Gargan & Hart Estate Agents based in Chelston has become the first Torbay based estate agent to offer online house sales through the growing love2move network. Gargan & Hart will extend their service offering by introducing the online product that complements its existing business and offers house sellers in the TQ1 & TQ2 areas a choice of how they sell their home.
Brought to the Torquay area by industry experts Andy & Sue Coleman love2move is an online estate agency brand which allows local high street estate agents to offer fixed price online property sales for just £895 including vat. The concept sits alongside the Gargan & Hart existing offering, but is aimed at a different market, using an internet platform that can be accessed from anywhere, any time.
The highly experienced and professional team behind Gargan & Hart have a proven track record in achieving results and have recognised that some customers now want to retain control of their own house sale in return for a low upfront cost.
The love2move website gives control back to the consumer so buyers can view potential houses easily and quickly by opening the love2move website on a phone or tablet, browsing properties and swiping the ones that match their requirements. They can then communicate directly with sellers, book viewings, make offers or chat easily and instantly through their online dashboard.
Launched on Valentine’s Day last year love2move has an enviable record when selling houses and has achieved an average of 99% of asking price for house sellers. Having proven the online sales process can work for high street agents they have now expanding into the South West and are keen to work with other forward-thinking estate agents in other areas of Torbay as the network is set to grow in the coming months.
By using love2move over a purely online agent, clients have the additional comfort of their property value being verified by an experienced local agent who will advise on the price that will generate maximum return and a speedy sale. If a seller is thinking of selling online love2move with Gargan & Hart offers them the opportunity to trial the online route and if additional help is required along the way they can visit the agency on Old Mill Road in Chelston or even upgrade their service if they wish.
Gargan & Hart has stolen a march on their competitors and is the only estate agent in the area now able to offer a fully flexible service, which ranges from full traditional support to a fixed price internet portal service and anything in between.
Gargan & Hart’s director, Clare Gargan said: “We are delighted to be in partnership with love2move and believe this online service will sit perfectly alongside both our traditional offering and our modern method of auction service. Moving forward we are now confident that Gargan & Hart offers a comprehensive choice of selling options and look forward to discussing which service best suits each seller’s individual needs.”
Andy Coleman, Director of love2move South West, who brought the online service to Torbay added: “In this day and age people expect instant results and the process of buying a house is no different. At love2move we have put buyer and seller in direct contact to speed up the house buying process and remove any obstacles. We believe that by working with established, high street estate agents we offer clients the best of both the online and traditional estate agents.
We’re delighted to welcome Gargan & Hart to our rapidly growing portfolio of forward thinking independent agents. We have been looking for the right partner in Torbay and are confident we have found this with the forward-thinking team at Gargan & Hart and look forward to selling properties in and around TQ1 & TQ2 very soon.”
