Southern Hampshire (Drayton) is now an established branch of the Fine & Country network, its team winning the Southern Home Counties Office of the Year 2010. The experienced and well respected team have captured 21% of the market share in the £500,000 – £2,000,000 bracket properties for sale and 32% of properties sold/under offer (data form Vizzihomes – July 2011), and has had to open a sister company, Town & Country Southern, to cope with demand for the same quality service for properties outside this bracket. The team’s secret is its total commitment to customer care and genuine enthusiasm for the local area.
The branch covers an area that includes many specialist properties, especially for those with a keen interest in the waters of the South Coast. Here, it can make a huge difference to the eventual sale if you use an agent who knows the area and can emphasise the importance of , for example, access to a marina or storage space for a boat to both buyer and seller when valuing the property and preparing the details. The area also includes rural and semi-rural properties, and a substantial number of town residences, for which local knowledge is key, when a few streets can make all the difference in terms of valuation.
