Why use a Barnstaple Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Barnstaple 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 Value
A Barnstaple-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Barnstaple.
A good estate agent in Barnstaple will be able to advise you on how to best present your property to potential purchasers.
Get Expert Advice
A Barnstaple property agent is qualified to be able to give an answer to any questions or queries you might have about the buying or selling procedure.
A good Barnstaple 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 Barnstaple property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Normally an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Barnstaple 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.

Weed the garden - One of the first things a potential buyer will see when they arrive at your property is the garden. If the garden is ragged then it will be a bad start, and make the wrong first impression. Pick up litter, cut the lawn and pull / kill any weeds that are growing in or around the path or patio areas. Consider hiring a pressure washer to clean up your path if it's looking really grubby.
Spend Up To 1% - It is often advised that a seller should consider spending up to 1% of the sale value of the property on re-decoration, D.I.Y. and / or touching-up to achieve the best price. You should discuss this with a local Barnstaple specialist adviser or Barnstaple estate agent. A good Barnstaple estate agent may be able to point you in the right direction.
Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Barnstaple 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.
Pet Problems - If you own pets, then consider re-housing them while your try to sell your home. At the very least, keep them out of sight during viewings, and make sure that you have removed as much trace of them as possible. Cat litter trays, bowls of pet food, pet hairs, stains on carpets and scratched up walls or furniture can be off-putting. There is also the issue of allergies to consider. Many people are allergic to pet hairs and dust. A home that sets off a reaction may put off otherwise keen Barnstaple viewers. Consider calling in a local Barnstaple cleaning specialist to revive carpets.

Food For Thought
Low Charges and Low Services V More Expensive Costs and Better Quality
In order for budget estate agents to be able to compete with the bigger concerns in the area of Barnstaple, you should always try to speak with a range of agencies from both camps to hear what they have to say. Allow the costlier agent have a chance to explain the good reasons to be employing their services and experience in marketing your property; and for the cheaper agent to do the same. Do not make your choice on price alone.
Buy And Refurbish In A Risky Market
I wonder just how many folks got trapped badly in the slump in the marketplace, when they purchased a home at what looked like a bargain price, spent thousands of pounds doing it up, in the vain dream of selling it on at a return. A lot, I'm certain! The question is... is there ,in spite of everything wealth to be made? How can the chance be minimized? When you spot a prospective property, go bring a Barnstaple estate agent, or a few, and find an specialist estimation. How much is the home genuinely worth at the present? What would its value be if it was finished up to a lovely state? Get in a builder who is familiar with subbing out the various aspects of the renovation trade, and pick up a realistic quotation for the reconstruction job. Now calculate your probable income, and gauge how dreadfully the market would have to to downward spiral to remove that revenue, and land you in debt. Now you will have a realistic assessment of the risk. Don't forget... it's simple to start going over financial plan on the restoration. Make allowances for this! These are just a number of suggestions... not advice! Good luck!
