Why use a Barnstaple Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Barnstaple home-owners trying to sell their own properties. Many websites now offer services to assist with this, but at AgentQuote.co.uk, we still believe there is great value in using the services of a good local estate agent to market and sell your property.
Here are some points to consider when deciding whether to find an estate agent to help you market and sell or let your property.
Most estate agents in Barnstaple will offer to do accompanied viewings on your behalf. They will show-off the house to viewers, drawing attention to the best attributes. Most viewers are more likely to tell an agent, than the property owner, what they don’t like about a house. This means that if you employ the services of a Barnstaple agent, you are likely to receive honest information on what details of your house need dressing up to get a fast sale, and at the best value.
Because we're all very proud of our homes
Those desiring to view your home can often be an unkind bunch, stalking around the house like celebreties, making unplesant comments and making discontented faces. Even the nicest houses are sometimes in for criticism, just for the reason that the first's preference is another person's dislike. For this reason it's perhaps best if you let a Barnstaple estate agent take property viewers around your home - and leave it to them to filter back any worthwhile critisizm. No one enjoys having their home picked on by visitors.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Barnstaple property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Barnstaple estate agent will be able to guide you towards a price that strikes the right balance between being attractive to both you and any potential Barnstaple purchasers.
Good Local Knowledge
An estate agent or letting agent in Barnstaple is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.

Pressurise The Property Agency - It is unwise to place too much reliance on the property agent to put the required effort into drafting the marketing hand-out and creating your window display details. You should always look very carefully at what they've drafted and don't be shy to demand that they make changes to these items if you decide that they simply haven't worked hard enough. Look for bad spelling and grammatical errors. Ensure that all of the particulars are correct.
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.
Find a good conveyancing solicitor for Barnstaple conveyancing - If you're selling or buying property in Barnstaple then you're going to need a good solicitor to do your conveyancing. The solicitor doesn't need to be local to Barnstaple to do your conveyancing. In-fact, you'll get a much better deal by using a solicitor that is geared up to deal with large volumes, rather than using someone local. Barnstaple conveyancing doesn't need to cost the earth!
Scrub Up - Don’t be afraid to get out your favourite cleaning products and really get stuck into those tired areas of your property. The ’nearly new’ look of kitchen units, appliances and bathroom furniture will really go down well with Barnstaple buyers.

Food For Thought
Should I Use A Web-Based Agent?
Maybe you've noticed that there's an increasing number of "Internet" based agents popping up. These are basically agents that don't have a shop front and leverage the Internet to sell their property portfolio. These estate agencies can sometimes heavily out-price traditional estate agencies. However, there are a number of things of importance to watch our for ... Do they place adverts in the press? Does the agent export your home onto the main property portals? Does the agency facilitate managed property viewings? Should these things not be important to you, then go-ahead and save a packet!
What are searches?
As part of the process of purchasing your property, the solicitor you appoint will conduct searches on your behalf. (You must pay for these). The searches relate to the property you are buying - and check for various things. Is the current ownership of the property all in order? Is the seller in a legally sound position to do so? Is the environment OK (toxic ground, tree preservation orders, radon gas, flood-prone etc.). Is the land registered? What are the status of the mains water supply, drainage and sewerage? Are there mines or mining activity affecting the property? And so on. The purpose of the searches is to ensure that you are buying a property legally, and with no nasty surprises.
