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.
Brandon 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 Brandon.
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. Usually 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.
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 queries you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.

Make some coffee - Most people love the smell of brewing coffee, even if they don't like to drink it. Consider putting on some fresh coffee just before a viewing, it's sure to create a welcoming odour for those Brandon viewers!
Marketing Your Home Through an Estate Agent - Even though you may have thought you'd selected the best estate agent in the town of Brandon, 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.
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 normally 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 normally houses a powerful vacuum for a very thorough clean.
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 Brandon viewers. Consider calling in a local Brandon cleaning specialist to revive carpets.

Food For Thought
Any property agent in Brandon can boast of a large number of prospective applicants on their books but it is your responsibility to establish what systems are in place to qualify those buyers as suitable to view and go ahead to buy your property. A good percentage of applicants could register an interest in your home but a well trained property agent can pick out those buyers who have a serious and pressing need to buy and should as a consequence be showing serious interest in buying your house.
What are searches?
As part of the process of purchasing your property, the solicitor you appoint will conduct searches on your behalf. (You must pay for these). The searches relate to the property you are buying - and check for various things. Is the current ownership of the property all in order? Is the seller in a legally sound position to do so? Is the environment OK (toxic ground, tree preservation orders, radon gas, flood-prone etc.). Is the land registered? What are the status of the mains water supply, drainage and sewerage? Are there mines or mining activity affecting the property? And so on. The purpose of the searches is to ensure that you are buying a property legally, and with no nasty surprises.
