Why use a Kirkliston Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Kirkliston 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 Kirkliston 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 Kirkliston 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 Kirkliston 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.

Clean your windows - If your windows or mirrors are looking grubby, consider mixing some white spirit vinegar with a little water and washing up liquid, popping the mixture in a spray-bottle and giving your windows and mirrors a clean. (use this cleaning tip at your own peril!). The washing liquid will act as a de-greaser and the vinegar will act as an anti-foamer / streaker. Grubby windows or mirrors will create a bad impression on Kirkliston property buyers.
Conveyancing - When you are buying or selling Kirkliston 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.
De-Clutter - It’s your home in Kirkliston, 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 Kirkliston hotel, but otherwise present your viewers with a blank canvas, somewhere that they can imagine making their own.
Clean the attic - remove all the rubbish. - Some buyers will want to take a peek in the loft space. If it is stuffed full of stuff that look likes it may be left there then this may well be off-putting. Also, a attractive empty loft-space will give the appearance that it could have the potential to be converted.

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 Kirkliston 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 Kirkliston 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.
Any estate agent in Kirkliston can claim to have a significant number of prospective property buyers in their database but it is your responsibility to establish what systems are in place to qualify those buyers as suitable persons to view and proceed to purchase your property. A good percentage of potential buyers may register an interest in your property but a well trained estate agent can identify the applicants who have a real need to buy and will therefore be showing serious interest in looking at your property.
