Why use a Crigglestone Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Crigglestone 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.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Crigglestone area will give your agent the edge when trying to find a buyer for your property. 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.
A good Crigglestone 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 Crigglestone 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 Crigglestone 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.
Some estate agents in Crigglestone will offer to undertake accompanied viewings on your behalf. The agent will show off your house to those viewing it, drawing attention to the most attractive features. Some viewers are more prone to tell an agent, than the owner, what they find unattractive about a house. This means that if you use a Crigglestone estate agent, you are likely to receive honest information on what aspects of your house need dressing up to get a faster sale, at the highest achievable price.
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. Crigglestone 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 Crigglestone estate agent.

Weed the garden - One of the first things a potential buyer will see when they arrive at your property is the garden. If the garden is scruffy then it will be a bad start, and make the wrong first impression. Pick up litter, cut the lawn and pull / kill any weeds that are growing in or around the path or patio areas. Consider hiring a pressure washer to clean up your path if it's looking really grubby.
Rent Some Storage - If your house is very cluttered, then you may want to consider renting a storage unit in Crigglestone. Removing large, unnecessary articles of furniture and other clutter will give the appearance of larger rooms. Viewers like to see a reasonably blank canvas, that they can really imagine making their own. The disadvantages are the weekly costs of storage, and the double-handling of the furniture, that you will now have to move twice.
De-Clutter - It’s your home in Crigglestone, you’ve lived there for years, it feels like part of you, and you love it. But if you’re selling, then it’s time to move out mentally! Try to pack away as much personal clutter as you can. Leave a few, favourite items out so that the house doesn’t feel like a Crigglestone hotel, but otherwise present your viewers with a blank canvas, somewhere that they can imagine making their own.
Cats and dogs in your garden. - If you're selling your house in Crigglestone then you would be wise to examine your garden for dung deposited by either your pets or neighbour's dogs or cats. When your garden smells like it is used as a toilet, then this can make a bad impression . Always clean up after your own pets, and think about installing anti-dog or cat measures to frighten away and put-off your neighbour's cats and dogs. Please ensure these countermeasures are not harmful to the animals.
