Why use a Fife Estate Agent?

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.
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.

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.
Do you have dirty carpets? - If you have dirty carpets in your Fife property then it could really put off potential buyers and reduce your selling price. It's well worth calling in a local carpet cleaning firm to give them a good cleaning. They normally come to your home with a van and very long hoses and thoroughly steam and/or water clean your carpets - giving them a new lease of life. The van normally houses a powerful vacuum for a very thorough clean.
Get Painting - Consider some fresh paint. There’s a good reason why new builds in Fife are normally 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 absolutely love, may not be to Fife buyer’s liking!
Tidy Up - Make sure that rooms are clean and tidy, especially bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen.

Food For Thought
The Value of Local Knowledge
Applicants almost always have a preference to appoint local experts who they regard as being 'with an ear to the ground'. so choose a long established and respected local estate agent in or near to Fife to market your house.
Agents Commission Rates Explained
Many property sellers are unaware of the differing commission rates that Fife agents will charge to sell your property. It is a known fact that not all Fife agencies charge the same rates and there is a good reason for this - so do not make your choice of agent based on just the price. A number of Fife agents could quote you standard rates but evaluating the property, could arrive at the conclusion that the property may be more troublesome to market than their typical houses because it is in a bad area or bad state of repair meaning increased marketing costs and effort. Conversely, some agents may quote a lower than normal commission if they think that they can move your house without much effort and with great speed. Some Fife estate agents do not suffer with the running costs of larger agencies who have invested heavily in town centre branches, top-level staff training, complex database systems and top-of-the-range marketing collateral and resources. That's not to imply that low cost commission charges will deliver low quality customer service and professional standards because one can at times experience inadequate service when dealing with larger firms too. Cut price Fife estate agents usually require a higher turnover of properties in order to survive and they are as a consequence less likely to show concern about achieving the best value for their vendors. The net total of the post-sale money in your pocket is clearly of greater importance than the percentage fee your Fife estate agent has invoiced in commission fees.
