Laceys Estate Agents in YeovilMarketing of the highest quality with Laceys Estate Agents in Yeovil
There’s certainly a lot of choice when it comes to picking an estate agent to act for you. From online-only firms, to the corporate giants and everything in between. If you choose Laceys to market your home you can be assured that you are dealing with 100% genuine “local property experts” who have truly unbeatable local knowledge and vast experience. The firm is a family-run affair, but with the peace of mind that comes with being “Regulated by RICS” (the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors).
We like to be up-front about what we charge you, with no hidden costs, making our fees transparent, competitive and arguably the best value for money in the area. More than anything though, we are on hand to guide you through your transaction with our friendly and refreshingly professional approach. No call centres, no flannel, no hassle. We’re great at what we do, and what’s more we do it with a smile!
We also have a range of brochure styles to suit your property and our experienced negotiators will create a draft brochure including photographs and floorplans for your approval AT NO EXTRA CHARGE.
However, to show your property off a little more you might like your property to benefit from one of our upgrades. The great thing about these is that we can tailor make a package to suit your property and your budget, AND AT NO UPFRONT COST TO YOU. We simply add these to your invoice at the end of the transaction, or ask you to reimburse us at “cost price” should you withdraw the property at a later date.

Most people employ us on a “Sole Agency” basis, which means you choose one agent to act for you at a time. Occasionally people ask us to act for them on a Joint Sole Agency basis (where two agents act for you at the same time and split the fee between them) OR a Multiple Agency basis (where more than one agent acts for you and only the selling agent claims a fee). We take these instructions on a case by case basis and will happily give you quote depending on your circumstances, although these days you should rarely need to employ more than one agent at a time.
At Laceys we offer:-
Professionally printed property brochures
Our sales brochures really are something special, and not a week goes by without compliments from buyers impressed by the standard of our presentation. The key to a sale is to encourage buyers to view your property. Many buyers will make a decision to view or not to view purely from your brochure. A poor brochure can seriously hamper your chance to effect a sale. Our modern contemporary brochures include up to 10 photographs, location maps, floorplan, and extensive descriptions. All of our brochures are available to download from our websites in a PDF format.
We are constantly asked – “why don’t all agents use floorplans?” and we can see why! They provide invaluable information to the buyer prior to, and indeed during and after a viewing of your home.
We are licensed to incorporate maps into our brochures which include location maps, street maps and more importantly plot maps. These are not just for convenience, they also help to show the size and orientation of the plot or garden, and can help to highlight a nice aspect, perhaps over countryside for example.
Prominent office location / giant interactive touch-screen display
We believe that an eye-catching window and an inviting office environment for buyers to discuss their property requirements creates the right atmosphere for selling. Our spacious and modern offices are conveniently well placed in the town centre with a large window display which includes an electronic 24/7 interactive touch-screen display.
Contemporary and interactive website
The internet is an ever increasingly important medium for attracting buyers particularly those who live some distance away from the area, and from abroad.
Our interactive website allows buyers to request a viewing, download a full brochure, e-mail details on to friends and register their details to be kept up to date with our virtual mailing list.
Computerised mailing list
In addition to direct enquiries, our high quality brochures are distributed to all applicants on our computerised register matching the property criteria. Applicants can choose to have their brochures sent by traditional mail, or e-mail.
Exposure on the major property websites
In addition to our own successful website, all our properties feature with the most popular property portals offering national and international coverage for your property.
Internet exposure is now the key element with any successful marketing programme and our approach continues to evolve as new initiatives and technologies become available. Some websites also allow us to monitor the progress of your property by providing useful reports that help us to review the marketing strategy.
Low key marketing
Many customers prefer a lower profile approach to selling their home. With this in mind we can arrange for a more discreet marketing scheme prior to full marketing and exposure to the whole market. This popular service can generate valuable feedback and interest without the commitment of our high profile campaign.
If your property is just that little bit “extra” special, we can tailor a marketing package to suit it, including high profile national advertising in newspapers and magazines. We benefit from discounted rates with many of the major publications and a price can be made available upon request.
As the marketplace is constantly changing, we feel it is important to review the marketing of your property and depending on the interest you are receiving we suggest this should be approximately every 4 weeks. Whilst you may find that interest in your property ebbs and flows (sometimes for no apparent reason), we like to keep your marketing fresh to ensure you are attracting the right buyers at the right time. Selling your property is very much a two-way thing between you and your agent. We want you to feel that the door is always open for a chat or an update whenever you want one.
Mortgages, Conveyancing, Surveys and Removals
Unlike some of our corporate competitors we do not make you feel obligated to use us to arrange your mortgage, solicitors, surveyors or removals. We are able to point you in the right direction and offer quotes for all of the above services whether or not you are buying or selling through us. Just contact us and we will be happy to help. Therefore if you are looking for an agent who can offer everything under one roof, look no further.
