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.

Years Of Experience

Years of experience in the Colchester 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.

Because we are all proud of our houses

Property viewers can often be an insensitive group, marching all over the house like royalty, making rude opinions and making unhappy facial expressions. Even perhaps the nicest homes are in for criticism, simply because the first's preference is some other person's dislike. So it is perhaps for the better if you let a Colchester property agent show property viewers about your property - and leave them to filter back any useful comments. No one likes to have their home criticized by strangers.

Accompanied Viewings

Many estate agents in Colchester may offer to do accompanied viewings on your behalf. They will show-off the property to viewers, underlining the best attributes. Most viewers are more likely to tell an estate agent, than the home owner, what they don’t like about a house. This means that if you employ the services of a Colchester agent, you are likely to receive honest feedback on what aspects of your house need changine to achieve a faster sale, at the highest value.

Achieve The Best Price for your House

Experienced Estate agents in Colchester understand the Colchester property marketplace, and will assist you with achieving the best sale price for your home.

Selling Tips

Be choosy about pictures.Be particular about photographs. - Your property agency (or you - should you elect to engage the for sale by owner model) will be required to get photos of the inside and outside of your house. This is a requirement to get it listed in an attention grabbing way on the World Wide Web, and in property brochures. Make certain every photograph really promotes the house or living area to the best extent. Additionally, make sure that the angle and light source produces a flattering and attractive image. Remove as much clutter as you can before taking photos of a room or exterior aspect - junk will cause your house to appear smaller and messy. Don't take photos with people, pets or stains in them!

Weed the gardenWeed the garden - One of the first things a potential buyer will see when they arrive at your property is the garden. If the garden is ragged then it will be a bad start, and make the wrong first impression. Pick up litter, cut the lawn and pull / kill any weeds that are growing in or around the path or patio areas. Consider hiring a pressure washer to clean up your path if it's looking really grubby.

Sort out your lighting.Sort out your lighting. - A bad lighting scheme can very much undersell your Colchester property. Consider sorting your lighting out. Consult a specialist if you need to. Dark rooms can look small and poky. Rooms that are too bright can look harsh and unwelcoming. Very bright light will show up all marks, dirt, stains and dust.

Modernise dated fittings.Modernise dated fittings. - It's arguable that some folk love "dated". The majority don't. If your house is looking more 80s than "now" you may want to consider zapping the worst offenders. Nasty wallpaper can be covered with a lick of paint, cupboard doors and tiles can also be painted over, and door handles are easily replaced. Colchester property hunters will mainly prefer a "blank canvas" to a scheme that sticks out as being dated.

Food For Thought

Agents Fees Explained
The vast majority of property sellers are unaware of the different commission rates that Colchester estate agents will charge for selling your property. It is a known fact that not all Colchester estate agencies charge identical rates of commission and there's a good reason for this - so don't make your decision on price alone. A number of Colchester estate agents may quote you standard rates but upon appraising your property, may determine that the property may be more troublesome to market than their usual properties because it is in an undesirable area or in a poor state of repair meaning increased marketing costs and effort. on the other hand, some estate agents could quote a lower than normal rate if they think that they can move your property without much effort and with great speed. A number of Colchester agents simply do not suffer with the running costs of bigger agencies who have invested heavily in town centre offices, top-level training for staff, sophisticated computer systems and professional marketing collateral and resources. That is not to imply that low cost commission rates will manifest in cut-down customer service and professional standards because you can at times experience inadequate service when employing bigger chain firms too. Cut price Colchester estate agents typically require a bigger turnover of properties to survive and they are as a result far less prone to show concern with regards to securing the best value for their customers. The final amount of the post-sale proceeds in your pocket is surely more important than the commission your Colchester estate agent has invoiced in commission fees.
Differences in Legal Fees - Why do prices jump around between different solicitors?
Why is it that there is so much of a difference in solicitors fees when it involves buying and the sale of houses? This is a very a important question, and I am certain that you're wondering whether it has something to do with quality? You will be surprised, but the answer is for the most part NOT AT ALL. The rule is : you only get out what you put in. This is not the case in this circumstance. Large scale operations bring cost savings. There are solicitors firms who only deal with property related cases, and on a very large design. They specialise and are very much experienced and pass down large price reductions to their customers.

Customer Reviews & Comments

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

fwdlaw associates

They were efficient, reliable and we will use them again when we decide to put our house back on the market.. Client, CO5. Rating: rating: 5 stars January, 2011
