Why use a Bideford Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Bideford 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.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Bideford area will give your agent the edge when trying to find a buyer for your property. They will know the location of local amenities, the local schools, which areas are well thought of and the pricing and sales trends. They will also be able to advise you of the best price that can be achieved in the area if various improvements are made to a property, and how much to reduce by to get a fast sale.
Good Local Knowledge
An estate agent or letting agent in Bideford is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.
The Right Value
A Bideford-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Bideford.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Many agents in Bideford may give the option to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. The agent will show-off the property to viewers, highlighting all of the best features. Some viewers are increasingly likely to tell an agent, than the home owner, what they find unattractive about a house. The result of this is that if you use a Bideford agent, you are far more likely to get honest feedback on what aspects of your property need fixing up to get a fast sale, at the highest price.

Clear the loft - remove all the rubbish. - Some buyers will ask to take a look in your loft . If the loft is stuffed to the brim with clutter that has the appearance that it could not be removed then this can be off-putting. Additionally, a clear empty loft will look like it may have the potential to be converted.
Shop around for a proactive Bideford estate agent - If you're putting your Bideford property on the market - then it's important to shop around before choosing your Bideford estate agent. The Internet affords the luxury of being able to read genuine customer feedback and reviews. For each agent in Bideford take the time to search the Internet and get a feel for what other clients are saying about them. You're looking for consistently good feedback. This should give you the confidence that they're going to do a good job for you, and get your property sold. If you come across bad feedback, then take the time to look at how old it is. Have been people been saying nicer things more recently? After all, if an agency had bad feedback in the past - and has improved, they could still be the best choice for you.
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).
Keep Pressurising Your Property Agency - Don't place too much reliance on your agent to put the required effort into producing the sales hand-out and creating the window promotion details. Ensure that you scrutinise what they've prepared and don't be afraid to insist that they make changes to these materials if you think that they have not put the required effort into this work. Check for good spelling and grammatical errors. Ensure that all of the statements are not misleading.

Food For Thought
Buy And Refurbish In A Risky Market
I wonder how many people got caught seriously in the downturn in the market, when they purchased a home at what looked like a give-away value, spent thousands of pounds doing it up, in the empty chance of selling it on at a gain. Very many, I'm sure! The question is... is there yet wealth to be made? How can the danger be minimized? When you catch sight of a possible property, go get hold of a Bideford property agent, or more than one, and pick up an professional view. How much is the home actually worth at present? What would its value be if it was made up to a respectable state? Locate a builder who is used to subbing out the numerous aspects of the renovation trade, and pick up a reasonable quotation for the overhaul job. Now calculate your possible revenue, and assess how seriously the market would have to to dip to wipe out that return, and land you in arrears. Now you should have a satisfactory assessment of the risk. Don't forget... it's straightforward to start going in excess of financial plan on the restoration. Make allowances for this! These are just a few suggestions... not advice! Good luck!
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 Bideford solicitor is a really bad idea! Use a qualified professional for your property transaction, or you are very likely to regret it!
