Why use a Barnstaple Estate Agent?

Here are some points to consider when deciding whether to find an estate agent to help you market and sell or let your property.
Barnstaple Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People

These are sometimes attributes that some of us lack. If you're lucky your Barnstaple real estate agent will posses the attributes of a top sales man or woman, and close the sale for you faster and at a better price than you could manage on your own!
In The Know
A good Barnstaple 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.
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.
Good Local Knowledge
An estate agent or letting agent in Barnstaple is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.

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.
Tidy Up - Make sure that rooms are clean and tidy, especially bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen.
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 Barnstaple property buyers.
Dogs and cats in the garden areas. - If you are marketing your home in Barnstaple then you aught to examine your lawns for unpleasant mess deposited by your own pets or yourneighbour's pets. If your garden looks like it's being used for a toilet, then this can surely make a very bad impression on viewers. Clean up after your own pets, and consider installing anti dog or cat measures to frighten away and put-off neighbour's cats and dogs. Please make sure these measures are not cruel.
