What’s happened to Malcolm’s in Godmanchester?

Sadly another business in Godmanchester has closed.

Malcoms Estate Agents in Godmanchester took over from Bennett Sanders who in turn took over from Campbells have now closed leaving Gatehouse Estates as the only Estate & Letting agent in Godmanchester again.

Gatehouse Estates opened in 1989 and were the only Estate Agent for years before Campbells opened.

Malcolms remain open in Huntingdon but have closed in Papworth & Godmanchester.

This news broke just as Gatehouse Estates announces their expansion into St. Neots.

Independent Estate Agents in Huntingdon

Independent Estate Agents, Gatehouse Estates, were established in Kimbolton in 1988 and were the first Estate Agency in the village. In 1989 we became the first Estate Agency to open in Godmanchester.

We offer sales & lettings from our base in Godmanchester. As an independent estate agent we are able to source EPC’s, Conveyancing, Cleaning, Maintenance, Decorating and all other property related service at the most reasonable cost, often from local independent firms.

Independent Estate Agents and Property Management Company covering PE28, PE29, PE19, SG19, CB23. Based in Godmanchester we can cover a wide radius from St. Ives to St. Neots and from Kimbolton up to Peterborough.

Why is choosing an independent important?

If we don’t sell houses we don’t get paid. We are not owned by a large bank, building society or insurance company. This is our business so you’ll probably deal with a partner in the firm from start to finish.

Estate Agent’s photo mistakes

Why would you advertise a property with this photo?








When with a little effort you could take this…………..








I’m guessing this is why the Estate Agent using the first photo had very few enquiries and no viewings!

Why do Estate Agents go to such lengths to measure, floorplan and photograph your home then write just three or four lines about it online?

It is true that online marketing has more than taken over and the days of having hoards of buyer registering with you has long gone. All good news from a cost point of view because you need less staff and can spend far less on traditional sales details.

Estate Agents details vary wildly from a cheap print out from their website to a huge and very expensive glossy brochure.

The difference these days, and the main reason people have taken so quickly to using the internet is that they don’t like talking to Estate Agents! Don’t get me wrong, I am very approachable and don’t hard sell Conveyancing or Mortgage Advice but have you been into some Countrywide office?

Estate Agents should provide all the information they have, they should include online the whole brochure for clients to download. I don’t want to be posting the details out when the prospective buyer could have them instantly and at no cost to me.

Some of you reading this will think I’m just being tight but my vendors pay, not me!
