Open House Estate Agents offer a fresh approach to selling and letting homes. Using modern technology to advertise on more major portals, Open House gets your property seen by as many potential buyers as possible. By reducing the unnecessary overheads of running an expensive high street office, Open House are able to sell your property at a fraction of the cost. The local branch, Open House Brighton Coast, offer a 0.5% + vat fee for sales and £150 + vat for Tenant Find. We also arrange EPCs, floor plans and professional photography.
We cover an area from Brighton to Seaford, hence the name Open House Brighton Coast. Already we have successfully sold properties in Brighton, Hove, Burgess Hill, Woodingdean, Saltdean, Peacehaven, Telscombe Cliffs and Newhaven. Saving home owners £1,000’s in fees.
Stuart has great local area knowledge and over 25 years local estate agency experience, in both corporate and mid-upper market independent agencies. For him, the most important aspect of the brand is being a local agent but at the same time his clients benefit from having national exposure: “As we all know, the Brighton coastal area has a massive appeal and attracts many new residents from across the UK, and in particular from areas easily commutable. National exposure for a vendor in our area is invaluable.”
So how does Open House work? “People can either call or email me direct or simply go to the website. The lines are open 24/7 so you will never miss a potential buyer. After the initial contact, I arrange the valuation appointment and deal with all subsequent viewings and negotiations. Being the personal agent, both buyers and sellers will only deal with me; no junior office staff to navigate through.”
Whilst much of the Open House concept is internet based, for me the heart of the business will be that of a personal service and being able to achieve the best possible price as quickly as possible for a fairer fee. Right now I am really focused on the sales market, but I also be offer a tenant finding service for £150 plus VAT.
Born in Brighton, Stuart has lived in Peacehaven and Newhaven for the past 50 years and is married with two children. He is also a school governor at Peaceahaven Heights Primary School.
Open house is a franchise and has a network of over 50 branches across the UK, with local branches in Eastbourne and Worthing. Across the UK, Open House is growing, and that success seems to be founded on the simple idea of getting the best deals for both vendors and buyers and for the best price.
