Preston Baker: 2017 in review

2017 has been a fantastic year for Preston Baker, and as we look into 2018 and what’s going to happen with the market and what that means for you, I just want to take a moment to reflect on some big decisions we’ve made as to how we’re going to market our properties in the year ahead.

To begin with, I want to share massive congratulations to Alex Rex and all of the Oakwood team who won the BEST Estate Agent Guide, number one estate agency in the whole of the UK. This award was judged by RightMove and Property Academy UK, who assessed 26,000 estate agency branches across the UK.

Preston Baker was lucky enough to have the number one office in the UK for sales and lettings, the 4th, 6th and 11th best office for sales. That consistency, for those businesses in particular, is telling in terms of the methods we use to bring properties to the market because those branches are the ones that us Property Launch the most.

What is Property Launch?

Property Launch is our trademarked method of bringing properties to market and we’ve analysed 2,000 sales - half with, half without - and found that those using Property Launch sold for 3.5% more and 47 days quicker. 

So that would be a fabulous Christmas present or a great way to repay the credit card after Christmas - more than £6,500 more if you sell with Property Launch!

We’ve actually decided that this is the only way we’re going to bring properties to the market in the New Year and throughout 2018. We’re not going to offer traditional marketing because, frankly, given the knowledge we have we think it would be unethical to continue to bring properties to the market with a method we know is inferior and doesn’t work.

Get moving in 2018 with a little help from Preston Baker 

This is a unique method by Preston Baker and we’d love to help you with it in 2018. So if you are thinking about moving, get in touch with your local office and have a free discussion to talk about how to get your Yorkshire property sold quicker and for more money.
