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.
Because we're all proud of our houses
People viewing a property can often be a brutal bunch, stalking around the house like celebreties, making rude opinions and pulling discontented faces. Even perhaps the nicest homes are sometimes in for rough treatement, just because one person's preference is another person's dislike. For this reason it is perhaps for the better to let a Kirkcaldy property agent show viewers around your property - and leave them to filter back any worthwhile feedback. No one likes to have their house criticized by visitors.
In The Know
A good Kirkcaldy estate agent will already have a shortlist of potential buyers (applicants) on their books, who may immediately want to view your property. This could result in a quick sale.
A good Kirkcaldy 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 Kirkcaldy property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Normally an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Kirkcaldy 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.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Kirkcaldy property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Kirkcaldy 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 Kirkcaldy purchasers.

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.
Find a good conveyancing solicitor for Kirkcaldy conveyancing - If you're selling or buying property in Kirkcaldy then you're going to need a good solicitor to do your conveyancing. The solicitor doesn't need to be local to Kirkcaldy to do your conveyancing. In-fact, you'll get a much better deal by using a solicitor that is geared up to deal with large volumes, rather than using someone local. Kirkcaldy conveyancing doesn't need to cost the earth!
Sort out your lighting. - A bad lighting scheme can very much undersell your Kirkcaldy property. Consider sorting your lighting out. Consult a specialist if you need to. Dark rooms can look small and poky. Rooms that are too bright can look harsh and unwelcoming. Very bright light will show up all marks, dirt, stains and dust.
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 Kirkcaldy property buyers.

Food For Thought
It is wise to Use A Web-Based Estate Agency?
Perhaps you have noticed that there is an ever increasing number of Web based agents appearing. These are basically agents that don't have a shop front and preferentially leverage the WWW to showcase their property portfolio. These property agencies can frequently heavily undercut local estate agencies. But there are a few very important things to be careful of ... Does the agent place adverts in your paper? Does the agent upload your home onto Rightmove? Do they offer managed viewings? Should these things not be of consequence to you, then carry on and save a load of cash!
Agents Rates of Commission Explained
Most sellers are unaware of the disparate rates of commission that Kirkcaldy agents will charge to sell your property. It is a known fact that not all Kirkcaldy estate agencies charge the same rates and there's a good reason why - so don't make your choice of agent based on just the price. Some Kirkcaldy estate agents could quote you their standard rates but upon appraising your property, may decide that the property may be more difficult to market than their typical properties because it is in high crime area or in a poor state of repair meaning more marketing costs and effort. Conversely, some agents may quote a lower than normal rate if they conclude that they can sell your property easily and quickly. Some Kirkcaldy estate agents simply do not have the running costs of bigger firms who have invested heavily in high street offices, high quality training for staff, sophisticated database systems and professional marketing materials and resources. That's not to say that cut-price commission rates will manifest in poor customer service and professional standards because one can at times experience inadequacies when dealing with bigger chain firms too. low price Kirkcaldy agents typically need a bigger turnover of stock to survive and are as a result less likely to show concern with regards to securing the best value for their customers. The net total of the post-sale money in your bank account is surely more important than the commission your Kirkcaldy agent has charged you in commission charges.
