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.

For Guidance

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.

Selling Tips

Rent Some StorageRent 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 FlooringRenew 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 FencesRepair / 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%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.
Lettings
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.

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
