Super-fast sale takes owner by surprise

Tue 17 May 2016

The super-fast selling skills of the Penzance team have thoroughly impressed one 90-year-old home owner in the town.

Led by Branch Manager, Caroline Lovett, the sales team took just five weeks, from instruction to completion, to sell the nonagenarian’s property in Coastguard Crescent.

The team organised six viewings within five days of instruction and agreed a sale soon afterwards. Solicitors were instructed on 11th April and the property exchanged and completed on 5th May. 

The vendor had lived in the semi-detached, three storey house for 45 years. She was pleased that a sale had been agreed so swiftly and had achieved close to the asking price. 

Caroline explained: “We were instructed on 31st March. The vendor has a lot of personal local history. Before it closed, she and her husband, who used to play for West Ham United back in the 1940s, used to run the post office on Chyandour Cliff. The vendor decided she wanted to move into a retirement flat where she wouldn’t have to face so many stairs and where she would have people round her if needed. She and her family were delighted with our service and complimented us on our professionalism as well as the speed in which the transaction completed.”
