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.

Use An Expert

If you desire to have a go at a complex task then it's typically prudent to either find expert advice, or to hunt down an expert to do the work on your behalf. Selling or buying homes in Colchester is not an exception to this rule. Some property purchases or sales can prove to be very trouble-free, but many others are not. If a difficult item pops up during the process, then you will be glad of the guidance and expert knowledge of your property agent.

Good Local Knowledge

An estate agent or letting agent in Colchester is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.

Quality Marketing

A good Colchester 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 Colchester property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Usually an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Colchester 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.

Colchester agents are specialists at marketing

Colchester property sales agents are experienced at marketing properties. Not everyone is born to be a salesman - and the work of getting a sale is usually something an expert should do. Your estate agent should have the knowledge to take flattering protographs of your property, how to write up an appealing description of it and the best outlets to market that information to attract the greatest amount of enquiries.

Selling Tips

Molehills And Ants NestsMolehills And Ants Nests - If your garden suffers from Mole Hills or ants nests, then take appropriate action to eliminate these pests (humanely, of course). These garden pests could be off-putting to Colchester property buyers.

Do you have dirty carpets?Do you have dirty carpets? - If you have dirty carpets in your Colchester 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 usually 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 usually houses a powerful vacuum for a very thorough clean.

Go PottyGo Potty - It is said that first impressions last. If you property will allow for it, why not invest in some fragrant, colorful and attractive potted flowers or plants from a Colchester garden center. These will help to make you property look cheerful and attractive on first impressions.

Animals in your garden areas.Cats and dogs in the gardens. - If you're selling your home in Colchester then you may want to examine your lawns for unpleasant mess left behind by your own pets or yourneighbour's dogs or cats. If your garden looks like it's used as a sandbox, then this will surely make a very bad impression . Clean up after your own cat or dog, and consider installing anti-dog or cat measures to scare away and deter neighbour's cats and dogs. Always make sure these measures are not cruel.

Food For Thought

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 usually takes place around noon but could be as late as 5pm.
Is it better to use a locally based Colchester conveyancer?
generally speaking, this could prove to be a far more costly choice. If you are inclined to think that you must go into the solicitor's premises and talk a case through, then it is far better to pay the additional costs to use a local solicitor. Don't forget, more and more cases these days are being dealt with at a distance as purchasers and sellers take advantage of competitive legal prices. More people now employ a solicitor via the Internet than those who have been recommended a solicitor by a family member.

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

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
