A game of two halves?

A game of two halves?

So the first half of the year has zipped past. What will the second half bring? While none of us have a crystal ball, a general view from industry experts is that the rest of 2015 will bring similar challenges to the first six months.
Stock remains at a premium and completed transactions for the early part of the year were down by around 18% on the same period last year, according to Land Registry statistics. For traditional high street agents, these issues represent a real problem, particularly when "internet only" agents are clearly attempting to, and apparently succeeding in, gaining momentum and market share.
These challenges need to be faced by agents with a readiness to change and raise standards in all they do. If the market size remains stunted, the best agents recognise the need to grab more of that market. The only proven way to achieve that goal is to be tangibly different from and better than your competitors.
Upskilling staff and raising standards in all customer and client interactions are essentials. There are some free tips and ideas relating to those principles in our newsletter. Get in touch if you'd like some more.
