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.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Edinburgh 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.
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.
The Right Value
A Edinburgh-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Edinburgh.
In The Know
A good Edinburgh estate agent will already have a shortlist of potential buyers (applicants) on their books, who may immediately want to view your property. This could result in a quick sale.

Spend Up To 1% - It is often advised that a seller should consider spending up to 1% of the sale value of the property on re-decoration, D.I.Y. and / or touching-up to achieve the best price. You should discuss this with a local Edinburgh specialist adviser or Edinburgh estate agent. A good Edinburgh estate agent may be able to point you in the right direction.
Clean 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).
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 unkempt 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.
Keep Pressurising The Estate Agent - It is unwise to rely on your agency to make a sufficient effort when drafting the marketing brochure and creating your window display poster. Always look very carefully at what they have created and do not be afraid to insist that they make alterations to these materials if you decide that they simply have not tried their best. Look for bad spelling and grammar. Make Certain that all of the details are accurate.

Food For Thought
Does my solicitor need to be situated in Edinburgh?
It's a good question - and the simple answer is "No". In the modern society almost all conveyancing solicitors are setup to process conveyancing in any town in England or Wales. All communication is done via email, telephone and post. By using an "Out of Town" conveyancer who is a specialist in conveyancing, you could well save a lot of money.
Should I Use A Web-Based Agent?
Maybe you've observed that there is an ever increasing number of Web based agents popping up. These are basically agents that do not own a traditional high-street premises and make use of the WWW to sell their property stock. These estate agents can often thoroughly out-price traditional high-street estate agents. However, there are a number of important things to look out for ... Does the agent advertise in your paper? Do they put your property onto Rightmove? Does the agent facilitate managed viewings? Should these things not be important to you, then carry on and save yourself a packet!
