Why use a Swaffham Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Swaffham 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.
A good Swaffham 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 Swaffham property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Usually an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Swaffham 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.
Because we are all proud of our homes
Those desiring to view your home may well be a brutal bunch, marching all over the house like celebreties, offering unplesant assessments and making unhappy faces. Even the best of houses are sometimes in for criticism, simply because the first's like is another person's dislike. For this reason it's perhaps best if you let a Swaffham estate agent take property viewers around your home - and leave it to them to feed back any noteworthy feedback. No one enjoys having their home criticized by strangers.
The property buying and selling process is a complex one and can be very daunting, especially for first time sellers. Your estate agent will be able to guide you through the process of selling your home - and explain all of the steps. Some estate agents even have an Independent Financial Adviser in-branch who can help you with any financial questions you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.

Be fussy over pictures. - Your agent (or yourself - should you elect to use the FSBO model) will be required to get photos of both the interior and outside of the property. This is a requirement to get it listed in an attention grabbing manner on the Internet, and in property particulars. Ensure that every photo really shows off the property or living area to the very best possible extent. Also ensure that the aspect and light source creates a cheerful and attractive image. Hide as much junk as you can before taking photos of a room or garden area - excess ornamentation will make your rooms look less roomy and messy. Do not take photos with you, pets or stains in them!
Shop around for a proactive Swaffham estate agent - If you're putting your Swaffham property on the market - then it's important to shop around before choosing your Swaffham estate agent. The Internet affords the luxury of being able to read genuine customer feedback and reviews. For each agent in Swaffham take the time to search the Internet and get a feel for what other clients are saying about them. You're looking for consistently good feedback. This should give you the confidence that they're going to do a good job for you, and get your property sold. If you come across bad feedback, then take the time to look at how old it is. Have been people been saying nicer things more recently? After all, if an agency had bad feedback in the past - and has improved, they could still be the best choice for you.
Do Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Swaffham? 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. Now is the time to put a day aside to do these little jobs, and help achieve the best price for you property.
Sort out your lighting. - A bad lighting scheme can very much undersell your Swaffham 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.

Food For Thought
Buy And Refurbish In A Risky Market
I question how many individuals got trapped seriously in the downturn in the marketplace, when they bought a home at what looked like a give-away value, spent thousands of pounds doing it up, in the futile aspiration of selling it on at a profit. A lot, I'm convinced! The question is... is there ,even now cash to be made? How can the chance be minimized? When you see a prospective house, go fetch a Swaffham property agent, or more than one, and pick up an professional estimation. How much is the home genuinely worth now? What would its value be if it was made up to a lovely condition? Get in a builder who is used to subbing out the numerous aspects of the renovation trade, and pick up a realistic quote for the repair job. Now calculate your possible proceeds, and calculate how gravely the market would have to to downward spiral to wipe out that profit, and land you in debt. Now you should have a satisfactory measurement of the risk. Don't forget... it's straightforward to start going over financial plan on the renovation. Make allowances for this! These are just a few suggestions... not advice! Good luck!
It is important to know the extent of service an estate agent in Swaffham will provide to you in respect of viewings to suit your requirements and convenience.
Some estate agents in Swaffham do not include accompanied viewings in their service so it’s important to establish whether an estate agent will accompany all viewings and what arrangements they make for evenings and weekends.
Apart from the obvious security issues associated with an unaccompanied viewing, it is only when agents accompany buyers around a property that they can they probe, listen and understand what the buyer is really looking for. Estate agents who have developed a good understanding of their buyers’ preferences are less likely to direct unsuitable viewers to your property.
