Why use a Kirkwall 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.

Use An Expert

If you desire to have a go at a complex task then it's typically prudent to either get expert advice, or to hunt down an expert to do the work on your behalf. buying or selling homes in Kirkwall is not an exception to the rule. Some property purchases or sales can prove to be extremely trouble-free, but many others are quite the opposite. Should a problematic issue crops up as part of the process, you will be glad of the guidance and expertise of your estate agent.

Good Local Knowledge

An estate agent or letting agent in Kirkwall is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.


A good estate agent in Kirkwall will be able to advise you on how to best present your property to potential purchasers.

Agent Accompanied Viewings

Most agents in Kirkwall may give the option to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. The agent will big-up the house to viewers, drawing attention to the most attractive features. Most viewers are increasingly prone to tell an estate agent, than the property owner, what they dislike about a house. The result of this is that if you employ a Kirkwall agent, you are far more likely to receive honest feedback on what aspects of your house need dressing up to get a quick sale, at the highest value.

Selling Tips

Have Realistic Expectations With Respect To Current Market ConditionsHave Realistic Expectations About Current Market Conditions - Like a lot of markets in the U.K., the housing market in Kirkwall has been better. You should be real with regards to the actual market value of your property if you desire a fast sale. This could prove to be difficult, especially so if you stretched too far on your loan when you originally bought your house. Consider having a chat about your circumstances with your local IFA, and with your estate agent to come to an agreement of a suitable market valuation for your house.

Make some coffeeMake some coffee - Most people love the smell of brewing coffee, even if they don't like to drink it. Consider putting on some fresh coffee just before a viewing, it's sure to create a welcoming odour for those Kirkwall viewers!

Molehills And Ants NestsMolehills And Ants Nests - If your garden suffers from Mole Hills or ants nests, then take appropriate action to eliminate these pests (humanely, of course). These garden pests could be off-putting to Kirkwall property buyers.

De-ClutterDe-Clutter - It’s your home in Kirkwall, 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 Kirkwall hotel, but otherwise present your viewers with a blank canvas, somewhere that they can imagine making their own.
