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, 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.

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.

Well Connected

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.


If you desire to have a go at a complex task then it is usually prudent to either seek advice from an expert, or to hunt down an expert to do the task on your behalf. buying or selling homes in Kirkwall is not an exception . 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.

The Right Value

A Kirkwall-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Kirkwall.

Selling Tips

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.

Be Realistic With Respect To The MarketHave 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-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.

Find a good conveyancing solicitor for Kirkwall conveyancingFind 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.

Beaumont Legal

I would highly recommend Matthew Rushworth who has dealt with my transaction in an efficient and professional way ' and always readily available to assist with any query. I would certainly instruct Matthew again, he is a credit to Beaumont Legal.. Client, TW16. Rating: rating: 5 stars October, 2013

Chadwick Lawrence LLP

A few of the documents sent through had inaccuracies in them which was frustrating especially being a first time buyer and therefore unaware of the correct process. However, having said that, the solicitor was polite both via verbal and written communication and responded to my e'mails quickly and always took my calls. I completed on the requested date with no delays. I would use the solicitors firm again but emplore a bit more attention to detail when standard letters/forms used. . Client, RG30. Rating: rating: 5 stars April, 2013
