Why use a Clacton-On-Sea Estate Agent?

A good estate agent in Clacton-On-Sea will be able to advise you on how to best present your property to potential purchasers.
Because we are all very proud of our houses
Those desiring to view your home may well be an unkind bunch, marching around the house like royalty, offering unkind comments and pulling discontented faces. Even the best of houses are in for a bashing, simply for the reason that the first's like is another person's non-preference. So it's perhaps best to let a Clacton-On-Sea estate agent show property viewers about your home - and leave them to filter back to you any useful comments. No one likes to have their house picked on by strangers.

These are simply things that many of us lack. Hopefully your Clacton-On-Sea real estate agent will posses the criteria of a top sales person, and win the sale faster for you and at a superior price than you could manage on your own!

Rent Some Storage - If your house is very cluttered, then you may want to consider renting a storage unit in Clacton-On-Sea. Removing large, unnecessary articles of furniture and other clutter will give the appearance of bigger rooms. Viewers like to see a reasonably blank canvas, that they can really imagine making their own. The disadvantages are the weekly costs of storage, and the double-handling of the furniture, that you will now have to move twice.
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 Clacton-On-Sea viewers. Consider calling in a local Clacton-On-Sea cleaning specialist to revive carpets.
Sort out your lighting. - A bad lighting scheme can very much undersell your Clacton-On-Sea 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.
Be Energy Efficient - If you are placing your home on the market then Clacton-On-Sea purchasers will be searching for homes with energy efficiency, as these homes are likely to be less expensive to keep, and easier to sell later on. A knowledgeable Clacton-On-Sea property agent should be equipped to give you advice on this matter and direct you to the right resources for upgrading your property to be more energy saving. It is a requirement that an energy efficiency assessment professional will come and assess your house for a current and achievable Energy Efficiency Score and an current and achievable Environmental (CO2) Impact Rating. This certificate is needed prior to placing your property on the market.

Food For Thought
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.
Not All Agencies Are The Same
Not all estate agencies are of the same quality. When you are deciding on a Clacton-On-Sea agent to help you sell your property it is prudent to ask many queries. What are the fees? Do they do viewings on your behalf? Are they professional? What do their hand-outs and window display cards appear like? What are the elective extras that you may have to find money for to enjoy? How regularly will your home be shown in your local property listings? What is their property hunter's book looking like? Is their premises presentable? All of these queries well worth asking prior to giving them your business. Don't forget, you are looking for the best offering of sales services for the best commission charge.
