Should I use a Manchester solicitor for my conveyancing?
There's no real need to use a solicitor located in Manchester to do your conveyancing. Your whole case can be managed efficiently by post, email and telephone.
Why use a Manchester Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Manchester 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 Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Manchester property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Manchester 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 Manchester purchasers.
A good Manchester 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 Manchester property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Usually an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Manchester 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
Many estate agents in Manchester may offer to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. They will big-up the property to those viewing it, underlining the best attributes. Some viewers are more likely to tell an estate agent, than the home owner, what they find unattractive about a property. The outcome is that if you employ the services of a Manchester agent, you are likely to receive honest information on what aspects of your house need fixing up to get a quick sale, at the best achievable price.
Find Good Advice
A Manchester property 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.

Have Realistic Expectations About The Current Market - As with many markets in Great Britain, the housing market in Manchester has been stronger. You must be real about the actual market asking price of your property if you want a fast sale. Finding a buyer might be difficult, especially if you over-stretched yourself on your property loan when you bought your house. Consider discussing your circumstances with your Financial Adviser, and with your agent to agree a suitable valuation for your home.
Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Manchester 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.
Conveyancing - When you are buying or selling Manchester property, then one expense that is difficult to avoid is the legal cost. It really isn't a good idea to cut out the solicitor, as conveyancing is a complex process, and there are many pitfalls. The good news is this: There is no good reason to use a local solicitor - and AgentQuote.co.uk can help to find you a quality national solicitor who will do the work for a much cheaper price.
Clean the attic - remove all the clutter. - Some buyers will want to take a peek in the loft space. If the attic is full of clutter that has the appearance that it may not be removed then this will be very off-putting. In addition, a nice empty attic-space will look like it could have loft-conversion potential.

Food For Thought
Could it be better to use a locally based Manchester solicitor?
In general, this will prove to be a significantly more expensive choice. If you are inclined to think that you must be able to go into the solicitor's place of business and speak with them, then it is probably better to pay the additional costs for the privilege of using a local property solicitor. Remember, an ever increasing amount of conveyancing transactions nowadays are being handled remotely as purchasers and sellers take advantage of competitive fees. Even more people now employ a property solicitor via the Internet than those who have received a recommendation from a friend.
What does "Completion" mean?
This is when the buyer becomes the legal owner of the property and can move in. As early as possible on the agreed day, the buyer's solicitor will send the balance of the purchase money to the seller's solicitor. The seller's solicitor will notify the estate agent and the seller when the transaction is complete. Only then should the keys be released to the purchaser. This normally takes place around noon but could be as late as 5pm.
