Should I use a Manchester solicitor for my conveyancing?

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.
Although you may be confident that you're more than capable of managing the sale of your own property, the truth of the matter is that many of us have precious little spare time. Manchester applicants will not appreciate having to arrange viewings around your schedule. In all likelihood you will achieve a faster sale if you use a good Manchester estate agent.
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. Normally 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 give the option to do accompanied viewings on your behalf. They will show-off the property to viewers, highlighting the best features. Some viewers are increasingly prone to tell an agent, than the owner, what they hate about a house. The outcome is that if you employ a Manchester agent, you are likely to receive honest feedback on what details of your house need dressing up to get a fast sale, and at the highest achievable price.
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.

Do something about your energy Efficiency - If you're marketing your home for sale then Manchester purchasers are likely to be hunting for energy efficient homes, as these homes should be cheaper to run, and simpler to re-sell at a later date. A knowledgeable Manchester property agency should be equipped to give you advice and direct you to the right resources for upgrading your house to be improved so as to be energy saving. It is a requirement that an energy efficiency assessor will visit and assess your home for a current and achievable Energy Efficiency Rating and an existing and potential Environmental (CO2) Impact Rating. This certification is necessary prior to marketing your property.
Rent Some Storage - If your house is very cluttered, then you may want to consider renting a storage unit in Manchester. Removing large, unnecessary articles of furniture and other clutter will give the appearance of larger rooms. Viewers like to see a reasonably blank canvas, that they can really imagine making their own. The disadvantages are the weekly costs of storage, and the double-handling of the furniture, that you will now have to move twice.
Will selling a property in Manchester need a Manchester conveyancing solicitor? - Will selling a property in Manchester need Manchester conveyancing solicitor? This is an excellent question. Many people in Manchester may mistakenly think that they need a Manchester solicitor to do their conveyancing. The reality is this, that your conveyancing solicitor does not need to be local. Some Manchester solicitors choose only to deal with Manchester 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.
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.

Food For Thought
Too many estate agents are experts at only communicating favourable news, which is very easy to do. A good estate agent will make every effort at frequent contact with their clients and will not be short in letting you know if any matter need addressing to increase the chances of achieving an expedient sale transaction. Ensure that the estate agent you choose to represent you in the Manchester area is good at communicating.
Any property agent in Manchester can boast of a large number of prospective property buyers on their books but it is your responsibility to establish what actions are taken to qualify those buyers as suitable persons to view your property and proceed to purchase your property. Many viewers may register an interest in your home but a well trained property agent will pick out the applicants who have a real requirement to buy and will as a consequence be showing serious interest in looking at your property.
