Last year saw a significant increase in demand for properties in the Bury St. Edmunds area, and with it, an equally noticeable number of new Estate Agents opening up in the town.
So it may be surprising to learn that this month sees yet another new business opening their doors. Suffolk Bungalows was launched on January 1st and promises to offer a service that compliments existing agencies rather than directly competing against them.
Ian Gausden, Co Director of Suffolk Bungalows explained "We already have a thriving estate agency business in the town under the name of Mortimer & Gausden, but for some time have been very aware that a certain sector of the market was not being fully supported" he continued "As our name suggests Suffolk Bungalows deals with the sale of Bungalows throughout Suffolk" he added "Having offices in the town centre of Bury St. Edmunds makes perfect sense, as the town is ideally placed geographically for potential buyers to not only explore the Bury area but also those towns and villages further afield".
So why only Bungalows you may ask? Andrew Mortimer explained "whilst one wouldn't want to generalise, I think it is fair to say that when people buy a bungalow, it tends to be with a view to living in it for many years, rather than as a 'stop gap' or 'stepping stone' to their next home." He added "for this reason, finding the perfect bungalow can often take some time, made even harder by the fact that the number of bungalows available compared to houses is very unbalanced". We recognise that by specialising in bungalows we can provide a centre where potential buyers and sellers have a wider choice of property and indeed services that are more appropriate to them, rather than the 'One size fits all' service that most other agents offer.
Andrew continued "we also know that when people decide to sell their bungalow it is often with a heavy heart and if they haven't moved for a while the whole process can seem a little daunting" he added "Suffolk Bungalows is very much a service lead company and whilst we naturally use all the latest technology to market our properties our most useful tool is our ears! - we listen to our Clients needs and work with them to ensure their move goes through at a pace they feel comfortable with. Our intention is to support those looking to move from start to finish, which will also no doubt include lots of cups of tea and hand holding along the way! "
Ian ended by saying "This is a very exciting time for us. We genuinely believe that we can provide a quality of service that is currently unavailable elsewhere" he added "We are confident that people will appreciate the benefits of dealing with an agent who focuses purely on the sale of bungalows and we have already had an encouraging level of enquiry and positive feedback"
