Why use a Kirknewton Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Kirknewton 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 Kirknewton 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 Kirknewton property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Typically an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Kirknewton 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.
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 queries you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Kirknewton property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Kirknewton 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 Kirknewton purchasers.
You local Kirknewton 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.

Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Kirknewton 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.
Pay For A Deep Clean - If a girl was going out on a important date, there's a reasonable chance she's either spend a lot of time at home getting ready, or even go to a Kirknewton beauty salon. If you're trying to sell a Kirknewton property then don't treat it any different! Consider getting in a deep-cleaning service. Prices, and level of service will vary, so look around! They will steam clean carpets, curtains and upholstery. They will get rid of all of the dirt that you may not even notice. Your oven will look like new! Hopefully the overall freshness and odour of your property will improve. This should really help with your sale!

Renew Scruffy Flooring - Linoleum flooring in bathrooms and kitchens can often look very unkempt after years of use. It is inexpensive to replace. Consider renewing it if it looks worse for wear.

Food For Thought
Agents Rates of Commission Disambiguated
Many sellers are not aware of the differing commission rates that Kirknewton estate agents will charge for the sale of your home. It is a well established fact that not all Kirknewton agencies charge the same fees and there's a good reason why - so don't make your choice of agent on just the price. Some Kirknewton agents may quote you standard prices but evaluating the house, may arrive at the conclusion that the property is more troublesome to sell than their typical properties because it's in an undesirable area or in a poor state of repair warranting increased marketing costs and effort. on the other hand, other estate agents may quote a smaller than usual commission if they conclude that they can sell your house easily and quickly. Some Kirknewton agents may not have the overheads of larger firms who have invested heavily in high street branches, high quality training for staff, sophisticated database systems and top-of-the-range marketing materials and resources. That is not to imply that cut-price commission charges will deliver poor customer service and professional standards because one can sometimes experience inadequate service when dealing with bigger chain firms too. Cut price Kirknewton agents typically require a higher turnover of properties to trade profitably and are therefore far less prone to show concern about securing the best value for their vendors. The final amount of the after sale proceeds in your bank account is clearly of greater importance than the commission your Kirknewton estate agent has charged in commission fees.
Buy And Refurbish In A Risky Market
I wonder how many individuals got caught badly in the dip in the market, when they bought a property at what looked like a bargain value, spent considerable money doing it up, in the empty dream of selling it on at a return. A lot, I'm certain! The question is... is there nevertheless riches to be made? How can the risk be minimized? When you spot a would-be home, go return with a Kirknewton estate agent, or more than one, and obtain an specialist opinion. How much is the house in fact worth at this time? How much will it be worth if it was made up to a excellent condition? Get in a builder who is familiar with subbing out the various aspects of the renovation trade, and pick up a genuine quote for the renovation work. Now calculate your probable income, and calculate how dreadfully the market would have to to downturn to destroy that yield, and land you in arrears. Now you should have a realistic assessment of the risk. Don't forget... it's simple to begin going above budget on the restoration. Make allowances for this! These are just a number of suggestions... not advice! Good luck!
