Why use a Fallowfield Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Fallowfield 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 Fallowfield is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.
In The Know
A good Fallowfield 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.
Because we are all proud of our homes
Those desiring to view your home can often be an insensitive bunch, stalking all over the house like royalty, offering unplesant comments and making discontented faces. Even the best decorated homes are in for criticism, just because the first's preference is another person's non-preference. For this reason it is perhaps best to let a Fallowfield property agent take viewers around your home - and leave it to them to feed back to you any worthwhile critisizm. No one likes to have their home criticized by visitors.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Fallowfield property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Fallowfield 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 Fallowfield purchasers.

Get Painting - Consider some fresh paint. There’s a good reason why new builds in Fallowfield are usually presented in magnolia and white. The light colours make rooms look larger and cleaner. White paint, in particular, makes kitchens and bathrooms look spick and span. Remember, that dark purple that you painted your bedroom in, that you completely love, may not be to Fallowfield buyer’s liking!
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 Fallowfield specialist adviser or Fallowfield estate agent. A good Fallowfield estate agent may be able to point you in the right direction.
Neutralise Nasty Odours - If you're trying to sell your Fallowfield property, then perhaps it's time to ask a good friend the question "does my house smell". If you live with unpleasant odours, then you may no longer notice them. Get the blunt opinion of a friend. If there's a problem, don't worry... there are plenty of products on the market to remove nasty smells, rather than cover them up.
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.

Food For Thought
When should I instruct a solicitor?
Some Fallowfield 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 Fallowfield "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.
What are searches?
As part of the process of purchasing your property, the solicitor you appoint will conduct searches on your behalf. (You must pay for these). The searches relate to the property you are buying - and check for various things. Is the current ownership of the property all in order? Is the seller in a legally sound position to do so? Is the environment OK (toxic ground, tree preservation orders, radon gas, flood-prone etc.). Is the land registered? What are the status of the mains water supply, drainage and sewerage? Are there mines or mining activity affecting the property? And so on. The purpose of the searches is to ensure that you are buying a property legally, and with no nasty surprises.
