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.
Kilmarnock estate agents have experience at marketing
Kilmarnock estate agents are experts at marketing properties. Not every person is born to be a sales person - and the work of making a sale is typically something an expert should do. Your property agent should have the knowledge to take appealing pictures of your house, how to write up an appealing description of it and the best place to market that information to obtain the greatest amount of interest.
Kilmarnock estate agents have many local industry connections. They may be able to recommend a good local solicitor, mortgage broker, insurance broker or financial adviser in Kilmarnock.
The property buying and selling process is a complex one and can be very daunting, especially for first time sellers. Your estate agent will be able to guide you through the process of selling your home - and explain all of the steps. Some estate agents even have an Independent Financial Adviser in-branch who can help you with any financial questions you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.
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. Kilmarnock 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 Kilmarnock estate agent.

Take Energy Efficiency Seriously - If you're marketing your home for sale then Kilmarnock buyers will be looking for energy efficient homes, as these homes are likely to be cheaper to run, and simpler to re-sell . A savvy Kilmarnock estate agent will be equipped to advise you on this matter and direct you to the right resources for converting your home to be more energy efficient. It is a requirement that an energy efficiency assessment professional will come and assess your property for its current and achievable Energy Efficiency Rating and an current and achievable Environmental (CO2) Impact Rating. This assessment is needed before to placing your property on the market.
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 Kilmarnock property buyers.
Have Realistic Expectations With Respect To The Current Market - Just like a lot of markets in Great Britain, the property market in Kilmarnock has been stronger. You should be real about the true asking price of your property if you're wanting a fast sale. Finding a buyer might be difficult, especially if you over-stretched yourself on your mortgage when you originally bought your home. Think about discussing your situation with your IFA, and your agent to agree a suitable market valuation for your home.
Conveyancing - When you are buying or selling Kilmarnock property, then one expense that is difficult to avoid is the legal cost. It really isn't a good idea to cut out the solicitor, as conveyancing is a complex process, and there are many pitfalls. The good news is this: There is no good reason to use a local solicitor - and AgentQuote.co.uk can help to find you a quality national solicitor who will do the work for a much cheaper price.

Food For Thought
The Business Structure
Ask yourself whether it is be better to choose an estate agent in Kilmarnock that is owned and operated by property experts that are interested in the sale of your property rather than by those who are basically working as part of a large corporate-firm growth programme? Be certain that you are able to communicate at Director or Partner level within the firm should you find cause to.
What does "Exchange of Contracts" mean?
This is when the contract becomes binding between buyer and seller. Up until this moment, the buyer is free to withdraw from the purchase, for any reason, without penalty. Exchange takes place over the telephone between the solicitors of the buyer and seller. Clients are not present at this time. A Completion date is set at this time. This is set in stone and cannot be changed.
