I’m not Willy Wonka and Lovett’s isn’t a chocolate factory
This week last year marked what would have been the 100th birthday of the World’s No 1 storyteller – Roald Dahl.
The man was a genius, with an imagination wilder than an over enthusiastic estate agent’s description of a pokey studio flat overlooking a busy motorway.
One of Dahl’s greatest creations was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. A place where everything was sugar coated.
At Lovett Sales & Lettings we’re not ones for sugar coating things and we take pride in being honest.
That approach applies to the valuations we provide. Some agents will vastly exaggerate a property’s value to lure homeowners into instructing them. This is over-valuing very rarely leads to a happy ending.
It can also mean a property gets stuck on the market for months as its valuation is way off the mark – and who wants that? Fairytale valuations ultimately cost the seller time, money and can cause a lot of stress.
It really doesn’t have to be that way though – with honest and expert valuations you won’t need to worry about any Tales of the Unexpected (also written by Dahl but with a lot less chocolate).
Thanks for reading and if you have any property related questions that you want an honest and expert answer to don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. You won't find any white socks, cheap Burtons suits or an unnecessary level of hair product at Lovett's, I promise!
