Why use a Fife Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Fife 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.
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 queries you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.
Use An Expert
If you desire to have a go at a complex task then it's prudent to get advice from an expert, or to get an expert to do the work on your behalf. Selling or buying property in Fife is not an exception to this rule. A percentage of property transactions can prove to be very straightforward, but others are not. Should a problematic issue pops up as part of the process, you will be glad of the sound guidance and expert knowledge of your agent.
In The Know
A good Fife 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.
Some agents in Fife may offer to undertake accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. They will big-up the property to those viewing it, underlining the best attributes. Most viewers are more likely to tell an agent, than the home owner, what they hate about a house. The outcome is that if you employ a Fife estate agent, you are far more likely to receive honest feedback about what details of your property need dressing up to get a faster sale, and at the best value.

Scrub Up - Don’t be afraid to get out your favourite cleaning products and really get stuck into those tired areas of your property. The ’nearly new’ look of kitchen units, appliances and bathroom furniture will really go down well with Fife buyers.
Go Potty - It is said that first impressions last. If you property will allow for it, why not invest in some fragrant, colorful and attractive potted flowers or plants from a Fife garden center. These will help to make you property look cheerful and attractive on first impressions.
Renew Scruffy Flooring - Linoleum flooring in bathrooms and kitchens can often look very ragged after years of use. It is inexpensive to replace. Consider renewing it if it looks worse for wear.
De-Clutter - It’s your home in Fife, you’ve lived there for years, it feels like part of you, and you love it. But if you’re selling, then it’s time to move out mentally! Try to pack away as much personal clutter as you can. Leave a few, favourite items out so that the house doesn’t feel like a Fife hotel, but otherwise present your viewers with a blank canvas, somewhere that they can imagine making their own.

Food For Thought
Not All Property Agents Are The Same
Not all estate agencies are Equal. When you are making your choice of a Fife estate agency to market and sell your property it is important to ask many things. How much will they charge? Are viewings attended? Are they professional? What do their property brochures and window brochures look like? What are the optional additional services that you could have to pay for to benefit from? How regularly will your property appear in your local property listings? What is their applicant book looking like? Do they make you feel confident? All of these questions well worth asking prior to employing them. Do not forget, you are hunting for the widest spread of sales services for the cheapest commission charge.
Beware Overvaluing Your Home
Overvaluing a home is a notorious trick that some Fife property agents will apply in order to make an impact on you to get your listing order. Therefore, do not fall into the trap of simply choosing the Fife estate agent with the highest estimation since an high-priced home will have a tendency to interest the wrong type of buyers to your Fife property and the desirable buyers may never get to see it. This practice can result in the house lingering stationary on the Fife housing market. This can also lead to the property having to be subsequently reduced decreasing under its accurate market worth. The issue of obtaining a proper valuation is thus paramount to the selling process. It is essential that you employ a Fife property agent who not only has a track record of successful sales in Fife but also has a complete working familiarity of current buyer activity and who can understand and communicate prevailing market trends to your benefit.
