Why use a Callander Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Callander 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 proud of our homes
Those desiring to view your home can often be an insensitive group, marching all over the house like royalty, offering rude comments and making unhappy faces. Even perhaps the nicest homes are sometimes in for criticism, simply for the reason that the first's like is another person's non-preference. For this reason it's perhaps best to let a Callander estate agent take property viewers around your home - and leave it to them to feed back to you any noteworthy critisizm. No one enjoys having their home picked on by strangers.
A good Callander 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 Callander property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Typically an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Callander 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.

Do you have dirty carpets? - If you have dirty carpets in your Callander property then it could really put off potential buyers and reduce your selling price. It's well worth calling in a local carpet cleaning firm to give them a good cleaning. They typically come to your home with a van and very long hoses and thoroughly steam and/or water clean your carpets - giving them a new lease of life. The van typically houses a powerful vacuum for a very thorough clean.
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 Callander 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.
Neutralise Nasty Odours - If you're trying to sell your Callander property, then perhaps it's time to ask a good friend the question "does my house smell". If you live with unpleasant odours, then you may no longer notice them. Get the blunt opinion of a friend. If there's a problem, don't worry... there are plenty of products on the market to remove nasty smells, rather than cover them up.
Clean your windows - You should be able to clean your ground-floor windows, frames and sills easily - and a professional window-cleaner won't be expensive to get the upper floor windows done too. To make the best possible impression get your windows cleaned to a shine. Make sure your window ledges are tidy and that curtains and blinds are neatly arranged. If you have net curtains, consider giving them a clean (or your actual curtains if they're looking grubby).

Food For Thought
The UK Credit Crunch Hits The Housing Market Hard
The credit crunch has caused a large fall in UK house prices. Residential property values have fallen significantly since summer 2008, when they peaked. They fell at their fastest rate for twenty five years. They have however now started a slow recovery. This remains a good time for a first time buyer to consider a purchase, but a worry for owners with negative equity.
What does "Completion" mean?
This is when the buyer becomes the legal owner of the property and can move in. As early as possible on the agreed day, the buyer's solicitor will send the balance of the purchase money to the seller's solicitor. The seller's solicitor will notify the estate agent and the seller when the transaction is complete. Only then should the keys be released to the purchaser. This typically takes place around noon but could be as late as 5pm.
