Why is Godmanchester so popular?

There are many reasons why people choose to live where they do.

I met one couple who have lived in Godmanchester for 40 years because whilst driving through one day, he needed a toilet stop and happened to park next to a nice house that was for sale, three months later they had moved in.

Here though in no particular order are other reasons why Godmanchester is popular with buyers.

  • Two very good primary schools
  • Catchment area of Hinchingbrooke School
  • We are on the bus route for Kimbolton School
  • We have a wide variety of shops & businesses
  • We have easy access to the A1, A14 & A428
  • We are within walking distance of Huntingdon Train Station
  • There are some great pubs & restaurants in Godmanchester
  • We have an eclectic mix of properties
  • The Causeway, recreation ground & town centre are all very pretty
  • There are some great walks from Godmanchester including The Ouse Valley Way
  • There is a visible sense of community spirit in Godmanchester
  • There is an active Church, Quaker Centre and Baptist church
  • We have free and ample parking around Godmanchester

 

 

How to choose an Estate Agent

If you have a family home or investment property and are looking to sell it then choosing an Estate Agent is the most important part of the process.

It sounds simple, get a few Estate Agents to give you free valuations and choose one. Sadly it’s not that straight forward.

There are lots of things to take into account even before you pick up the phone.

  • Which Estate Agents do you choose to do the valuations, most areas have 10+
  • Are you in favour of supporting local business?
  • Have you dealt with a company or companies before?

The reason I raise these questions is that, in my opinion, you should have three valuations, use local independent firms and never choose a company that has failed to impress you before.

Is there an Estate Agent who has a high number of SOLD signs, not lots of FOR SALE’s?
Is there a very local firm that will appreciate your business?
Smaller, owner run business tend to give a much higher level of personal service.
Has a friend or family member recommended someone at a local Estate Agency?

I keep mentioning ‘local’ and there is a reason for that.
I have heard of Estate Agents not wanting to do viewings on properties because it’s going to take them 15 minutes to get there, half an hour to do the viewing and 15 minutes to get back. A whole hour of their day gone!

There is also the the fact that the further away you are from your area the less you know about school catchment areas, local clubs & associations, shop opening hours, train times etc.

When you call each agent to book your valuation, how is your call handled? Are you grilled for info, do you feel like your filling in a telephone questionnaire or is it as simple as booking an appointment?

Always bear in mind that the company will send their best salesman to the valuation and in many cases that may be the last time you see or hear from them. Ask how their business works, who does the viewings and as importantly who will negotiate with the buyer on your behalf.

First impressions count, you will have a first impression of your Estate Agent & so will your buyers.

Choose the Estate Agent that is sensible on the price of your property.

Choose the Estate Agent that offers a realistic fee for the service and doesn’t try to tie you into a sole agency.

Choose the Estate Agent that is going to appreciate your business.

Choose the Estate Agent that you think you can work with best.

Choose the Estate Agent that you are confident will negotiate on your behalf, otherwise you will be paying thousands in fees and loosing thousands on the value of your home.

 

Hope this helps…
