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.
Seek Out Good Advice
A Bideford estate agent is qualified to be able to give an answer to any concerns that you may have about the buying or selling procedure.
The property buying and selling process is a complex one and can be very daunting, especially for first time sellers. Your estate agent will be able to guide you through the process of selling your home - and explain all of the steps. Some estate agents even have an Independent Financial Adviser in-branch who can help you with any financial questions you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.

Stay On Top Of The Estate Agent - Do not rely on your agent to make a sufficient effort when formulating the marketing hand-out and creating the window display details. Always look very carefully at what they've created and do not be shy to demand that they execute changes to these materials if you feel that they have not worked hard enough. Check spelling and errors of grammar. Make sure that all of the details are correct.
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 bedraggled 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.
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 Bideford viewers. Consider calling in a local Bideford cleaning specialist to revive carpets.
Renew Scruffy Flooring - Linoleum flooring in bathrooms and kitchens can often look very ragged after years of use. It is inexpensive to replace. Consider renewing it if it looks worse for wear.

Food For Thought
Is it more prudent to choose a local Bideford conveyancer?
Usually, this could prove to be a far more expensive choice. If you feel as though you need to walk into the solicitor's place of business and speak with them, then it is far better to pay the additional costs to use a local solicitor. Remember, an ever increasing amount of cases these days are being dealt with remotely as purchasers and sellers take advantage of keen legal fees. Even more people now engage a solicitor via the World Wide Web than those who have been recommended a solicitor by a family member.
Agents Rates of Commission Explained
Most vendors are unaware of the disparate rates of commission that Bideford agents will charge for the sale of your home. It is a well established fact that not all Bideford agencies charge identical rates of commission and there is a very good reason why - so do not make your selection of agency based on price alone. Some Bideford agents may quote you their standard prices but looking at your house, may arrive at the conclusion that the property is more difficult to sell than their typical properties because it's in an undesirable area or bad state of repair warranting more marketing costs and sales effort. on the other hand, other agents may quote a smaller than normal rate if they think that they can sell your property without much effort and with great speed. A number of Bideford agents do not have the running costs of larger agencies who have made high levels of investment in town centre offices, top-level staff training, complex computer software and top-of-the-range marketing materials and resources. That's not to say that cut-price commission charges will manifest in low quality customer service and professional standards because one can sometimes experience inadequate service when employing bigger firms too. Cut price Bideford agents usually require a larger turnover of properties in order to trade profitably and they are as a result far less likely to show concern about achieving the best value for their vendors. The net amount of the after sale proceeds in your pocket is surely more important than the percentage fee your Bideford agent has charged you in commission fees.
