Why use a Ivybridge Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Ivybridge 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.
Seek Out Good Advice
A Ivybridge estate agent is well equipped to be able to answer any questions or queries that you might have in relation to the purchase or selling process.
Ivybridge Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People
It requires a particular personality to be a good sales person. It requires charisma, a winsome manner, good character, and in some cases the right looks. These are simply attributes that many of us find in short supply. With any luck your local Ivybridge real estate agent will be in possession the criteria of a top sales person, and win a sale for you faster and at a superior price than you could achieve if you tried to sell your own property!
A good Ivybridge estate agent will be an expert at marketing your property. They will know how to advertise your property in all the right places. Ideally your Ivybridge property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Typically an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Ivybridge property post. Other forms of marketing include window cards, handouts, mail-shots and open-house days. Remember, the frequency and quality of the content of the advertising is just as important as where it appears.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Most estate agents in Ivybridge may offer to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. They will show-off the house to viewers, drawing attention to all of the most attractive features. Most viewers are more likely to tell an estate agent, than the home owner, what they don’t like about a property. The outcome is that if you employ a Ivybridge estate agent, you are likely to get honest feedback on what details of your property need fixing to get a fast sale, at the best price.

Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Ivybridge 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.
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 Ivybridge property buyers.
Do Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Ivybridge? If so, you may want to take a good, objective look around. How many small, simple jobs are there that you haven't bothered getting around to doing? The problem is that we become blind to the small flaws after a while (apart from the ones that annoy us), whereas an observant newcomer to your home will spot them straight away. We're talking about curling wall-paper, or borders just need sticking down; Marks on walls, that need wiping off; Dead flies or dust on a lamp-shade; Dirty windows; Old screw-holes in walls that need filling and touching up. Now is the time to put a day aside to do these little jobs, and help achieve the best price for you property.
Apply Pressure To The Estate Agency - It is perhaps foolish to depend on your estate agency to work too hard when drafting the marketing hand-out and populating your window promotion card. Always scrutinise what they've drafted and do not be reticent to demand that they work on alterations to these items if you decide that they haven't put the required effort into this work. Check spelling and errors of grammar. Ensure that all of the descriptions are correct.

Food For Thought
What does "Exchange of Contracts" mean?
This is when the contract becomes binding between buyer and seller. Up until this moment, the buyer is free to withdraw from the purchase, for any reason, without penalty. Exchange takes place over the telephone between the solicitors of the buyer and seller. Clients are not present at this time. A Completion date is set at this time. This is set in stone and cannot be changed.
Agents Charge Rates Disambiguated
The vast majority of sellers are not aware of the different commission rates that Ivybridge agents will charge to sell your property. It is a known fact that not all Ivybridge agencies charge the same fees and there's a very good reason for this - so don't make your choice of agent on just the price. Some Ivybridge agents could quote their standard charges but looking at your property, could conclude that the property is more troublesome to sell than their typical properties because it is in a bad area or in a poor state of repair warranting more marketing costs and sales effort. Conversely, some estate agents may quote a lower than usual rate if they think that they can move your property easily and quickly. Some Ivybridge agents do not suffer with the running costs of larger firms who have made high levels of investment in town centre branches, top-level staff training, sophisticated database systems and professional marketing collateral and resources. That's not to say that cut-price commission charges will manifest in low quality customer service and professionalism because one can at times experience inadequacies when dealing with bigger chain firms too. low price Ivybridge agents typically require a higher turnover of properties in order to trade profitably and are as a consequence far less prone to be concerned about securing the best value for their clients. The final amount of the post-sale money in your bank account is surely more important than the commission your Ivybridge estate agent has charged you in commission fees.
