Why use a Knaresborough Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Knaresborough 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.
Get Expert Advice
A Knaresborough estate agent will be able to answer any questions or queries that you might have about the buying or selling processes.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Knaresborough area will give your agent the edge when trying to find a buyer for your property. They will know the location of local amenities, the local schools, which areas are well thought of and the pricing and sales trends. They will also be able to advise you of the best price that can be achieved in the area if various improvements are made to a property, and how much to reduce by to get a fast sale.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Most estate agents in Knaresborough may offer to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. They will show-off the property to viewers, underlining all of the best attributes. Most viewers are increasingly likely to tell an agent, than the owner, what they hate about a property. The result of this is that if you use a Knaresborough estate agent, you are likely to receive honest information on what details of your property need fixing to get a quick sale, and at the highest achievable value.
A good Knaresborough 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 Knaresborough 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 Knaresborough 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.

Neutralise Nasty Odours - If you're trying to sell your Knaresborough property, then perhaps it's time to ask a good friend the question "does my house smell". If you live with unpleasant odours, then you may no longer notice them. Get the blunt opinion of a friend. If there's a problem, don't worry... there are plenty of products on the market to remove nasty smells, rather than cover them up.
Pet Problems - If you own pets, then consider re-housing them while your try to sell your home. At the very least, keep them out of sight during viewings, and make sure that you have removed as much trace of them as possible. Cat litter trays, bowls of pet food, pet hairs, stains on carpets and scratched up walls or furniture can be off-putting. There is also the issue of allergies to consider. Many people are allergic to pet hairs and dust. A home that sets off a reaction may put off otherwise keen Knaresborough viewers. Consider calling in a local Knaresborough cleaning specialist to revive carpets.
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 Knaresborough property buyers.
Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Knaresborough 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.

Food For Thought
Legal Fee Variance - Why do fees move around from solicitor to solicitor?
Why is there is so much of a difference in solicitors fees when it involves purchasing and the sale of houses? It is a prudent question, and I am certain you're wondering whether it has anything to do with the service you can expect? You will be surprised, but the answer to this question is for the most part NOT AT ALL. The typical rule is this: you will only get the same that you pay for. Not in this case. It has everything to do with economies of scale. There are solicitors firms that only deal with property related cases, and on a very large design. They specialise and are highly experienced and efficient and pass down large cost reductions to you.
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.
