All available properties for lettings


If you’re looking to buy, sell, rent, or let, then you’ve come to the right place, as Gordon Barker specialises in residential sales and lettings. Perhaps you own a portfolio of properties that you’d like us to manage, or maybe you’re a first-time buyer looking to get on the property ladder. Maybe you don’t have the budget for buying just now and are looking for somewhere to rent. 

Whatever your requirements might be, our Dorset team are here to help you find the right property to suit your preferences and budget. And the key to successfully letting and selling properties lies in the advert. If the advert is sub-par, lacking information, not current, and without decent quality images, buyers/ renters may be put off entirely. 

The process of creating property adverts isn’t particularly exciting, but it’s necessary to maximise the amount of interest that your Dorset property receives. There are certain details that are obvious and others that are less so. Fortunately, the team at Gordon Barker know precisely what goes into creating an eye-catching advert that’ll draw plenty of attention from the right people. 

We’ll carry out an inspection of the property, take down all the essential information and take plenty of glossy, colourful pictures that showcase the property at its best. We’ll then put together a detailed description so that buyers/ renters know everything there is to know about the property. The advert will then be created and displayed across various platforms to gain maximum traction. 

And, of course, you can expect Gordon Barker to assist you in all other capacities, too, whether you’re a buyer, seller, renter, or landlord. We take the stress out of finding somewhere to live, letting, or selling a property by providing a comprehensive, friendly, personalised service. By choosing our estate agents Dorset and letting agents, customers can enjoy complete peace of mind. 

This is largely because of how much experience our Dorset team possesses. Over the years, we’ve helped customers buy, sell, rent, and let countless properties ranging in size, type, age, and location. From a one-bed flat to a five-bed house and bigger, our portfolio comprises a wide range of properties, all with up-to-date property adverts. 

Whether you’re looking to move to the suburbs, find somewhere by the sea, retreat to the countryside, or soak up the city life, we’ve got you covered. 

While property adverts are certainly relevant to buyers and renters, our focus here is mostly on sellers and landlords. Rest assured that we will market your properties to the best of our abilities, ensuring that they receive the highest amount of exposure possible. You’ll also receive honest, impartial advice from us, and our vendor’s guide will provide tips on how to entice even more prospective buyers and renters. 

Our goal is not to coerce you into any decisions you don’t want to make. Instead, we will make sure that you have the advice, suggestions, and facts that you need to make an informed decision, whether you’re looking to buy or rent or looking to sell or let.  

Once you’ve purchased, sold, rented, or let your first property with Gordon Barker, you’ll wonder why you didn’t call us sooner. To learn more about our property adverts or the other services we have to offer, keep reading. Or, to speak to a member of our Dorset team, call us now.

While it’s true that more information is often better, there is a fine line between important and superfluous details. This is especially true with property adverts and something we keep in mind when creating them. From a buyer or renter’s perspective, you’re likely viewing dozens if not hundreds of property adverts.  

You’ll often scan the adverts, picking out the most important details, only choosing to drill down further for properties that catch your eye. To make life easier, we feel that adverts should present only the most crucial information, such as: 

  • What the Property is Like with a Short Description 
  • Location 
  • Size (including the number of bedrooms) 
  • Condition and Age 
  • Asking Price 
  • Point of Contact for Enquiries 

What most people don’t want to know is details such as where radiators are located, the make of the boiler, the name of the bathroom or kitchen suite, where the water stop-cock is located, etc. These are details that you can enquire about if you’re interested, but don’t really provide anything useful when helping you make your decision. 

For this reason, our property adverts, Dorset customers, exclude all but the essential details, so you know precisely what you need to know before inquiring further. And we don’t weigh our property adverts down with extensive “flowery” descriptions that can often prove misleading.  

Too much detail can be confusing and off-putting. So, our descriptions are short yet concise and include as much detail as is required to help buyers or renters decide whether to rule the property out or book a viewing. The purpose is simply to encourage individuals to inspect a property, during which time they are free to ask questions and request more specific details. 

Most do not choose to purchase or rent a property on the strength of the details alone, Dorset customers. Whether it’s a flat, bungalow, townhouse, or a detached or semi-detached house, all they want to know is the important details. So long as these are present, supported by high-definition internal and external images and the correct pricing, an advert will entice interested parties. You can trust Gordon Barker to ensure that all these boxes are ticked. 

And by presenting only the important details, we also avoid the unpleasantness of potentially breaching advertising regulations. This can often happen when adverts are written with the sole intent of enticing as many interested parties as possible with no regard for accuracy. Often, included details can be misleading or incorrect, such as the example above of the make of the boiler. Such details aren’t important in the grand scheme. 

When you choose to market a property to sell or let with Gordon Barker, you can count on us to market your property to the fullest extent of our capabilities. We’ll ensure that prospective buyers/ renters have all the important details while leaving out all the “fluff”.

Free Valuations 

If you’re looking to sell your home in Dorset, the first step is to find out precisely how much it’s worth. You can do this in one of two ways – either by requesting an in-person or online valuation. The latter is less accurate, though quicker and more convenient, providing you with a ‘ballpark’ figure that you can follow up on at a later date should you choose to do so. 

Online valuations are especially useful if you’re just interested in learning what your home is worth, especially if you haven’t had it valued in a long time or at all. If you do have it valued, then choose to wait a few years before selling, you should always have it valued a second time. We suggest an online valuation followed by an in-person valuation to learn the precise value. 

By having a precise value to hand, you can be confident that you’ll be listing your property for the amount it’s worth. This saves you from letting the property go for less than its worth or asking too much and scaring away buyers. 

To get your property valued in just 60 seconds, take advantage of Gordon Barker’s FREE online valuation service. Simply fill out our online form supplying the following details, and we’ll come back with an honest, no-obligation valuation of your flat, bungalow, or house: 

  • Address and Post Code 
  • Original Purchase Price 
  • Number of Bedrooms 
  • Date of Original Purchase 
  • Age of the Property 
  • Location 

Our Dorset team will return with an estimate of your flat, bungalow, or house’s value. We’ll also supply you with current, detailed information regarding the prices that other properties have sold for in your area.
