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.
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.
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.
Kirkcaldy Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People
It requires a particular personality to be a good sales person. It takes character, charisma, a certain manner, and in some cases good looks. These are simply attributes that many of us find in short supply. If you're lucky your Kirkcaldy real estate agent will be in possession the attributes of a good sales man or woman, and win the sale faster for you and at a better price than you could achieve if you tried to sell your own property!
Many estate agents in Kirkcaldy will give the option to do accompanied viewings on your behalf. The agent will big-up your property to viewers, highlighting the best attributes. Some viewers are increasingly likely to tell an agent, than the owner, what they dislike about a house. The outcome is that if you use a Kirkcaldy agent, you are far more likely to get honest information about what details of your property need fixing to achieve a quick sale, at the best value.

Marketing Your Home Through an Estate Agent - Even though you may have thought you'd selected the best estate agent in the town of Kirkcaldy, they may have become complacent by relying on their reputation. Always satisfy yourself that they are doing the best job for YOU. Never mind their other clients - it's your home that needs the effort behind it to market and sell it as effectively as possible.
Will selling a property in Kirkcaldy need a Kirkcaldy conveyancing solicitor? - Will selling a property in Kirkcaldy need Kirkcaldy conveyancing solicitor? This is an excellent question. Many people in Kirkcaldy may mistakenly think that they need a Kirkcaldy solicitor to do their conveyancing. The reality is this, that your conveyancing solicitor does not need to be local. Some Kirkcaldy solicitors choose only to deal with Kirkcaldy property transactions, or other properties very nearby. Other conveyancers will choose to handle transactions from all over the UK. Their quality of service will in no way be less than a local solicitor. It may well be better, as they specialize in conveyancing. It is also likely that their prices will be more competitive.
Clean the loft - dump all the rubbish. - Some viewers will want to take a look in your attic . If it is cluttered full of stuff that has the appearance that it could be left there then this will be off putting. Additionally, a clear empty loft-space will look like it may have conversion potential.
Rent Some Storage - If your house is very cluttered, then you may want to consider renting a storage unit in Kirkcaldy. Removing large, unnecessary articles of furniture and other clutter will give the appearance of bigger rooms. Viewers like to see a reasonably blank canvas, that they can really imagine making their own. The disadvantages are the weekly costs of storage, and the double-handling of the furniture, that you will now have to move twice.

Food For Thought
What are searches?
As part of the process of purchasing your property, the solicitor you appoint will conduct searches on your behalf. (You must pay for these). The searches relate to the property you are buying - and check for various things. Is the current ownership of the property all in order? Is the seller in a legally sound position to do so? Is the environment OK (toxic ground, tree preservation orders, radon gas, flood-prone etc.). Is the land registered? What are the status of the mains water supply, drainage and sewerage? Are there mines or mining activity affecting the property? And so on. The purpose of the searches is to ensure that you are buying a property legally, and with no nasty surprises.
Should I Employ A Web-Based Estate Agency?
Perhaps you have noticed there is an increasing number of "Internet" based estate-agents appearing. These are basically agents that do not own a shop front and make use of the WWW to sell their property portfolio. These agencies can often heavily under-cut high street property agents. But there are a number of very things of importance to look out for ... Does the agent place adverts in the local property post? Do they upload your house onto Rightmove? Do they offer assisted viewings? Should these things not be of consequence to you, then carry on and save a load of cash!
