Leaving London for the Country

Leaving London for the Country

Last week saw us heading up to London with lots of glossy brochures to promote a whole variety of our beautiful West Sussex homes. 

We were once again exhibiting at the annual London & Country Property Show which this year was held at Chelsea Old Town Hall. I’ve been going each year on behalf of Henry Adams to talk to Londoners thinking of leaving the city for life in the countryside. 

The concept of taking the country life to city-dwellers may not be a new one but we’ve certainly found it builds relationships with London buyers and whether they are looking to move in the short term or long term, they know they can call us for advice. 

What’s more, we can let them know when a property which fits their wish list comes on to the market so they can head straight down to view. 

As affiliates of The London Office, we have a ready connection to London buyers as well as a national and international reach thanks to internet marketing. But there’s nothing quite like meeting people face to face, whether they are looking to buy and can explain just what they’re looking for rather than tick on online box, or selling.

Our office in Storrington, a Grade II listed building right in the heart of the village, was once voted one of the loveliest estate agency offices in the country!  We’re lucky to work in such lovely surroundings but more importantly, it’s a great place to welcome people in to discuss their property requirements. 

One of the most important aspects of choosing an estate agent to sell your home is whether you can build a successful rapport. If it’s built on trust, understanding and professional integrity then there’s a high chance of success, both in terms of finding you a buyer at the best price for your timescales and in seeing it through to exchange and eventual completion. 

There are many obstacles along the way which need to be discussed and cleared in order to reach the end of the process and we’re here to help do just that. 

For those leaving London for the country, or those leaving the country for the coast, it’s great to hear people’s individual stories and to help them make those dreams a reality. 

If you’d like to come in and talk to us about your next property move, please get in touch on 01903 742535 or just visit us in Mulberry House, The Square, Storrington.
