Here are some points to consider when deciding whether to find an estate agent to help you market and sell or let your property.
In The Know
A good Callander 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.
The Right Value

Callander estate agents have experience at marketing property
Callander property sales agents are experts at marketing properties. Not every person is born a salesman - and the business of getting a sale is usually best left to the experts. Your estate agent will have the knowledge to take flattering protographs of your property, how to devise an appealing description of it and the best place to market that information to attract the most interest.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Callander area will give your agent the edge when trying to find a buyer for your property. They will know the location of local amenities, the local schools, which areas are well thought of and the pricing and sales trends. They will also be able to advise you of the best price that can be achieved in the area if various improvements are made to a property, and how much to reduce by to get a fast sale.

Clean out the attic - get rid of all the junk. - Some buyers will ask to take a peek in the loft . If the attic is cluttered full of junk that has the appearance that it may not be removed then this may well be deterring. Additionally, a attractive empty loft-space will look like it may have conversion potential.
Apply Pressure To Your Estate Agency - Don't place too much reliance on your estate agent to make a sufficient effort when drawing up the marketing particulars and creating your window promotion card. Ensure that you read very carefully what they have produced and don't be shy to demand that they work on alterations to these materials if you decide that they haven't been diligent enough. Check for good spelling and errors of grammar. Make Certain that all of the particulars are accurate.
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 Callander property buyers.
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 normally 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 normally houses a powerful vacuum for a very thorough clean.

Food For Thought
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.
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.
