Why use a Plympton Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Plympton 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.
Some estate agents in Plympton will offer to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. They will big-up the property to viewers, drawing attention to all of the best features. Most viewers are increasingly prone to tell an agent, than the property owner, what they don’t like about a property. The result of this is that if you employ the services of a Plympton agent, you are far more likely to get honest feedback about what aspects of your property need changine to get a fast sale, at the best achievable price.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Plympton 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.
In The Know
A good Plympton 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.
Because we're all very proud of our houses
People viewing a property can often be a brutal bunch, marching around the house like royalty, making unkind comments and making discontented facial expressions. Even the best of houses are sometimes in for a bashing, simply for the reason that one person's preference is some other person's dislike. For this reason it is perhaps for the better if you let a Plympton property agent show viewers around your home - and leave them to filter back to you any worthwhile feedback. No one likes to have their house disrespected by strangers.

Sort out your lighting. - A bad lighting scheme can very much undersell your Plympton 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.
Scrub Up - Don’t be scared to get out your favourite cleaning products and really get stuck into those tired areas of your property. The ’nearly new’ look of kitchen units, appliances and bathroom furniture will really go down well with Plympton buyers.
Make some coffee - Most people love the smell of brewing coffee, even if they don't like to drink it. Consider putting on some fresh coffee just before a viewing, it's sure to create a welcoming odour for those Plympton viewers!
Open Some Windows - Consider opening some windows for a couple of hours before a viewing. If it's a hot stuffy day, the leave them open, if it's cold then close them. In either case, this should help to give the property a nice fresh feeling when sellers come to view.

Food For Thought
Agents Fees Explained
Many property sellers are not aware of the disparate commission rates that Plympton agents will charge to sell your property. It is a known fact that not all Plympton estate agencies charge identical rates and there's a good reason for this - so don't make your choice of agent on price alone. A number of Plympton agents could quote standard rates but looking at your house, could arrive at the conclusion that the property may be more difficult to market than their typical houses because it is in a bad area or bad state of repair warranting increased marketing costs and sales effort. on the other hand, other estate agents may quote a smaller than normal rate if they conclude that they can move your property without much effort and quickly. Some Plympton estate agents simply do not suffer with the running costs of bigger agencies who have made high levels of investment in high street offices, high quality training for staff, sophisticated computer systems and professional marketing collateral and resources. That is not to imply that low cost commission charges will manifest in poor customer service and professionalism because one can on occasion experience inadequacies when dealing with bigger chain firms too. Cut price Plympton estate agents usually need a higher turnover of properties to survive and are as a result far less prone to be concerned about achieving the best value for their clients. The net amount of the after sale money in your bank account is surely of greater importance than the percentage fee your Plympton estate agent has invoiced you in commission costs.
Don't Overvalue Your Property
Overvaluing a property is a recognized tactic that certain Plympton estate agents will employ in order to make an impression you to get your listing order. Therefore, do not fall into the snare of just choosing the Plympton property agent with the premier valuation as an high-priced home will be inclined to interest the inappropriate kind of buyers to your Plympton home and the desirable buyers may never get to visit it. This practice can result in the home remaining stationary on the Plympton housing marketplace. This can also lead to the house having to be afterwards reduced falling less than its real market value. The issue of obtaining a correct valuation is therefore principal to the selling process. It is vital that you settle on a Plympton estate agent who not only has a track record of successful sales in Plympton but also has a comprehensive working knowledge of current consumer activity and who can understand and communicate current market trends to your benefit.
