It is a well-known fact that the best estate agents know the area they’re selling property in and this sale proves just that. Portscatho-born Lauren spent her childhood on the family farm on the outskirts of the village and so when our vendors decided to move from their family home they of course looked to Lauren and their school friend, James, to sell their property.

7 Springfield was purchased by our clients some years ago when they exercised their ‘right to buy’ as council tenants. The property was sold with a section 157 agreement in place, meaning that it could only be occupied by local residents. Given its enviable position and outstanding views, the property commanded a huge amount of interest – in particular from out of county buyers looking for a holiday home – but the restriction meant they could not purchase and occupy the property. 

Lauren, James and the rest of the team at Philip Martin were tasked with finding a local purchaser for this lovely family home and in November 2019 local purchasers were found and in February 2020 our clients moved out of their home of some eighteen years to begin their next chapter elsewhere in Cornwall, meanwhile Portscatho gains another local family 

It is key to ensure that your estate agent knows their area inside out. Their local knowledge is so important in not only agreeing sales but in seeing them through and we could not be prouder to be your local estate agent.
