Why use a Beaminster Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Beaminster 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.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Many agents in Beaminster may offer to undertake accompanied viewings on your behalf. The agent will show-off your property to those viewing it, underlining all of the most attractive features. Some viewers are more prone to tell an agent, than the property owner, what they dislike about a house. The result of this is that if you employ the services of a Beaminster agent, you are likely to get honest information about what details of your house need changine to achieve a quick sale, at the highest value.
In The Know
A good Beaminster estate agent will already have a shortlist of potential buyers (applicants) on their books, who may immediately want to view your property. This could result in a quick sale.
Although you may be confident that you're more than capable of managing the sale of your own property, the truth of the matter is that many of us have precious little spare time. Beaminster applicants will not appreciate having to arrange viewings around your schedule. In all likelihood you will achieve a faster sale if you use a good Beaminster estate agent.
A good Beaminster estate agent will be an expert at marketing your property. They will know how to advertise your property in all the right places. Ideally your Beaminster property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Usually an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Beaminster property post. Other forms of marketing include window cards, handouts, mail-shots and open-house days. Remember, the frequency and quality of the content of the advertising is just as important as where it appears.

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 unkempt 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.
Clean your windows - If your windows or mirrors are looking grubby, consider mixing some white spirit vinegar with a little water and washing up liquid, popping the mixture in a spray-bottle and giving your windows and mirrors a clean. (use this cleaning tip at your own peril!). The washing liquid will act as a de-greaser and the vinegar will act as an anti-foamer / streaker. Grubby windows or mirrors will create a bad impression on Beaminster property buyers.
Pay For A Deep Clean - If a girl was going out on a important date, there's a reasonable chance she's either spend a lot of time at home getting ready, or even go to a Beaminster beauty salon. If you're trying to sell a Beaminster property then don't treat it any different! Consider getting in a deep-cleaning service. Prices, and level of service will vary, so look around! They will steam clean carpets, curtains and upholstery. They will get rid of all of the dirt that you may not even notice. Your oven will look like new! Hopefully the overall freshness and odour of your property will improve. This should really help with your sale!
Open Some Windows - Consider opening some windows for a couple of hours before a viewing. If it's a hot stuffy day, the leave them open, if it's cold then close them. In either case, this should help to give the property a nice fresh feeling when sellers come to view.

Food For Thought
What does "Exchange of Contracts" mean?
This is when the contract becomes binding between buyer and seller. Up until this moment, the buyer is free to withdraw from the purchase, for any reason, without penalty. Exchange takes place over the telephone between the solicitors of the buyer and seller. Clients are not present at this time. A Completion date is set at this time. This is set in stone and cannot be changed.
Should I Employ A Web-Based Estate Agent?
Perhaps you've observed that there is an ever increasing number of "Internet" based property agents popping up. These are basically agents that don't have a traditional high-street premises and make use of the Internet to sell their property portfolio. These property agencies can sometimes drastically under-cut traditional agents. However, there are a few items of import to look out for ... Do they place adverts in the press? Do they upload your house onto the main property portals? Do they facilitate managed property viewings? If these things are not of consequence to you, then go-ahead and save a load of cash!
