Why use a Kirkcaldy Estate Agent?

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 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.
You local Kirkcaldy Estate Agents will always be available, by telephone or email, to deal with enquiries about your property. If you try to DIY your house sale then you are likely to miss may opportunities because you are unlikely to be available to field enquiries.
Kirkcaldy estate agents have many local industry connections. They may be able to recommend a good local solicitor, mortgage broker, insurance broker or financial adviser in Kirkcaldy.
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. Usually 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.

Tidy The Garden - Perhaps you are not much of a gardener, your lawn is un-cut and the whole place is looking rather messy! Well it’s time to get busy. A badly presented garden may well be off-putting to Kirkcaldy buyers. Cut the lawn, trim the edges and remove as much junk and clutters as you can. A few plastic pots filled with colourful flowers could really change the appeal of your property.
Do you have dirty carpets? - If you have dirty carpets in your Kirkcaldy 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.
Tidy Up - Make sure that rooms are clean and tidy, especially bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen.
Do Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Kirkcaldy? If so, you may want to take a good, objective look around. How many small, simple jobs are there that you haven't bothered getting around to doing? The problem is that we become blind to the small flaws after a while (apart from the ones that annoy us), whereas an observant newcomer to your home will spot them straight away. We're talking about curling wall-paper, or borders just need sticking down; Marks on walls, that need wiping off; Dead flies or dust on a lamp-shade; Dirty windows; Old screw-holes in walls that need filling and touching up. Now is the time to put a day aside to do these little jobs, and help achieve the best price for you property.

Food For Thought
Find an Enthusiastic Agent
If a Kirkcaldy estate agent is not enthusiastic about your property, you would be unwise to give your business to them. Showing an enthusiastic attitude to selling your property is critical if purchasers are to be attracted to buy it. The agent you choose must be positive about the sales power of your home at all times.
How long does the whole legal process take ?
This is perhaps one of our most frequently asked questions and sadly, there simply is no easy answer as it depends on so many different things. The most straightforward type of sale is the one of an unoccupied property to a buyer without a mortgage. This kind of transaction would probably take around six weeks to complete (from the time of instruction with a solicitor to when the property changes hands). If the buyer requires a loan, this may add a number of extra weeks to the process. In the case where the purchaser is additionally purchasing a property, this could add two to four additional weeks and perhaps even longer if there is a wider chain of related sales. Even more delays could result from misplaced paperwork, slow Kirkcaldy solicitors and slow buyers and sellers. An average completion time is about 10-14 weeks.
