Why use a Knebworth Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Knebworth 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.
The Right Value
A Knebworth-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Knebworth.
The property buying and selling process is a complex one and can be very daunting, especially for first time sellers. Your estate agent will be able to guide you through the process of selling your home - and explain all of the steps. Some estate agents even have an Independent Financial Adviser in-branch who can help you with any financial questions you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Knebworth 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.
Knebworth 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 Knebworth.

Pets in the garden. - If you are marketing your property in Knebworth then you should perhaps examine your garden for mess left behind by your own pets or yourneighbour's pets. If your garden looks like it's used as a sandbox, then this will make an extremely bad impression . Always clean up after your own pets, and consider using anti-dog or cat countermeasures to scare away and put-off your neighbouring property's pets. Please make sure these devices are not harmful to the animals.
Rent Some Storage - If your house is very cluttered, then you may want to consider renting a storage unit in Knebworth. Removing large, unnecessary articles of furniture and other clutter will give the appearance of bigger rooms. Viewers like to see a reasonably blank canvas, that they can really imagine making their own. The disadvantages are the weekly costs of storage, and the double-handling of the furniture, that you will now have to move twice.
Clean your windows - If your windows or mirrors are looking grubby, consider mixing some white spirit vinegar with a little water and washing up liquid, popping the mixture in a spray-bottle and giving your windows and mirrors a clean. (use this cleaning tip at your own peril!). The washing liquid will act as a de-greaser and the vinegar will act as an anti-foamer / streaker. Grubby windows or mirrors will create a bad impression on Knebworth property buyers.
Be Realistic With Respect To The Market - Just like many markets in the United Kingdom, the property marketplace in Knebworth is on its knees. You should be sensible with regards to the actual market value of your house if you are wanting a rapid sale. This may be troublesome, especially so if you stretched too far on your loan when you purchased your property. Consider having a chat about your situation with your Independent Financial Adviser, and your estate agent to come to an agreement of a realistic asking price for your home.

Food For Thought
Differences in Legal Fees - Why do prices jump around from solicitor to solicitor?
Why is there is such a difference in legal professional fees when it comes to buying and selling houses? It is a very prudent question, and I am certain that you are pondering if it has something to do with the standard of service? Oddly, the answer to this question is largely NO. The usual rule is : you only get what you pay for. This isn't always the case with conveyancing. It largely depends on large-scale business. There are solicitors that only deal with property related cases, and on a very large scale. They are very much experienced and pass down large cost reductions to you.
Should I Employ A Web-Based Agency?
Perhaps you have noticed that there's a growing number of Web based agents starting up. Simply put, these are agents that do not own a shop and use the Internet to market their properties. These agencies can frequently drastically undercut traditional agencies. However, there are a few important things to watch our for ... Do they advertise in your local paper? Does the agent export your home onto Zoopla? Does the agent facilitate assisted viewings? Should these things not be important to you, then carry on and save yourself a lot of money!
