Why use a Heath Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Heath 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 proud of our houses
Those desiring to view your home may well be an insensitive bunch, marching all over the house like celebreties, offering rude comments and pulling unhappy facial expressions. Even perhaps the best decorated homes are in for criticism, simply because one person's preference is another person's dislike. For this reason it's perhaps best if you let a Heath estate agent show property viewers around your property - and leave them to feed back any noteworthy comments. No one enjoys having their house disrespected by visitors.
In The Know
A good Heath 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.
You local Heath Estate Agents will always be available, by telephone or email, to deal with enquiries about your property. If you try to DIY your house sale then you are likely to miss may opportunities because you are unlikely to be available to field enquiries.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Heath area will give your agent the edge when trying to find a buyer for your property. They will know the location of local amenities, the local schools, which areas are well thought of and the pricing and sales trends. They will also be able to advise you of the best price that can be achieved in the area if various improvements are made to a property, and how much to reduce by to get a fast sale.

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 Heath garden center. These will help to make you property look cheerful and attractive on first impressions.
Do Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Heath? If so, you may want to take a good, objective look around. How many small, simple jobs are there that you haven't bothered getting around to doing? The problem is that we become blind to the small flaws after a while (apart from the ones that annoy us), whereas an observant newcomer to your home will spot them straight away. We're talking about curling wall-paper, or borders just need sticking down; Marks on walls, that need wiping off; Dead flies or dust on a lamp-shade; Dirty windows; Old screw-holes in walls that need filling and touching up. Now is the time to put a day aside to do these little jobs, and help achieve the best price for you property.
Conveyancing - When you are buying or selling Heath property, then one expense that is difficult to avoid is the legal cost. It really isn't a good idea to cut out the solicitor, as conveyancing is a complex process, and there are many pitfalls. The good news is this: There is no good reason to use a local solicitor - and AgentQuote.co.uk can help to find you a quality national solicitor who will do the work for a much cheaper price.
Become Energy Efficient - If you are placing your home on the market then Heath applicants are likely to be looking around for homes with energy efficiency, as these houses should be less expensive to run, and easier to sell . A savvy Heath estate agency will be equipped to advise you on this matter and point you in the right direction for converting your house to be increasingly energy efficient. The selling process now requires that an energy efficiency assessor will come and assess your home for a current and achievable Energy Efficiency Rating and an existing and achievable Environmental (CO2) Impact Score. This assessment is necessary prior to marketing your property.

Food For Thought
Is there are way to speed the process up?
If you are selling your property, you should get your documents and paperwork to your property lawyer as soon as is possible. Doing this will allow your case to move forward more quickly. The same advice also applies to buyers. They should also put as much effort as possible into the arrangement of the property loan as this is tyically the item that consumes the longest time.
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 Heath 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 Heath 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.
