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 agents are good at marketing

Colchester house sale agents are good at marketing properties. Not every person is born to be a salesman - and the work of getting a sale is typically a job for an expert. Your estate agent will know how to take appealing pictures of your house, how to create a good description of it and the best outlets to market that information to attract the most enquiries.

Agent Accompanied Viewings

Most agents in Colchester may give the option to undertake accompanied viewings on your behalf. They will show-off the property to those viewing it, drawing attention to the best attributes. Most viewers are more prone to tell an agent, than the owner, what they dislike about a property. The outcome is that if you employ the services of a Colchester estate agent, you are far more likely to get honest feedback about what aspects of your property need fixing up to achieve a quick sale, and at the best achievable price.

Colchester Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People

It takes a special kind of person to be a good sales person. It takes charisma, a winsome manner, good character, and in some cases good looks. These are sometimes things that some of us find in short supply. If you're lucky your Colchester real estate agent will posses the criteria of a good sales man or woman, and win a sale faster for you and at a superior price than you could achieve if you tried to sell your own property!

Achieve The Higher Value for your Home

Experienced Estate agents in Colchester have a good understanding of the Colchester house market place, and will assist you with achieving the highest selling price for your house.

Selling Tips

Be particular about photos.Make a fuss over pictures. - Your agent (or you - should you choose to engage the for sale by owner method) will be required to create photographs of both the inside and outside of your house. This is a requirement to have it listed in an attractive manner on the WWW, and in sales particulars. Make sure each picture promotes the house or room to the very best extent. Also ensure that the aspect and lighting creates a cheerful and desirable image. Get shot of as much clutter and junk as you can before taking photos of a room or garden area - excess ornamentation will make your rooms appear less roomy and unattractive. Try to avoid images with people, cats or offensive posters in them!

Do Simple JobsDo Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Colchester? If so, you may want to take a good, objective look around. How many small, simple jobs are there that you haven't bothered getting around to doing? The problem is that we become blind to the small flaws after a while (apart from the ones that annoy us), whereas an observant newcomer to your home will spot them straight away. We're talking about curling wall-paper, or borders just need sticking down; Marks on walls, that need wiping off; Dead flies or dust on a lamp-shade; Dirty windows; Old screw-holes in walls that need filling and touching up. Now is the time to put a day aside to do these little jobs, and help achieve the best price for you property.

Get PaintingGet Painting - Consider some fresh paint. There’s a good reason why new builds in Colchester are usually presented in magnolia and white. The light colours make rooms look bigger and cleaner. White paint, in particular, makes kitchens and bathrooms look spick and span. Remember, that dark purple that you painted your bedroom in, that you completely love, may not be to Colchester buyer’s liking!

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.

Food For Thought

Not All Estate Agencies Are The Same
Not all estate agencies are of the same quality. When you are deciding on a Colchester property agent to sell your property it is prudent to ask many things. What will the charge be? Do they do accompanied viewings? Are they friendly? What do their property brochures and window display brochures appear like? What are the elective additional services that you may have to find money for to have? How often will your home appear in the local property post? What is their applicant book shaping up like? Are they dressed for business? All of these queries well worth firing at your agent before engaging them. Do not forget, you are hunting for the widest collection of options for the most reasonable commission charge.
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.

Customer Reviews & Comments

Ashworth Law (Legal Development Partners t/as)

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

The Legal House

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
