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.
Because we are all very proud of our homes
Property viewers may well be an insensitive bunch, marching all over the house like royalty, making unkind comments and pulling discontented facial expressions. Even perhaps the best of homes are sometimes in for criticism, simply for the reason that the first's preference is another person's non-preference. So it is perhaps best to let a Bideford property agent show property viewers around your home - and leave them to filter back any noteworthy critisizm. Nobody enjoys having their house disrespected by strangers.
Bideford Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People
It takes a special kind of person to be a good sales person. It takes charisma, a winsome manner, good character, and perhaps even good looks. These are sometimes things that some of us find in short supply. Hopefully your Bideford real estate agent will be in possession the attributes of a top sales person, and win the sale for you faster and at a better price than you could manage on your own!
A good estate agent in Bideford will be able to advise you on how to best present your property to potential purchasers.

Cats and dogs in the garden areas. - If you are marketing house in Bideford then you should perhaps examine your garden for nasty mess left behind by your own pets or yourneighbour's pets. If your garden looks like it's used for a sandbox, then this can make a bad impression . Do not neglect to pick up after your own pets, and think about using anti-dog or cat countermeasures to scare away and deter neighbour's cats and dogs. Please make sure such measures are not harmful to the animals.
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.
Do Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Bideford? If so, you may want to take a good, objective look around. How many small, simple jobs are there that you haven't bothered getting around to doing? The problem is that we become blind to the small flaws after a while (apart from the ones that annoy us), whereas an observant newcomer to your home will spot them straight away. We're talking about curling wall-paper, or borders just need sticking down; Marks on walls, that need wiping off; Dead flies or dust on a lamp-shade; Dirty windows; Old screw-holes in walls that need filling and touching up. Now is the time to put a day aside to do these little jobs, and help achieve the best price for you property.
Be Realistic With Respect To The Market - Just like many markets in the UK, the housing marketplace in Bideford has seen better days. You must be sensible about the true asking price of your property if you desire a fast sale. This may be difficult, especially so if you over-stretched yourself on your loan when you originally purchased your house. Think about seeking advice about your circumstances with your Independent Financial Adviser, and your estate agent to agree a realistic market valuation for your home.

Food For Thought
Estate Agents Commission Rates Disambiguated
The vast majority of vendors are not aware of the differing commission rates that Bideford estate agents will charge for the sale of your home. It is a known fact that not all Bideford estate agencies charge the same fees and there's a very good reason for this - so do not make your decision based on price alone. A number of Bideford agents could quote you their standard rates but evaluating the house, may determine that the property may be more troublesome to market than their typical houses because it is in a bad area or in a poor state of repair warranting more marketing costs and sales effort. Conversely, some estate agents could quote a smaller than normal rate if they conclude that they can move your property easily and with great speed. Some Bideford estate agents do not have the overheads of larger agencies who have invested heavily in high street branches, top-level staff training, complex database software and professional marketing collateral and resources. That's not to say that low cost commission rates will deliver low quality customer service and professionalism because you can sometimes experience inadequacies when dealing with larger chain firms too. Cut price Bideford estate agents usually need a larger turnover of properties to survive and they are as a result less prone to show concern with regards to securing the best price for their clients. The net amount of the post-sale money in your bank account is surely more important than the percentage fee your Bideford estate agent has charged in commission fees.
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.
