Why use a Colchester Estate Agent?


There is a recent trend of Colchester 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.

Colchester 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 perhaps even attractive looks. These are sometimes attributes that some of us lack. If you're lucky your local Colchester real estate agent will be in possession the criteria of a top sales person, and close a sale for you faster and at a better price than you could manage on your own!

Quality Marketing

A good Colchester 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 Colchester property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Typically an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Colchester 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.

Agent Accompanied Viewings

Some estate agents in Colchester may give the option to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. The agent will show-off your house to viewers, underlining the best attributes. Most viewers are more prone to tell an estate agent, than the owner, what they don’t like about a property. This means that if you employ a Colchester agent, you are far more likely to receive honest information about what details of your property need fixing up to get a quick sale, at the highest achievable value.

Because we are all very proud of our homes

Those desiring to view your home may well be an insensitive group, marching around the house like royalty, making unplesant assessments and making unhappy facial expressions. Even the most well kept houses are sometimes in for a bashing, simply for the reason that one person's like is some other person's dislike. So it's perhaps for the better if you let a Colchester estate agent take property viewers around your property - and leave it to them to feed back any worthwhile feedback. No one enjoys having their house criticized by visitors.

Selling Tips

Neutralise Nasty OdoursNeutralise Nasty Odours - If you're trying to sell your Colchester 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.

Keep Pressurising Your Property AgentApply Pressure To The Estate Agency - Do not place too much reliance on your estate agent to put the required effort into producing the sales hand-out and creating your window promotion card. Ensure that you examine what they've drafted and do not be reticent to demand that they work on changes to these materials if you decide that they haven't put the required effort into this work. Look for bad spelling and grammar. Make sure that all of the descriptions are correct.

Tidy UpTidy Up - Make sure that rooms are clean and tidy, especially bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen.

Spend Up To 1%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 Colchester specialist adviser or Colchester estate agent. A good Colchester estate agent may be able to point you in the right direction.

Viewings Advice
It is important to know the extent of service an estate agent in Colchester will provide to you in respect of viewings to suit your requirements and convenience.

Some estate agents in Colchester do not include accompanied viewings in their service so it’s important to establish whether an estate agent will accompany all viewings and what arrangements they make for evenings and weekends.

Apart from the obvious security issues associated with an unaccompanied viewing, it is only when agents accompany buyers around a property that they can they probe, listen and understand what the buyer is really looking for. Estate agents who have developed a good understanding of their buyers’ preferences are less likely to direct unsuitable viewers to your property.

All queries were responded to quickly and efficiently. I would recommend this firm.. Mortgage Broker, CO3. Rating: rating: 5 stars November, 2013

Beaumont Legal

Daniel at Beaumont Legal on the whole managed my case fine. Communication was poor at times and I didn't feel like there was a lot of advice or guidance forthcoming. However, the quality of the information pack and the fee level mean that overall they were decent value for money.. Client, CO7. Rating: rating: 5 stars September, 2013

Ross Coates Solicitors

Josie Quinn was absolutely fantastic she never once hurried me off the phone even when I was probably waffling. She showed a personal intrest in our case, was very proffesionall at all times and quick to sort any discrepancies. She helped make what could have been a very stressful move into something quite enjoyable. I also liked the way I didnt have to wade my way through receptionists to speak to her. Unlike some other organizations were they say hang on a mo whilst I check if their free. she and her colleagues at the kesgrave branch made me feel like nothing was to much trouble , well done girls! Just a little note one unamed representative at the Ipswich branch could learn alot from the staff at kesgrave. As my experience with her was far from good bordering on dam right rude. Could do with a training session in dealing with the public sensitively!. Client, CO7. Rating: rating: 5 stars April, 2011
