Why use a Stirling Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Stirling 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.
Good Local Knowledge
An estate agent or letting agent in Stirling is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.
Stirling estate agents have many local industry connections. They may be able to recommend a good local solicitor, mortgage broker, insurance broker or financial adviser in Stirling.
The Right Value
A Stirling-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Stirling.
Because we're all very proud of our homes
Property viewers may well be a brutal bunch, stalking all over the house like royalty, offering unkind assessments and pulling discontented faces. Even the best decorated homes are in for a bashing, just because the first's preference is another person's dislike. For this reason it's perhaps best if you let a Stirling property agent show property viewers about your home - and leave them to filter back to you any noteworthy comments. Nobody likes to have their house picked on by strangers.

Clean your windows - You should be able to clean your ground-floor windows, frames and sills easily - and a professional window-cleaner won't be expensive to get the upper floor windows done too. To make the best possible impression get your windows cleaned to a shine. Make sure your window ledges are tidy and that curtains and blinds are neatly arranged. If you have net curtains, consider giving them a clean (or your actual curtains if they're looking grubby).
Be fussy over photographs. - Your agent (or yourself - if you elect to engage the FSBO method) will be required to create photographs of both the interior and exterior of your house. This is a requirement to have it listed in an attention grabbing way on the Internet, and in property particulars. Ensure that each picture really advertises the house or living area to the best possible extent. Additionally, make sure that the angle and lighting creates a flattering and desirable image. Get shot of as much clutter and junk as you are able to before photographing a room or garden area - excess ornamentation will make your property to appear less roomy and unattractive. Don't take images with you, pets or stains in them!
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 Stirling viewers. Consider calling in a local Stirling cleaning specialist to revive carpets.
Animals in the gardens. - If you are selling your house in Stirling then you would be wise to inspect your lawn for mess left behind by your dogs and cats or yourneighbour's pets. When your garden smells like it's used as a litter tray, then this can surely make a very bad impression . Don't forget to pick up after your own cat or dog, and think about installing anti-dog or cat measures to scare away and put-off neighbour's pets. Always double check that such counter-measures are not harmful to the animals.

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 Stirling 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 Stirling 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.
Find a Keen Estate Agent
If a Stirling property agent is not enthusiastic about your property, then you would be unwise to give your business to that agent. Conveying an enthusiastic attitude of mind to achieving a sale of your house is essential if potential buyers are to be persuaded into buying it. Your chosen estate agent must show a positive attitude towards the selling power of your property on every occasion.
