Why use a Kirkby Stephen Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Kirkby Stephen 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 Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Kirkby Stephen property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Kirkby Stephen 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 Kirkby Stephen purchasers.
A good Kirkby Stephen 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 Kirkby Stephen property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Normally an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Kirkby Stephen 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.
Kirkby Stephen Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People
It takes a special kind of person to be a good sales person. It takes charisma, a winsome manner, good character, and perhaps even attractive looks. These are simply attributes that some of us lack. Hopefully your Kirkby Stephen real estate agent will be in possession the attributes of a top sales person, and close the sale faster for you and at a superior price than you could achieve if you tried to sell your own property!
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.

Conveyancing - When you are buying or selling Kirkby Stephen 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.
Be particular about photographs. - Your estate agent (or yourself - should you choose to engage the FSBO method) will need to take photos of both the inside and outside of the house. This is a must to get it marketed in an attractive manner on the World Wide Web, and in information brochures. Make sure each and every photograph advertises the house or room to the very best possible extent. Ensure that the angle and lighting creates a cheerful and desirable image. Remove as much clutter and junk as you are able to prior to photographing a room or garden area - clutter will make your property to appear less roomy and unattractive. Exclude images with bits of your hand, dogs or offensive posters in them!
Do you have dirty carpets? - If you have dirty carpets in your Kirkby Stephen 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.
Be Realistic About The Market - Just like the rest of Great Britain, the housing market in Kirkby Stephen is on its knees. You should be real about the actual market value of your property if you're wanting a quick sale. This might be difficult, especially so if you overstretched on your property loan when you purchased your house. Consider seeking advice about your circumstances with your Financial Adviser, and with your agent to come to an agreement of a suitable asking price for your home.

Food For Thought
Why Use A Solicitor?
Many people begrudge the money they have to spend when they buy or sell property. Who can blame them? The government's stamp duty, the estate agent's fee, the HIP pack, all the search fees, the new, more expensive land registry fee, and then of course the solicitor's fee. Some people try to cut out the estate agent, others try to cut out the solicitor. Cutting out a Kirkby Stephen solicitor is a really bad idea! Use a qualified professional for your property transaction, or you are very likely to regret it!
Agents Fees Explained
Most vendors are not aware of the disparate rates of commission that Kirkby Stephen estate agents will charge for the sale of your home. It is a known fact that not all Kirkby Stephen agencies charge the same rates of commission and there's a very good reason why - so do not make your selection of agency on price alone. A number of Kirkby Stephen agents could quote their standard charges but evaluating the house, could determine that the property is more difficult to sell than their usual houses because it is in high crime area or in a poor state of repair warranting more marketing costs and sales effort. on the other hand, other agents may quote a smaller than normal commission if they think that they can move your property easily and with great speed. A number of Kirkby Stephen estate agents simply do not have the overheads of larger firms who have made high levels of investment in high street branches, top-level staff training, complex database systems and top-of-the-range marketing collateral and resources. That is not to say that cut-price commission charges will deliver low quality customer service and professional standards because one can sometimes experience inadequacies when employing larger firms too. low price Kirkby Stephen agents typically need a larger turnover of properties in order to trade profitably and are as a consequence far less prone to show concern with regards to achieving the best price for their vendors. The final amount of the post-sale proceeds in your pocket is clearly of greater importance than the percentage fee your Kirkby Stephen agent has charged you in commission costs.
