Why use a Kirkwall Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Kirkwall 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.
Kirkwall estate agents are good at marketing property
Kirkwall estate agents are good at marketing houses. Not every person is born a sales person - and the work of selling is often best left to the experts. Your property agent should know how to take appealing protographs of your house, the methods required to devise an appealing description of it and where to market that information to obtain the greatest amount of interest.
If you want to have a go at a complex task then it is prudent to find expert advice, or to find an expert to complete the work on your behalf. Selling or buying homes in Kirkwall is not an exception . Some property purchases or sales can prove to be extremely trouble-free, but many others are quite the opposite. Should a difficult item comes up during the process, then you will be glad of the guidance and expert knowledge of your property agent.
A good estate agent in Kirkwall will be able to advise you on how to best present your property to potential purchasers.
A good Kirkwall 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 Kirkwall 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 Kirkwall 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.

Pressurise Your Property Agency - Don't place too much reliance on your estate agent to put the required effort into producing the marketing particulars and populating your window display poster. Make sure you read very carefully what they have prepared and don't be reticent to insist that they make changes to these items if you decide that they have not been diligent enough. Check for good spelling and grammatical errors. Make sure that all of the descriptions are accurate.
Scrub Up - Don’t be scared to get out your favourite cleaning products and really get stuck into those tired areas of your property. The ’nearly new’ look of kitchen units, appliances and bathroom furniture will really go down well with Kirkwall buyers.
Gloss Work - Tired looking Gloss Work (such as doors, door frames and skirting boards) can make a property look shabby. Try to bring it all back to a shine with a damp cloth.
Conveyancing - When you are buying or selling Kirkwall 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
Placing An Advert For Your House
Advertising in local newspapers is being gradually replaced by the modern use of the Internet and by estate agencies in Kirkwall having and advertising websites of their own ownership. If a current buyer is looking to buy a home in the Kirkwall location, they are most likely to hunt for homes on the Internet
When should I book my removals?
Only make a firm booking when contracts have been exchanged. Only at this point will you be certain of the day of the move.
