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.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Kirkcaldy area will give your agent the edge when trying to find a buyer for your property. They will know the location of local amenities, the local schools, which areas are well thought of and the pricing and sales trends. They will also be able to advise you of the best price that can be achieved in the area if various improvements are made to a property, and how much to reduce by to get a fast sale.
If you want to have a go at a complex task then it's prudent to either seek advice from an expert, or to find an expert to complete the work on your behalf. buying or selling homes in Kirkcaldy is no exception to the rule. A percentage of property sales or purchases can prove to be extremely easy, but others are quite the opposite. Should a problematic issue crops up during the process, then you will be glad of the sound guidance and expertise of your agent.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Some agents in Kirkcaldy may offer to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. They will show off the property to viewers, underlining the best features. Most viewers are more likely to tell an estate agent, than the property owner, what they dislike about a house. The outcome is that if you employ the services of a Kirkcaldy estate agent, you are likely to get honest information about what aspects of your property need fixing up to achieve a quick sale, and at the highest price.
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.

Make some coffee - Most people love the smell of brewing coffee, even if they don't like to drink it. Consider putting on some fresh coffee just before a viewing, it's sure to create a welcoming odour for those Kirkcaldy viewers!
Neutralise Nasty Odours - If you're trying to sell your Kirkcaldy property, then perhaps it's time to ask a good friend the question "does my house smell". If you live with unpleasant odours, then you may no longer notice them. Get the blunt opinion of a friend. If there's a problem, don't worry... there are plenty of products on the market to remove nasty smells, rather than cover them up.
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.
Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Kirkcaldy 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.

Food For Thought
Agents Rates of Commission Disambiguated
Many vendors are not aware of the different commission rates that Kirkcaldy agents will charge for selling your property. It is a known fact that not all Kirkcaldy agencies charge identical rates and there is a very good reason why - so do not make your decision based on price alone. A number of Kirkcaldy agents may quote standard rates but upon appraising your property, may decide that the property is more difficult to market than their typical properties because it's in an undesirable area or in a poor state of repair meaning increased marketing costs and sales effort. on the other hand, other estate agents may quote a lower than usual rate if they conclude that they can move your property easily and with great speed. A number of Kirkcaldy agents may not suffer with the overheads of larger firms who have made high levels of investment in high street branches, top-level training for staff, complex computer systems and top-of-the-range marketing collateral and resources. That is not to imply that low cost commission charges will deliver low quality customer service and professionalism because one can at times experience inadequacies when employing bigger firms too. low price Kirkcaldy estate agents typically need a higher turnover of stock in order to survive and they are as a consequence less prone to be concerned with regards to securing the best value for their customers. The final total of the post-sale proceeds in your bank account is surely of greater importance than the percentage fee your Kirkcaldy agent has charged you in commission charges.
Not All Property Agencies Are Identical
Not all agencies are the same. When you are selecting a Kirkcaldy agency to sell your property it is prudent to ask many things. What are the fees? Do they do viewings on your behalf? Are they well presented? What do their brochures and window cards appear like? What are the optional extras that you may have to pay for to have? How regularly will your home appear in the local newspaper? What is their property hunter's database shaping up like? Do they make you feel confident? All of these questions well worth firing at your agent prior to employing them. Don't forget, you are hunting for the widest offering of sales services for the lowest cost.
