Why use a Modbury Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Modbury 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 Modbury 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.
Because Modbury agents are specialists at marketing
Modbury house sale agents are experienced at marketing houses. Not everyone is born to be a salesman - and the business of making a sale is often a job for an expert. Your estate agent will have the knowledge to take flattering pictures of your property, how to devise an appealing write-up of it and the best outlets to market those details to get the greatest amount of enquiries.
Good Local Knowledge
An estate agent or letting agent in Modbury is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of 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.

Will selling a property in Modbury need a Modbury conveyancing solicitor? - Will selling a property in Modbury need Modbury conveyancing solicitor? This is an excellent question. Many people in Modbury may mistakenly think that they need a Modbury solicitor to do their conveyancing. The reality is this, that your conveyancing solicitor does not need to be local. Some Modbury solicitors choose only to deal with Modbury 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.
Pet Problems - If you own pets, then consider re-housing them while your try to sell your home. At the very least, keep them out of sight during viewings, and make sure that you have removed as much trace of them as possible. Cat litter trays, bowls of pet food, pet hairs, stains on carpets and scratched up walls or furniture can be off-putting. There is also the issue of allergies to consider. Many people are allergic to pet hairs and dust. A home that sets off a reaction may put off otherwise keen Modbury viewers. Consider calling in a local Modbury cleaning specialist to revive carpets.
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 Modbury property buyers.
Neutralise Nasty Odours - If you're trying to sell your Modbury 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.

Food For Thought
Hand-outs and Window Display Cards
No small number of agents in Modbury use typical window posters as part of their shop front advertising display to publicise their houses. It is part of their service that property particulars advertising your property, including some pictures, will also be created by them on your behalf. You should always ensure that the window poster, sales brochure and any newspaper collateral are to your satisfaction. If you feel that your estate agent has not properly described your house or has failed to underline something that you regard as a bonus or sale winner then let them know and ensure that changes are made.
How much time will the whole legal procedure take ?
This is perhaps one of our most regularly asked questions and sadly, there is no easy answer as it depends on so many factors. The most straightforward kind of house sale is the one of an empty property to a cash buyer. This kind of transaction would likely take about six weeks to complete (from the time of instruction with a solicitor to when the property becomes the new owner's property). If the purchaser requires a mortgage, this could add a few weeks to the time-frame. If the purchaser is also buying a property, this could add another few weeks and perhaps even more delay if there is an extended chain of connected sales. Even more hold-ups could result because of missing paperwork, lethargic Modbury conveyancers and slow buyers and sellers. An average completion timeframe is roughly ten to fourteen weeks.
