Warning against hidden charges

A RECENT study carried out by Signature has revealed agents are advertising low or 0% selling fees, but with substantial hidden charges.

Charges disguised as marketing/withdrawal fees are increasingly common in the current climate and should act as a serious warning sign to all clients.

However, Signature can still offer a no sale, no fee service as we are confident in our ability to sell your home.

Traditional performance based commission gives you the peace of mind that we will remain proactive on your behalf.

In an even market, with no false promises or hidden fees, quality prevails, which is why you can always expect more from Signature by Mark Small.

We have started the year as we mean to go on.

From January 15 to February 11, Signature in Whitley Bay and Tynemouth have been ranked the number one agent on Rightmove (Rightmove statistics) for instructing new properties to the market.

Our core business is excellent customer services, building lasting relationships with our clients and going that extra step in all areas of the business.

Mark has always viewed Signature’s success as a journey and with the best possible customer experience in mind, a conversion at our Whitley Bay branch is taking place to accommodate our conveyancing team.

This exciting project will enable Signature to cater for every aspect of a sale, rental or purchase under one roof.

Another exciting development is the upcoming launch of Signature Exchange.

Signature Exchange is a service which will allow vendors to advertise specific criteria for their onward move and establish opportunities to trade/part exchange properties.

As you would expect from Signature, this service is the first of its kind currently available in the area and is a completely new, modern take on traditional estate agency protocols.

Many factors contribute to signature excellence.

We thank all our staff, local business connections and clients who help make our success.

The last two editions were met with excellent reviews and the properties featured within our latest edition achieved an outstanding 82 per cent sales ratio.

Our exclusive brochure is 32 pages in A4 high gloss and is an extremely high end, quality publication, with a contemporary design finish reflecting the image of the business.

For the spring/summer edition, 20,000 copies will be distributed across the coast, through doors, displayed in local businesses, handed to clients in our branches, on viewings and at valuations.

With extensive marketing coverage for at least six months, it has proved a fantastic marketing platform for both properties and businesses alike.

Our next edition will be released in the spring; however an online version of our previous edition is available to view on our website www.wearesignature.co.uk

Mark has created an estate agency with the standards the coast deserves.
