Why use a Kingston Upon Thames Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Kingston Upon Thames 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.
In The Know
A good Kingston Upon Thames 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.
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. Kingston Upon Thames 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 Kingston Upon Thames estate agent.
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.
Many estate agents in Kingston Upon Thames will give the option to undertake accompanied viewings on your behalf. The agent will show off your house to those viewing it, highlighting all of the most attractive attributes. Most viewers are increasingly prone to tell an estate agent, than the property owner, what they dislike about a house. The result of this is that if you employ a Kingston Upon Thames agent, you are far more likely to get honest information about what aspects of your house need changine to get a fast sale, and at the best achievable value.

Be choosy about photographs. - Your estate agent (or yourself - should you choose to use the FSBO method) will be required to create photographs of both the inside and outside of your house. This is a requirement to have it marketed in an attractive manner on the Internet, and in property brochures. Make certain each and every photograph advertises the house or room to the best possible. In addition, make certain that the angle and light source produces a flattering and attractive image. Ditch as much junk as you are able to before taking pictures of a room or exterior aspect - excess ornamentation will cause your home to appear less roomy and unattractive. Avoid photographs with your finger, pets or ashtrays in them!
De-Clutter - It’s your home in Kingston Upon Thames, you’ve lived there for years, it feels like part of you, and you love it. But if you’re selling, then it’s time to move out mentally! Try to pack away as much personal clutter as you can. Leave a few, favourite items out so that the house doesn’t feel like a Kingston Upon Thames hotel, but otherwise present your viewers with a blank canvas, somewhere that they can imagine making their own.
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 Kingston Upon Thames specialist adviser or Kingston Upon Thames estate agent. A good Kingston Upon Thames estate agent may be able to point you in the right direction.
Clean your windows - If your windows or mirrors are looking grubby, consider mixing some white spirit vinegar with a little water and washing up liquid, popping the mixture in a spray-bottle and giving your windows and mirrors a clean. (use this cleaning tip at your own peril!). The washing liquid will act as a de-greaser and the vinegar will act as an anti-foamer / streaker. Grubby windows or mirrors will create a bad impression on Kingston Upon Thames property buyers.

Credit Crunch Bites Hard
The credit crunch has greatly reduced UK house prices. Residential property values have fallen drastically since summer 2008, when they peaked. They fell at their rapidest rate for at least 25 years. They have however now begun a slow recovery. This remains a good time for first time buyers to consider a purchase, but a worry for those who over-stretched their mortgage.
