Quality costs

The principle that you get what you pay for has long been accepted, in the same way that good work isn't cheap, nor is cheap work good. Quality costs more, but in a service where charges are based upon the results delivered for a client, this can only be a good thing. Value for money is clearly demonstrated in the result achieved. The quality of the service is in everything, from the photographs to communication. When I started this business, I did so on the premise that I wanted to deliver the service that I would be happy to receive. As a client, the outcome should be profitable and painless in equal measures. In almost every industry, the cheapest is rarely the best and in order to achieve a low cost - something is left out. Only too often 'the bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten'. Yet, why is it seen as attractive for the sale or letting of your property asset to be handled at the lowest price' Is this not completely counter intuitive to the end result you are looking for yourself' Property transactions are often the largest many of us will make decisions for. With such a high value asset, would any other decision be based on the professional charging the least, with the cheapest materials' If we assume your property deserves the best photography, this can only be achieved through using the best photographer, who will rarely be the cheapest. Equally, the best price for your property is unlikely to be delivered by an agent whose raison d'être was to be the cheapest. However, the best marketing attracts the best quality buyers and tenants. This includes a showroom for your property that is equally high quality. Warren Buffett said "price is what you pay, value is what you get" . Surely, value for money from your estate agent is not achieved by charging the lowest commission and producing the lowest cost marketing material' Rather, it is the most experienced professional delivering the best in advice and presentation. The beginnings of both scenarios are different, as are the outcomes. "If you think its expensive to hire a professional, wait until you hire an amateur" , as Red Adair famously said. The justification for paying that bit more for an experienced professional, is demonstrated in the results achieved. After all, you are paying for the price delivered, not by the hour. John Ruskin put it very well, "It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you paytoo little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing youbought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. Thecommon law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting alot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is wellto add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you willhave enough to pay for something better.' Our clients describe the value of our service the best, "campaign which was masterly, creative, hugely pro-active and with your eye for detail and relentless energy - it was hugely successful" "an enormous thank you for your phenomenal input in selling our home" and so on.
