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.
Although you may be confident that you're more than capable of managing the sale of your own property, the truth of the matter is that many of us have precious little spare time. Colchester applicants will not appreciate having to arrange viewings around your schedule. In all likelihood you will achieve a faster sale if you use a good Colchester estate agent.
Colchester estate agents are specialists at marketing
Colchester estate agents are good at marketing properties. Not everyone is cut out to be a sales man or woman - and the work of making a sale is usually something an expert should do. Your estate agent should know the trick to take appealing protographs of your property, the methods required to write up an appealing write-up of it and the best place to market those details to get the greatest amount of interest.
Use An Expert
If you want to do something complicated then it is typically prudent to get advice from an expert, or to get an expert to do the work for you. purchasing or making the sale of property in Colchester is not an exception to this rule. A percentage of property sales can prove to be very straightforward, but many others are not. Should a difficult item pops up during the process, then you will be glad of the advice and expert knowledge of your estate agent.
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.

Get Painting - Consider some fresh paint. There’s a good reason why new builds in Colchester are typically 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 totally love, may not be to Colchester buyer’s liking!
Clean your windows - You should be able to clean your ground-floor windows, frames and sills easily - and a professional window-cleaner won't be expensive to get the upper floor windows done too. To make the best possible impression get your windows cleaned to a shine. Make sure your window ledges are tidy and that curtains and blinds are neatly arranged. If you have net curtains, consider giving them a clean (or your actual curtains if they're looking grubby).
Renew Scruffy Flooring - Linoleum flooring in bathrooms and kitchens can often look very scruffy after years of use. It is inexpensive to replace. Consider renewing it if it looks worse for wear.
Open Some Windows - Consider opening some windows for a couple of hours before a viewing. If it's a hot stuffy day, the leave them open, if it's cold then close them. In either case, this should help to give the property a nice fresh feeling when sellers come to view.

Food For Thought
When will I have to pay money out?
As a seller, you will have to pay for a Home Information Pack before marketing can begin. Once you have secured a sale, your Colchester solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. The balance of the money from the sale will come to you on the day of completion. The solicitor will take their fee out at this stage, as will the Colchester Estate Agent. As a buyer, your solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. On Exchange of Contracts, you will be asked by your solicitor to provide 5% or 10% of the purchase price. On the day of completion, your mortgage money will come in to your solicitor who will pass it on to the seller.
Sales Particulars and Window Displays
A lot of property agents in Colchester use conventional window display cards as an element of their shop front advertising showcase to promote their housing stock. One of their standard services is that a set of particulars showcasing your house, to include a number of pictures, will also be prepared by them . You should always ensure that the window card, descriptive brochure and all other associated news-sheet collateral are to your desired standards. If you determine that your estate agent has not adequately shown-off your property or neglected to include something which you think is a feature or sale winner then tell them about it and make certain that they amend it for you.
