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.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Heath property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Heath 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 Heath purchasers.
Get Expert Advice
A Heath estate agent is qualified to be able to answer any questions you might have about the buying or selling procedure.
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.
Because we're all very proud of our homes
People viewing a property can often be an unkind bunch, stalking all over the house like celebreties, offering rude comments and making unhappy facial expressions. Even the most well kept houses are sometimes in for rough treatement, just for the reason that the first's preference is another person's non-preference. For this reason it is perhaps best if you let a Heath property agent take viewers about your house - and leave them to feed back to you any useful feedback. No one enjoys having their house criticized by visitors.

Molehills And Ants Nests - If your garden suffers from Mole Hills or ants nests, then take appropriate action to eliminate these pests (humanely, of course). These garden pests could be off-putting to Heath property buyers.
Clean your windows - If your windows or mirrors are looking grubby, consider mixing some white spirit vinegar with a little water and washing up liquid, popping the mixture in a spray-bottle and giving your windows and mirrors a clean. (use this cleaning tip at your own peril!). The washing liquid will act as a de-greaser and the vinegar will act as an anti-foamer / streaker. Grubby windows or mirrors will create a bad impression on Heath property buyers.
Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Heath 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.
Neutralise Nasty Odours - If you're trying to sell your Heath property, then perhaps it's time to ask a good friend the question "does my house smell". If you live with unpleasant odours, then you may no longer notice them. Get the blunt opinion of a friend. If there's a problem, don't worry... there are plenty of products on the market to remove nasty smells, rather than cover them up.

Food For Thought
The UK Credit Crunch Hits The Housing Market Hard
The credit crunch has decimated UK house prices. House prices have fallen significantly since summer 2008, when they peaked. They fell at their rapidest rate for at least 25 years. They have however now started to recover. This is still a good time for a first time buyer to consider a purchase, but a headache for owners who borrowed more than their property is now worth.
Agents Charge Rates Disambiguated
Most property sellers are not aware of the differing commission rates that Heath estate agents will charge for selling your property. It is a well established fact that not all Heath agencies charge identical fees and there's a very good reason for this - so don't make your choice of agent on price alone. Some Heath estate agents could quote their standard prices but evaluating the property, may conclude that the property is more difficult to sell than their usual properties because it is in an undesirable area or bad state of repair meaning more marketing costs and sales effort. Conversely, some agents may quote a lower than usual commission if they conclude that they can move your house without much effort and quickly. A number of Heath agents do not suffer with the overheads of larger agencies who have invested heavily in town centre branches, high quality training for staff, complex database systems and top-of-the-range marketing collateral and resources. That's not to imply that low cost commission rates will deliver low quality customer service and professional standards because one can on occasion experience inadequate service when employing bigger firms too. Cut price Heath estate agents usually require a higher turnover of stock to trade profitably and they are as a result far less likely to be concerned with regards to securing the best value for their clients. The final total of the after sale money in your bank account is clearly more important than the percentage fee your Heath agent has invoiced in commission fees.
