Conveyancing - When you are buying or selling Baldock property, then one expense that is difficult to avoid is the legal cost. It really isn't a good idea to cut out the solicitor, as conveyancing is a complex process, and there are many pitfalls. The good news is this: There is no good reason to use a local solicitor - and AgentQuote.co.uk can help to find you a quality national solicitor who will do the work for a much cheaper price.
Make some coffee - Most people love the smell of brewing coffee, even if they don't like to drink it. Consider putting on some fresh coffee just before a viewing, it's sure to create a welcoming odour for those Baldock viewers!
De-Clutter - It’s your home in Baldock, you’ve lived there for years, it feels like part of you, and you love it. But if you’re selling, then it’s time to move out mentally! Try to pack away as much personal clutter as you can. Leave a few, favourite items out so that the house doesn’t feel like a Baldock hotel, but otherwise present your viewers with a blank canvas, somewhere that they can imagine making their own.
Weed the garden - One of the first things a potential buyer will see when they arrive at your property is the garden. If the garden is scruffy then it will be a bad start, and make the wrong first impression. Pick up litter, cut the lawn and pull / kill any weeds that are growing in or around the path or patio areas. Consider hiring a pressure washer to clean up your path if it's looking really grubby.

Food For Thought
Estate Agents Commission Rates Explained
Many property sellers are not aware of the different commission rates that Baldock estate agents will charge for the sale of your home. It is a known fact that not all Baldock estate agencies charge the same fees and there is a very good reason why - so don't make your choice of agent on just the price. A number of Baldock agents could quote standard rates but upon appraising the property, may arrive at the conclusion that the property may be more troublesome to market than their typical properties because it's in an undesirable area or bad state of repair warranting increased marketing costs and sales effort. Conversely, other estate agents may quote a lower than usual rate if they think that they can sell your house without much effort and with great speed. A number of Baldock estate agents may not suffer with the overheads of larger firms who have invested heavily in town centre branches, high quality staff training, sophisticated computer software and top-of-the-range marketing materials and resources. That is not to imply that cut-price commission charges will deliver poor customer service and professional standards because one can at times experience inadequacies when employing bigger firms too. low price Baldock agents usually require a larger turnover of stock in order to survive and are as a consequence far less likely to be concerned about securing the best price for their clients. The final amount of the after sale proceeds in your bank account is surely of greater importance than the percentage fee your Baldock estate agent has charged in commission charges.
When will I have to pay money out?
As a seller, you will have to pay for a Home Information Pack before marketing can begin. Once you have secured a sale, your Baldock solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. The balance of the money from the sale will come to you on the day of completion. The solicitor will take their fee out at this stage, as will the Baldock Estate Agent. As a buyer, your solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. On Exchange of Contracts, you will be asked by your solicitor to provide 5% or 10% of the purchase price. On the day of completion, your mortgage money will come in to your solicitor who will pass it on to the seller.
