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.

Presentation

A good estate agent in Bideford will be able to advise you on how to best present your property to potential purchasers.

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.

Find Sound Advice

A Bideford property agent is well equipped to be able to answer any concerns that you might have in relation to the purchase or selling processes.

Agent Accompanied Viewings

Some estate agents in Bideford will give the option to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. The agent will show-off your house to those viewing it, highlighting the most attractive features. Most viewers are increasingly likely to tell an estate agent, than the property owner, what they hate about a house. This means that if you employ the services of a Bideford estate agent, you are likely to receive honest information about what aspects of your house need dressing up to achieve a fast sale, at the highest achievable value.

Selling Tips

Tidy The GardenTidy The Garden - Perhaps you are not much of a gardener, your lawn is un-cut and the whole place is looking rather messy! Well it’s time to get busy. A badly presented garden may well be off-putting to Bideford buyers. Cut the lawn, trim the edges and remove as much junk and clutters as you can. A few plastic pots filled with colourful flowers could really change the appeal of your property.

Do something about your energy EfficiencyTake Energy Efficiency Seriously - If you're placing your home on the market then Bideford purchasers are likely to be searching for homes with energy efficiency, as these houses are likely to be cheaper to keep, and faster to sell later on. A knowledgeable Bideford estate agency will be able to give you advice on this matter and point you in the right direction for converting your house to be improved so as to be energy efficient. The selling process now requires that an energy assessment professional will come and assess your home for its current and future potential Energy Efficiency Score and an current and potential Environmental (CO2) Impact Score. This certificate is required before to placing your property on the market.

Open Some WindowsOpen Some Windows - Consider opening some windows for a couple of hours before a viewing. If it's a hot stuffy day, the leave them open, if it's cold then close them. In either case, this should help to give the property a nice fresh feeling when sellers come to view.

Clean your windowsClean 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 Bideford property buyers.

Food For Thought

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!
When will I have to pay money out?
As a seller, you will have to pay for a Home Information Pack before marketing can begin. Once you have secured a sale, your Bideford solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. The balance of the money from the sale will come to you on the day of completion. The solicitor will take their fee out at this stage, as will the Bideford Estate Agent. As a buyer, your solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. On Exchange of Contracts, you will be asked by your solicitor to provide 5% or 10% of the purchase price. On the day of completion, your mortgage money will come in to your solicitor who will pass it on to the seller.

Customer Reviews & Comments

Chadwick Lawrence LLP

Excellent service. Gillian Sandford, who dealt with our sale and purchase, was very helpful and responded very quickly to all queries, whether by phone or email. On the one occasion when she was away, a colleague was able to respond and so no disruption was caused. Would most definitely use the service again.. Client, EX39. Rating: rating: 5 stars January, 2012

Cheesman & Co

Jennie and Claire have been awesome. Jennie has always relied to my enquiries within a few minutes, and all communications have been clear and precise, leaving me in no doubt what action I needed to take. My mortgage advisor has also complimented Jennie on her professionalism. This is the first time Ive used an online conveyancer, but if there is a next time, I shall definitely use Cheesmans again.. Client, NG1 1. Rating: rating: 5 stars December, 2011

David Porter & Co

Appeared to be polite, friendly and professional. The flat has not sold so we were unable to procede further with the sale.. Client, TQ1. Rating: rating: 5 stars April, 2011

The John W Davies Partnership LLP

Claire Ford was probably the best solicitor I have used in years, FULL MARKS Claire. Client, PL15. Rating: rating: 5 stars October, 2013

Chadwick Lawrence LLP

Our conveyancer, Jenny Newsum, provided a very prompt and efficient service. We were only selling a property so this simplified matters, but even so we were impressed with the speed with which Jenny replied to our email enquiries, and she was usually available to take phone calls. The lack of face to face contact only caused difficulty once, when one of us had to ask a local solicitor to verify a copy of their passport for id purposes. The sale went through without a problem so all in all a very good service and excellent value for money.. Client, HG5. Rating: rating: 5 stars March, 2012
