Why use a Kelso Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Kelso 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
People viewing a property can often be an unkind bunch, marching all over the house like celebreties, making unkind opinions and pulling unhappy faces. Even perhaps the nicest houses are sometimes in for criticism, just because the first's preference is another person's dislike. So it is perhaps best to let a Kelso property agent show viewers about your house - and leave it to them to filter back any worthwhile comments. Nobody likes to have their house disrespected by visitors.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Kelso property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Kelso 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 Kelso purchasers.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Many agents in Kelso will offer to undertake accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. They will big-up the property to viewers, underlining all of the most attractive attributes. Most viewers are increasingly prone to tell an estate agent, than the property owner, what they don’t like about a house. The result of this is that if you use a Kelso agent, you are likely to receive honest feedback about what details of your property need fixing up to achieve a quick sale, and at the highest value.
The Right Value
A Kelso-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Kelso.

Scrub Up - Don’t be afraid to get out your favourite cleaning products and really get stuck into those tired areas of your property. The ’nearly new’ look of kitchen units, appliances and bathroom furniture will really go down well with Kelso buyers.
Open Some Windows - Consider opening some windows for a couple of hours before a viewing. If it's a hot stuffy day, the leave them open, if it's cold then close them. In either case, this should help to give the property a nice fresh feeling when sellers come to view.
Get Painting - Consider some fresh paint. There’s a good reason why new builds in Kelso are usually presented in magnolia and white. The light colours make rooms look bigger and cleaner. White paint, in particular, makes kitchens and bathrooms look spick and span. Remember, that dark purple that you painted your bedroom in, that you totally love, may not be to Kelso buyer’s liking!
Clean the attic - remove all the clutter. - Some applicants will want to take a look in the loft space. If it is cluttered full of junk that has the appearance that it may remain there then this can be very off-putting. In addition, a clear empty attic will look like it could have the potential to be converted.

Food For Thought
When a price is agreed for a property, what happens next?
If you have not already done so, you should instruct a solicitor immediately. You should then give the contact details to your estate agent. The estate agent will then write to all interested parties to get the ball rolling.
Should I Use A Web-Based Agent?
Perhaps you've observed there is an increasing number of "Internet" based property agents starting up. These are basically agents that don't own a shop front and in preference use the WWW to showcase their property stock. These estate agencies can sometimes heavily out-compete traditional property agents. However, there are a few very things of importance to look out for ... Does the agent advertise in the press? Do they upload your home onto Rightmove? Does the agent offer managed property viewings? Should these things not be of consequence to you, then carry on and save a lot of money!
