Get The Best Price for your House
Experienced Estate agents in Fife understand the Fife house marketplace, and should assist you with getting the highest selling price for your property.
The Right Value
A Fife-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Fife.
Most estate agents in Fife may offer to do accompanied viewings on your behalf. The agent will show off the house to those viewing it, underlining all of the most attractive features. Most viewers are increasingly likely to tell an estate agent, than the home owner, what they don’t like about a property. This means that if you employ a Fife agent, you are likely to get honest information about what details of your property need dressing up to get a faster sale, and at the best price.

Find a good conveyancing solicitor for Fife conveyancing - If you're selling or buying property in Fife then you're going to need a good solicitor to do your conveyancing. The solicitor doesn't need to be local to Fife 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. Fife conveyancing doesn't need to cost the earth!
Make your home energy Efficient - If you're marketing your home for sale then Fife purchasers will be looking around for energy efficient homes, as these homes will be cheaper to run, and easier to re-sell at a later date. A good Fife property agency should be equipped to advise you on this matter and direct you to the right resources for converting your home to be more energy efficient. It is a requirement that an energy efficiency assessor will come and assess your property for its current and achievable Energy Efficiency Score and an existing and potential Environmental (CO2) Impact Rating. This assessment is needed prior to advertising your property.
Rent Some Storage - If your house is very cluttered, then you may want to consider renting a storage unit in Fife. 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.
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.

Food For Thought
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.
Is Selecting An Estate Agent Comparable to Making a Wager in A Horse Race?
One particular professional estate agent in Fife thinks that choosing the right agent is just like placing a bet on a horse - in their case, that agent being THE FAVOURITE TO WIN. They were heard to state that backing the favourite to win may cost you more but the odds on getting the desired result - A WIN, are greater. Consider this advice if you're thinking about choosing an estate agent in the Fife locality.
