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.
A good Bristol 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 Bristol 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 Bristol 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.
Bristol Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People
It takes a special kind of person to be a good sales person. It requires charisma, a winsome manner, good character, and in some cases good looks. These are sometimes attributes that some of us lack. If you're lucky your local Bristol estate agent will be in possession the criteria of a top sales person, and win a sale for you faster and at a superior price than you could achieve if you tried to sell your own property!
Bristol estate agents are good at marketing property
Bristol estate agents are experts at marketing houses. Not everyone is born a sales man or woman - and the work of making a sale is usually a job for an expert. Your property agent will have the knowledge to take appealing pictures of your property, the methods required to devise a good description of it and where to market that information to obtain the greatest amount of enquiries.
Although you may be confident that you're more than capable of managing the sale of your own property, the truth of the matter is that many of us have precious little spare time. Bristol applicants will not appreciate having to arrange viewings around your schedule. In all likelihood you will achieve a faster sale if you use a good Bristol estate agent.

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.
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.
Open 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.
Spend Up To 1% - It is often advised that a seller should consider spending up to 1% of the sale value of the property on re-decoration, D.I.Y. and / or touching-up to achieve the best price. You should discuss this with a local Bristol specialist adviser or Bristol estate agent. A good Bristol estate agent may be able to point you in the right direction.

Food For Thought
What does "Completion" mean?
This is when the buyer becomes the legal owner of the property and can move in. As early as possible on the agreed day, the buyer's solicitor will send the balance of the purchase money to the seller's solicitor. The seller's solicitor will notify the estate agent and the seller when the transaction is complete. Only then should the keys be released to the purchaser. This typically takes place around noon but could be as late as 5pm.
Buy And Refurbish In A Risky Market
I speculate just how many people got trapped seriously in the downward spiral in the marketplace, when they bought a property at what looked like a give-away price, spent considerable money doing it up, in the futile dream of selling it on at a return. Very many, I'm in no doubt! The question is... is there yet money to be made? How can the risk be minimized? When you spot a would-be house, go get a Bristol property agent, or a few, and obtain an professional view. How much is the house in reality worth at present? What would its value be if it was finished up to a first-rate condition? Find a builder who is familiar with subbing out the numerous aspects of the renovation trade, and acquire a accurate quotation for the renovation work. Now work out your potential revenue, and assess how unfavourably the market would need to downturn to clean out that revenue, and land you in debt. Now you will have a reasonable evaluation of the danger. Don't forget... it's simple to start going over plan on the renovation. Make allowances for this! These are just a few suggestions... not advice! Good luck!
