Why use a Knottingley Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Knottingley 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.
A good estate agent in Knottingley will be able to advise you on how to best present your property to potential purchasers.
Because we're all very proud of our houses
Those desiring to view your home may well be an insensitive group, stalking around the house like celebreties, offering unkind opinions and making unhappy facial expressions. Even the nicest houses are sometimes in for a bashing, just because the first's like is some other person's dislike. So it's perhaps best to let a Knottingley property agent show property viewers around your house - and leave them to filter back any noteworthy feedback. Nobody enjoys having their home picked on by strangers.
The Right Value
A Knottingley-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Knottingley.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Many agents in Knottingley may offer to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. The agent will show off the property to viewers, highlighting all of the best attributes. Most viewers are increasingly likely to tell an estate agent, than the home owner, what they don’t like about a property. The outcome is that if you use a Knottingley estate agent, you are far more likely to get honest feedback on what details of your house need fixing to achieve a quick sale, at the best achievable value.

Open Some Windows - Consider opening some windows for a couple of hours before a viewing. If it's a hot stuffy day, the leave them open, if it's cold then close them. In either case, this should help to give the property a nice fresh feeling when sellers come to view.
Be particular about photos. - Your property agency (or yourself - if you choose to engage the for sale by owner model) will need to take photographs of the inside and outside of the house. This is a must to get it displayed in an attention grabbing way on the Web, and in sales particulars. Make sure each and every photo really sells the property or room to the best possible. Additionally, make sure that the angle and light source makes for a flattering and desirable image. Remove as much clutter and junk as you can prior to photographing a room or garden area - clutter will cause your house to look smaller and messy. Do not use photos with your hand, pets or ashtrays in them!
Make some coffee - Most people love the smell of brewing coffee, even if they don't like to drink it. Consider putting on some fresh coffee just before a viewing, it's sure to create a welcoming odour for those Knottingley viewers!
Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Knottingley 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
Why Use A Solicitor?
Many people begrudge the money they have to spend when they buy or sell property. Who can blame them? The government's stamp duty, the estate agent's fee, the HIP pack, all the search fees, the new, more expensive land registry fee, and then of course the solicitor's fee. Some people try to cut out the estate agent, others try to cut out the solicitor. Cutting out a Knottingley solicitor is a really bad idea! Use a qualified professional for your property transaction, or you are very likely to regret it!
Buy And Refurbish In A Risky Market
I question how many folks got caught seriously in the downward spiral in the market, when they purchased a property at what looked like a bargain value, spent thousands of pounds improving it, in the empty aspiration of selling it on at a gain. Very many, I'm sure! The question is... is there still wealth to be made? How can the risk be minimized? When you spot a prospective house, go return with a Knottingley property agent, or more than one, and find an professional estimation. How much is the home really worth now? What would its value be if it was finished up to a first-rate condition? Get in a builder who is used to subbing out the many aspects of the renovation trade, and acquire a realistic quotation for the repair work. Now calculate your likely earnings, and consider how badly the market would need to slump to delete that turnover, and land you in arrears. Now you should have a sensible consideration of the risk. Don't forget... it's simple to begin going in excess of financial plan on the repair. Make allowances for this! These are just a few suggestions... not advice! Good luck!
