An entrepreneurial property agent is shaking up how home sales work in Dorset by removing many of the associated costs which peeve potential sellers to cut all upfront costs and keep fees at 0.75 per cent
Lewis Bliss who started Bliss Homes, has developed the business by building upon his career working for several well-known property agents in the Bournemouth, Lilliput, Wimborne and Ferndown areas. From their office in Ferndown, Bliss Homes covers the BH postcode area, and with their broad market experience is selling everything from small apartments to multi-million pound country homes.
We asked Lewis to describe the company and vision in his own words: “Growing up in the area meant that I won a lot of referrals from friends and people I knew, which provided a great grounding in all aspects of buying and selling properties. My ambition from a young age was to have my own business and create a modern, pro-active, independent, family-run company, with traditional values and an ethical approach to the estate agency business.”
What makes Bliss Homes different is their bespoke service, with a real personal, 21st century approach. Lewis is contactable anytime by phone, enabling him to update his clients and respond immediately to any questions they have. They take a modern approach to the industry offering services such as:
- No sale no fee, meaning a risk free service
- No contract period
- Only 0.75% paid on completion
Alongside this Bliss Homes still sees the benefit of improving on traditional methods, for example they have professional photographers included in their service and take pride in producing high quality brochures to showcase the properties to their full potential.
They have gone one step further than the national fixed-cost online agencies that charge a fee upfront and the local traditional agents that charge for professional photography, floor plans, brochures and locks the vendor into a fixed contract period.
“At Bliss Homes we are transparent in our service and fees. I was determined to offer more than a traditional or online agent, even one with local knowledge. I have combined that with a personal service, comprehensive property details and weekly progress reports – and I remain the point of contact throughout the whole valuation to sale process, from first meeting through to completion.”
Another financial benefit, which Bliss Homes has included in their unusual and innovative business model, is that they do not tie customers into, a specific contract period. Lewis added: “I’m confident in our services and we will do everything we can to secure the right sale for our customers with the fee only paid on completion.”
In using digital marketing to its full advantage, Bliss Homes is a great example of the digital revolution driving Bournemouth’s economy through innovation blended with old-fashioned customer service.
