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.
Because we are all very proud of our homes
Property viewers can often be an unkind group, stalking around the house like royalty, offering unplesant assessments and pulling discontented facial expressions. Even the best decorated houses are sometimes in for rough treatement, simply because one person's like is another person's dislike. For this reason it is perhaps for the better to let a Fife property agent take property viewers about your house - and leave it to them to feed back any worthwhile feedback. Nobody likes to have their house criticized by visitors.
A good Fife estate agent will be an expert at marketing your property. They will know how to advertise your property in all the right places. Ideally your Fife property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Normally an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Fife property post. Other forms of marketing include window cards, handouts, mail-shots and open-house days. Remember, the frequency and quality of the content of the advertising is just as important as where it appears.

Food For Thought
Is Selecting An Estate Agent Comparable to Making a Wager in A Horse Race?
One particular professional agent in Fife has rumoured to have said that choosing the right agent is comparable to backing a particular horse - in their case, that agent being THE FAVOURITE. They were overheard to say that backing the winner could cost you more but the odds on getting the result you want - A WIN, are greater. Don't neglect this advice if you're thinking about choosing an estate agent in Fife.
When will I have to pay money out?
As a seller, you will have to pay for a Home Information Pack before marketing can begin. Once you have secured a sale, your Fife solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. The balance of the money from the sale will come to you on the day of completion. The solicitor will take their fee out at this stage, as will the Fife Estate Agent. As a buyer, your solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. On Exchange of Contracts, you will be asked by your solicitor to provide 5% or 10% of the purchase price. On the day of completion, your mortgage money will come in to your solicitor who will pass it on to the seller.
