Today we are celebrating our 90th anniversary

Originally established in 1928, Richard Godsell pride ourselves on our hard earned and long standing reputation. Our success is as strong today as it was all the way back in the late 40’s and early 50’s and we are proud to be celebrating our 90th birthday!

The high standards set in place all those years ago have been upheld and in 2018 we are still one of the leading estate agents in the area and still committed to getting you moved as smoothly as possible.

High Street Agents get you the higher price!

The Advisory - Independent House Selling Advice recently conducted a study on the differences between online agents and traditional high street agents and the results are pretty astounding!

They established that good high street agents in 73% of house sales, are achieving a better selling price than pure internet-only agents and on average are achieving 5% higher selling prices for their clients,

According to the Right Move HPI for November, the average asking price for the South West is £302,023.00 which is a potential £15,000.00 extra just for using your local agent!

Other key findings showed that the right high street agent can:

Increase viewing numbers by 48%

Increase offer numbers by 64%

Generate a more secure buyer (or buyer willing to pay a better price) 73% of the time

So you can rest assured you are in safe hands with Richard Godsell, who will go above and beyond to ensure that you receive the very highest standards of service and achieve best possible price for your property.
