Result

Offer received within one week of Strategy Meeting; with HomeTruths’ help, offer eventually negotiated to asking price of £850,000

What they say

When Karen from HomeTruths first visited us, we expected a sales pitch, but we couldn’t have been more wrong.  She patiently listened to our story, and identified problems that we hadn’t even thought of.  Throughout the process, we found Samantha and Karen both to be approachable and very knowledgeable, even providing us with information that helped us to win our battle with the previous estate agent.  When we received an offer of £50,000 below the asking price, we were very tempted to take it initially, but once we had read the HomeTruths’ Report, we realized that our home was worth every penny we were asking for it!  We held out, and eventually our buyers offered us the full asking price.  We are convinced that had it not been for HomeTruths, we would have walked away £50,000 poorer.  They certainly earned their fee!”
