As we head towards a decade in business, it’s breath-taking to consider what we have achieved over the last nine years.
Embleys was founded on one premise: to provide outstanding customer service that would take the stress out of moving home and change people’s perceptions of estate agency for good – and I’m glad to say the statistics prove we’re successfully doing exactly that.
I’m grateful to all those who have trusted us to help them buy, sell or rent a property and to my incredible team who remain 100% committed to placing clients at the heart of everything we do.
The market has remained pretty steady with solid growth and a high volume of instructions and sales. Trends data from Zoopla shows that across the coastal areas of NE25, NE26, NE27 and NE29, the average property price has increased by 21.1% over the past five years.
Over the last twelve months we have achieved on average 99% of the asking price with 52.2% of the properties we sold achieving 100% or more of the asking price and on average it only took five weeks for a property to go under offer. We are also proud to disclose Rightmove’s report results which confirm a staggering 88% of our instructions achieved a sale agreed in 2018.
As for our performance in 2018, it’s a pleasure to say we continue to deliver. Don’t just take our word for it – our testimonials page say it all on our behalf.
A staggering 27% of people registering for valuations came from referrals. That is to say, over a quarter of our new business enquiries came from people who recommended us to friends, family and colleagues. If you passed our name on, a huge thank you for recognising how hard we work to provide accurate valuations and to keep our customers updated every step of the way.
Thanks also for making our rentals and property management service such a huge success; this portfolio has continued to grow beyond even our own initial hopes and expectations.
We look forward to working just as hard for you in 2019 and wish you all the best
Julie Nelson, Managing Director
