Should I use a Edinburgh solicitor for my conveyancing?
There's no real need to use a solicitor located in Edinburgh to do your conveyancing. Your whole case can be managed efficiently by post, email and telephone.
Why use a Edinburgh Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Edinburgh 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.
Good Local Knowledge
An estate agent or letting agent in Edinburgh is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Edinburgh property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Edinburgh estate agent will be able to guide you towards a price that strikes the right balance between being attractive to both you and any potential Edinburgh purchasers.
The property buying and selling process is a complex one and can be very daunting, especially for first time sellers. Your estate agent will be able to guide you through the process of selling your home - and explain all of the steps. Some estate agents even have an Independent Financial Adviser in-branch who can help you with any financial questions you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.
You local Edinburgh 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.

Molehills And Ants Nests - If your garden suffers from Mole Hills or ants nests, then take appropriate action to eliminate these pests (humanely, of course). These garden pests could be off-putting to Edinburgh property buyers.
Find a good conveyancing solicitor for Edinburgh conveyancing - If you're selling or buying property in Edinburgh then you're going to need a good solicitor to do your conveyancing. The solicitor doesn't need to be local to Edinburgh to do your conveyancing. In-fact, you'll get a much better deal by using a solicitor that is geared up to deal with large volumes, rather than using someone local. Edinburgh conveyancing doesn't need to cost the earth!
Renew Scruffy Flooring - Linoleum flooring in bathrooms and kitchens can often look very bedraggled after years of use. It is inexpensive to replace. Consider renewing it if it looks worse for wear.
Clean your windows - If your windows or mirrors are looking grubby, consider mixing some white spirit vinegar with a little water and washing up liquid, popping the mixture in a spray-bottle and giving your windows and mirrors a clean. (use this cleaning tip at your own peril!). The washing liquid will act as a de-greaser and the vinegar will act as an anti-foamer / streaker. Grubby windows or mirrors will create a bad impression on Edinburgh property buyers.

Food For Thought
Advice for Those Buying A Property
Any estate agent in Edinburgh could claim to have a large number of prospective buyers on their books but you must establish what actions are taken to qualify those buyers as suitable to view and go ahead to buy your property. A good percentage of applicants may indicate a passing interest in your property however an experienced property agent will pick out those applicants who have a real need to move and will therefore be showing serious intention to view your house.
When will I have to pay money out?
As a seller, you will have to pay for a Home Information Pack before marketing can begin. Once you have secured a sale, your Edinburgh solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. The balance of the money from the sale will come to you on the day of completion. The solicitor will take their fee out at this stage, as will the Edinburgh Estate Agent. As a buyer, your solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. On Exchange of Contracts, you will be asked by your solicitor to provide 5% or 10% of the purchase price. On the day of completion, your mortgage money will come in to your solicitor who will pass it on to the seller.
