Many agents purport to sell distinctive, top end or ‘cream’ houses as we choose to call them, and at Reeds Rains we don’t just market them; we actually achieve sales for our customers.

It is very easy to say you are a prestige agent and have lovely glossy brochures, sharp suited ‘marketing executives’ and attractive ‘for sale’ boards, but it’s delivering sales that is the tricky bit, and that is where hard work, a dedication to property and an ability to work in all different price ranges come in.

At Reeds Rains we don’t feel the need to employ specialists who only deal with Cream property as each and everyone of our team are suitably trained to be able to support and help any customer whatever their position or needs.

By communicating in the appropriate way to find either a suitable purchase or indeed a suitable purchaser we have built a terrific reputation as the market leader in Chorley and Leyland.

By maintaining a local office presence that sells and lets homes across all price bands you do not need to go anywhere else whether you would like advice on your first purchase, 2nd or even a Cream property of £500,000.

The opposite page speaks for itself, we sold 31 % of property above £250000 and 32 % above £350000.

If you’re looking for a property that stands out from the crowd, then Reeds Rains’ Cream range could be just what you’re looking for.

Launched at the start of 2010, Cream specialises in property that boasts unique features and offer a special, one-off home in a range of prestige locations.

Properties currently on offer include a four-bedroom lodge in Whittle-le-Woods, a four bedroomed detached house in Euxton and a stunning period home in White coppice.

Although there is no particular price bracket for a Cream house, most properties in the range are over £300,000:

Buyers for these properties are not necessarily from the local area, and therefore it needs different marketing.

Bringing Cream’s prestige homes under the Reeds Rains umbrella simplifies the buying process.

Buyers want to buy and sell from one agent, so it make sense to offer these properties within the same portfolio. People don’t have to go to five different places or to specialist agents, they can just come in here.

As we have 200 offices nationwide we have much more reach.

If the right buyer is out there, we will find them.

People are intimidated by prestige ranges. They don’t want to talk to someone intimidating; they want someone on their level.

The special treatment buyers receive when purchasing Cream property begins from the first moment they begin looking.

Cream has its own website with a range of unusual features, including a Google Street View of the property and a huge range of high-quality photographs.

The majority of properties also allow prospective purchasers to take an audio tour, offering a TV-style advertisement for each home.

The exquisite Cream brochure is laminated and features a selection of 11 external and internal photographs to show your home in its best light.

Not only do we take great care and coordinate with you every step of the way during its production, we can offer aerial photography and even add in a blue sky should the Great British weather not be delivering what we need.

There has never been a better time to take the plunge and invest in a luxury home.

Mortgage rates are still the lowest they have been for some time as there’s been no base rate increase for over two years.

Property prices have seen a zero rise in the last 12 months, and as prices fell over the previous two years, luxury houses are more accessible than ever before.

If you’re moving sideways or upmarket it’s definitely the right time to do it.
