Why use a Baldock Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Baldock 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 Baldock is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.
A good Baldock 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 Baldock 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 Baldock 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.
A good estate agent in Baldock will be able to advise you on how to best present your property to potential purchasers.
Baldock Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People
It requires a particular personality to be a good sales person. It takes charisma, a winsome manner, good character, and in some cases the right looks. These are simply things that some of us lack. If you're lucky your Baldock real estate agent will be in possession the attributes of a good sales man or woman, and close the sale faster for you and at a superior price than you could manage on your own!

De-Clutter - It’s your home in Baldock, 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 Baldock hotel, but otherwise present your viewers with a blank canvas, somewhere that they can imagine making their own.
Clean your windows - If your windows or mirrors are looking grubby, consider mixing some white spirit vinegar with a little water and washing up liquid, popping the mixture in a spray-bottle and giving your windows and mirrors a clean. (use this cleaning tip at your own peril!). The washing liquid will act as a de-greaser and the vinegar will act as an anti-foamer / streaker. Grubby windows or mirrors will create a bad impression on Baldock property buyers.
Scrub Up - Don’t be afraid to get out your favourite cleaning products and really get stuck into those tired areas of your property. The ’nearly new’ look of kitchen units, appliances and bathroom furniture will really go down well with Baldock buyers.
Pay For A Deep Clean - If a girl was going out on a important date, there's a reasonable chance she's either spend a lot of time at home getting ready, or even go to a Baldock beauty salon. If you're trying to sell a Baldock property then don't treat it any different! Consider getting in a deep-cleaning service. Prices, and level of service will vary, so look around! They will steam clean carpets, curtains and upholstery. They will get rid of all of the dirt that you may not even notice. Your oven will look like new! Hopefully the overall freshness and odour of your property will improve. This should really help with your sale!

Food For Thought
Estate Agents Fees Disambiguated
The vast majority of sellers are not aware of the differing rates of commission that Baldock estate agents will charge for the sale of your home. It is a well established fact that not all Baldock estate agencies charge the same rates of commission and there is a good reason for this - so don't make your decision on price alone. Some Baldock agents may quote you standard charges but looking at the house, may conclude that the property may be more difficult to sell than their typical houses because it is in high crime area or in a poor state of repair warranting increased marketing costs and sales effort. Conversely, some agents could quote a lower than normal commission if they think that they can move your house without much effort and quickly. A number of Baldock agents may not suffer with the overheads of bigger agencies who have invested heavily in town centre offices, high quality training for staff, complex computer software and top-of-the-range marketing collateral and resources. That's not to say that low cost commission rates will deliver cut-down customer service and professional standards because you can at times experience inadequate service when dealing with bigger chain firms too. low price Baldock agents usually need a bigger turnover of stock in order to trade profitably and are as a result less prone to show concern with regards to achieving the best price for their vendors. The final total of the post-sale money in your bank account is clearly of greater importance than the percentage fee your Baldock estate agent has invoiced you in commission costs.
How long will the whole legal procedure take ?
This is perhaps one of our most regularly made enquiries and regrettably, there is no easy answer as it depends on many different factors. The most simple type of property sale is the one of an unoccupied property to a cash purchaser. This kind of transaction would usually take around six weeks to conclude (from the time of instruction with a solicitor to when the property is transferred). If the purchaser requires a loan, this could add a few weeks to the process. In the case where the purchaser is additionally buying a property, this could add two to four additional weeks and maybe even more delay if there is an extended chain of connected sales. Further hold-ups could come about from missing paperwork, slow Baldock conveyancers and sluggish buyers and sellers. A typical completion timeframe is roughly ten to fourteen weeks.
