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.
Kirkliston Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People
It takes a special kind of person to be a good sales person. It takes charisma, a winsome manner, good character, and perhaps even the right looks. These are simply attributes that many of us find in short supply. With any luck your Kirkliston real estate agent will be in possession the criteria of a top sales man or woman, and win the sale for you faster and at a superior price than you could achieve if you tried to sell your own property!
The Right Value
A Kirkliston-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Kirkliston.
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. Kirkliston 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 Kirkliston estate agent.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Kirkliston area will give your agent the edge when trying to find a buyer for your property. They will know the location of local amenities, the local schools, which areas are well thought of and the pricing and sales trends. They will also be able to advise you of the best price that can be achieved in the area if various improvements are made to a property, and how much to reduce by to get a fast sale.

Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Kirkliston property on the market, then you may want to consider getting your garden fences painted / repaired.
Privacy is an important issue for many house buyers, and a tidy, secure, well-maintained boundary with neighbouring properties will be a big plus, rather than "another job that will need doing".
In the same manner, ensure that hedges and trees are trimmed and tidy.
Rent Some Storage - If your house is very cluttered, then you may want to consider renting a storage unit in Kirkliston. Removing large, unnecessary articles of furniture and other clutter will give the appearance of larger 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.
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. Kirkliston property hunters will mainly prefer a "blank canvas" to a scheme that sticks out as being dated.
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.

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.
Could it be wiser to make use of a locally based Kirkliston property lawyer?
generally speaking, this will prove to be a significantly more costly choice. If you are inclined to think that you need to go into the solicitor's place of business and talk a case through, then it is far better to pay the additional costs for the privilege of using a locally based solicitor. Don't forget, more and more conveyancing transactions nowadays are transacted at a distance as purchasers and sellers take advantage of keen legal prices. Even more people now instruct a solicitor by means of the Internet than those who have been recommended a solicitor by a family member.
