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.
Because we're all very proud of our houses
Property viewers can often be an insensitive group, stalking around the house like celebreties, offering unplesant comments and pulling discontented facial expressions. Even perhaps the nicest houses are in for criticism, simply for the reason that one person's preference is some other person's dislike. For this reason it's perhaps for the better if you let a Barnstaple property agent take viewers about your house - and leave it to them to filter back any noteworthy feedback. Nobody likes to have their home disrespected by visitors.
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.
Seek Out Good Advice
A Barnstaple estate agent is qualified to be able to answer any questions that you might have about the buying or selling process.
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. Usually 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.
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.
Find a good conveyancing solicitor for Barnstaple conveyancing - If you're selling or buying property in Barnstaple then you're going to need a good solicitor to do your conveyancing. The solicitor doesn't need to be local to Barnstaple to do your conveyancing. In-fact, you'll get a much better deal by using a solicitor that is geared up to deal with large volumes, rather than using someone local. Barnstaple conveyancing doesn't need to cost the earth!
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
How much time does the legal procedure take ?
This is perhaps one of our most regularly made queries and sadly, there simply is no straight answer as it is dependant on so many factors. The most simple kind of house sale is the one of an empty property to a cash purchaser. This kind of transaction would probably take about six weeks to conclude (from instruction with a solicitor to when the property legally finally becomes the new owner's property). If the purchaser is in need of a loan, this could well add a number of extra weeks to the time scale. In the case where the seller is also purchasing a property, this could add 2-4 additional weeks and maybe even more time if there is a bigger chain of related sales. Even more time delays could result because of mislaid documentation, lethargic Barnstaple solicitors and sluggish buyers and sellers. An average completion time is roughly 10 to 14 weeks.
Not All Agencies Are Of the same quality
Not all agents are the same. When you are making your choice of a Barnstaple agency to market and sell your property it is well worth asking many things. How much commission do they charge? Do they do viewings on your behalf? Are they friendly? What do their property brochures and window display brochures appear like? What are the elective extras that you may have to find money for to have? How regularly will your home be shown in your local property post? What is their applicant book looking like? Is their premises presentable? These are all queries well worth firing at your agent before employing them. Remember, you should be hunting for the best collection of sales services for the most reasonable commission charge.
