Bramley and Teal created an Estate Agents database in 2015 and have steadily built their list up to include Estate Agents in key holiday lettings areas such as Rye, Hastings, Camber, Broadstairs and Pevensey.
Bramley and Teal now have prior notice of potential holiday lets being sold, offering free guidance and advice to agents and purchasers on potential income and occupancy levels.
Estate Agents reciprocate by passing Bramley and Teal’s name on to buyers or sellers who might be either purchasing a holiday let property or are in a chain break situation.
Chain breaks occur in many house move chains, causing sleepless nights and anguish for all movers concerned.
Renting a short term bolthole has been the answer for many people during 2015 and Bramley and Teal predict growth in this sector in 2016 and beyond.
People in a chain break are seeking a haven, far removed from boxes and utility switchovers, a holiday cottage provides that.
Bramley and Teal provided a holiday let adjacent to the sand dunes at Camber for a family in December.
The family concerned were in a long chain and needed to remove themselves from the chain for a period of 3 weeks, they moved into the holiday let, put all of their possession into storage and then had the luxury of gradually moving into their new home over a protracted period, allowing for stress free unpacking.
Tracey Young, New Property Manager at Bramley and Teal commented “Estate Agents are really important in the Holiday Cottage industry.
They are talking to movers at every stage of the process and can be instrumental in driving new holiday let owners to us and letting us know about potential new property owners in their areas.
It’s important that we have a good working relationship with Agents – we have, on occasions, had guests who have loved an area so much they have bought a holiday home there – it’s a two way process.”
