Why use a Wakefield Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Wakefield 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 Wakefield 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 Wakefield 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 Wakefield 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're all very proud of our houses
Property viewers can often be an unkind bunch, marching around the house like celebreties, offering rude opinions and making discontented facial expressions. Even perhaps the most well kept homes are in for criticism, just because the first's preference is some other person's dislike. For this reason it's perhaps best to let a Wakefield estate agent show property viewers about your home - and leave them to feed back to you any worthwhile feedback. Nobody enjoys having their house picked on by strangers.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Some estate agents in Wakefield may offer to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. They will show off your property to viewers, underlining all of the most attractive attributes. Some viewers are more prone to tell an agent, than the owner, what they find unattractive about a house. The outcome is that if you use a Wakefield agent, you are likely to receive honest feedback on what aspects of your house need fixing up to get a fast sale, and at the best achievable price.
In The Know
A good Wakefield 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.

Tidy The Garden - Perhaps you are not much of a gardener, your lawn is un-cut and the whole place is looking rather messy! Well it’s time to get busy. A badly presented garden may well be off-putting to Wakefield buyers. Cut the lawn, trim the edges and remove as much junk and clutters as you can. A few plastic pots filled with colourful flowers could really change the appeal of your property.
Renew Scruffy Flooring - Linoleum flooring in bathrooms and kitchens can often look very scruffy after years of use. It is inexpensive to replace. Consider renewing it if it looks worse for wear.
Clear the attic - get rid of all the clutter. - Some viewers will ask to take a peek in your attic space. If the loft is crammed to the brim with junk that has the appearance that it may not be removed then this can be off-putting. Also, a nice empty loft will look like it could have the potential to be converted.
Do you have dirty carpets? - If you have dirty carpets in your Wakefield 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.

Food For Thought
Credit Crunch Bites Hard
The credit crunch has decimated UK house prices. House values have fallen drastically since summer 2008, when they were at their peak. They fell at their rapidest rate for at least 25 years. They have now started a slow recovery. This remains a good time for first time buyers to consider a purchase, but worrying for owners who over-stretched their mortgage.
When should I book my removals?
Only make a firm booking when contracts have been exchanged. Only at this point will you be certain of the day of the move.
