Should I use a Colchester solicitor for my conveyancing?

Why use a Colchester Estate Agent?


There is a recent trend of Colchester 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.

Well Connected

Colchester 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 Colchester.

Agent Accompanied Viewings

Many agents in Colchester will offer to do accompanied viewings on your behalf. The agent will big-up your property to those viewing it, drawing attention to all of the most attractive attributes. Most viewers are more likely to tell an estate agent, than the owner, what they find unattractive about a house. The outcome is that if you use a Colchester estate agent, you are far more likely to get honest feedback about what aspects of your property need fixing to get a faster sale, and at the best achievable price.

Colchester 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 in some cases attractive looks. These are sometimes attributes that some of us find in short supply. With any luck your local Colchester real estate agent will posses the criteria of a good sales man or woman, and close a sale faster for you and at a better price than you could achieve if you tried to sell your own property!

In The Know

A good Colchester 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.

Selling Tips

Make some coffeeMake some coffee - Most people love the smell of brewing coffee, even if they don't like to drink it. Consider putting on some fresh coffee just before a viewing, it's sure to create a welcoming odour for those Colchester viewers!

Get PaintingGet Painting - Consider some fresh paint. There’s a good reason why new builds in Colchester are usually presented in magnolia and white. The light colours make rooms look bigger and cleaner. White paint, in particular, makes kitchens and bathrooms look spick and span. Remember, that dark purple that you painted your bedroom in, that you completely love, may not be to Colchester buyer’s liking!

ConveyancingConveyancing - When you are buying or selling Colchester property, then one expense that is difficult to avoid is the legal cost. It really isn't a good idea to cut out the solicitor, as conveyancing is a complex process, and there are many pitfalls. The good news is this: There is no good reason to use a local solicitor - and AgentQuote.co.uk can help to find you a quality national solicitor who will do the work for a much cheaper price.

Shop around for a proactive Colchester estate agentShop around for a proactive Colchester estate agent - If you're putting your Colchester property on the market - then it's important to shop around before choosing your Colchester estate agent. The Internet affords the luxury of being able to read genuine customer feedback and reviews. For each agent in Colchester take the time to search the Internet and get a feel for what other clients are saying about them. You're looking for consistently good feedback. This should give you the confidence that they're going to do a good job for you, and get your property sold. If you come across bad feedback, then take the time to look at how old it is. Have been people been saying nicer things more recently? After all, if an agency had bad feedback in the past - and has improved, they could still be the best choice for you.

Food For Thought

Agents Commission Rates Disambiguated
Most property sellers are not aware of the differing commission rates that Colchester agents will charge to sell your property. It is a well established fact that not all Colchester agencies charge the same rates of commission and there's a good reason for this - so do not make your choice of agent on price alone. A number of Colchester estate agents may quote you standard charges but upon appraising the house, may conclude that the property may be more troublesome to market than their typical houses because it's in high crime area or in a poor state of repair warranting more marketing costs and sales effort. on the other hand, some agents may quote a lower than usual commission if they conclude that they can move your property without much effort and quickly. Some Colchester agents simply do not suffer with the running costs of bigger firms who have made high levels of investment in high street offices, high quality training for staff, complex computer systems and top-of-the-range marketing materials and resources. That's not to imply that cut-price commission charges will deliver poor customer service and professionalism because one can at times experience inadequacies when dealing with bigger chain firms too. Cut price Colchester agents typically require a bigger turnover of stock to trade profitably and are therefore far less prone to show concern with regards to achieving the best value for their clients. The final amount of the after sale money in your pocket is surely of greater importance than the percentage fee your Colchester agent has invoiced you in commission fees.
When should I book my removals?
Only make a firm booking when contracts have been exchanged. Only at this point will you be certain of the day of the move.

Customer Reviews & Comments

Ashworth Law (Legal Development Partners t/as)

All queries were responded to quickly and efficiently. I would recommend this firm.. Mortgage Broker, CO3. Rating: rating: 5 stars November, 2013

Beaumont Legal

Daniel at Beaumont Legal on the whole managed my case fine. Communication was poor at times and I didn't feel like there was a lot of advice or guidance forthcoming. However, the quality of the information pack and the fee level mean that overall they were decent value for money.. Client, CO7. Rating: rating: 5 stars September, 2013

The Legal House

Ross Coates Solicitors

Josie Quinn was absolutely fantastic she never once hurried me off the phone even when I was probably waffling. She showed a personal intrest in our case, was very proffesionall at all times and quick to sort any discrepancies. She helped make what could have been a very stressful move into something quite enjoyable. I also liked the way I didnt have to wade my way through receptionists to speak to her. Unlike some other organizations were they say hang on a mo whilst I check if their free. she and her colleagues at the kesgrave branch made me feel like nothing was to much trouble , well done girls! Just a little note one unamed representative at the Ipswich branch could learn alot from the staff at kesgrave. As my experience with her was far from good bordering on dam right rude. Could do with a training session in dealing with the public sensitively!. Client, CO7. Rating: rating: 5 stars April, 2011
