Why use a Callander Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Callander 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're all proud of our houses
People viewing a property can often be a brutal bunch, stalking around the house like celebreties, offering unplesant assessments and making discontented faces. Even perhaps the best decorated homes are sometimes in for criticism, simply for the reason that one person's preference is some other person's dislike. For this reason it is perhaps best to let a Callander estate agent show property viewers around your house - and leave them to feed back any worthwhile comments. Nobody likes to have their house picked on by strangers.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Callander 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.
In The Know
A good Callander 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.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Callander property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Callander 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 Callander purchasers.

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.
Make your home energy Efficient - If you are marketing your home for sale then Callander buyers will be searching for energy efficient properties, as these properties are likely to be less expensive to run, and simpler to re-sell at a later date. A good Callander estate agency will be able to advise you on this matter and direct you to the right resources for converting your home to be increasingly energy efficient. The selling process now requires that an energy assessor will come and assess your house for a current and achievable Energy Efficiency Rating and an existing and achievable Environmental (CO2) Impact Score. This assessment is required prior to advertising your property.
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 Callander property buyers.
Sort out your lighting. - A bad lighting scheme can very much undersell your Callander property. Consider sorting your lighting out. Consult a specialist if you need to. Dark rooms can look small and poky. Rooms that are too bright can look harsh and unwelcoming. Very bright light will show up all marks, dirt, stains and dust.

Food For Thought
When should I book my removals?
Only make a firm booking when contracts have been exchanged. Only at this point will you be certain of the day of the move.
When will I have to pay money out?
As a seller, you will have to pay for a Home Information Pack before marketing can begin. Once you have secured a sale, your Callander solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. The balance of the money from the sale will come to you on the day of completion. The solicitor will take their fee out at this stage, as will the Callander Estate Agent. As a buyer, your solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. On Exchange of Contracts, you will be asked by your solicitor to provide 5% or 10% of the purchase price. On the day of completion, your mortgage money will come in to your solicitor who will pass it on to the seller.
