Spoilt for choice, check the Dawsons relocation service

Spoilt for choice? You can’t beat a good recommendation!

Nowadays we have more choices than ever before. From the half-fat, decaf, double froth cappuccino at your local coffee shop to the fifty shades of white available at your local DIY store (Chapel Porth or Dover Skies anyone?).

So when it comes to selling your home, selecting an estate agent it is no different, except this time it’s not a £3.60 coffee you’re choosing, it’s finding someone you trust to help guide you through the biggest investment you’ll ever make.

With so many estate agents in the high street and online these days, it can be daunting trying to work out which agent is right for you.

So how do you even begin to choose?

Like most choices we make, it’s always more reassuring to make one based on a recommendation. And for us, there’s no better recommendation than from “Relocation Agent Network”. They chose us to be Swansea’s ‘Local Expert’ which means they not only
recommend Dawsons to every seller in the area, but also to the market leader in relocation services, Cartus, who relocates employees for their corporate customers.

Who Are Relocation Agent Network?

Relocation Across The Nation from Dawsons PropertyRelocation Agent Network is a national network of estate agents across England, Scotland and Wales and a division of Cartus. They search the UK for the very top estate agents to represent them as Local Experts and only invite one company from each area to join. So in the Swansea area, Dawsons are the only estate agent to be selected.

Why Did Relocation Agent Network Choose Us?
The team at Relocation Agent Network has a list of strict criteria they look for in any of their member agents:

  • In-depth local knowledge
  • Quality customer service
  • Proven experience in the marketplace
  • Innovation in business
  • Professionalism

… and as it turns out, we tick all the boxes.

So if Relocation Agent Network – experts in estate agency excellence – chose us, why wouldn’t you?

Thinking of selling this Spring / Summer?

Through our Relocation Agent Network membership, we are able to offer sellers a completely unique channel of buyer that no other estate agent in Swansea can provide.

RELOCATING FROM SEVEN OAKS TO SKETTY

Mortgage Advice Bureau (MAB) update: 

Dawsons Mortgage Advice BureauDawsons Mortgage Advice Bureau – What can we do for you?
Man entering figures in speadsheet on laptop
This week presented a great example of what Dawsons Mortgage Advice Bureau are doing for our clients day in and day out, and what we could be doing for you! After speaking to one of the major high street banks, a disappointed customer seeking to purchase for £250,000 was left £50,000 short on the mortgage they required. However, after visiting and discussing his needs with Dawsons Mortgage Advice Bureau, we have carefully sourced a mortgage that will secure him his dream home at £250,000, which will also be available at no extra cost with his monthly repayments. Not only did we get the required
mortgage, but we also saved our client payment of £100 per month against the original mortgage payment figure he was offered by his bank.

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

Dawsons announce the Matrix Deal

Dawsons Commercial and the Matrix Deal

Employed on a joint-agency basis with Savills, Dawsons have recently acted in the commercial letting of the well known Matrix One building, in Swansea Enterprise Park.

Dawsons announce the Matrix Deal

The Grade A office space offered Tenants c. 30,000 sqft of useable space with the Enterprise Park attracting national and international companies alike. Over two lettings, deals were agreed for a combined 25,000 sqft and this indicates that demand for high-quality office space within Swansea is present. Both lettings were agreed with well-known businesses and further interest still presented itself even after the deals were agreed. The Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust and the New Zealand Manuka Group have agreed new 10 year leases at the property. The ambulance trust will occupy the ground and part first floor with the New Zealand Manuka Group taking the second floor.

Gary Carver, director in the business space team at Savills Cardiff, comments: “We are delighted to have secured two new tenants at Matrix One. The building provides high-quality space with excellent parking. As a result of the lettings the property now only has one suite left on the first floor.”
Matthew Mason, associate with Dawsons in Swansea, comments. “These are significant and high profile lettings within the Swansea office market and it goes to show there is demand for high-quality space such as that at Matrix One. We now hope this will be the stimulus to attract a further high profile tenant to occupy the only remaining suite within the building”.

Dawsons announce the Matrix Deal

With the Swansea Bay City Region deal of £500 million aiming to transform the region into a digital super-hub, building on the strengths of the local universities, there is no better time to relocate your tech business to Swansea.

Monthly Round-up

Community News: Rugby & Rafts

Our Llanelli and Mumbles branches along with our marketing team have been busy during August with sponsoring two prestigious local events: the 2nd annual Burry Port Raft Race and the 30th annual Crackers 7’s rugby tournament.  

Earlier in the month our Llanelli office took to the water in the raft race while the marketing team manned the guess the balloons car, and even though the event had to be postponed from the Saturday to the Sunday due to poor weather conditions, there was a fantastic turn out for the day with all proceeds raised going to the RNLI and Afia Banjul Football Academy.

Crackers 7's Dawsons SponsorshipFurther into the month our staff and customers enjoyed a Bank Holiday Sunday full of rugby, family entertainment, a new bar and an evening of music.  For some years now Dawsons have sponsored the Crackers 7’s, bank holiday event in Underhill Park, hosting a hospitality tent, Hog Roast and some great company with a pitchside view of the day.  The sun has shone for many years, but this year the rain certainly didn’t dampen the spirits.

Industry News: Want a better mortgage deal?  

As many of us will now know on August 2nd the Bank of England raised the base rate from 0.5% to 0.75% – only the second rise in over a decade

Dawsons mortgage advisors 2018The base rate is the Bank of England’s official borrowing rate – i.e., what it charges other banks and lenders when they borrow money – and it influences what borrowers pay and savers earn.

What does this mean in real terms to those of us who currently have a mortgage and those looking to get on the property ladder and take out their first mortgage?

For current homeowners with a mortgage now is the time to check the status of your current mortgage, if you are linked to base rate you can look to re-mortgage to a fixed deal.

If you are a first-time buyer you will now benefit from some great deals on offer, our in-house mortgage advisors can offer deals fixed for 2 or 5 years with rates starting from 1.89% on a 90% LTV and 3.17% on a 95% LTV.

Despite this slight increase all is still positive within the property market, current mortgage lenders will no doubt continue to offer very good fixed deals, for further information contact your nearest Dawsons team and book your appointment now with one of our Mortgage Advisors.

Our in-house mortgage advisors are: James Boland, David Treharne and Shaun Sturgess
