How did that property sell why didn't I see it?

How did that property for sale in your village or town sell without anyone seeing it on property portals? Off market sales are increasingly used by estate agents, at the request of clients, so registering your details with us will mean you hear about all properties coming to market first...

All our properties for sale are listed on our own website, but some vendors prefer a more discreet sale for several reasons, and so their properties aren’t published widely on property portals.

Vendors may wish to keep their sale low key to avoid publicity, to test the market at a certain price point or because they want only buyers who are ready to move. Whatever the reason, discreet marketing is a service we have provided for many years because some of our clients demand it.

At Jackson-Stops, we regularly market a significant number of our properties this way, and it is a process that's becoming increasingly popular with many agents and sellers.

Registering your details with us means you’ll hear about these properties first – before they reach the property portals. If you are serious about buying a home, it makes complete sense to ensure you are in the know about properties coming to market discreetly. As a registered potential buyer with Jackson-Stops you will automatically be included on our email alerts advising of properties that may suit you that are coming to the market shortly.

Once you’ve registered, you’ll be sent details of all new instructions – whether they are published on property portals or not – but you must be prepared to fit with a vendor’s plans. Several of our recent vendors of such off-market properties have been looking for a swift sale, and so being able to quickly proceed, for example having already sold your home or having the funds in place, can mean you're in pole position when these properties come to market.

Our discreet sales means this substantial, five bedroom detached family house of over 6000 sq ft, set in private gardens and located within walking distance of York city centre was under offer before it hit the market proper. 

Jackson-Stops was asked to visit this Yorkshire Coast property last year to undertake a market appraisal and advise on potential value. We then received an enquiry from someone specifically asking for property in that area and we mentioned it to the owners, who decided that if the price was right they may be tempted to sell. We organised a viewing, agreed terms at a price that worked for all and things proceeded to a successful conclusion.
