Why use a Kilmarnock Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Kilmarnock 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 Kilmarnock-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Kilmarnock.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Kilmarnock property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Kilmarnock 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 Kilmarnock purchasers.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Kilmarnock 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.
A good Kilmarnock 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 Kilmarnock 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 Kilmarnock 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.

Weed the garden - One of the first things a potential buyer will see when they arrive at your property is the garden. If the garden is unkempt then it will be a bad start, and make the wrong first impression. Pick up litter, cut the lawn and pull / kill any weeds that are growing in or around the path or patio areas. Consider hiring a pressure washer to clean up your path if it's looking really grubby.
Sort out your lighting. - A bad lighting scheme can very much undersell your Kilmarnock property. Consider sorting your lighting out. Consult a specialist if you need to. Dark rooms can look small and poky. Rooms that are too bright can look harsh and unwelcoming. Very bright light will show up all marks, dirt, stains and dust.
Do you have dirty carpets? - If you have dirty carpets in your Kilmarnock 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 typically 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 typically houses a powerful vacuum for a very thorough clean.
Gloss Work - Tired looking Gloss Work (such as doors, door frames and skirting boards) can make a property look shabby. Try to bring it all back to a shine with a damp cloth.

Food For Thought
When choosing a sales agent it is to your benefit to choose a sales agent who additionally markets properties for rent. Property letting agencies have long standing buy to let property investment people indefinitely registered in their applicant database. These investment buyers purchase regularly from them. They know the property agent and they are far more prone to decide on purchases quickly and make reliable offers. These investment buyers prefer to purchase property through that agent for the reason that it is less trouble for them to rent out their new property quickly after buying your property. Tenants also register to purchase property. Good quality rental agencies build strong working relationships with their rental clients and are perfectly positioned to help them buy one of a sales client's properties.
Can I hurry the process along?
If you are selling , you should get all your documents and paperwork to your solicitors as soon as you can. This will enable your case to move forward at a greater speed. The same advice also applies to buyers. It is also in their best interests to put as much effort as possible into arranging the property loan because this is usually the thing that consumes the longest time.
