About Newmans in Southam
Originally launched from their home in 2006, Mark & Lorna Kermode have worked tirelessly to make Newman Estate Agents, Southam the agent you can TRUST, with a hunger and desire to help their local community achieve their goal in moving.
Working through one of the toughest recessions and hearing the words “How are they going to survive without an office?” Newman Southam bucked the trend while other local agents closed down and moved out of area , they have proved that anything is possible and have now built a successful team of local, friendly and hardworking individuals who pride themselves on the morals which run through the core of the business; offering outstanding customer service and building relationships for life.

There is so much more to being an Estate Agent than people first see, it is very easy to be a poor agent by being quick to pressure the client for the business and not being around when a problem arises, but it’s very hard to be a great agent. At Newman we take pride in investing the quality time required for each client and offering the service that we feel they deserve. This gives our team a detailed understanding of our customer and their needs, enabling them the best chance possible to succeed with a purchase or sale.
Demand is high and it’s a fantastic time to move but due to the lack of property on the market, sellers are finding it difficult to find their dream home. Therein lies the problem, sellers are waiting to find.
At Newman Southam we offer a BUYERS SERVICE and have been successfully selling properties before they have even reached the market, therefore buyers are potentially missing out on their move. We work proactively with our hot buyers to try and find matching properties, we vet the properties on with other agents and have negotiated and agreed sales for our clients both locally and nationally. Please call our office today, we can make it happen for you.

Staging your home correctly is vital for a quick sale, when selling your house you must get yourself in the mind-set that this is no longer your home (because hopefully soon you will have a new one!) be brutally honest on what are the faults of your house and how you can improve them.
Walk round your house and write down what needs to be done and how much it could cost, if you cannot afford to do all the work needed, prioritise what is most important or speak to us and we can advise. Most homes are bought on a feeling the buyers get on arrival at the property, you have 3 chances to make a first impression and 2 of those are before they have even entered the house, lose your buyers at this stage and you have probably lost them for good.
1) Kerb appeal, what does the house look like from the outside, is it welcoming? Think clean windows, weeding done and the flowers.
2) At the front door, if the door bell is not working or the handle is hanging off then rectify, this gives off the impression things don’t get fixed (these are called red flags and will worry potential buyers).
3) Entrance hall/room, this is the buyers first insight into your home, make it a good one. We would never ask you to replace a kitchen or re-roof a property but if these things need doing and you are not prepared to do them it will be reflected in the offers you receive. Light and airy homes make buyers feel settled and always be aware of how your house smells, your senses are heighten in new surroundings, don’t overdo the bleach but at the same time wet dog is no one’s favourite smell. Above all tidy, tidy, tidy it might be a pain but this will allow a buyer to see the space and get you the best price possible.
