sale of your principle home provided that you have one home, and you've lived in it as your main home for as long as you've owned it.”
Those interested in purchasing a property have a huge variety of finance choices as there are now more than 5,000 different products on offer. 82% of these are fixed rate loans, typically for 2/5 years, which despite this period of transition with the EU is a reflection of the interest rate stability we are going through.
"With so many products on offer, borrowers should sensibly seek help from an expert to decided which is best for them," comments Stephen Ludlow, Chairman of ludlowthompson.

“I was fortunate to have Kirsty, the manager to help me selling my property. She is very professional, and no support is ever too much trouble for her. Not only I managed to sell my property in a short space of time, but she has also patiently helped me with paper work from various process. Not to forget to mention Georgina, who is also very professional with a helping hand on my paper works and various advice. I like to say thank you to both for such a wonderful experience.”

“Kirsty at the Oval office was fantastic! This was my first sale and I was super nervous as I’ve never sold a house before. The prospect of all the jargon involved with the sale of a house filled me with dread, but Kirsty took her time explaining all the necessary details and was very knowledgeable and professional. I found being able to contact my agent at any time made the process so much more stress free than I imagined. Highly recommend.”
