At ADM Residential, we aim to bring buyers and vendors together in the Huddersfield housing market.
We know there is a great level of focus on what buyers are looking for, and how vendors can better connect with these buyers. However, with demand greatly outstripping supply, this is a “sellers’ market”, and we believe it is vital that the needs of homeowners who are looking to sell are met.
We help local homeowners go to market
We are pleased to say we work closely with local homeowners, and we get to know what people want when selling their home. If you are looking for an agent who knows the local area, and who places the needs of the vendor first, we are here to assist you.
The headline findings from the study, carried out by GetAgent, are as follows:
Homeowners wanted to achieve a sales price that was close to the marketed price of the property, this was cited by 37% of respondents
30% of respondents were looking for a smooth sales process
Only 9% of respondents said a fast sales process was important
Being updated on the progress of the sale was only cited by 8% of respondents
8% of respondents said that expertise and industry experience were important
The importance of a realistic asking price cannot be overstated. You can see why some agents recommend an inflated sales price in the hope of the buyer paying it, but all too often, this strategy backfires.
We take you to market in an effective way
We will value your home in a realistic manner, and we will ensure you enter the marketplace in a robust and reasonable way. To arrange your property valuation, please contact us today.
Colby Short, Founder and CEO of GetAgent.co.uk, commented: “It’s only natural that many estate agents will attempt to stand out from the crowd by marketing themselves as the best around based on a wide variety of USPs. However, when it comes to homeowners, the only one they really care about is the price achieved and that it doesn’t differ too widely from the asking price that is often set by the agent. We know it’s common practice for many agents to overvalue in order to win business, but this research suggests it could be detrimental to their chances of winning business in the long term should they fail to deliver.”
Colby concludes by saying; “It’s also interesting to see that paying a low fee is of little importance to those looking to sell and this has no doubt come about due to many online agents failing to deliver on the service side of their proposition. However, it’s also interesting that the expertise and industry experience of a particular agent is also of little importance, as long as they can get the job done here and now.”

"ADM were involved with both renting my property and finally selling it. At every stage they have kept me fully informed via email and on the phone. They have been great at dealing with all my niggles whilst renting out the property including during really bad winters. Would highly recommend them for either managing a property that you're looking to rent or for buying/selling your home."
