Simon Caplin, Senior Auctioneer with Parsons Son & Basley says, ‘What I really do love about my job is the fact that last Friday morning I was scratching my head wondering why a particular property in our next auction was creating such little interest, its chances of selling were reducing by the day when my telephone rang and a gentleman introduced himself and said he was very interested in the property. He had viewed it a couple of weeks earlier, had returned from holiday and wished to make an offer and in the event that his offer was accepted, he would exchange contracts that afternoon as he had already downloaded and read the legal pack! After a couple of hours of negotiating the offer, a price was duly agreed that afternoon, the buyer attended my office, paid his 10% deposit and exchanged contracts there and then. No survey, no mortgage, no chain, just a cash buyer who was as good as his word.
Literally within a few hours our very happy client had gone from having very little interest in his property and the prospect of it not selling to having a signed contract exchanged with completion just 28 days later.
So you see, when we advise clients we are able to sell their property immediately, we are as good as our word!’
