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.
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 queries you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.
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.
Wakefield agents have experience at marketing
Wakefield estate agents are good at marketing properties. Not everyone is born to be a sales man or woman - and the business of selling is often best left to the experts. Your estate agent will know the trick to take appealing pictures of your house, how to write up a good description of it and the best outlets to market that information to get the greatest amount of interest.
Achieve The Best Price for your Home
Estate agents with experience in Wakefield will understand the Wakefield property marketplace, and should assist you with getting the best value for your house.

Do Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Wakefield? 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.
Gloss Work - Tired looking Gloss Work (such as doors, door frames and skirting boards) can make a property look shabby. Try to bring it all back to a shine with a damp cloth.
Make some coffee - Most people love the smell of brewing coffee, even if they don't like to drink it. Consider putting on some fresh coffee just before a viewing, it's sure to create a welcoming odour for those Wakefield viewers!
De-Clutter - It’s your home in Wakefield, you’ve lived there for years, it feels like part of you, and you love it. But if you’re selling, then it’s time to move out mentally! Try to pack away as much personal clutter as you can. Leave a few, favourite items out so that the house doesn’t feel like a Wakefield hotel, but otherwise present your viewers with a blank canvas, somewhere that they can imagine making their own.

Food For Thought
How much time does the legal process take ?
This is perhaps one of our most frequently asked questions and regrettably, there simply is no easy answer because it depends on many different factors. The most straightforward type of sale is the one of an unoccupied property to a cash purchaser. This would probably take around 6 weeks to complete (from instruction with a solicitor to when the property becomes the new owner's property). If the buyer requires a mortgage, this may well add a few weeks to the process. In the case where the seller is additionally acquiring a property, this could add a couple more weeks and maybe even longer if there is a larger chain of related sales. Even more delays could come about because of mislaid paperwork, lethargic Wakefield solicitors and sluggish buyers and sellers. A typical completion timeframe is about ten to fourteen weeks.
What does "Exchange of Contracts" mean?
This is when the contract becomes binding between buyer and seller. Up until this moment, the buyer is free to withdraw from the purchase, for any reason, without penalty. Exchange takes place over the telephone between the solicitors of the buyer and seller. Clients are not present at this time. A Completion date is set at this time. This is set in stone and cannot be changed.
