Why use a Guiseley Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Guiseley 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.
A good estate agent in Guiseley will be able to advise you on how to best present your property to potential purchasers.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Guiseley property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Guiseley 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 Guiseley purchasers.
A good Guiseley 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 Guiseley 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 Guiseley 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.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Most agents in Guiseley will offer to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. They will show off the property to those viewing it, underlining the most attractive features. Most viewers are more likely to tell an estate agent, than the home owner, what they dislike about a house. The outcome is that if you employ a Guiseley estate agent, you are far more likely to receive honest information about what aspects of your property need fixing up to achieve a faster sale, at the best value.

Do you have dirty carpets? - If you have dirty carpets in your Guiseley 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 typically 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 typically houses a powerful vacuum for a very thorough clean.
Be Realistic About The Current Market - Just like many markets in the UK, the housing market in Guiseley was better in days gone by. You must be sensible with regards to the true value of your property if you're wanting a fast sale. This could prove to be troublesome, especially if you overstretched on your property loan when you originally bought your home. Think about discussing your situation with your IFA, and with your agent to agree a suitable market valuation for your home.
De-Clutter - It’s your home in Guiseley, you’ve lived there for years, it feels like part of you, and you love it. But if you’re selling, then it’s time to move out mentally! Try to pack away as much personal clutter as you can. Leave a few, favourite items out so that the house doesn’t feel like a Guiseley hotel, but otherwise present your viewers with a blank canvas, somewhere that they can imagine making their own.
Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Guiseley 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.

Food For Thought
The UK Credit Crunch Hits The Housing Market Hard
The credit crunch has greatly reduced UK house prices. House prices have decreased drastically since summer 2008, when they peaked. They fell at their rapidest rate for at least twenty five years. They have however now begun a slow recovery. This is still a good time for a first time buyer to consider a purchase, but worrying for those who borrowed more than their property is now worth.
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 Guiseley 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 Guiseley 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.
