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.
A good Kirkcaldy 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 Kirkcaldy 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 Kirkcaldy 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.
Get The Best Value for your House
Experienced Estate agents in Kirkcaldy have a good understanding of the Kirkcaldy house marketplace, and should help you with achieving the higher sale price for your house.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Some agents in Kirkcaldy may give the option to undertake accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. The agent will show-off the house to viewers, drawing attention to the most attractive attributes. Some viewers are more likely to tell an agent, than the home owner, what they don’t like about a house. This means that if you employ the services of a Kirkcaldy agent, you are likely to get honest feedback about what details of your property need fixing to achieve a quick sale, at the highest price.

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.
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.
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 Kirkcaldy specialist adviser or Kirkcaldy estate agent. A good Kirkcaldy estate agent may be able to point you in the right direction.
Weed the garden - One of the first things a potential buyer will see when they arrive at your property is the garden. If the garden is ragged then it will be a bad start, and make the wrong first impression. Pick up litter, cut the lawn and pull / kill any weeds that are growing in or around the path or patio areas. Consider hiring a pressure washer to clean up your path if it's looking really grubby.

Food For Thought
How much time will the legal procedure take ?
This is one of our most regularly made questions and sadly, there is no easy answer because it depends on so many different things. The most straightforward type of sale is that of an non-dwelled property to a cash purchaser. This kind of transaction would likely take about six weeks to complete (from the time of instruction with a solicitor to when the property legally is transferred). If the purchaser needs a property loan, this may well add an additional number of weeks to the time scale. In the case where the purchaser is also purchasing a property, this could add two to four additional weeks and maybe even more time if there is a bigger chain of related sales. Further time delays could come about from misplaced paperwork, lethargic Kirkcaldy solicitors and slow buyers and sellers. An average completion timeframe is about ten to fourteen weeks.
Not All Agencies Are Equal
Not all property agencies are Equal. When you are selecting a Kirkcaldy agency to sell your home it is prudent to ask many questions. How much will they charge? Are viewings attended? Do they communicate well? What do their property hand-outs and window brochures appear like? What are the elective additional services that you may have to pay for to have? How often will your home be shown in your local newspaper? What is their applicant book looking like? Do they make you feel confident? All of these questions well worth asking before engaging them. Do not forget, you are hunting for the most diverse spread of services for the lowest fee.
