Why use a Kirkcaldy Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Kirkcaldy 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.
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 questions you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.
You local Kirkcaldy Estate Agents will always be available, by telephone or email, to deal with enquiries about your property. If you try to DIY your house sale then you are likely to miss may opportunities because you are unlikely to be available to field enquiries.

A Kirkcaldy property agent is qualified to be able to give an answer to any questions that you may have about the buying or selling process.
Because we're all proud of our houses
Property viewers may well be an insensitive bunch, stalking all over the house like celebreties, making unkind assessments and making unhappy facial expressions. Even the best decorated homes are sometimes in for criticism, just for the reason that one person's preference is another person's dislike. For this reason it's perhaps best if you let a Kirkcaldy property agent take property viewers about your property - and leave them to filter back any worthwhile critisizm. No one likes to have their home disrespected by visitors.

De-Clutter - It’s your home in Kirkcaldy, you’ve lived there for years, it feels like part of you, and you love it. But if you’re selling, then it’s time to move out mentally! Try to pack away as much personal clutter as you can. Leave a few, favourite items out so that the house doesn’t feel like a Kirkcaldy hotel, but otherwise present your viewers with a blank canvas, somewhere that they can imagine making their own.
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).
Keep Pressurising Your Estate Agent - Don't place too much reliance on your estate agent to work too hard when drafting the sales brochure and creating your window promotion poster. Make sure you scrutinise what they've created and do not be reticent to demand that they work on alterations to these items if it is your determination that they simply have not been diligent enough. Check for good spelling and grammar. Make sure that all of the details are accurate.
Will selling a property in Kirkcaldy need a Kirkcaldy conveyancing solicitor? - Will selling a property in Kirkcaldy need Kirkcaldy conveyancing solicitor? This is an excellent question. Many people in Kirkcaldy may mistakenly think that they need a Kirkcaldy solicitor to do their conveyancing. The reality is this, that your conveyancing solicitor does not need to be local. Some Kirkcaldy solicitors choose only to deal with Kirkcaldy property transactions, or other properties very nearby. Other conveyancers will choose to handle transactions from all over the UK. Their quality of service will in no way be less than a local solicitor. It may well be better, as they specialize in conveyancing. It is also likely that their prices will be more competitive.

Food For Thought
It is important to know the extent of service an estate agent in Kirkcaldy will provide to you in respect of viewings to suit your requirements and convenience.
Some estate agents in Kirkcaldy do not include accompanied viewings in their service so it’s important to establish whether an estate agent will accompany all viewings and what arrangements they make for evenings and weekends.
Apart from the obvious security issues associated with an unaccompanied viewing, it is only when agents accompany buyers around a property that they can they probe, listen and understand what the buyer is really looking for. Estate agents who have developed a good understanding of their buyers’ preferences are less likely to direct unsuitable viewers to your property.
Agents Fees Explained
The vast majority of sellers are unaware of the differing commission rates that Kirkcaldy estate agents will charge to sell your property. It is a well established fact that not all Kirkcaldy estate agencies charge the same fees and there's a very good reason for this - so do not make your choice of agent on price alone. A number of Kirkcaldy agents could quote you their standard rates but after visiting the house, may conclude that the property may be more troublesome to market than their typical houses because it is in high crime area or in a poor state of repair meaning more marketing costs and effort. on the other hand, some estate agents could quote a lower than usual rate if they conclude that they can sell your house easily and with great speed. A number of Kirkcaldy estate agents simply do not suffer with the running costs of larger firms who have made high levels of investment in high street offices, top-level training for staff, sophisticated database systems and professional marketing materials and resources. That's not to imply that cut-price commission rates will deliver low quality customer service and professional standards because one can on occasion experience inadequate service when employing larger chain firms too. low price Kirkcaldy estate agents usually require a larger turnover of properties to trade profitably and they are as a result far less prone to show concern about achieving the best price for their clients. The net amount of the post-sale money in your bank account is surely more important than the commission your Kirkcaldy estate agent has charged you in commission charges.
