Our offices are now open and we are conducting appointments in strict accordance with Government guidance.
Contact us today for a free, no obligation, property valuation from your leading, local agent.
Whether you’re thinking of selling, require a valuation for insurance or probate, or are just looking at houses for sale and are curious about what your property’s worth, WellingtonWise offer free, no obligation valuations on all types of property. An experienced property expert will visit your home and give you an honest and realistic valuation. They will also be able to offer you advice on improvements to help maximise your sale price, as well as information on the complete sales process and all the ways we can help to make it as pain free as possible.
We strive to get the maximum exposure possible when we market your home. As well as featuring your property on our own website, we also utilise the top three national property portals. Whilst some agents have switched to lower cost sites, at WellingtonWise we subscribe to the UKs best-performing; Rightmove, Zoopla and Primelocation. Maximum exposure means more viewings and ultimately the best possible price for your most valuable asset.
Whilst a good percentage of viewings are now booked on the internet, the printed media is still a widely used property search tool, and is a great way to maximise exposure when selling your house. WellingtonWise use the local free papers with the highest distribution to local homes in all of the areas where we sell property. We still achieve viewings from the property press every week and also find that potential buyers using multiple channels to look for a new home may look again at a property they dismissed online when presented with the details in a different environment.
We don’t just put your property online and in the newspaper and wait for the buyers to come to us. We have a database of registered buyers looking for homes in all of the areas we serve. We stay in touch with our buyers on a very regular basis, ensuring our lists are accurate and our buyer’s requirements are constantly updated. As soon as we have your property on market we’ll email our database and call anyone looking for a property like yours to ensure we get our best buyers through your door. We’re here to proactively sell your property quickly and at the very best price.
The legal process of buying or selling a home in the UK can be a lengthy one. A slow-moving sale process can add additional stress and in some cases be a deciding factor in one of the parties withdrawing from the sale. ‘Quick Move’ costs nothing and is focused on the preparation of documents that will be required at some point in the sales process. By preparing the documents ahead of time, your conveyancer is able to make a start as soon as a buyer is found, potentially cutting weeks of the overall timescales.
Big or small, 1 bedroom or 10, we’ll produce a detailed, high quality floor plan of every property. Once you’ve grabbed attention with your stunning photos, a floorplan is the next key draw for a potential buyer, and as such is included everywhere and anywhere we advertise your property online.
We produce A4 and A3 property brochures of the very highest quality in-house at WellingtonWise, so we waste no time and we never run out. This also means your brochure will be available in our office on the same day we are instructed to market your home and a PDF brochure is instantly placed on all of our online marketing channels for potential buyers to download.
Quality photos that show your home at its best could be the difference between getting buyers through the door and having them skip past your property online. First impressions count, and online those impressions are created by your Estate Agent’s photography. WellingtonWise employ a professional photographer for all our photos. From a 1 bedroom flat to a 6 bedroom mansion we know that every property will benefit from professional photos. Read more about professional photography here
Our Hitchin, Royston and St Ives offices are all located in the heart of the towns’ centres and all have high visibility windows using the very latest back light displays. You can be sure that if the right buyer walks past our office, your property will catch their eye and entice them inside to find out more.
Social media is the fastest-growing property marketing channel and is often underutilised by local Estate Agents. WellingtonWise have both a Facebook page and a Twitter account where we regularly promote our new properties and achieve great sales results. We encourage all vendors to share their properties on their own social media accounts to help us create even greater exposure. Click on the icons to the right of the page to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.
Virtual Reality viewings transports potential buyers, allowing them to move around the property, gaining more insight into how the property is laid out and flows. With the buyer able to see rooms from different angles; they also gain a better understanding of the scale of the property.
Conducting viewings are all part of the service at WellingtonWise. We are on hand 7 days a week to ensure we can accommodate the time and day that best suit your potential buyers. In our experience a viewer will spend longer in your home with an Estate Agent and give more genuine (and often more helpful) feedback, so let us remove the stress and work our magic while you pop out for a coffee. Of course if you prefer to conduct viewings yourself we are also happy to organise them to suit you and to offer as much or as little help and advice as you require.
We follow up every viewing within 24 hours. We like to give our viewers some time to reflect and gather their thoughts and any questions they may have. So, if we don’t get feedback (or an offer) at the viewing, we’ll call the viewers the following day. Whatever feedback we receive, we’ll be honest with you and if there’s anything we can do to help, we will.
At WellingtonWise we are working for you - the vendor - and it is our job to achieve you the very best price for your property using all of our experience and our expert negotiation skills. Rest assured, if we can squeeze another pound for your home, we will.
If your sale doesn't proceed to exchange and completion it's of no use to you or to us, so we have every offer as comprehensively substantiated as possible. We have all offers checked for affordability with our mortgage partners. We ask for proof of funds for deposits and from cash buyers and we will liaise with other agents to get a complete view of your buyer's chain. We will then give you the facts and our professional recommendation so you can make an informed decision about any offer on the table.
The job isn’t finished just because we’ve negotiated you the best price for your home. At WellingtonWise, every client will be supported throughout the sale process by an in branch sales progressor. Our experienced progression team is there to guide your sale through to a swift and successful conclusion, with as little stress along the way. We highly recommend taking advantage of our ‘Quick Move’ guidance allowing you to cut weeks off the sales process, giving you more time to enjoy your new home.
We are available 7 days a week to conduct valuations, viewings or to pick up the phone and answer your queries. Our opening hours are:
Monday to Friday 8:30am – 6pm
Saturday 9am – 5pm
Sunday 10am – 2pm
In addition we are happy to arrange appointments outside of these times, and, if you're a vendor, we’ll ensure you have out of hours contact information. We’re always on hand!
Communication is so important when selling a house, and yet it tends to be one of the biggest criticisms of Estate Agents. At WellingtonWise we strive to be different. Communication is at the heart of everything we do. We’ll get in touch after every viewing, and if you don’t have viewings we’ll still get in touch to discuss how we can do more. We believe in working in partnership with our vendors, with regular marketing and service reviews. We do what we say we will do and if we say we’ll call, we’ll call!
Are you trying to get a roof over your head and don't know where to start? Then mortgage and conveyancing advice is one of the first things you'll need. WellingtonWise are here to help whether you're a first time buyer or looking for that next move and need to check your mortgage capabilities and moving costs. All of our offices have local legal partners and conveyancing solicitors that we work with, all of whom we have used and worked with to ensure that our high level of service is reflected. See our Mortgages & Legal page for more information on our partners.
It is now a legal requirement that any property offered for sale has an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate), with the exception of listed properties. WellingtonWise are happy to organise an EPC for you, to avoid any delay in marketing your property. Once complete, your EPC will be valid for 10 years.
At WellingtonWise all of our marketing is produced and controlled in house, so we could have your property details live on our website, on key national property portals and in our office in just a few hours. Of course if that’s too quick you can give us a schedule to work to, safe in the knowledge that all of our marketing information and material is produced to the highest quality and with great attention to detail, whatever your timescale.
