The market will determine what the buyer is prepared to pay for your property. Our job is to help ensure your property is valued accurately, where full focus is to understand the local market values and to back up our valuation with real evidence. It’s understandably tempting to instruct the agent who gives the highest valuation, unfortunately you may find it takes you longer to sell and more often than not, you can find that the price you sell for is a lot less than you were expecting.
A recent report showed that the original asking price for a third of properties on the market had to be reduced by £25,000 on average before achieving a sale. Every property will sell if it’s presented, marketed and most importantly priced correctly. We are equipped with the latest valuation tools, having more time to focus on property market levels, thereby meaning that the most accurate, evidence based valuations can be provided. When obtaining valuations from Estate Agents, make sure they explain and demonstrate where they have got their valuation from and that it isn’t just a guesstimate, as you could also sell yourself short in some instances. Should you disagree with our valuation, or have been persuaded by another agent that it should be higher, then we can test the market for you but we would advise if your property isn’t sold within 4 weeks then the price will need to be reviewed. In all cases we will do our utmost to sell at the highest price possible.
We rely mostly on recommendations which will only come from doing an excellent job with previous clients. We are not a business that relies on volumes of properties to come to the market, as our model is to look after you from start to finish and give you the time needed to sell your home. Furthermore unlike some of the online estate agents that are charging you a fee regardless of whether you sell or you don’t, you won’t pay our marketing fee until you have completed.
An EPC is valid for 10 years and belongs to the house, not the owner so it is transferable upon a new owner taking possesion.
To check if your property has an EPC, go to this website https://www.epcregister.com/reportSearchAddressByPostcode.html enter your postcode and you will find your EPC there if you have one.
If your EPC is valid then you can use this, I would only suggest updating an EPC if significant work has been done to the property, I.E. New Windows, New Boiler which could effect the energy rating on the certificate.
Should you need an EPC to market your property, we can recommend a local company to carry this out on your behalf.

By charging a set fee, there is no incentive for your Estate Agent to negotiate with your buyer to get you more money. So we feel charging a percentage benefits everyone involved.
To operate an estate agency that charges a set fee and a low one at that, they have to deal with as many clients as possible, which means that they can’t offer the same service standards we can. You will know exactly what you will be charged from the minute you sign our contract.
Absolutely, before any viewer is booked to view your home we will carry out the following.
We can be as quick as you need us to be, if you feel happy enough to instruct Roe & Co on the initial valuation then we can do everything we need to do in order to prepare your advert on the day. Then we will get your advert prepared for you straight away and within 24 hours you will be on the market (more than often is sooner than this)
Yes we are local, we live and operate in Bolton. Roe & Co Residential Sales is a family run business with Kate Roe looking after our clients from start to finish and Stephen Roe whom looks after the marketing of our properties.
We decided not to have a high street shop because after working in a high street Estate Agency for several years and seeing less and less people coming to visit, the shop became redundant and was no longer a window to advertise properties in. After all, buyers are now finding their new home by searching the internet from home, work, even on holiday!
We have an office situated on Chorley New Road, should clients need to visit us.
