Should I use a Bristol solicitor for my conveyancing?
There's no real need to use a solicitor located in Bristol to do your conveyancing. Your whole case can be managed efficiently by post, email and telephone.
Why use a Bristol Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Bristol 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.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Many estate agents in Bristol will offer to do accompanied viewings on your behalf. The agent will show off your property to those viewing it, underlining the best features. Most viewers are more likely to tell an agent, than the owner, what they dislike about a house. The outcome is that if you employ a Bristol estate agent, you are likely to receive honest information on what details of your property need fixing up to achieve a faster sale, at the best value.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Bristol 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're all very proud of our houses
Those desiring to view your home can often be a brutal group, stalking all over the house like celebreties, offering unplesant opinions and making discontented faces. Even perhaps the most well kept houses are in for a bashing, simply for the reason that one person's preference is another person's non-preference. So it is perhaps for the better if you let a Bristol property agent show property viewers about your home - and leave it to them to feed back any worthwhile comments. Nobody likes to have their house picked on by strangers.
Good Local Knowledge
An estate agent or letting agent in Bristol is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.

Neutralise Nasty Odours - If you're trying to sell your Bristol property, then perhaps it's time to ask a good friend the question "does my house smell". If you live with unpleasant odours, then you may no longer notice them. Get the blunt opinion of a friend. If there's a problem, don't worry... there are plenty of products on the market to remove nasty smells, rather than cover them up.
Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Bristol property on the market, then you may want to consider getting your garden fences painted / repaired.
Privacy is an important issue for many house buyers, and a tidy, secure, well-maintained boundary with neighbouring properties will be a big plus, rather than "another job that will need doing".
In the same manner, ensure that hedges and trees are trimmed and tidy.
Clean 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 Bristol property buyers.
Clean your windows - You should be able to clean your ground-floor windows, frames and sills easily - and a professional window-cleaner won't be expensive to get the upper floor windows done too. To make the best possible impression get your windows cleaned to a shine. Make sure your window ledges are tidy and that curtains and blinds are neatly arranged. If you have net curtains, consider giving them a clean (or your actual curtains if they're looking grubby).

Food For Thought
Could it be wiser to use a local Bristol property lawyer?
Usually, this could be a far more expensive option. If you feel as though you must go into the solicitor's premises and talk a case through, then it is probably better to pay the additional costs to use a locally based property solicitor. Be aware, significantly more cases nowadays are transacted at a distance as property buyers and sellers make use of competitive legal fees. Even more people now employ a conveyancer via the Internet than those who have been recommended a solicitor by a family member.
Does my slicitor have to be situated in Bristol?
It's a good question - and the simple answer is "Not at all". In the modern world most conveyancing solicitors are able to act in a matter of conveyancing in any town in England or Wales. All communication is conducted via telephone, email and post. By employing an "Non Local" conveyancing solicitor who specialises in conveyancing, you could well save a lot of money.
