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.
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 queries you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.
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.
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.
Because we're all proud of our houses
Those desiring to view your home may well be an unkind group, stalking around the house like royalty, offering unplesant opinions and making unhappy facial expressions. Even the most well kept houses are sometimes in for a bashing, simply for the reason that one person's like is another person's non-preference. For this reason it is perhaps best if you let a Colchester estate agent show viewers around your house - and leave them to filter back any useful feedback. No one likes to have their home criticized by strangers.

Rent Some Storage - If your house is very cluttered, then you may want to consider renting a storage unit in Colchester. Removing large, unnecessary articles of furniture and other clutter will give the appearance of bigger rooms. Viewers like to see a reasonably blank canvas, that they can really imagine making their own. The disadvantages are the weekly costs of storage, and the double-handling of the furniture, that you will now have to move twice.
Renew Scruffy Flooring - Linoleum flooring in bathrooms and kitchens can often look very bedraggled after years of use. It is inexpensive to replace. Consider renewing it if it looks worse for wear.
Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Colchester 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.
Spend Up To 1% - It is often advised that a seller should consider spending up to 1% of the sale value of the property on re-decoration, D.I.Y. and / or touching-up to achieve the best price. You should discuss this with a local Colchester specialist adviser or Colchester estate agent. A good Colchester estate agent may be able to point you in the right direction.

Food For Thought
Check Out Your Estate Agent's Website
When you are conducting research into Colchester property agents it is definitely worthwhile having a good look at each one's website. Here are some prudent questions to ask : How easy is the estate agent’s website to find in internet search query? Is it well presented in a professional and modern manner? Is it informative? Can you search the property stock easily? Are the property particulars written in a clear and informative style, to a good standard of English? An agent’s website can tell you a lot about the quality of service you can expect if you decide to use them.
When choosing a sales agent it could be of advantage to choose a sales agent who also manages properties for rent. Property Rental agencies have long-term purchase-for-rental property investors indefinitely registered in their database. These investment buyers purchase regularly from that agent. They know that estate agent very well and they are prone to make quick decisions and make reliable offers to purchase. It is the preference of these investment buyers to buy via that agency because it is simpler for them to let out their new property quickly after purchasing it. Tenants also register to purchase property. Good rental agencies strive to build solid relationships with their rental clients and are in a good position to help them buy one of their own selling clients’ properties.
