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.
Because we are all very proud of our homes
People viewing a property may well be an insensitive bunch, stalking all over the house like celebreties, making unplesant comments and pulling discontented facial expressions. Even perhaps the nicest houses are sometimes in for criticism, simply because one person's like is another person's non-preference. So it's perhaps for the better to let a Bristol property agent show property viewers around your house - and leave them to filter back to you any noteworthy critisizm. No one likes to have their house criticized by strangers.
Bristol Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People
It requires a particular personality to be a good sales person. It requires character, charisma, a certain manner, and perhaps even attractive looks. These are sometimes things that some of us find in short supply. If you're lucky your Bristol real estate agent will posses the attributes of a top sales person, and win the sale for you faster and at a superior price than you could manage on your own!
Most estate agents in Bristol may give the option to undertake accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. They will big-up your house to those viewing it, highlighting the best attributes. Some viewers are more likely to tell an estate agent, than the property owner, what they dislike about a property. The outcome is that if you employ the services of a Bristol estate agent, you are far more likely to receive honest information on what details of your property need fixing up to get a quick sale, at the best price.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Bristol property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Bristol estate agent will be able to guide you towards a price that strikes the right balance between being attractive to both you and any potential Bristol purchasers.

Clear the loft - remove all the rubbish. - Some buyers will ask to take a look in your attic space. If it is full of clutter that look likes it could not be removed then this may well be very deterring. In addition, a nice empty loft-space will give the appearance that it could have loft-conversion potential.
Tidy Up - Make sure that rooms are clean and tidy, especially bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen.
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 ragged 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 Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Bristol? If so, you may want to take a good, objective look around. How many small, simple jobs are there that you haven't bothered getting around to doing? The problem is that we become blind to the small flaws after a while (apart from the ones that annoy us), whereas an observant newcomer to your home will spot them straight away. We're talking about curling wall-paper, or borders just need sticking down; Marks on walls, that need wiping off; Dead flies or dust on a lamp-shade; Dirty windows; Old screw-holes in walls that need filling and touching up. Now is the time to put a day aside to do these little jobs, and help achieve the best price for you property.

Food For Thought
Buy And Refurbish In A Risky Market
I wonder just how many folks got trapped badly in the downward spiral in the marketplace, when they bought a home at what looked like a give-away price, spent considerable money improving it, in the vain hope of selling it on at a profit. Very many, I'm certain! The question is... is there nevertheless wealth to be made? How can the chance be minimized? When you notice a would-be home, go get a Bristol estate agent, or a few, and get an professional opinion. How much is the property truly worth now? How much will it be worth if it was made up to a respectable state? Find a builder who is used to subbing out the many aspects of the renovation trade, and obtain a realistic quotation for the restoration job. Now work out your probable income, and measure how severely the marketplace would have to to downward spiral to wipe out that turnover, and land you in arrears. Now you should have a reasonable measurement of the danger. Don't forget... it's straightforward to start going above budget on the repair. Make allowances for this! These are just a number of suggestions... not advice! Good luck!
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.
