What is the importance of block viewings?


Selling your home is one of the most stressful things we go through in life. Not only do you have to organise your finances and pick a new place to call home, you also need to sell your existing home to make all of this possible.

So what is a block viewing and why are they so important in helping you not only getting your house sold, but sold for the best price possible?

Block viewings are becoming an increasingly popular way to sell your home among working professionals and busy parents. Inviting all prospective buyers to view your property on a single day means less inconvenience for you and creates a competitive atmosphere which often leads to buyers placing higher offers.

We wouldn’t want you to go to all the trouble of getting your home ready and have no one show up, that’s why we go above and beyond to market our block viewing events. In fact, the 90% of our views are hosted as part of a block viewing.

We manage viewings every step of the way, leaving you to get on with your property search.

Even if you don’t accept any of the offers placed on the day, a block viewing provides a good indication of the level of buyer interest in your home, what they are prepared to pay so you can ascertain whether the asking price is accurate.

The process begins with the sending of post and email invitations to our extensive buyer database. We then telephone customers who we know are actively looking for properties like yours to notify them of the event. The local press will then be asked to feature your property to ensure we get as many attendees as possible.

Our block viewings aren’t just open to to our database but to the general public, meaning you can attract a wide range of buyers. Unlike other agents we won’t just let any one off the street view your property; they will first be properly and professionally vetted to assess whether they actually have the funds or mortgage in principal to buy your property. This means you have the piece of mind of knowing that your property and its contents will be secure and everyone viewing is a serious contenter for buying it.

On the day of the block viewing, our agents run the show. They will guide the attendees through the property and answer any questions they may have. Whether you attend the event is completely up to you, but you can rest assured that your property is in safe hands.

The magic of block viewings is the competitive atmosphere it creates, much like a good clothing sale. It’s surprising how many buyers will make on the spot offers to ensure they can buy their perfect home. The agents on-site will look after all negotiations on your behalf, helping you achieve the best possible price for your property and often giving you a choice of buyers.

Is your current agent struggling to gather the interest for a block viewing or missing the opportunity of hosting block viewings? Looking to get your property sold for the best price possible? Call our team on free phone 0800 8620870 or book an appointment to meet one of our property specialists.
