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, 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.


Although you may be confident that you're more than capable of managing the sale of your own property, the truth of the matter is that many of us have precious little spare time. Colchester applicants will not appreciate having to arrange viewings around your schedule. In all likelihood you will achieve a faster sale if you use a good Colchester estate agent.

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.

Colchester Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People

It requires a particular personality to be a good sales person. It takes character, charisma, a certain manner, and in some cases good looks. These are simply things that many of us lack. With any luck your Colchester estate agent will be in possession the criteria of a good sales person, and close the sale for you faster and at a superior price than you could manage on your own!

Years Of Experience

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.

Selling Tips

Clean your windowsClean your windows - You should be able to clean your ground-floor windows, frames and sills easily - and a professional window-cleaner won't be expensive to get the upper floor windows done too. To make the best possible impression get your windows cleaned to a shine. Make sure your window ledges are tidy and that curtains and blinds are neatly arranged. If you have net curtains, consider giving them a clean (or your actual curtains if they're looking grubby).

Clear out the loft - dump all the clutter.Clean out the loft - get rid of all the clutter. - Some applicants will ask to take a peek in your loft space. If it is stuffed to the brim with junk that look likes it may not be removed then this may well be very off putting. Also, a clear empty attic will look like it may have loft-conversion potential.

Do you have dirty carpets?Do you have dirty carpets? - If you have dirty carpets in your Colchester property then it could really put off potential buyers and reduce your selling price. It's well worth calling in a local carpet cleaning firm to give them a good cleaning. They typically come to your home with a van and very long hoses and thoroughly steam and/or water clean your carpets - giving them a new lease of life. The van typically houses a powerful vacuum for a very thorough clean.

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.

Food For Thought

Is it more prudent to choose a local Colchester solicitor?
generally speaking, this will be a significantly more costly choice. If you feel as though you must walk into the solicitor's office and speak with them, then it is far better to pay the additional costs to use a local property solicitor. Do not forget, more and more property transactions in this day and age are being transacted remotely as purchasers and sellers take advantage of competitive prices. More folks now instruct a property solicitor via the Internet than those that use a word of mouth recommendation.
Estate Agents Fees Explained
Most sellers are unaware of the different rates of commission that Colchester agents will charge for the sale of your home. It is a known fact that not all Colchester agencies charge identical fees and there's a good reason why - so don't make your selection of agency based on just the price. Some Colchester estate agents could quote you their standard rates but looking at your house, could arrive at the conclusion that the property may be more troublesome to market than their typical houses because it is in an undesirable area or in a poor state of repair warranting more marketing costs and effort. on the other hand, some estate agents may quote a smaller than normal rate if they think that they can move your property easily and quickly. A number of Colchester agents may not have the overheads of larger agencies who have invested heavily in high street offices, top-level training for staff, sophisticated database systems and professional marketing materials and resources. That is not to imply that low cost commission rates will manifest in low quality customer service and professionalism because one can on occasion experience inadequate service when dealing with larger firms too. Cut price Colchester agents usually need a larger turnover of stock in order to trade profitably and are as a consequence far less prone to show concern with regards to achieving the best value for their vendors. The final amount of the after sale money in your pocket is surely of greater importance than the commission your Colchester agent has invoiced in commission charges.

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
