Why use a Birmingham Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Birmingham 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.
A good Birmingham 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 Birmingham 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 Birmingham 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.
Many agents in Birmingham may give the option to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. The agent will show off the house to those viewing it, highlighting the best features. Some viewers are more likely to tell an agent, than the property owner, what they dislike about a property. This means that if you employ a Birmingham agent, you are likely to get honest feedback about what aspects of your property need dressing up to get a quick sale, at the highest price.
If you desire to do something complicated then it is prudent to either get advice from an expert, or to find an expert to complete the task on your behalf. Selling or buying homes in Birmingham is no exception to this rule. Some property sales or purchases can prove to be very easy, but others are quite the opposite. Should a difficult item pops up during the process, you will be glad of the guidance and expert knowledge of your agent.
Birmingham estate agents have many local industry connections. They may be able to recommend a good local solicitor, mortgage broker, insurance broker or financial adviser in Birmingham.

Shop around for a proactive Birmingham estate agent - If you're putting your Birmingham property on the market - then it's important to shop around before choosing your Birmingham estate agent. The Internet affords the luxury of being able to read genuine customer feedback and reviews. For each agent in Birmingham 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.
Marketing Your Home Through an Estate Agent - Even though you may have thought you'd selected the best estate agent in the town of Birmingham, they may have become complacent by relying on their reputation. Always satisfy yourself that they are doing the best job for YOU. Never mind their other clients - it's your home that needs the effort behind it to market and sell it as effectively as possible.
Have Realistic Expectations With Respect To The Current Market - As with much of the rest of the U.K., the housing marketplace in Birmingham has been stronger. You should be sensible about the actual asking price of your property if you're wanting a rapid sale. This could prove to be troublesome, especially so if you overstretched on your property loan when you purchased your property. Think about discussing your situation with your local Financial Adviser, and with your agent to come to an agreement of a sensible valuation for your property.
Make a fuss over pictures. - Your agent (or yourself - should you choose to use the FSBO method) will need to create photographs of both the inside and exterior of your property. This is a must to have it listed in a winsome fashion on the Web, and in property particulars. Make certain that every photograph advertises the property or room to the best possible extent. Additionally, make sure that the angle and light source produces a flattering and desirable image. Get shot of as much clutter as you are able to before taking photos of a room or garden area - junk will cause your interior to appear smaller and unattractive. Avoid images with your digits, pets or smoking paraphernalia in them!

Food For Thought
Not All Agents Are Identical
Not all estate agencies are identical. When you are selecting a Birmingham estate agency to market your property it is well worth asking many questions. What are the charges? Do they do accompanied viewings? Do they communicate well? What do their property brochures and window cards look like? What are the optional extras that you may have to pay for to have? How often will your property be shown in the area's paper? What is their buyer's database shaping up like? Is their premises presentable? These are questions well worth firing at your agent prior to employing them. Remember, you are searching for the best collection of sales services for the lowest fee.
Credit Crunch Bites Hard
The credit crunch has greatly reduced UK house prices. Residential property prices have fallen drastically since summer 2008, when they peaked. They fell at their rapidest rate for twenty five years. They have now started a slow recovery. This is still a good time for first time buyers to consider a purchase, but worrying for owners who over-stretched their mortgage.
