Why use a Brandon Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Brandon 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.
In The Know
A good Brandon 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.
A good Brandon 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 Brandon property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Normally an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Brandon 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.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Brandon 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.
Because we are all proud of our homes
Those desiring to view your home may well be a brutal group, stalking all over the house like royalty, making unplesant assessments and pulling unhappy faces. Even the nicest houses are in for a bashing, simply because one person's like is some other person's dislike. So it is perhaps best to let a Brandon property agent take property viewers around your property - and leave it to them to filter back to you any noteworthy feedback. Nobody likes to have their home picked on by strangers.

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 unkempt 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.
Do you have dirty carpets? - If you have dirty carpets in your Brandon property then it could really put off potential buyers and reduce your selling price. It's well worth calling in a local carpet cleaning firm to give them a good cleaning. They usually come to your home with a van and very long hoses and thoroughly steam and/or water clean your carpets - giving them a new lease of life. The van usually houses a powerful vacuum for a very thorough clean.
Renew Scruffy Flooring - Linoleum flooring in bathrooms and kitchens can often look very scruffy after years of use. It is inexpensive to replace. Consider renewing it if it looks worse for wear.
Become Energy Efficient - If you're marketing your home for sale then Brandon applicants will be searching for properties which are energy efficient, as these houses are likely to be less expensive to keep, and simpler to re-sell . A knowledgeable Brandon estate agent will be equipped to give you advice on this matter and direct you to the right resources for upgrading your house to be more energy saving. The selling process now requires that an energy efficiency assessment inspector will come and assess your house for a current and potential Energy Efficiency Score and an existing and potential Environmental (CO2) Impact Rating. This certificate is needed prior to advertising your property.

Food For Thought
What does "Exchange of Contracts" mean?
This is when the contract becomes binding between buyer and seller. Up until this moment, the buyer is free to withdraw from the purchase, for any reason, without penalty. Exchange takes place over the telephone between the solicitors of the buyer and seller. Clients are not present at this time. A Completion date is set at this time. This is set in stone and cannot be changed.
Credit Crunch Bites Hard
The credit crunch has decimated UK house prices. Residential property values have fallen drastically since summer 2008, when they were at their peak. They fell at their fastest rate for 25 years. They have now started a slow recovery. This remains a good time for a first time buyer to consider a purchase, but a worry for property owners who borrowed more than their property is now worth.
