In the current economic climate, the housing market has seen some volatile activity within house sale movement.
But Chris Dewhurst, of Dewhurst Homes, explains that in his seven years in the estate agent business and 25 years in property development, he has never been so busy.
So what is his key to success?
“Working hard to be able to offer so much more than anybody else does. It is at times like this that we all have to put the extra effort in more than anyone else, to be successful,” he says.
“Making us stand out from the rest with our work ethic, fully experienced and dedicated sales and lettings staff and our consistent, proactive approach to finding and matching applicants to our properties.
“We are open seven days a week with late-night openings, but we are prepared to go beyond this.
“We pride ourselves in accommodating our clients’ wishes for times to suit them in their busy work and family lives, so no opportunities are missed.”
There is an increased demand for letting properties as household circumstances change and many younger people are struggling to buy property.
Chris Dewhurst advises: “If the property is of good quality and at the right price, the turnaround for newly available letting property is very quick indeed – in many cases within days.
“Rental prices are in line with this demand and have seen a slight increase.
“We offer an extremely competitive package to our landlords, with no inventory charges or hidden extras. Application fees are also competitive for our new tenants.”
Dewhurst Home’s full management package for lettings offers its own heating engineers who are on call 24/7 with no call out charge – even on Christmas Day.
There is a full team of electricians, joiners, maintenance staff and plumbers with whom Dewhurst Homes works very closely, to look after landlords’ properties if they so wish.
Business is doing extremely well and along with the launch of the brand new website and opening of a third branch in Fulwood, Dewhurst Homes is hoping to expand the branch in Longridge, to accommodate the increase in business and staff.
The recently installed Vebra software system now interlinks all three branches databases to match a wider field of applicants to properties and is proving most beneficial.
Dewhurst Homes has ideal properties for sale for potential landlords, supported by an excellent and competitive package to continue the lettings service.
“Call us for advice and our dedicated and knowledgeable staff with be only too willing to go that extra mile to help provide the key to success for all”, says Chris Dewhurst.
