Why use a Clacton-On-Sea Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Clacton-On-Sea 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.
Clacton-On-Sea Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People
It requires a particular personality to be a good sales person. It requires charisma, a winsome manner, good character, and perhaps even attractive looks. These are sometimes attributes that many of us find in short supply. Hopefully your local Clacton-On-Sea estate agent will posses the criteria of a good sales man or woman, and win the sale faster for you and at a better price than you could manage on your own!
The property buying and selling process is a complex one and can be very daunting, especially for first time sellers. Your estate agent will be able to guide you through the process of selling your home - and explain all of the steps. Some estate agents even have an Independent Financial Adviser in-branch who can help you with any financial questions you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.
Seek Out Sound Advice
A Clacton-On-Sea estate agent is qualified to be able to give an answer to any questions you might have in relation to the buying or sales processes.
Some agents in Clacton-On-Sea will offer to do accompanied viewings on your behalf. The agent will show off your house to those viewing it, drawing attention to all of the best attributes. Some viewers are increasingly likely to tell an estate agent, than the property owner, what they find unattractive about a house. This means that if you employ a Clacton-On-Sea estate agent, you are far more likely to receive honest information about what details of your house need fixing up to get a fast sale, at the highest achievable price.

Keep Pressurising The Property Agent - It is unwise to rely on the agency to make a sufficient effort when drawing up the marketing particulars and creating the window promotion details. Ensure that you read very carefully what they've drafted and don't be shy to request that they make alterations to these items if you think that they haven't worked hard enough. Look for bad spelling and grammar. Ensure that all of the particulars are not misleading.
Pets in the gardens. - If you are selling your home in Clacton-On-Sea then you would be wise to inspect your lawns for unpleasant mess left behind by either your pets or yourneighbour's pets. Should your garden look like it is used for a toilet, then this will surely make a very bad impression on viewers. Always clean up after your own cat or dog, and think about installing anti dog or cat measures to frighten away and put-off your neighbour's cats and dogs. Always ensure such devices are humane.
Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Clacton-On-Sea property on the market, then you may want to consider getting your garden fences painted / repaired.
Privacy is an important issue for many house buyers, and a tidy, secure, well-maintained boundary with neighbouring properties will be a big plus, rather than "another job that will need doing".
In the same manner, ensure that hedges and trees are trimmed and tidy.
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 Clacton-On-Sea 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.

Food For Thought
Estate Agents Rates of Commission Explained
Many sellers are not aware of the disparate rates of commission that Clacton-On-Sea agents will charge for selling your property. It is a well established fact that not all Clacton-On-Sea estate agencies charge the same fees and there is a very good reason why - so don't make your selection of agency based on price alone. Some Clacton-On-Sea estate agents may quote standard charges but evaluating the house, could arrive at the conclusion that the property is more difficult to sell than their usual houses because it's in an undesirable area or bad state of repair warranting more marketing costs and effort. Conversely, some agents could quote a smaller than usual rate if they think that they can move your house without much effort and with great speed. Some Clacton-On-Sea estate agents do not suffer with the overheads of bigger firms who have made high levels of investment in town centre offices, high quality training for staff, sophisticated computer software and professional marketing materials and resources. That is not to imply that cut-price commission rates will manifest in poor customer service and professionalism because you can sometimes experience inadequacies when employing bigger firms too. low price Clacton-On-Sea estate agents usually require a higher turnover of properties in order to survive and are therefore less likely to be concerned about securing the best price for their customers. The net amount of the post-sale proceeds in your bank account is surely more important than the commission your Clacton-On-Sea estate agent has invoiced you in commission fees.
Find an Enthusiastic Agent
If a Clacton-On-Sea estate agent is not enthusiastic regarding your house, then you would be foolish to instruct them. Showing a positive attitude to achieving a sale of your house is critical if shoppers are to be attracted into buying it. Your agent must consequently be optimistic about the selling power of your home every day.
