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.
Because we are all very proud of our houses
People viewing a property can often be an insensitive bunch, marching around the house like celebreties, making unkind opinions and making discontented faces. Even the best decorated homes are sometimes in for criticism, simply because one person's preference is some other person's dislike. So it's perhaps best to let a Baldock property agent take property viewers about your property - and leave them to filter back any noteworthy critisizm. Nobody enjoys having their house picked on by strangers.
In The Know
A good Baldock 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.
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.

Animals in your garden areas. - If you are marketing your house in Baldock then you may want to inspect your garden areas for mess left behind by either your own dogs and cats or neighbour's pets. If your garden looks like it is being used for a litter tray, then this can surely make a bad impression . Don't forget to pick up after your own pets, and think about using anti-dog or cat measures to frighten away and put-off your neighbouring property's pets. Always ensure such measures are humane.
Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Baldock property on the market, then you may want to consider getting your garden fences painted / repaired.
Privacy is an important issue for many house buyers, and a tidy, secure, well-maintained boundary with neighbouring properties will be a big plus, rather than "another job that will need doing".
In the same manner, ensure that hedges and trees are trimmed and tidy.
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.
Neutralise Nasty Odours - If you're trying to sell your Baldock property, then perhaps it's time to ask a good friend the question "does my house smell". If you live with unpleasant odours, then you may no longer notice them. Get the blunt opinion of a friend. If there's a problem, don't worry... there are plenty of products on the market to remove nasty smells, rather than cover them up.

Food For Thought
Property Portals, what's the fuss?
It's been interesting to see so many property portals emerge. The WWW is less than 30 years old, and websites listing properties from many different agents are even younger. A few winners and losers have surfaced from the multitude of websites that offer very similar services. Namely: Zoopla and Rightmove. The main reason for the popularity of these property portals is the television advertisements they invest money in, enabling them to attract a massive audience in the United Kingdom. These two websites are really the best of the bunch for the reason that they are the ones which attract the most agents to advertise homes with them - and as a consequence have the the greatest quantity of UK houses in the same place. Which one is the winner? Well that is strictly your choice - the consumer. Each site has a differing style, a differing feel to it and different functions - but both fundamentally create the same - help you to search for local homes matching your preferred options, and to look at the details, images and features of that house.
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.
