Selling or buying a property in Pinchbeck? Here’s what you need to know!
Did you know that Pinchbeck is a form of brass, an alloy of copper and zinc, mixed in proportions so that it closely resembles gold in appearance? If you didn’t, you might also be interested to know that the first ever barcode to be scanned in the UK was scanned in Pinchbeck at the Key Market store (where Morrison’s is now situated) in October 1979. If you were aware of those snippets of Pinchbeck trivia, you’d probably be considered something of a local expert and at R. Longstaff & Co. we pride ourselves on our outstanding local expertise.
Our knowledge of Pinchbeck has helped us to sell several properties in the village recently. In fact, R.Longstaff & Co. currently holds 25%* of the available housing stock in Pinchbeck, and we have agreed 27.7%* of the sales in the village (which are now heading towards completion) coming out ahead of the ten other agents with sales agreed in Pinchbeck over the past 12 months.
When it comes to selling properties, real knowledge of the local area is vital. Lured by the prospect of low fees (always check the small print!) some sellers have turned to online agents. We would urge all vendors to take into consideration how well acquainted with the area the Agent hoping to sell their property is. After all, how much does a so-called “Local Expert” from out of the area truly know about the South Holland district? It is so important to be able to answer any questions potential buyers may have, and reassure them when queries about the region arise, at either the viewing stage or during the sales process.
Our local knowledge doesn’t just give vendors and buyers more confidence, it can even help achieve a better sale price.
