New office

Edward Knight Estate Agents are delighted to announce the opening of our new Northampton office.  After months of careful planning we are now officially open for business in Northampton and we are delighted to say that we have already sold three houses.

Situated in the heart of Northampton town centre in a prominent position within the Northampton Town & County Club, our new office can be found at 9 George Row. Whilst we are up against many established local estate agents in the town, we believe that our blend of experience, professionalism and enthusiasm will see us quickly become the estate agent of choice for the people of Northampton. 

With the increasing strength of internet property portals, we believe that in a large town like Northampton our model of having one centralised office in the town centre is the future of the industry.  

Manager Andrew Denny comments, "There has been a small increase in levels of sellers choosing an online agent to market their home.  We believe that this is because home owners are becoming increasingly disillusioned with High Street agent fees". 

The majority of people believe that a strong internet presence is the best way to market their home instead of multiple office locations spread across the different suburbs of Northampton and as a result are turning to cheaper internet based estate agents.  However, it's a huge gamble, "Most of the online agents revert to a 'for sale by owner' tactic to keep their overheads down and pass on cheaper fees.  This means that you will be conducting your own viewings and potentially negotiating offers on your home.  Whilst you, as the seller, may be happy with this set up, not all buyers will feel the same.  It's a very high risk strategy that could potentially alienate some of your target audience”.

“What we have put in place is the right blend of everything. We have a strong internet presence and advertise on the two main portals, Rightmove and Zoopla. We have a prominent town centre location in the heart of Northampton and experienced sales staff to sell your home and take those stresses away. However, the biggest advantage is that by having one centralised location we don't have the overheads associated with having lots of offices to pay for and we can therefore pass these savings on to our customers whilst retaining all of the service levels that you would expect from a busy and experienced Estate Agency".
