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.
A good Stirling estate agent will be an expert at marketing your property. They will know how to advertise your property in all the right places. Ideally your Stirling property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Typically an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Stirling property post. Other forms of marketing include window cards, handouts, mail-shots and open-house days. Remember, the frequency and quality of the content of the advertising is just as important as where it appears.
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. Stirling 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 Stirling estate agent.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Stirling 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.

Marketing Your Home Through an Estate Agent - Even though you may have thought you'd selected the best estate agent in the town of Stirling, they may have become complacent by relying on their reputation. Always satisfy yourself that they are doing the best job for YOU. Never mind their other clients - it's your home that needs the effort behind it to market and sell it as effectively as possible.
Do you have dirty carpets? - If you have dirty carpets in your Stirling 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 normally 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 normally houses a powerful vacuum for a very thorough clean.
Sort out your lighting. - A bad lighting scheme can very much undersell your Stirling 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.
Tidy Up - Make sure that rooms are clean and tidy, especially bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen.

Food For Thought
Property Portals, what is the difference?
It has been of great interest to see the emergence of so many property portals. The WWW is less than 30 years old, and property portals are even younger. A few winners have surfaced from the multitude of websites that offer very similar services. Specifically: Zoopla and Rightmove. The main reason for the popularity of these particular portals is the T.V. advertisements that they make investments in, thus enabling them to reach a sizable demographic in the United Kingdom. These property portals are really the best because they are the sites who attract the largest number of estate agents to advertise property on them - and consequently have the the greatest quantity of UK homes all in the same database. As for which one is the best? Well that is your choice - the consumer. Each site has a different appearance, a different zing and unique features - but both fundamentally offer the same end result - assist you to search for local houses that match your preferred options, and to view the detailed descriptions, images and novelties of that home.
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 usually takes place around noon but could be as late as 5pm.
