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.
Find Sound Advice
A Fife property agent should be able to give an answer to any questions you may have in relation to the purchase or sales process.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Most estate agents in Fife will give the option to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. They will big-up your property to those viewing it, underlining all of the most attractive attributes. Some viewers are more likely to tell an estate agent, than the property owner, what they hate about a property. The result of this is that if you use a Fife estate agent, you are far more likely to get honest feedback on what aspects of your house need changine to achieve a fast sale, and at the best achievable value.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Fife property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Fife 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 Fife purchasers.
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.

Will selling a property in Fife need a Fife conveyancing solicitor? - Will selling a property in Fife need Fife conveyancing solicitor? This is an excellent question. Many people in Fife may mistakenly think that they need a Fife solicitor to do their conveyancing. The reality is this, that your conveyancing solicitor does not need to be local. Some Fife solicitors choose only to deal with Fife property transactions, or other properties very nearby. Other conveyancers will choose to handle transactions from all over the UK. Their quality of service will in no way be less than a local solicitor. It may well be better, as they specialize in conveyancing. It is also likely that their prices will be more competitive.
Tidy Up - Make sure that rooms are clean and tidy, especially bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen.
Open Some Windows - Consider opening some windows for a couple of hours before a viewing. If it's a hot stuffy day, the leave them open, if it's cold then close them. In either case, this should help to give the property a nice fresh feeling when sellers come to view.
Do Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Fife? If so, you may want to take a good, objective look around. How many small, simple jobs are there that you haven't bothered getting around to doing? The problem is that we become blind to the small flaws after a while (apart from the ones that annoy us), whereas an observant newcomer to your home will spot them straight away. We're talking about curling wall-paper, or borders just need sticking down; Marks on walls, that need wiping off; Dead flies or dust on a lamp-shade; Dirty windows; Old screw-holes in walls that need filling and touching up. Now is the time to put a day aside to do these little jobs, and help achieve the best price for you property.

Food For Thought
The UK Credit Crunch Hits The Housing Market Hard
The credit crunch has greatly reduced UK house prices. Residential property prices have decreased significantly since summer 2008, when they were at their peak. They fell at their rapidest rate for 25 years. They have now started to recover. This is still a good time for first time buyers to consider a purchase, but worrying for those who borrowed more than their property is now worth.
Internet Conveyancing Quote Comparison Service v Appointing A solicitor local to you
Let us be agreed respecting truth that the majority of people do not require the expertise of a solicitor for the purpose of transfer of title, in the local area of Fife, on a regular basis. It's only typically a service that the vast majority of people require only two or three times in their lifetime; therefore, why should one expect a consistent service over so many years? Simply because a conveyancer offered a good service 15 years ago, it doesn't necessarily follow that their quality of service is still good or that that it is still reasonably priced. It is well worth comparing conveyancing quotes using the Internet when such a large saving of cost can be achieved by engaging a conveyancing solicitor using the Internet.
