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.
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.
Edinburgh 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 Edinburgh.
Get The Best Value for your Property
Estate agents with experience in Edinburgh have a good understanding of the Edinburgh property market, and will help you with getting the best sale value for your house.
A good Edinburgh 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 Edinburgh 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 Edinburgh 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.

Shop around for a proactive Edinburgh estate agent - If you're putting your Edinburgh property on the market - then it's important to shop around before choosing your Edinburgh estate agent. The Internet affords the luxury of being able to read genuine customer feedback and reviews. For each agent in Edinburgh take the time to search the Internet and get a feel for what other clients are saying about them. You're looking for consistently good feedback. This should give you the confidence that they're going to do a good job for you, and get your property sold. If you come across bad feedback, then take the time to look at how old it is. Have been people been saying nicer things more recently? After all, if an agency had bad feedback in the past - and has improved, they could still be the best choice for you.
Pet 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 Edinburgh viewers. Consider calling in a local Edinburgh cleaning specialist to revive carpets.
Take Energy Efficiency Seriously - If you are placing your home on the market then Edinburgh purchasers are likely to be hunting for energy efficient homes, as these properties should be less expensive to run, and simpler to re-sell . A good Edinburgh estate agent should be able to advise you on this matter and point you in the right direction for converting your house to be increasingly energy efficient. The selling process now requires that an energy assessment professional will visit and assess your home for its current and future achievable Energy Efficiency Rating and an existing and achievable Environmental (CO2) Impact Score. This certification is needed prior to placing your property on the market.
Gloss Work - Tired looking Gloss Work (such as doors, door frames and skirting boards) can make a property look shabby. Try to bring it all back to a shine with a damp cloth.

Food For Thought
Variances in Legal Fees - Why do prices vary from solicitor to solicitor?
Why is it that there is so much of a difference in solicitors fees when it comes to purchasing and selling property? You are asking a very good question, and I'm certain that you're pondering whether it has something to do with the standard of service? Surprisingly, the answer is largely NOT AT ALL. The rule is : you only get what you pay for. This is not the case in this circumstance. It really does depend on the size of the solicitor's operation. There are solicitors that only work with property related cases, and on a massive scale. They specialise and are very highly experienced and can pass on large cost reductions to their customers.
Advertising Your House
Advertising in local newspapers is gradually being replaced by the modern use of the World Wide Web and by estate agencies in Edinburgh owning and advertising websites of their own ownership. If a current purchaser is seeking to purchase a house in the Edinburgh location, they are highly likely to look for homes on the Internet
