They say a picture paints a thousand words – and never has the saying been more true than when applied to viewing a potential new home.

Take a look at the picture below. It shows the number of views per property, per day, for House Fox’s listings on Rightmove for Portishead. The astonishing thing is that House Fox properties are viewed more than TWICE the average amount of times of properties listed with other agents.

This is no fluke. Nor is it a specially selected statistic chosen when viewings were at their height. The period in question is in January, when viewings of potential new homes are traditionally low.
