Selling with Whatley Lane

Accurate Home Valuations

Our team of energetic local property experts will perform  a robust appraisal of your home. For those time poor we offer you an instant online valuation, however, we always prefer and highly recommend a home visit and enjoy a  tour of what is a hugely valuable asset: your home. Let’s face it, no one knows their home better than you! This initial meeting will pave the way towards a successful outcome. Together we can identify the best selling points… LOTS in fact. Combining rigorous research of comparable sales data, location and competitor analysis we will aim to give you a true picture of value.

All-Inclusive Marketing with Distinction

It’s our business to make your home shine and we  have a sophisticated suite of marketing tools at your  disposal. The extensive range of our FREE full  marketing offering deserves a section all of its own.  Click on the front of our annual magazine  publication – The Lane – to discover more. But  before you do, we can’t stress enough the importance  of collaboration during the property marketing phase.  Our success is dependent on your input at this stage,  just as much as the reverse is true. We take pride in  the quality control and display of our property portfolio  and we will provide you plenty of opportunity to  review and approve content before showcasing your  home to the world. Together, let’s have fun  orchestrating a fine blend of cutting edge digital and  traditional marketing mediums.

Virtual tours give buyers and tenants the opportunity to look around a property from the comfort of their own home, workplace or wherever they may be and to move around freely. This incredible and easy to share 3D modelling technology even gives scope to measure spaces to accommodate furniture. So, why do we like them so much? Apart from making available a 24/7/365 virtual ‘open house’, your buyer or tenant is far better prepared prior to making a follow-on in person viewing and can reduce wasted property viewings by as much as 40% and people are 300% times more engaged with a virtual listing as opposed to 2D imagery! *.  Example Virtual Tour

Of course, sometimes the display of a home may be better suited to professional photography only, as the expression goes: ‘less is more’. Your local property expert will be at hand to advise which route you should take. They will also give useful tips for home-staging ideas to help best curate your interior spaces. * Study findings by Property Week and Matterport respectively

We are equipped to create a finely tuned, head turning carousel of imagery. Our sophisticated post editing software enables us to replace lawns and skies, remove valuable items you may not wish to be shown and vary colour tones. For trophy homes deserving of heightened exposure, we can outsource to our local award-winning photographer for that alla David Bailey touch!

In today’s digital world, polished print is just as effective as a slick online campaign. We have a keen eye for detail and our carefully crafted pros will transform your home with story-telling. Whether it is to tease out provenance, reinforce specific unique selling points of a home or controlling the narrative in some cases, let us be your wordsmiths!   Sample brochure.

It never ceases to amaze us as to the number of agents who incorporate floor plans without room by room or even overall measurements! Leave the accuracy and detail to our expert. We also extend floorplans to our rental properties for FREE, which our tenants find extremely useful.

Local marketing can sometimes provide good opportunities to promote certain properties. We regularly advertise in the property sections of local newspapers and magazines. If increasing visibility to a wider audience is required, publications such as Country Life and English Home magazines may be more suitable.

Many of our enquiries come from potential buyers browsing our prominent office windows. We therefore regularly update our window displays with the latest QR code linked listings.
