Why use a Kidlington Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Kidlington 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 Value
A Kidlington-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Kidlington.
Find Good Advice
A Kidlington estate agent will be able to answer any questions or queries you might have in relation to the purchase or sales procedure.
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. Kidlington 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 Kidlington estate agent.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Kidlington 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.

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 Kidlington property buyers.
Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Kidlington 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 Kidlington? 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 Kidlington 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
Agents Charge Rates Disambiguated
The vast majority of sellers are not aware of the disparate commission rates that Kidlington estate agents will charge to sell your property. It is a well established fact that not all Kidlington estate agencies charge identical fees and there's a very good reason for this - so don't make your selection of agency on just the price. A number of Kidlington estate agents may quote you standard prices but evaluating your property, may conclude that the property is more difficult to market than their typical houses because it is in a bad area or bad state of repair meaning more marketing costs and sales effort. Conversely, some agents may quote a smaller than usual commission if they think that they can sell your house without much effort and quickly. A number of Kidlington estate agents may not suffer with the overheads of bigger agencies who have made high levels of investment in town centre branches, high quality training for staff, sophisticated computer software and top-of-the-range marketing materials and resources. That's not to say that low cost commission charges will manifest in cut-down customer service and professional standards because you can at times experience inadequate service when dealing with bigger chain firms too. Cut price Kidlington agents typically require a higher turnover of properties in order to trade profitably and they are as a result far less prone to be concerned with regards to achieving the best price for their customers. The final total of the after sale proceeds in your pocket is surely more important than the commission your Kidlington estate agent has charged in commission fees.
Not All Property Agencies Are Of the same quality
Not all estate agents are identical. When you are selecting a Kidlington agency to sell your property it is well worth asking many things. How much will they charge? Do they do viewings on your behalf? Are they professional? What do their property hand-outs and window brochures look like? What are the elective extras that you may have to pay for to have? How frequently will your property appear in your area's property post? What is their buyer's book looking like? Are they dressed for business? These are questions well worth asking prior to engaging them. Don't forget, you should be searching for the widest offering of sales services for the best cost.
