  • Is your estate agency on target?

5th August 2019

Is your estate agency on target?

Are you on target to end this year on a high?

There is a little over 147 days before the end of the year.

And in terms of real trading time before Christmas, the window of opportunity is even smaller – around 147 days.

Is your agency on track to hit your targets for 2019?

Are you focused on how you’ll end the last quarter on a high?

The good news is even if you are behind where you want to be in terms of sales there’s an instruction pool, with good commission rates and very motivated sellers, waiting for you.

Housebuilders and developers also have end of year targets and that’s where well informed, well-positioned and forward-thinking estate agents can benefit.

Housebuilders and developers are just as driven to hit their end of year targets making September a great time to get your proposition ready, and to approach them with it.

It is a great opportunity for agents willing to work to win those because ultimately you are able to provide what they want – Buyers!

You can help them hit their targets and in doing so achieve your own goals and aims.

If that sounds easy well it is and isn’t.

You’ll have to work hard and smart but with support of the Land & New Homes Network, it’s something very achievable.

You might not yet know the new homes’ site staff in your area who’ve been merrily selling off-plan for months if not years.

The good news is it’s not too late to remind them why they should be working with your agency.

This is the perfect time of year to contact them because they tend to be more open to working with agencies especially if they have an urgent need to hit targets.

Some of those plots are going to be completing over the next 3 to 4 months and many may be sold to investors who will be looking to ensure they have tenants in place for when they complete.

Here are some questions to ask yourself:

  • When was the last time you carried out an audit of your sales and lettings offering?
  • What’s your proposition to developers? What makes your offer different and more compelling?
  • How do you grab their attention and stand out from your rivals?
  • How strong is your lettings’ offering to investor buyers?
  • What do you do to tap into those buyers?

At the Land & New Homes Network, we can help with our proven techniques, knowledge and marketing collateral.

These include yield cards, professionally designed investor packs, access to our industry experts who have decades of experience in the land and new homes sector, and much more including a network of fellow members opening up a far bigger pool of referral opportunities.

Our members have been enjoying phenomenal success and benefited from using this targeted approach of their local house builders – it works if you know how to do it properly.

So why not be proactive and take steps to ensure all your targets for 2019 are achieved and build a rich pipeline of sales going into 2020.

There’s never been a better time for estate agencies to get into the new homes market and never a better time to join our network.
