We adopt a pro-active approach to marketing your property, using both modern and traditional methods.
Why use Enfields to sell my home?
We work under one simple pricing plan when it comes to selling property: no sale = no fee.
This is a testament to the confidence we have in our own ability to take any sale all the way through to contractual completion.
Paid on Results
Unlike at other agencies, the team here at Enfields are given no financial incentivises just for earning a client contract. Taking a “results-first” approach when it comes to rewarding our staff eliminates the risk of them ever overvaluing a property just to win custom.
Selling the Same Property for More
On average, we sell a property for 97.3% of its asking price - a figure that’s 2% higher than the national average.
While that percentage difference may not seem like much on paper, it can easily equate to you earning thousands more on your property’s final sale price.
Over half of buyers and renters look for properties outside of business hours, which is why we have a human-manned phoneline and website live chat available 24 hours a day.
So, while other agencies are sleeping, we are busy capturing leads for your property.
Displaying a property in its best light can help to increase applicant activity and lead to a higher rental return or sale price. It’s why we’ll only use the very latest photography equipment and digital retouching software when capturing your property.
Detailed Floor Plans
Floor plans help to generate 30% more interest in a property, according to Rightmove, which is why — unlike some of our local competitors — we use them on every one of our listings.
360° Virtual Property Tours
Our state-of-the-art, doll’s house-view tour of your property will give potential buyers the chance to navigate their way through your home using their computer, tablet or smartphone.

What else you can expect from Enfields
You will find staff at Enfields friendly and approachable. Through stringent recruitment and training procedures we retain experienced branch teams that are skilled in all aspects of property marketing and sales progression. Liaison with solicitors, mortgage brokers, surveyors and keeping everyone informed throughout, is all part of our role. This means that queries are answered and problems overcome quickly, taking the hassle away from you. We operate long working hours, seven days a week.
What is 'No Sale, No Fee'?
No Sale, No Fee means that your estate agent will get paid only if they successfully sell your property. It may sound like a given, but there are more and more ‘DIY’ agency options available to the public, where you pay an up-front fee whether they sell your property or not, and you have to do all the hard work.
The services offered by a DIY agent is not always clear to home movers. Low, up-front costs are tempting, but the services included in those costs or the amount of work a seller should expect to do, may not be so straightforward.
What is a DIY agent?
We call them DIY agents rather than simply 'online' agents because your high street estate agent like ourselves, also offer an online service alongside our high street presence. Enfields will advertise your property on the different property portals and will have other online advertising options available to you. A DIY agent is effectively a do-it-yourself agency service; you liaise directly with potential buyers to book your appointments, you carry out the viewings and you answer all the questions. In some instances, you will have to go through the sales progression too, which can be tricky if you are in a chain, or if things go wrong.
What is the difference between Enfields and a DIY agent?
There are many services available to the public with varying degrees of support. The table below is for guideline purposes only and will give you a better idea of what to expect from Enfields versus a DIY agent.
Before you decide to instruct someone to sell your home, we advise you to do your research and know exactly what is included in their fees and what you would have to pay extra for.
