Why Let your property with us

All services can be tailored to fit your individual lettings requirements and, whichever service you choose, our philosophy remains the same: we go over & above to offer you a great lettings experience.

Why Sell with Northwood Reading, Tilehurst & Calcot

We know that selling a house can be stressful!

Alongside marriage and divorce it is probably one of the most stressful things you can do, so we take the time to understand you, your needs, what you’re trying to achieve, and work with you to find a great buyer at the best possible price.  We want to find a buyer who loves the place as they are less likely to walk away if things go wrong, and that keeps the stress-levels down for all concerned.  We’re also committed to providing regular updates, all the way through the process. There is nothing more stressful than not being kept up to date as things move along so, whether that is celebrating good news, or breaking bad news – we’ll keep you up to date.

A fully customised service

Every property is unique and all sellers have their own reasons for selling.  We therefore don’t have an ‘off the shelf’ service, preferring instead to tailor our services to your needs.  This starts with listening and understanding exactly what it is you need, then working out how to meet your needs.  Our agents will always begin by having a chat to find out a little bit more about you and what you are trying to achieve.  Whether that is simply understanding the best times to update you and how you’d prefer us to do that, or the best time to undertake viewings, we want to understand what you need from our service and also to tailor our service to fit in around your lifestyle.

The importance of local knowledge

Our sales team have over 45 years of experience in successfully selling properties in and around Reading and have built up vast knowledge about the local property market. We pride ourselves on communicating with buyers and sellers alike to ensure we give every customer a 5 Star Service. Whatever your selling needs are, one of our friendly team will be sure to help you.

We Switch You

Moving to a new letting agent is a bit like changing your bank – why would you do it if you don’t need to? It is also seen as being difficult and time-consuming.  There are, however, many reasons why a Landlord may consider moving to a new letting agent. Poor communication and lack of service have always been the main ones, but recently rise in fees and lack of support through the lockdown are also causing landlords to re-think their options.  We make the process simple and stress-free so get in touch if you want to find out more.

The Reading Property Blog

We publish regular updates on the property market as well as topical and, hopefully, informative articles that help landlords, vendors, tenants and buyers alike to make informed choices about their properties and the rental and sales markets.

Are you a legal landlord?

There have been many changes in lettings legislation over the last few months and this is set to continue.  It is difficult for landlords to keep up with this legislation and there’s no indication that you have done the paperwork in correctly until things go wrong, at which point it could cost you thousands of pounds in fines or lost rent, and you might even be unable to regain possession of your property if you haven’t issued the correct paperwork at check-in.  If you’re concerned about whether you’re a legal landlord, get in touch today.
