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.
Baldock Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People
It requires a particular personality to be a good sales person. It takes character, charisma, a certain manner, and perhaps even the right looks. These are sometimes things that many of us lack. If you're lucky your local Baldock real estate agent will be in possession the attributes of a good sales man or woman, and win the sale for you faster and at a better price than you could manage on your own!
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.
Baldock estate agents have many local industry connections. They may be able to recommend a good local solicitor, mortgage broker, insurance broker or financial adviser in Baldock.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Baldock property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Baldock estate agent will be able to guide you towards a price that strikes the right balance between being attractive to both you and any potential Baldock purchasers.

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 Baldock 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.
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. Baldock property hunters will mainly prefer a "blank canvas" to a scheme that sticks out as being dated.
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.
Clean your windows - You should be able to clean your ground-floor windows, frames and sills easily - and a professional window-cleaner won't be expensive to get the upper floor windows done too. To make the best possible impression get your windows cleaned to a shine. Make sure your window ledges are tidy and that curtains and blinds are neatly arranged. If you have net curtains, consider giving them a clean (or your actual curtains if they're looking grubby).

Food For Thought
It is important to know the extent of service an estate agent in Baldock will provide to you in respect of viewings to suit your requirements and convenience.
Some estate agents in Baldock 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.
Should I Employ A Web-Based Agent?
Maybe you've noticed that there is an increasing number of Web based estate-agents popping up. Simply put, these are agents that do not have a shop front and leverage the World Wide Web to sell their property book. These property agencies can frequently heavily under-cut high-street agencies. However, there are a few very items of import to be careful of ... Does the agent advertise in your local press? Does the agent put your home onto the main property portals? Does the agent offer accompanied viewings? If these things are not important to you, then carry on and save a packet!
