Should I use a Colchester solicitor for my conveyancing?

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 requires a particular personality to be a good sales person. It requires character, charisma, a certain manner, and in some cases the right looks. These are simply attributes that some of us find in short supply. Hopefully your local Colchester estate agent will posses the attributes of a top sales man or woman, and close the sale for you faster and at a better price than you could achieve if you tried to sell your own property!

Agent Accompanied Viewings

Some agents in Colchester will offer to undertake accompanied viewings on your behalf. They will show-off the property to viewers, drawing attention to the best attributes. Some viewers are more likely to tell an estate agent, than the property owner, what they find unattractive about a house. The outcome is that if you use a Colchester estate agent, you are likely to receive honest feedback on what aspects of your house need dressing up to achieve a faster sale, and at the highest achievable price.

Because we are all very proud of our houses

Those desiring to view your home can often be an insensitive group, marching all over the house like celebreties, making unplesant assessments and making unhappy facial expressions. Even perhaps the most well kept houses are sometimes in for a bashing, just for the reason that the first's preference is some other person's non-preference. For this reason it's perhaps for the better if you let a Colchester property agent show property viewers about your property - and leave them to feed back to you any worthwhile feedback. Nobody likes to have their house disrespected 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.

Selling Tips

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.

Open Some WindowsOpen Some Windows - Consider opening some windows for a couple of hours before a viewing. If it's a hot stuffy day, the leave them open, if it's cold then close them. In either case, this should help to give the property a nice fresh feeling when sellers come to view.

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).

Will selling a property in Colchester need a Colchester conveyancing solicitor?Will selling a property in Colchester need a Colchester conveyancing solicitor? - Will selling a property in Colchester need Colchester conveyancing solicitor? This is an excellent question. Many people in Colchester may mistakenly think that they need a Colchester solicitor to do their conveyancing. The reality is this, that your conveyancing solicitor does not need to be local. Some Colchester solicitors choose only to deal with Colchester property transactions, or other properties very nearby. Other conveyancers will choose to handle transactions from all over the UK. Their quality of service will in no way be less than a local solicitor. It may well be better, as they specialize in conveyancing. It is also likely that their prices will be more competitive.

Food For Thought

When should I instruct a solicitor?
Some Colchester solicitors offer a "no sale, no fee" service so there is no risk in instructing such solicitors before you have agreed a sale or purchase. In fact, as a seller, it is better to start the process early so that paperwork etc can be prepared in readiness for a sale. As a buyer, you can also instruct a Colchester "no sale, no fee" solicitor as there is no risk in doing so. In fact, when you make an offer on a property, your position looks stronger if you have a solicitor already in place.
Choosing the Right Colchester Agent.
When you decide to sell your home, how do you choose the best property agent? There is typically a wide choice of estate agents in the Colchester area and that the majority appear to offer a similar range of estate agency services. There is, however, much more to the path to selling your property than simply finding a buyer for it. It is therefore imperative that you make the choice of the right estate agent for you, your property and the situation you are in. A good place to start is to select an estate agent who clearly understands the difficulties that are present when selling your house; one who is accepting that you would most likely wish to sell your property with the least amount of bother and for the most attractive figure achievable in the current market within a realistic time scale. It is not unheard of estate agents to make unrealistic claims and rash promises and in the light of this we offer our own advice on finding the best Colchester estate agent.

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
