Open House Attracts Instant Offers

Last weekend Thornley Groves – the leading Estate Agent in Hale and Altrincham – opened the doors to an inviting Hale property with an hour long Open House viewing on Saturday morning. Hermitage Road - Front of House

The 3 bedroom Semi detached home on Hermitage Road welcomed more than 30 groups of interested viewers through its doors during just a single hour of Open House viewing, attracting two offers on the day and subsequent offers after the weekend.

This enthusiasm provides further evidence of the popularity of Open House events, while the level of solid interest that the Hale property has generated will be welcomed news for a market showing strong signs of recovery.

With over 3,500 purchasers registered across Manchester and more than 600 in the Hale area alone, Thornley Groves maintains a large database of interested buyers and for the right property the Open House formula is proving to provide the perfect environment for viewings.

This property is unique in that there aren’t too many houses for sale in Hale that provide the opportunity for modernisation, and with subsequent offers for the property having been received since the open day this appealing family home is now in high-demand. We will be inviting interested buyers to proceed to submit their best and final offer, thus avoiding a Dutch auction with constant rounds of negotiations. The successful buyer will be required to place a small, non-refundable deposit which prevents interested parties from submitting inflated offers that they would later renege upon.

Hermitage Road - Garden“Every weekend Thornley Groves host Open House events to showcase their client’s properties, and are one of the only Estate Agents in the area to do so,” said Mike Groves, Managing Director of Thornley Groves Estate Agents. “Home buyers can often be reluctant to arrange viewings if they have not yet placed their own home on the market, but when you have a unique property like this, seeing it firsthand can often be the catalyst to make that move. These Open House formats are proving extremely popular amongst buyers, and we hope to host even more in the near future.”
