Why use a Kirkcaldy Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Kirkcaldy 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.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Kirkcaldy 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.
In The Know
A good Kirkcaldy 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.
Because Kirkcaldy agents are good at marketing property
Kirkcaldy property sales agents are experts at marketing houses. Not every person is born a sales man or woman - and the business of selling is typically a job for an expert. Your estate agent will know how to take flattering protographs of your house, how to write up an appealing description of it and where to market those details to obtain the greatest amount of interest.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Kirkcaldy property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Kirkcaldy 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 Kirkcaldy purchasers.

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 Kirkcaldy property buyers.
Renew Scruffy Flooring - Linoleum flooring in bathrooms and kitchens can often look very scruffy after years of use. It is inexpensive to replace. Consider renewing it if it looks worse for wear.
De-Clutter - It’s your home in Kirkcaldy, 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 Kirkcaldy hotel, but otherwise present your viewers with a blank canvas, somewhere that they can imagine making their own.
Clear the attic - get rid of all the rubbish. - Some viewers will ask to take a peek in your loft space. If the loft is cluttered to the brim with clutter that look likes it could well not be removed then this can be off putting. Additionally, a nice empty attic-space will give the appearance that it may have loft-conversion potential.

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 Kirkcaldy 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 Kirkcaldy 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.
Estate Agents Commission Rates Explained
The vast majority of sellers are not aware of the differing commission rates that Kirkcaldy agents will charge to sell your property. It is a well established fact that not all Kirkcaldy agencies charge identical fees and there is a very good reason why - so don't make your selection of agency on price alone. A number of Kirkcaldy estate agents may quote standard rates but evaluating the house, may determine that the property is more difficult to market than their usual properties because it is in an undesirable area or bad state of repair warranting increased marketing costs and effort. on the other hand, some estate agents could quote a lower than usual rate if they think that they can move your house without much effort and with great speed. Some Kirkcaldy agents do not have the running costs of larger firms who have invested heavily in high street branches, high quality training for staff, complex database software and professional marketing materials and resources. That is not to imply that low price commission rates will manifest in poor customer service and professional standards because you can at times experience inadequate service when employing bigger firms too. low price Kirkcaldy estate agents usually require a higher turnover of stock to trade profitably and are as a result far less prone to be concerned with regards to securing the best value for their clients. The net total of the post-sale money in your pocket is clearly of greater importance than the percentage fee your Kirkcaldy agent has invoiced in commission charges.
