Why use a Seaton Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Seaton 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're all very proud of our homes
People viewing a property can often be an insensitive group, marching all over the house like celebreties, offering rude assessments and making discontented facial expressions. Even perhaps the most well kept homes are in for a bashing, simply because the first's preference is some other person's dislike. For this reason it is perhaps best to let a Seaton property agent show property viewers about your home - and leave it to them to feed back any noteworthy critisizm. No one likes to have their home disrespected by strangers.
In The Know
A good Seaton 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.
Good Local Knowledge
An estate agent or letting agent in Seaton is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.
Some estate agents in Seaton may offer to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. The agent will show off the house to viewers, underlining the best features. Most viewers are increasingly likely to tell an estate agent, than the property owner, what they don’t like about a property. The result of this is that if you use a Seaton agent, you are far more likely to get honest information about what aspects of your property need fixing to get a faster sale, and at the best achievable value.

Get Painting - Consider some fresh paint. There’s a good reason why new builds in Seaton are typically presented in magnolia and white. The light colours make rooms look bigger and cleaner. White paint, in particular, makes kitchens and bathrooms look spick and span. Remember, that dark purple that you painted your bedroom in, that you completely love, may not be to Seaton buyer’s liking!
Sort out your lighting. - A bad lighting scheme can very much undersell your Seaton 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.
Do you have dirty carpets? - If you have dirty carpets in your Seaton property then it could really put off potential buyers and reduce your selling price. It's well worth calling in a local carpet cleaning firm to give them a good cleaning. They typically come to your home with a van and very long hoses and thoroughly steam and/or water clean your carpets - giving them a new lease of life. The van typically houses a powerful vacuum for a very thorough clean.
Will selling a property in Seaton need a Seaton conveyancing solicitor? - Will selling a property in Seaton need Seaton conveyancing solicitor? This is an excellent question. Many people in Seaton may mistakenly think that they need a Seaton solicitor to do their conveyancing. The reality is this, that your conveyancing solicitor does not need to be local. Some Seaton solicitors choose only to deal with Seaton 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.

Food For Thought
Not All Property Agents Are Equal
Not all estate agents are Equal. When you are selecting a Seaton property agent to sell your home it is worth asking many questions. How much will they charge? Are viewings attended? Are they friendly? What do their property brochures and window cards appear like? What are the elective additional services that you may have to pay for to have? How regularly will your home appear in the local paper? What is their property hunter's book looking like? Are they dressed for business? These are all questions well worth asking of your agent before giving them your business. Don't forget, you are looking for the best offering of sales services for the most reasonable commission charge.
Estate Agents Fees Explained
Many property sellers are not aware of the disparate rates of commission that Seaton agents will charge for selling your property. It is a known fact that not all Seaton estate agencies charge the same rates and there is a very good reason for this - so do not make your decision on just the price. Some Seaton agents could quote you standard prices but looking at the house, could arrive at the conclusion that the property may be more troublesome to market than their typical houses because it is in a bad area or in a poor state of repair warranting more marketing costs and effort. on the other hand, some estate agents could quote a lower than normal commission if they conclude that they can move your house easily and with great speed. A number of Seaton estate agents simply do not have the running costs of larger agencies who have made high levels of investment in high street offices, high quality training for staff, complex database systems and professional marketing collateral and resources. That's not to imply that low cost commission charges will deliver poor customer service and professionalism because one can on occasion experience inadequacies when dealing with bigger firms too. low price Seaton agents typically need a larger turnover of stock in order to trade profitably and they are as a consequence far less likely to show concern with regards to achieving the best value for their clients. The final amount of the post-sale proceeds in your bank account is surely of greater importance than the commission your Seaton agent has charged you in commission charges.
