We all love a bit of a bargain! I've got a number of offers on at the moment, so I thought it would be a good idea to summarise them in a post. Open House offer a full range of Estate Agency services, including residential sales, lettings and property management. We're also able to help sell and let commercial property!

Sales offers:

FREE 'Featured Property Listing'

Instruct us to sell your house before 31st January and receive a FREE 'Featured Property Listing'. On top of our professional photography, floor plans, and exposure on the major property portals, a 'Featured Property Listing' receives more than DOUBLE the views on Rightmove. This will increase your chances of finding a buyer significantly. The RRP for a 'Featured Property Listing' is £500!

FREE Management

Already have a tenant? No problem! If you're looking to change agents, or simply want somebody to take over the day-to-day running of your property we can help. Some agents will charge a fee for you to terminate their services, and in order to help counter-act that we will waive our management fees for 3 months from the date we first take over the management of your tenancy.

As part of this process, we will complete a property health check to ensure that you're up-to-date with all the recent legislation changes.

* Additional charge applicable for Let Only landlords.

** Monthly management fee is still due, it is only the £250 set-up fee that is being waived.
