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.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Many estate agents in Kelso may offer to undertake accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. They will show off the house to viewers, underlining all of the best features. Some viewers are more prone to tell an estate agent, than the owner, what they don’t like about a house. The result of this is that if you use a Kelso agent, you are far more likely to get honest feedback about what aspects of your property need fixing to achieve a faster sale, and at the best price.
Because we're all proud of our homes
Property viewers can often be an insensitive group, stalking around the house like royalty, making rude opinions and pulling unhappy faces. Even perhaps the best of houses are in for rough treatement, just for the reason that the first's preference is another person's dislike. For this reason it's perhaps for the better if you let a Kelso property agent show viewers about your house - and leave them to feed back any worthwhile feedback. No one likes to have their house criticized by visitors.
You local Kelso 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.
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.

Pet Problems - If you own pets, then consider re-housing them while your try to sell your home. At the very least, keep them out of sight during viewings, and make sure that you have removed as much trace of them as possible. Cat litter trays, bowls of pet food, pet hairs, stains on carpets and scratched up walls or furniture can be off-putting. There is also the issue of allergies to consider. Many people are allergic to pet hairs and dust. A home that sets off a reaction may put off otherwise keen Kelso viewers. Consider calling in a local Kelso cleaning specialist to revive carpets.
Rent Some Storage - If your house is very cluttered, then you may want to consider renting a storage unit in Kelso. Removing large, unnecessary articles of furniture and other clutter will give the appearance of bigger rooms. Viewers like to see a reasonably blank canvas, that they can really imagine making their own. The disadvantages are the weekly costs of storage, and the double-handling of the furniture, that you will now have to move twice.
Will selling a property in Kelso need a Kelso conveyancing solicitor? - Will selling a property in Kelso need Kelso conveyancing solicitor? This is an excellent question. Many people in Kelso may mistakenly think that they need a Kelso solicitor to do their conveyancing. The reality is this, that your conveyancing solicitor does not need to be local. Some Kelso solicitors choose only to deal with Kelso property transactions, or other properties very nearby. Other conveyancers will choose to handle transactions from all over the UK. Their quality of service will in no way be less than a local solicitor. It may well be better, as they specialize in conveyancing. It is also likely that their prices will be more competitive.
Spend Up To 1% - It is often advised that a seller should consider spending up to 1% of the sale value of the property on re-decoration, D.I.Y. and / or touching-up to achieve the best price. You should discuss this with a local Kelso specialist adviser or Kelso estate agent. A good Kelso estate agent may be able to point you in the right direction.

Food For Thought
Agents Charge Rates Explained
Many sellers are unaware of the disparate rates of commission that Kelso estate agents will charge for the sale of your home. It is a well established fact that not all Kelso agencies charge the same rates and there is a very good reason why - so don't make your decision on just the price. Some Kelso estate agents may quote their standard charges but after visiting your house, may determine that the property is more troublesome to market than their typical properties because it's in an undesirable area or in a poor state of repair warranting more marketing costs and sales effort. Conversely, some estate agents could quote a smaller than usual rate if they think that they can move your house easily and with great speed. A number of Kelso estate agents may not suffer with the overheads of larger agencies who have made high levels of investment in town centre offices, top-level training for staff, sophisticated database systems and professional marketing materials and resources. That is not to imply that low cost commission charges will deliver cut-down customer service and professional standards because one can at times experience inadequacies when employing larger chain firms too. Cut price Kelso estate agents typically need a larger turnover of stock in order to trade profitably and they are as a consequence less prone to show concern with regards to achieving the best price for their clients. The net total of the post-sale money in your bank account is clearly of greater importance than the commission your Kelso agent has invoiced you in commission fees.
When should I instruct a solicitor?
Some Kelso solicitors offer a "no sale, no fee" service so there is no risk in instructing such solicitors before you have agreed a sale or purchase. In fact, as a seller, it is better to start the process early so that paperwork etc can be prepared in readiness for a sale. As a buyer, you can also instruct a Kelso "no sale, no fee" solicitor as there is no risk in doing so. In fact, when you make an offer on a property, your position looks stronger if you have a solicitor already in place.
