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.
If you want to have a go at a complex task then it is typically prudent to either seek advice from an expert, or to hunt down an expert to complete the work for you. Selling or buying property in Kelso is not an exception to the rule. A percentage of property purchases or sales can prove to be very easy, but others are not. Should a difficult item comes up as part of the process, then you will be glad of the sound advice and expertise of your estate agent.
Although you may be confident that you're more than capable of managing the sale of your own property, the truth of the matter is that many of us have precious little spare time. Kelso applicants will not appreciate having to arrange viewings around your schedule. In all likelihood you will achieve a faster sale if you use a good Kelso estate agent.
A good Kelso 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 Kelso property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Usually an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Kelso 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.
Achieve The Higher Price for your House
Estate agents with experience in Kelso will have a thorough understanding of the Kelso house market, and will assist you with getting the highest price for your property.

Make some coffee - Most people love the smell of brewing coffee, even if they don't like to drink it. Consider putting on some fresh coffee just before a viewing, it's sure to create a welcoming odour for those Kelso viewers!
Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Kelso 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.
Do Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Kelso? 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.
Do you have dirty carpets? - If you have dirty carpets in your Kelso 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 usually 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 usually houses a powerful vacuum for a very thorough clean.

Food For Thought
The Business Structure
Question if it is be better to select an estate agency in Kelso that is owned and operated by experts who are predominantly dedicated to the sale of your property rather than by people who are simply working as part of a large corporate-firm consolidation exercise? Ensure that you are able to correspond at Partner level should you need to.
Buy And Refurbish In A Risky Market
I question how many people got caught seriously in the dip in the marketplace, when they bought a house at what looked like a bargain price, spent thousands of pounds doing it up, in the vain chance of selling it on at a return. Very many, I'm in no doubt! The question is... is there still riches to be made? How can the chance be minimized? When you catch sight of a possible house, go return with a Kelso estate agent, or a few, and get hold of an expert estimation. How much is the property in reality worth nowadays? What would its value be if it was made up to a good quality state? Locate a builder who is used to subbing out the numerous aspects of the renovation trade, and get a accurate quote for the restoration work. Now work out your possible profit, and gauge how dreadfully the market would need to downward spiral to erase that revenue, and land you in arrears. Now you should have a satisfactory assessment of the risk. Don't forget... it's simple to begin going in excess of budget on the renovation. Make allowances for this! These are just several suggestions... not advice! Good luck!
