Property History

Not everybody moves because they want to.  For some it down to circumstance as was the story of our client from Windermere Road.  Our job is to get the best price.  Everybody wants the best price.  Sometimes thought it’s really needed to help people move on with their life.  Hence when we value properties we choose not to be swayed by the price they paid but ultimately, by what they have done to the home and how it compares in today’s market.

Interestingly this lady had 3 valuations. The price variation between the estate agents was over £20,000 difference, a considerable amount of money to anybody!

What we did

The first thing did was listen.  Everybody has a moving story,  a reason as to why we are there.  Next we had to justify our valuation.  We were considerably higher than what she had paid for the property however our client had done considerable work to it since purchase, not all of which was obvious to the naked eye!

Upon instruction, we prepared a great set of details with some fantastic photos highlighting the key selling features.  The weather may have been warm, but we still insisted the wood burning stove was lit.  We had the stable door open for the kitchen shot and captured the greenery that surrounded the home.

The next job was to contact the registered buyers we knew would be interested. We still of course launched it online, just to make sure we got the best price for our client.

The result

Viewings were quickly booked.  Multiple offers were made.  Best and final offers were made.  We agreed the sale £2000 above the asking price, such was the demand for this home.  Even better, we were able to help our client find a fabulous new house, one which she was really happy with, and one which she could call home!

Wilston Close, Lancaster.  Sold by JDG.  This client had tried to sell with two other agents

Property History

The client was changing agents having tried not one, but two low cost fixed fee local agents. She was struggling to get interest and had only 3 viewings over a 300 day period. Like many other people who choose this route she had been tied to a lengthy contract which luckily was about to expire. She came to us asking for help and was interested to know what we could do different.

Our Solution

To the relief of the owners we chose not to reduce the asking price but focus on the property marketing and what she could also do to make the home look more attractive to buyers. This included better photos and simple home staging. We talked about how to advertise the property and where. We considered who their likely buyer would be and created a bespoke plan to attract this type of person


The result

We generated 5 viewings in a 4 week period. After a 2nd viewing, the eventual buyer offered the full asking price allowing our client just last week to move onto pastures new and live close to the their family and grandchildren. Our client was most happy. Their last agent had advised that they reduce their asking price. Had they done this they would have been thousands out of pocket.  Luckily they called us!


We wish Mr and Mrs Tomlinson all the best in the future and hope they enjoy the benefits of having their family closer.  Can we help you move with a bespoke moving plan?  If so please call me on 01524 843322.  At JDG we are here to help you.

Case Studies. A Lancaster Client Success Story

Welcome to the second of our new case studies, a series of articles where we look at the real reasons people move and how they achieve their moving goals.

Everybody has a reason for moving or having to sell a property.   Some are happy stories.  Some can be sad.  For some people it’s off to pastures new.  This could be due to a new relationship,  it might be a job change.

Some clients have a time frame they need to work with.  Other’s will tell us they are no rush.  Every client is different as we discovered  with the sale of this Halton property!
