Because we're all proud of our homes
People viewing a property may well be an insensitive group, stalking around the house like royalty, offering unplesant comments and making discontented faces. Even the best of homes are sometimes in for a bashing, simply for the reason that one person's preference is some other person's non-preference. For this reason it's perhaps best to let a Kirkwall property agent take viewers around your home - and leave them to filter back any noteworthy feedback. No one likes to have their home criticized by visitors.
Kirkwall 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 Kirkwall.

Some property purchases or sales can turn our to be very trouble-free, but many others are not. If a difficulty crops up as part of the process, then you will be pleased to have the guidance and expert knowledge of your property agent.

Molehills 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.
Have Realistic Expectations With Respect To The Current Market - Like much of the rest of the U.K., the property marketplace in Kirkwall has been better. You need to be sensible about the true asking price of your house if you want a fast sale. This could prove to be hard work, especially so if you stretched too far on your loan when you purchased your property. Think about discussing your circumstances with your IFA, and with your estate agent to agree a sensible valuation for your house.
De-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.
Find a good conveyancing solicitor for Kirkwall conveyancing - If you're selling or buying property in Kirkwall then you're going to need a good solicitor to do your conveyancing. The solicitor doesn't need to be local to Kirkwall to do your conveyancing. In-fact, you'll get a much better deal by using a solicitor that is geared up to deal with large volumes, rather than using someone local. Kirkwall conveyancing doesn't need to cost the earth!

Food For Thought
Smaller Fees and Low Quality V Increased Costs and Higher Quality
In order for low fee agents to be enabled to compete with larger concerns in the area of Kirkwall, you should always try to speak with a number of agents from both camps to hear what they have to say. Allow the costlier agent have a chance to explain the merits of employing their services and experience in marketing your property; and for the less expensive property agent to do likewise. Do not make a decision on price alone.
When a price is agreed for a property, what happens next?
If you have not already done so, you should instruct a solicitor immediately. You should then give the contact details to your estate agent. The estate agent will then write to all interested parties to get the ball rolling.
