Why use a Bideford Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Bideford 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.
The Right Value
A Bideford-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Bideford.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Bideford property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Bideford 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 Bideford purchasers.
Bideford estate agents have many local industry connections. They may be able to recommend a good local solicitor, mortgage broker, insurance broker or financial adviser in Bideford.
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. Bideford 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 Bideford estate agent.

Dogs and cats in your garden areas. - If you are marketing your property in Bideford then you may want to check your garden for mess left behind by your own pets or yourneighbour's pets. If your garden looks like it is being used for a toilet, then this can make an extremely bad impression . Clean up after your own cat or dog, and think about installing anti-dog or cat measures to scare away and deter neighbour's cats and dogs. Always double check that these countermeasures are not harmful to the animals.
Sort out your lighting. - A bad lighting scheme can very much undersell your Bideford property. Consider sorting your lighting out. Consult a specialist if you need to. Dark rooms can look small and poky. Rooms that are too bright can look harsh and unwelcoming. Very bright light will show up all marks, dirt, stains and dust.
Tidy The Garden - Perhaps you are not much of a gardener, your lawn is un-cut and the whole place is looking rather messy! Well it’s time to get busy. A badly presented garden may well be off-putting to Bideford buyers. Cut the lawn, trim the edges and remove as much junk and clutters as you can. A few plastic pots filled with colourful flowers could really change the appeal of your property.
Modernise dated fittings. - It's arguable that some folk love "dated". The majority don't. If your house is looking more 80s than "now" you may want to consider zapping the worst offenders. Nasty wallpaper can be covered with a lick of paint, cupboard doors and tiles can also be painted over, and door handles are easily replaced. Bideford property hunters will mainly prefer a "blank canvas" to a scheme that sticks out as being dated.

Food For Thought
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 Bideford 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 Bideford 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.
Don't Overvalue Your House
Overvaluing a home is a recognized trick that certain Bideford property agents will employ in order to impress you to guarantee your listing instruction. Therefore, do not fall into the snare of just choosing the Bideford property agent with the premier valuation as an expensive house will have a tendency to attract the unsuitable kind of buyers to your Bideford property and the suited buyers may never get to visit it. This practice can result in the house lingering static on the Bideford housing market. This can also lead to the home having to be afterwards reduced falling beneath its actual marketplace value. The issue of obtaining a correct valuation is therefore paramount to the selling process. It is critical that you appoint a Bideford estate agent who not only has a track record of winning sales in Bideford but also has a exhaustive working familiarity of current purchaser activity and who can decipher and communicate predominant market trends to your gain.
