It can’t be denied it any longer, Winter is coming. And no, that’s not a dodgy reference to a certain TV show – it actually is coming. As the nights draw in, we tend to hunker down, stay indoors and almost hibernate, putting our house hunting plans on hold. But why? It doesn’t need to be that way.
What if you could do almost everything online? What if you could stay cosy on your sofa whilst searching for your next home, book a viewing, request a valuation of your existing property whilst speaking to an advisor? Well you can!
In this article we’ll guide you through each of our online services. So get your pyjamas on, make that overdue cup of tea and get settled; we’ll be there every step of the way with just a touch of a button.
Our online trackers allow you to follow your sale or let whether you are a vendor, landlord, buyer or tenant 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We know life isn’t always 9-5 and that means you could end up missing out on important information if you’re tied up with other things. That’s why our property tracker allows you to follow your sale, purchase, property let or tenancy at a time that suits you. The service can provide you with information on website statistics and enquiries, viewing feedback and offers. If you use our fully managed service for your rental, you can keep track of any inspections, report any maintenance issues, and download any transaction history and statements at the click of a button.
Search for a property
Searching for your next property has never been easier. With 26 branches in Lancashire, West Yorkshire, North Derbyshire and the Rossendale, Ribble & Hodder Valleys there’s no shortage of properties to choose from. Simply fill in the location, price range and if you so wish, you can specify what property type and how many bedrooms you require.
Book a viewing
When you’ve found your dream home, you can book a viewing straight from the listing page. Simply click on the “Book a viewing” button, fill in your details and a member of staff will be in contact to arrange a time best suited to you. We can book viewings for the weekends too, making it even easier if you are busy during the week.
