Property website


How having a website is crucial in the property market


There’s a lot to consider when selling your home.

But have you ever considered the power of your estate agents’ website when it comes to the successful sale of your home?

Probably not.

When looking across all the estate agents you could use, you need to ensure that you choose carefully, some will not be able to dedicate an audience when your property gets instructed onto the market.

As one of the largest estate agent across Stockport, Tameside and areas of Manchester we have spent years developing our website, tailoring it to each of our client’s individual needs, taking any feedback on board and reflecting this in our ongoing changes to the website.

This means we can ensure we provide the means for people to find, book a viewing and eventually purchase your home with absolute ease.

When people are searching for a property, we can guarantee that they will be able to find the specific type in a few simple steps, meaning if you are on the market with us, we can ensure that the right people are viewing your property.

In turn, this then means more relevant people are exposed to your home, therefore increasing the number of viewings your home receives, and then a faster sale.


Ranking


We’re one of the top-ranking estate agents in our area on the search engine results page. What this means is if someone were to search the term ‘estate agent Edgeley’ we are the top website, which helps massively to increase the traffic to our website.

But don’t just take our word for it. Our website frequently achieves high volumes of traffic with people across the entire North West looking for their perfect home. In 2018 we consistently receive over 30,000 visitors from prospective buyers in one month alone.


Can any other local estate agent claim that? 


Website property search


We have a specially trained in house website developer, who is constantly working on improving every part of our website, from the page speed to the tools available for the user. This in itself shows how passionate we are about having a great website, something we are very proud of.

One example of something that has been implemented on our website in recent months, is the favourites. You can personally select your favourite properties and have them all sat in one place, meaning the user experience is even easier when looking for the perfect property.

We also offer 360 tours on a selection of our properties. This is an interactive virtual tour where you can view the entirety of a property, allowing you to view parts of the property that you may not have been able to see with images alone. See more here about the 360 tours we offer.

We are always keeping our website fresh and up to date, this includes having an in-house team who are actively adding news posts to our blog (add link). These include anything from top tips on moving home, right the way to local news.


Mortgage calculator 


Next to the properties, we have a really useful tool where you are able to calculate a mortgage for that property. This includes property price, deposit, annual interest and repayment period.

For example, if you were looking at a property priced at £180,000 the calculator shows what deposit would be required, what your monthly payments would be with your deposit etc.


Sold prices in the area 


We also have a tool that shows the user what properties have sold for in the area. This allows the user to get a real grasp of the value of houses in the vicinity of the property you are currently looking at.

For example, if you are looking at a property on Wakefield Road in Stalybridge, the tool shows you what prices nearby properties have recently sold for.

With all this in mind, why would you want to go elsewhere? This is just one of many reasons why you should go with Edward Mellor when you want to sell your property.

If you are interested in getting on the market with us, for this February only we are giving away a free Amazon Echo to anyone who instructs with us*. Take a look here to find out more.
