Why use a Kirkcudbright Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Kirkcudbright 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 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.
Although you may be confident that you're more than capable of managing the sale of your own property, the truth of the matter is that many of us have precious little spare time. Kirkcudbright applicants will not appreciate having to arrange viewings around your schedule. In all likelihood you will achieve a faster sale if you use a good Kirkcudbright estate agent.
Kirkcudbright 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 Kirkcudbright.
You local Kirkcudbright 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.

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 Kirkcudbright specialist adviser or Kirkcudbright estate agent. A good Kirkcudbright estate agent may be able to point you in the right direction.
Clean your windows - You should be able to clean your ground-floor windows, frames and sills easily - and a professional window-cleaner won't be expensive to get the upper floor windows done too. To make the best possible impression get your windows cleaned to a shine. Make sure your window ledges are tidy and that curtains and blinds are neatly arranged. If you have net curtains, consider giving them a clean (or your actual curtains if they're looking grubby).
Modernise dated fittings. - It's arguable that some folk love "dated". The majority don't. If your house is looking more 80s than "now" you may want to consider zapping the worst offenders. Nasty wallpaper can be covered with a lick of paint, cupboard doors and tiles can also be painted over, and door handles are easily replaced. Kirkcudbright property hunters will mainly prefer a "blank canvas" to a scheme that sticks out as being dated.
Conveyancing - When you are buying or selling Kirkcudbright 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.

Food For Thought
Rightmove, Zoopla, what is the difference between them?
It has been interesting to see the emergence of so many property portals. The WWW is less than thirty years old, and websites listing properties from many different agents are even younger. A number of champions have surfaced from the plethora of portals which offer very similar services. To name them: Rightmove and Zoopla. The main cause of the success of these portals is the television adverts that they make investments in, thus allowing them to attract a massive audience in the United Kingdom. These two property portals are probably the best for the reason that they are the sites which draw the most property agents to advertise homes on them - and therefore have the largest number of UK property stock in one place. Which one is the winner? Well that's strictly your choice - the consumer. Each site has a differing style, a different feel to it and different functions - but both fundamentally achieve the same end result - allow you to search for local property matching your preferences, and to view the details, images and features of that property.
Legal Fee Variance - Why do prices jump around between different solicitors?
Why is it that there is such a variance in legal charges when it comes to buying and selling residential property? It is a good question, and I am certain you are wondering whether it has anything to do with the standard of service? Surprisingly, the answer is for the most part NO. The rule is this: you only get out what you put in. This is not the case in this circumstance. It largely depends on large-scale business. There are solicitors firms that only work with property related cases, and on a very large scale. They are very much experienced and pass on large savings to their customers.
