Shop around for a proactive Kirkcaldy estate agent - If you're putting your Kirkcaldy property on the market - then it's important to shop around before choosing your Kirkcaldy estate agent. The Internet affords the luxury of being able to read genuine customer feedback and reviews. For each agent in Kirkcaldy take the time to search the Internet and get a feel for what other clients are saying about them. You're looking for consistently good feedback. This should give you the confidence that they're going to do a good job for you, and get your property sold. If you come across bad feedback, then take the time to look at how old it is. Have been people been saying nicer things more recently? After all, if an agency had bad feedback in the past - and has improved, they could still be the best choice for you.
Be Energy Efficient - If you're placing your home on the market then Kirkcaldy purchasers will be searching for homes with energy efficiency, as these houses are likely to be cheaper to keep, and faster to sell at a later date. A clever Kirkcaldy estate agency should be able to give you advice on this matter and direct you to the right resources for upgrading your home to be increasingly energy saving. The selling process now requires that an energy assessment professional will visit and assess your property for a current and potential Energy Efficiency Score and an existing and potential Environmental (CO2) Impact Score. This certificate is needed prior to taking your property to the market.
Have Realistic Expectations With Respect To The Market - Like a lot of markets in the United Kingdom, the property market in Kirkcaldy has been better. You must be real about the actual market value of your home if you're wanting a quick sale. This may be hard work, especially so if you overstretched on your property loan when you originally purchased your home. Consider discussing your circumstances with your Financial Adviser, and with your property agent to come to an agreement of a suitable asking price for your house.
Gloss Work - Tired looking Gloss Work (such as doors, door frames and skirting boards) can make a property look shabby. Try to bring it all back to a shine with a damp cloth.

Food For Thought
Your Lawyer's Work: deal with your new bank or building society
Something your conveyancer will do for you: Communicate with your new bank, updating them should there be any problems with the title deeds of your Kirkcaldy property, or with any of the unique conditions they stipulated in the mortgage offer.
Variances in Legal Fees - Why do fees jump around between different solicitors?
Why is there is so much of a variance in the legal fees when it involves buying and the sale of houses? It's a good question, and I am sure you're contemplating if it has anything to do with the service you can expect? Oddly, the answer is normally NOT AT ALL. The usual rule is : you only get what you pay for. This isn't always the case with conveyancing. It really does depend on the size of the solicitor's operation. There are solicitors who only deal with property related matters, and on a massive design. They are highly experienced and pass down large price benefits to their customers.
