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.
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.
You local Kilmarnock 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.
In The Know
A good Kilmarnock estate agent will already have a shortlist of potential buyers (applicants) on their books, who may immediately want to view your property. This could result in a quick sale.
Kilmarnock agents have experience at marketing property
Kilmarnock house sale agents are experienced at marketing properties. Not everyone is born a sales man or woman - and the work of selling is often best left to the experts. Your property agent will know how to take flattering protographs of your house, how to write up a good description of it and the best locations to market those details to get the greatest amount of interest.

Tidy Up - Make sure that rooms are clean and tidy, especially bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen.
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.
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.
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.

Food For Thought
When will I have to pay money out?
As a seller, you will have to pay for a Home Information Pack before marketing can begin. Once you have secured a sale, your Kilmarnock solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. The balance of the money from the sale will come to you on the day of completion. The solicitor will take their fee out at this stage, as will the Kilmarnock Estate Agent. As a buyer, your solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. On Exchange of Contracts, you will be asked by your solicitor to provide 5% or 10% of the purchase price. On the day of completion, your mortgage money will come in to your solicitor who will pass it on to the seller.
Hand-outs and Window Displays
No small number of estate agencies in Kilmarnock use traditional window posters as an element of the window showcase to publicise their houses. One of their standard services is that property particulars describing your property, including a number of pictures, will also be prepared by them on your behalf. Always make certain that the window display poster, descriptive brochure and any property paper adverts are to your liking. If you decide that your estate agency has failed to suitably summarised your property or failed to include an item that you think is a attractive feature or sale winner then tell them about it and make sure that they amend things.
