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.
Good Local Knowledge
An estate agent or letting agent in Fife is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.
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.
Achieve The Higher Price for your House
Estate agents with experience in Fife understand the Fife property market, and will help you with getting the highest selling price for your property.
Because we're all proud of our homes
Those desiring to view your home may well be an unkind bunch, stalking around the house like royalty, making rude opinions and making unhappy faces. Even perhaps the most well kept homes are sometimes in for criticism, just because the first's like is another person's non-preference. For this reason it is perhaps best if you let a Fife estate agent take property viewers about your house - and leave it to them to feed back any noteworthy comments. Nobody enjoys having their house picked on by visitors.

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.
Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Fife property on the market, then you may want to consider getting your garden fences painted / repaired.
Privacy is an important issue for many house buyers, and a tidy, secure, well-maintained boundary with neighbouring properties will be a big plus, rather than "another job that will need doing".
In the same manner, ensure that hedges and trees are trimmed and tidy.
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 bigger 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.
Sort out your lighting. - A bad lighting scheme can very much undersell your Fife property. Consider sorting your lighting out. Consult a specialist if you need to. Dark rooms can look small and poky. Rooms that are too bright can look harsh and unwelcoming. Very bright light will show up all marks, dirt, stains and dust.

Food For Thought
Is it more prudent to make use of a locally based Fife property lawyer?
generally speaking, this will prove to be a far more expensive choice. If you feel as though you are required to be able to walk into an office to talk a case through, then it is probably better to pay the additional costs for the privilege of using a locally based solicitor. Remember, an increasing number of conveyancing transactions these days are dealt with at a distance as purchasers and sellers make use of competitive legal fees. More folks now instruct a conveyancer by means of the World Wide Web than those who have been recommended a solicitor by a family member.
Estate Agents Charge Rates Disambiguated
The vast majority of vendors are not aware of the differing rates of commission that Fife estate agents will charge to sell your property. It is a known fact that not all Fife agencies charge identical fees and there is a good reason for this - so do not make your decision based on price alone. Some Fife estate agents may quote you their standard charges but after visiting the property, may arrive at the conclusion that the property may be more troublesome to sell than their typical houses because it is in a bad area or bad state of repair warranting more marketing costs and effort. on the other hand, some agents could quote a lower than usual rate if they conclude that they can move your house without much effort and with great speed. Some Fife estate agents simply do not have the running costs of larger firms who have made high levels of investment in high street branches, high quality training for staff, complex database software and top-of-the-range marketing materials and resources. That is not to say that low price commission charges will manifest in poor customer service and professional standards because you can at times experience inadequate service when employing larger chain firms too. low price Fife agents typically require a larger turnover of stock to trade profitably and they are as a consequence far less likely to be concerned with regards to achieving the best value for their clients. The final amount of the post-sale money in your bank account is clearly more important than the commission your Fife estate agent has invoiced you in commission fees.
