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.
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.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Many estate agents in Baldock may offer to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. They will show off your property to those viewing it, highlighting the best features. Most viewers are more prone to tell an agent, than the owner, what they don’t like about a house. The outcome is that if you employ the services of a Baldock estate agent, you are far more likely to get honest feedback about what aspects of your house need fixing up to get a faster sale, at the best value.
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.
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.

Conveyancing - When you are buying or selling Baldock property, then one expense that is difficult to avoid is the legal cost. It really isn't a good idea to cut out the solicitor, as conveyancing is a complex process, and there are many pitfalls. The good news is this: There is no good reason to use a local solicitor - and AgentQuote.co.uk can help to find you a quality national solicitor who will do the work for a much cheaper price.
Marketing Your Home Through an Estate Agent - Even though you may have thought you'd selected the best estate agent in the town of Baldock, they may have become complacent by relying on their reputation. Always satisfy yourself that they are doing the best job for YOU. Never mind their other clients - it's your home that needs the effort behind it to market and sell it as effectively as possible.
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.
Get Painting - Consider some fresh paint. There’s a good reason why new builds in Baldock are normally presented in magnolia and white. The light colours make rooms look bigger and cleaner. White paint, in particular, makes kitchens and bathrooms look spick and span. Remember, that dark purple that you painted your bedroom in, that you totally love, may not be to Baldock buyer’s liking!

Food For Thought
Estate Agents Rates of Commission Explained
Most property sellers are not aware of the disparate rates of commission that Baldock estate agents will charge to sell your property. It is a known fact that not all Baldock estate agencies charge identical rates and there's a very good reason why - so don't make your selection of agency based on price alone. A number of Baldock estate agents could quote you standard rates but upon appraising your house, may determine that the property may be more difficult to market than their typical properties because it is in an undesirable area or in a poor state of repair warranting more marketing costs and effort. Conversely, other agents may quote a lower than usual commission if they conclude that they can move your house without much effort and with great speed. Some Baldock agents simply do not suffer with the running costs of larger agencies who have invested heavily in high street offices, top-level staff training, sophisticated database systems and top-of-the-range marketing collateral and resources. That's not to say that low cost commission charges will deliver cut-down customer service and professionalism because one can on occasion experience inadequacies when employing bigger firms too. Cut price Baldock agents typically require a higher turnover of properties to survive and are as a consequence far less prone to show concern about securing the best value for their clients. The final total of the post-sale money in your pocket is surely of greater importance than the commission your Baldock agent has charged in commission fees.
Why Use A Solicitor?
Many people begrudge the money they have to spend when they buy or sell property. Who can blame them? The government's stamp duty, the estate agent's fee, the HIP pack, all the search fees, the new, more expensive land registry fee, and then of course the solicitor's fee. Some people try to cut out the estate agent, others try to cut out the solicitor. Cutting out a Baldock solicitor is a really bad idea! Use a qualified professional for your property transaction, or you are very likely to regret it!
