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.
Because we are all very proud of our houses
People viewing a property can often be an unkind group, stalking all over the house like royalty, offering rude assessments and pulling unhappy facial expressions. Even the best decorated homes are sometimes in for criticism, just for the reason that one person's preference is another person's dislike. So it is perhaps best to let a Plympton property agent take viewers around your house - and leave them to filter back any worthwhile feedback. Nobody enjoys having their home disrespected by visitors.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Some estate agents in Plympton will give the option to do accompanied viewings on your behalf. The agent will show off your property to viewers, highlighting all of the best attributes. Some viewers are more likely to tell an estate agent, than the owner, what they don’t like about a property. The outcome is that if you employ a Plympton agent, you are likely to get honest information about what aspects of your house need fixing to get a quick sale, at the best achievable value.
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.
If you desire to do something complicated then it is typically prudent to find expert advice, or to hunt down an expert to complete the task on your behalf. Selling or buying homes in Plympton is not an exception to the rule. A significant number of property sales can turn our to be easy, but many others are quite the opposite. Should a difficulty pops up as part of the process, then you will be glad of the advice and expert knowledge of your property agent.

Clear out the loft - dump all the clutter. - Some viewers will ask to take a look in the attic . If the loft is stuffed full of junk that has the appearance that it could well be left there then this can be very off putting. Additionally, a clear empty loft-space will look like it could have loft-conversion potential.
Do Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Plympton? If so, you may want to take a good, objective look around. How many small, simple jobs are there that you haven't bothered getting around to doing? The problem is that we become blind to the small flaws after a while (apart from the ones that annoy us), whereas an observant newcomer to your home will spot them straight away. We're talking about curling wall-paper, or borders just need sticking down; Marks on walls, that need wiping off; Dead flies or dust on a lamp-shade; Dirty windows; Old screw-holes in walls that need filling and touching up.

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 Plympton 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 Plympton 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.
How much time does the whole legal procedure take ?
This is perhaps one of our most regularly made enquiries and regrettably, there is no straight answer because it is dependant on so many factors. The most straightforward kind of property sale is the one of an empty property to a purchaser paying with cash. This kind of transaction would probably take about 6 weeks to complete (from instruction with a solicitor to when the property legally becomes the new owner's property). If the purchaser is in need of a loan, this may well add a few weeks to the time-frame. In the case where the seller is also purchasing a property, this could add another few weeks and maybe even more time if there is a wider chain of connected sales. Further time delays could come about because of missing documentation, slow Plympton solicitors and slow buyers and sellers. An average completion time is about ten to fourteen weeks.
