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.

Because we're all proud of our houses

Property viewers may well be an unkind bunch, marching around the house like royalty, offering rude comments and pulling unhappy faces. Even perhaps the most well kept homes are sometimes in for rough treatement, just for the reason that one person's like is another person's non-preference. For this reason it's perhaps for the better to let a Colchester property agent take viewers about your house - and leave them to feed back any noteworthy critisizm. No one enjoys having their home criticized by strangers.

Missed Opportunities

You local Colchester Estate Agents will always be available, by telephone or email, to deal with enquiries about your property. If you try to DIY your house sale then you are likely to miss may opportunities because you are unlikely to be available to field enquiries.

Good Local Knowledge

An estate agent or letting agent in Colchester is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.

Well Connected

Colchester estate agents have many local industry connections. They may be able to recommend a good local solicitor, mortgage broker, insurance broker or financial adviser in Colchester.

Selling Tips

Be Realistic With Respect To The Current MarketBe Realistic With Respect To Current Market Conditions - As with a lot of markets in the UK, the property marketplace in Colchester is on its knees. You need to be realistic with regards to the true value of your house if you're wanting a quick sale. Finding a buyer might be hard work, especially so if you overstretched on your mortgage when you purchased your property. Consider seeking advice about your circumstances with your Independent Financial Adviser, and with your agent to come to an agreement of a suitable market valuation for your home.

Marketing Your Home Through an Estate AgentMarketing Your Home Through an Estate Agent - Even though you may have thought you'd selected the best estate agent in the town of Colchester, they may have become complacent by relying on their reputation. Always satisfy yourself that they are doing the best job for YOU. Never mind their other clients - it's your home that needs the effort behind it to market and sell it as effectively as possible.

Stay On Top Of Your Estate AgencyBully Your Estate Agent - Do not rely on your property agency to make a sufficient effort when drawing up the sales hand-out and populating your window promotion details. Always examine what they've drafted and do not be reticent to insist that they execute changes to these items if you decide that they have not made enough of an effort. Check spelling and grammatical errors. Make sure that all of the particulars are accurate.

Pet ProblemsPet 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 Colchester viewers. Consider calling in a local Colchester cleaning specialist to revive carpets.

Food For Thought

Selecting the Best Colchester Agent.
When you want to put your house on the market, how should you choose the best agent? There is normally a wide variety of estate agents in the Colchester area and that most appear to offer a very similar range of estate agency services. There is, however, far more to the journey of selling your property than simply attracting a purchaser for it. It is critical that you select the right estate agent for yourself, your home and the situation you are in. The best place to start is to select an agent who can clearly understand the difficulties involved in selling your house; one who is accepting that you would most likely desire to sell your home with the least amount of bother and for the most attractive value that the current market will pay within a realistic time scale. It is not unusual for agents to make misleading claims and broken promises and in the light these tactics we proffer our tips on finding the right Colchester estate agent.
Does my slicitor have to be based in Colchester?
It's a good question - and the simple answer is "No". In the modern society most conveyancers are able to handle conveyancing in any town in England or Wales. All correspondence is satisfactorily achieved via email, post and telephone. By employing an "Non Local" conveyancing solicitor who is a specialist in conveyancing, you could well save a lot of money.

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
