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.
Because Modbury estate agents have experience at marketing property
Modbury property sales agents are good at marketing properties. Not everyone is born a sales man or woman - and the work of selling is typically something an expert should do. Your property agent will know how to take appealing protographs of your property, the methods required to write up a good description of it and the best locations to market that information to get the most interest.
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. Modbury 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 Modbury estate agent.

Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Modbury 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.
Stay On Top Of Your Estate Agent - Don't depend on your estate agency to work too hard when drafting the sales particulars and populating your window promotion card. You should always scrutinise what they have produced and don't be afraid to request that they work on changes to these items if you think that they haven't made enough of an effort. Check spelling and grammar. Ensure that all of the descriptions are accurate.
Pay For A Deep Clean - If a girl was going out on a important date, there's a reasonable chance she's either spend a lot of time at home getting ready, or even go to a Modbury beauty salon. If you're trying to sell a Modbury property then don't treat it any different! Consider getting in a deep-cleaning service. Prices, and level of service will vary, so look around! They will steam clean carpets, curtains and upholstery. They will get rid of all of the dirt that you may not even notice. Your oven will look like new! Hopefully the overall freshness and odour of your property will improve. This should really help with your sale!
Make your home energy Efficient - If you're placing your home on the market then Modbury buyers are likely to be hunting for energy efficient properties, as these houses are likely to be less expensive to keep, and simpler to re-sell at a later date. A knowledgeable Modbury estate agency will be able to give you advice on this matter and direct you to the right resources for upgrading your property to be more energy saving. The selling process now requires that an energy efficiency assessment professional will visit and assess your home for its current and achievable Energy Efficiency Rating and an existing and potential Environmental (CO2) Impact Rating. This certificate is needed before to taking your property to the market.

Food For Thought
When will I have to pay money out?
As a seller, you will have to pay for a Home Information Pack before marketing can begin. Once you have secured a sale, your Modbury solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. The balance of the money from the sale will come to you on the day of completion. The solicitor will take their fee out at this stage, as will the Modbury Estate Agent. As a buyer, your solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. On Exchange of Contracts, you will be asked by your solicitor to provide 5% or 10% of the purchase price. On the day of completion, your mortgage money will come in to your solicitor who will pass it on to the seller.
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 typically takes place around noon but could be as late as 5pm.
