A visitor to the Great Yorkshire Show has been presented with a £250 Provenance Inns voucher after winning a ‘Guess the Value’ competition to estimate the asking prices of four properties from across the region sold by Dacres in 1982.
Ms Jane Stout from Norland, Sowerby Bridge was one of many people to enter the competition, which ran over all three days of the show at our stand. The stand, which had a prominent position to the South West of the main arena, attracted a lot of visitors over the course of the 3 day show.
The voucher can be used towards a luxury stay at any of the Provenance Inns Group’s eight stunning Yorkshire Inns and Hotels.
Harrogate based Director Tim Waring, who joined Dacres from Knight Frank last year, headed up the stand. He says: “Our stand was incredibly popular with both existing clients whom we had invited along, and also by passers-by who were keen to get involved with the competition. Property prices are somewhat of a national obsession, and there was plenty of deliberating over the asking prices of these homes, which were on the market 35 years ago. Jane guessed all of the prices to within a few pounds and was also really keen for us to come and appraise her own home.”
Jane says: “I visit the Yorkshire show every year when I can. I used to live over near Lancashire and went to school in Skipton, so I already knew the firm and have always been impressed with how they market homes. I have a general interest in property and also wanted some advice on my property, which is why I went to the stand. The people were so welcoming and friendly and I loved taking part in the competition. I was really surprised when I found out I had won.”
