Why choose a franchised agent in your local area?

2nd May 2019 posted in Sellers

If you have decided that you want to choose a local agent to sell your home, you have made a good choice. The importance of local knowledge and market understanding is crucial when it comes to selling your home. However, there is more than one type of local agent to call on, and we believe that choosing a franchised agent provides you with the best support and service.

While many people are keen to hire a local agent to promote their property and connect with likely buyers, some vendors have concerns about choosing an independent agent. An independent agent may not have a lot of time to devote to you if they are busy or in high demand. Many independent agents pride themselves on offering a one-to-one service, but with so much work to be undertaken for property deals, an agent’s time can become limited very quickly.

Get help from a dependable agent

Choosing a franchised agent ensures you receive support and guidance from a local expert, but within a company which has more support for their agents. When you select a franchised agent in your local area, you aren’t just enlisting their services; you benefit from the support network that is in place around and behind them. At Hunters, we have more than 200 branches across the country, which means that there is a vibrant support network in place.

Also, being well connected across the country means we can connect you with buyers from across the nation. A local agent may be well-known in the local area, but not every buyer is looking to buy in your area hails from this area. It may be that people are looking to purchase property due to a work move, a relocation due to family or health reasons, moving to study or for any number of reasons.

Reach as many buyers as you can when selling your house

For these buyers, an estate agent with a national reputation will be more appealing than a local agent who has only reached people in the local vicinity. If you are looking to sell your home, it makes sense to reach out to as many buyers as possible, which is why you should call on a franchised local agent.

Vendors should consider the benefit if having a broader reach in promoting your property. As an organisation that as access to buyers and tenants across the country, we can reach more people, and this will hopefully help you achieve a better sales price for your house. This outcome is one that all buyers will be happy with, so it makes sense to choose an agent with a broader reach.
