Beccles will always draw those looking to move to one of Britain’s best kept secrets, but in these trying times for the property market, what can estate agents do to add value to their services and prosper in an uncertain market?
The key lies in communication and getting the most out of next-generation technology. New lettings software from Beccles allows buyers to view, tour and monitor properties online, and its advanced mobile phone app technology means that agents can keep in contact with their clients better than ever before.
With social media functionality and web-based portfolios, buyers can get a clearer idea of the feel of a property, and arrange viewings and even make offers with the click of a mouse. The only question is whether estate agents can survive without making the leap into the 21st century.
