BalmerWilcock is delighted to be opening a brand new branch in Leigh town centre.

Situated at 37-39 Lord Street, the office will be open from Monday, December 15, and both directors – Adam Balmer and Christopher Wilcock MRICS – would like to invite all existing and potential new clients to call in for any professional and expert advice.

The opening of a second branch in a prominent position in a tough and competitive market demonstrates the ethos and desire of a hardworking and professional company to become the market leading agent in Leigh, Atherton and the surrounding areas.

To celebrate the opening of the Leigh branch, BalmerWilcock is offering a zero per cent commission promotion to the first 50 new instructions in the WN7 postcode area in January 2015.

BalmerWilcock has already seen a great response from the market, with places going fast. These are given on a first come, first serve basis, so call now on 01942 316444 to book a free market appraisal.

Leigh branch manager Chris Govin BSc (Hons) and his dedicated and experienced team with expert and local knowledge are looking forward to a tough and challenging market in 2015.

Chris said: “Historically, the market in an election year is always slightly subdued in comparison to the year before – the uncertainty in the market means vendors and buyers alike generally stay put.

“This, along with many experts’ opinion regarding an interest rate rise, means the market next year will potentially be very tough – albeit with the recent Budget announcement relaxing stamp duty levy – thus increasing the need for a professional and expert agent that can maximise the potential to achieve the best possible price.

“This only ever comes from a comprehensive marketing package and expert advice.”

BalmerWilcock offers an excellent and comprehensive marketing package comprising two local offices open seven days a week with lines open 8am until 8pm Monday to Friday, free professional photography and floor plan, guaranteed weekly advertising in the local press and advertising across all internet portals, including Rightmove and Zoopla.

BalmerWilcock has a centralised and full time property management department with a dedicated phone line and 24-hour emergency helpline, providing peace of mind for both tenants and landlords.

A full time in-house mortgage advisor can also help new and existing clients secure excellent mortgage products in an uncertain market.

Being RICS accredited, the mark of property professionalism worldwide, means BalmerWilcock can offer expert advice to all clients, from residential sales and property management to commercial lease appraisals and surveys.

In the run up to Christmas, BalmerWilcock is also running a competition via local primary schools, in which children will submit artwork of their own homes or dream homes.

The winner will be selected by a local solicitor and, along with being invited to carry out the official opening of the Leigh office, will be presented with a £50 Toys R Us gift voucher.
