Would you pay an estate agent NOT to sell your home?
It might sound like an absurd question, but there are plenty of companies ready to market your home for an upfront fee without offering any guarantees for your money. We aren’t one of them.
We won’t ask for money and then sit back and relax: ‘no sale, no fee’, that’s our guarantee to you. Our fees reflect the time and attention we put into you and your property to secure the right result for you. You don’t pay us until we successfully sell your home, because we think that’s fair/

Royston & Lund are delighted to announce that along with other Guild Members in the Midlands area, on 17th October we will be holding an Exhibition at our associated Office in Park Lane, London. The exhibitions are part of the ‘London’s Looking’ campaign, which is designed to showcase properties to buyers looking to move out of the capital.
We are the exclusive members of the Guild of Property Professionals for the West Bridgford/South Notttinghamshire area and are hosting this property exhibition at the Guild’s Head Office on Park Lane. The Guild are a national network of approximately 800 independent estate agents, delivering local, regional and national property exposure.
Gary Lund, Director said “We are excited about bringing our properties to the London market. It’s a great chance for us to interact with London buyers, and for the buyers to see what we have to offer in the Park Lane setting. We urge any home movers to contact us in order to take advantage of this opportunity to access the lucrative London Market.”
Contact us today in order to arrange for one of our Valuer’s to visit you in your home with a view to discussing the marketing of your property, which will include showcasing the details at our London Exhibition.
It appears that the continuing rise in house prices and numerous reports on affordability have not deterred first-time buyers from entering the market.
According to new research from Connells, 49% of all property purchase valuations carried out in July were made on behalf of first-time buyers, a figure which has risen 6% on the five-year average.
The latest Survey and Valuation report from Connells detailed a considerable rise in transactions from first-time buyers as it showed 36,000 loans taken out in the month of June, this is the highest number seen from the demographic in 11 years with a huge 22% month-on-month rise and 6% year-on-year.
Corporate Services Director, John Bagshaw, commented on the findings of the report, stating that “Demand from first-time buyers is supporting the housing market at the moment. People are eager to get on the property ladder, with record high employment and competitive mortgage rates. But this doesn’t mean it’s an easy task to get a foothold in the market. Economic conditions are still tough”
Bagshaw suggests that while many first time buyers are eager to get on the housing ladder, the market can still be tough and feels they should receive further assistance; “With the value of a typical property rising £10,000 in a year, first-time buyers still need help. Perhaps they could be given an exemption from stamp duty”
This recent report also shows that there has been a small drop in new landlords entering the market, and suggests that “Government policies, including the stamp-duty surcharge and reduction in buy-to-let mortgage relief” have most likely made potential new property investors slightly hesitant to get involved in the buy to let market.
“People are still investing in the buy to let sector, but they’re typically existing landlords looking to expand their portfolio and increase profits to offset increasing tax bills. But the stamp duty surcharge, combined with the reduction in buy to let mortgage tax relief is potentially dissuading new small scale, amateur landlords from entering the market,” Bagshaw added.
The property market has also seen a rise in remortgaging to 36%, 10% higher than the five-year average as consumers are securing more long-term fixed rate deals as they take advantage of the competition amongst lenders when refinancing their home.
