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.
Use An Expert
If you desire to have a go at something complicated then it's prudent to seek expert advice, or to find an expert to complete the task for you. Selling or buying property in Fife is not an exception to this rule. A significant number of property sales or purchases can be very trouble-free, but others are not. Should a difficult item pops up during the process, then you will be glad of the guidance and expert knowledge of your agent.
Because Fife estate agents are good at marketing
Fife estate agents are experts at marketing houses. Not everyone is born a sales man or woman - and the business of selling is usually something an expert should do. Your property agent should have the knowledge to take appealing protographs of your property, the methods required to write up an appealing description of it and the best outlets to market those details to obtain the most enquiries.
Because we are all proud of our houses
People viewing a property can often be an insensitive bunch, marching around the house like celebreties, making unplesant assessments and making discontented faces. Even perhaps the nicest houses are in for a bashing, just for the reason that the first's like is another person's dislike. So it's perhaps best if you let a Fife property agent take viewers around your property - and leave them to filter back to you any worthwhile comments. No one enjoys having their house picked on by strangers.
Get The Higher Price for your Property
Estate agents with experience in Fife will have a thorough understanding of the Fife house marketplace, and will assist you with achieving the highest selling price for your home.

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.
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 bedraggled 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.
Gloss Work - Tired looking Gloss Work (such as doors, door frames and skirting boards) can make a property look shabby. Try to bring it all back to a shine with a damp cloth.
Be choosy about photographs. - Your estate agency (or yourself - if you choose to engage the sell your own property method) will need to take photographs of the inside and exterior of the property. This is a requirement to have it displayed in a winsome fashion on the Web, and in property brochures. Ensure that every photograph advertises the house or room to the very best extent. In addition, make certain that the angle and light source produces a cheerful and attractive image. Hide as much junk and clutter as you can before taking photos of a room or garden area - excess ornamentation will cause your house to appear smaller and messy. Try to avoid photographs with family members, cats or stains in them!

Food For Thought
What are searches?
As part of the process of purchasing your property, the solicitor you appoint will conduct searches on your behalf. (You must pay for these). The searches relate to the property you are buying - and check for various things. Is the current ownership of the property all in order? Is the seller in a legally sound position to do so? Is the environment OK (toxic ground, tree preservation orders, radon gas, flood-prone etc.). Is the land registered? What are the status of the mains water supply, drainage and sewerage? Are there mines or mining activity affecting the property? And so on. The purpose of the searches is to ensure that you are buying a property legally, and with no nasty surprises.
Does my slicitor have to be located in Fife?
It's a good question - and the simplest answer is "Not at all". In out modern society most conveyancing solicitors are ready to act in a matter of conveyancing in any town in England or Wales. All correspondence is done via email, post and telephone. By employing an "Out of Town" conveyancer who specialises in the conveyancing process, you could well save a lot of money.
