Choose the right estate agent.

Choosing the right Estate Agent to use when selling your property is never an easy decision. Most people believe that all Estate Agents are all the same, we like to think that we offer something
a little different. Our family run business has been operating in Exeter since 2001 initially a Residential and Letting. We have taken steps, the right steps to evolve into what we are today.

When we sat down and decided to branch out into estate agency, we wanted to make sure we offered something people valued over anything else, we wanted our service and client care to surpass
expectations and ensure a stress free journey for our clients from home to home. Or indeed investment to investment.

Our business has been built around a set of principles designed to ensure our clients receive the best level of service from start to finish. We will listen to the most important aspects
of your journey, and tailor make a moving plan for you. We do not outsource our work believing that for our clients, having a point of contact for each step allows an open line of communication and leaves us truly accountable for our actions.

Sometimes we may give you information that you do not want to hear but will endeavour to achieve the best possible outcome. Whether this be:

  • The right price

We will give you an honest valuation supported by evidence. Experience allows us to market properties at the right price, based on 25 years of local market knowledge. Under-pricing your
home risks leaving money on the table while over-pricing means you may wind up sitting on the market for weeks until you have no choice but to lower the price to gain more attention.

  • The right marketing

We will market your property in the most appropriate manner. You are competing with other properties for the same buyers so we need to make sure your property is the one to stand out and
turn heads. Property marketing is about more than an online listing. You need to stand out from the crowd. High quality photos, an engaging and detailed description and clear floor plans present your home to its full potential.

  • The right buyers

We will maintain our buyer database, unlike other agents who operate central call centres, we know Exeter like the back of our hand. We speak to our database of registered buyers on a regular
basis to update them of new properties matching their criteria, recommending your property at every opportunity whilst making sure we do not use unsuitable buyers. This makes sure that the feedback we give you is valuable and gives us an opportunity to address
any issues.

  • The right negotiation

We will negotiate the best possible deal for you and your circumstances, following the whole process from start to finish. We provide the communication line to keep you informed of everything
that is happening within your sale. We will help overcome any stumbling blocks occurred through the conveyancing process and will achieve.

IMPORTANT CHANGES! Section 21

Don’t get caught out

SECTION 21 NOTICES – ENGLAND

CHANGES EFFECTIVE 1st October 2018

 

 

From, 1 October 2018, the changes to the Section 21 Notice come into force for letting agents and landlords in England. All landlords and agents should now stop using their existing Notices.

 

This will require all Assured Shorthold Tenancies (ASTs), regardless of their start date, to comply with guidelines as to when and how a landlord can serve a Section 21 Notice, which enables them to terminate a tenancy agreement.

 

 

IMPORTANT CHANGES TO SECTION 21 NOTICES 

 

 

When issuing a Section 21 Notice, landlords and agents are required to use Form 6A. The form, prescribed by Government, combines the two previous types of Notices into a single Notice for both periodic and fixed-term tenancies.

 

In addition, under the Deregulation Act 2015, landlords and agents wishing to issue their tenants with a Section 21 Notice should:

 

  • Ensure they have shared the How to rent: the checklist for renting in England guide with tenants;
  • Make sure the property has an up to date Gas Safety Certificate and the tenants have seen it;
  • Publish the property’s Energy Performance Certificate (except when the property isn’t required to have one);
  • Inform tenants which scheme their deposit is protected in;
  • Where the property is licensed, provide a copy of the licence to all the tenants.

Tis the season…

Tis the season of giving.

As Christmas fast approaches, how did that happen (?!) We often find ourselves caught up in the consumerism and complete madness of the season. There’s always more to buy, more treats to indulge in, more fillers for the stockings but here at Star Property Centre are trying to get back to basics this year and remember what Christmas really is all about. It shouldn’t revolve around the perfect tree, the biggest turkey and masses of gifts, we wanted to give something back. It is after all the season of giving, of loving, of sharing. That is why we have teamed up with 2 wonderful charities this year, Save the Children and Exeter Foodbank.

Exeter Foodbank does an amazing job at collecting and distributing food items to those who really need it, especially at this time of year when funds can be short. We are acting as a drop off for people to bring donations for the foodbank which we will collect and deliver so they can distribute accordingly. Conveniently located in the city centre, right behind Boots on the High Street, we encourage you all to donate anything you can spare, no alcohol or gifts though please, and just think of the wonderful difference you will make to a family in the need this Christmas.

We are also raising money for Save the Children by holding a festive extravaganza on Friday 14th December. We will all be donning our finest Christmas jumpers, eating mince pies and singing along to our favourite carols and we invite you all to join us! From 10am our office doors will be open for you to join in the fun and leave a donation for a coffee or a cake which we will ensure Save the Children receive.

We pride ourselves here at Star on being a local, family run business, with integrity and values, and that is why we believe it is so important to raise whatever funds we can for those in need. Please help us help them and give whatever you can.

Merry Christmas to you and your family from all of us at Star.
