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.
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. Swaffham 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 Swaffham estate agent.
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.
Swaffham agents are specialists at marketing
Swaffham property sales agents are experts at marketing houses. Not everyone is cut out as a sales man or woman - and the work of selling is typically best left to the experts. Your property agent should know how to take flattering pictures of your house, how to write up a good description of it and the best locations to market those details to get the most enquiries.

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 Swaffham viewers. Consider calling in a local Swaffham cleaning specialist to revive carpets.
Apply Pressure To The Property Agent - It is unwise to depend on your estate agency to put the required effort into drafting the marketing particulars and creating the window display card. You should always scrutinise what they have produced and do not be afraid to demand that they work on changes to these materials if you feel that they haven't been diligent enough. Check spelling and grammatical errors. Make Certain that all of the particulars are not misleading.
Modernise dated fittings. - It's arguable that some folk love "dated". The majority don't. If your house is looking more 80s than "now" you may want to consider zapping the worst offenders. Nasty wallpaper can be covered with a lick of paint, cupboard doors and tiles can also be painted over, and door handles are easily replaced. Swaffham property hunters will mainly prefer a "blank canvas" to a scheme that sticks out as being dated.
Neutralise Nasty Odours - If you're trying to sell your Swaffham property, then perhaps it's time to ask a good friend the question "does my house smell". If you live with unpleasant odours, then you may no longer notice them. Get the blunt opinion of a friend. If there's a problem, don't worry... there are plenty of products on the market to remove nasty smells, rather than cover them up.

Food For Thought
Could it be better to use a local Swaffham solicitor?
Usually, this can prove to be a much more costly option. If it is your determination that you need to go into an office to directly speak with them, then it is far better to pay the additional costs to use a locally based property solicitor. Don't forget, more and more cases these days are handled remotely as customers take advantage of competitive fees. Even more folks now engage a solicitor by means of the Internet than those who have received a recommendation from a friend.
Look for an Enthusiastic Agent
If a Swaffham estate agent unenthusiastic regarding 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 great import if shoppers are to be inspired to buy it. The estate agent of your choice must therefore show a positive attitude towards the selling potential of your home on every occasion.
