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.
Colchester Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People
It takes a special kind of person to be a good sales person. It requires character, charisma, a certain manner, and in some cases the right looks. These are sometimes attributes that many of us find in short supply. Hopefully your Colchester real estate agent will be in possession the criteria of a good sales person, and win the sale faster for you and at a better price than you could manage on your own!
A good estate agent in Colchester will be able to advise you on how to best present your property to potential purchasers.
The Right Value
A Colchester-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Colchester.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Colchester property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Colchester estate agent will be able to guide you towards a price that strikes the right balance between being attractive to both you and any potential Colchester purchasers.

Scrub Up - Don’t be afraid to get out your favourite cleaning products and really get stuck into those tired areas of your property. The ’nearly new’ look of kitchen units, appliances and bathroom furniture will really go down well with Colchester buyers.
Clean your windows - If your windows or mirrors are looking grubby, consider mixing some white spirit vinegar with a little water and washing up liquid, popping the mixture in a spray-bottle and giving your windows and mirrors a clean. (use this cleaning tip at your own peril!). The washing liquid will act as a de-greaser and the vinegar will act as an anti-foamer / streaker. Grubby windows or mirrors will create a bad impression on Colchester property buyers.
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 normally 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 normally houses a powerful vacuum for a very thorough clean.
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
Differences in Legal Fees - Why do prices move around between different solicitors?
Why is it that there is so much of a difference in the legal charges when it pertains to buying and selling property? It's a very good question, and I'm sure that you're pondering if it has something to do with the quality of service? You will be surprised, but the answer is typically NOT AT ALL. The usual rule is this: you only get out what you put in. Not in this case. It's all to do with economies of scale. There are solicitors firms that only work with property related cases, and on a very large scale. They specialise and are highly experienced and efficient and pass on large price reductions to their customers.
The WWW and Estate Agent's Web Sites
The World Wide Web is an invaluable tool in the world of property and a good agent will be an expert in utilising the right hi-tech to make sure that your home is put on show to the widest audience. A professional Colchester agent will be marketing your property on all of the best property portals. The potential for persons, who are not necessarily registered as an interested buyer with your agent, to indicate an interest in your property will be greatly increased if your selected property agency is IT-savvy. Critically evaluate the estate agents' own website and ask yourself if it is good enough for property buyers to desire to carry out a property search on it. Satisfy yourself that the search facility works well and that the search results are well displayed. Ask are the detailed descriptions attractive and are all associated images of decent viewable quality?
Most importantly, is the site speed fast enough? A slow performing, badly designed and awkward to navigate Internet site where the webpages and images take a long time to download will challenge the patience of the most intrepid of site visitors who will be anxious to abandon the website to never return.
