Why use a Lofthouse Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Lofthouse 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.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Lofthouse 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.
A good estate agent in Lofthouse will be able to advise you on how to best present your property to potential purchasers.
A good Lofthouse 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 Lofthouse 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 Lofthouse 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.
Because we're all very proud of our houses
Those desiring to view your home may well be a brutal bunch, marching around the house like royalty, making unplesant assessments and pulling discontented faces. Even the best decorated homes are sometimes in for a bashing, simply for the reason that the first's preference is some other person's non-preference. So it is perhaps best if you let a Lofthouse estate agent take property viewers around your property - and leave them to filter back any noteworthy critisizm. No one likes to have their home criticized by strangers.

Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Lofthouse 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.
Mirror Mirror - Do you have a small room in your house? A carefully selected mirror can really help to improve the perception of the size of a room.
Become Energy Efficient - If you are placing your home on the market then Lofthouse applicants will be looking around for homes with energy efficiency, as these properties will be cheaper to keep, and simpler to sell at a later date. A good Lofthouse property agency will be able to give you advice on this matter and direct you to the right resources for upgrading your home to be increasingly energy saving. It is a requirement that an energy assessment inspector will come and assess your property for a current and future achievable Energy Efficiency Rating and an existing and achievable Environmental (CO2) Impact Rating. This assessment is necessary before to placing your property on the market.
Tidy Up - Make sure that rooms are clean and tidy, especially bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen.

Food For Thought
Is Choosing An Agent Just Like Betting in A Horse Race?
A certain quality agent in Lofthouse thinks that choosing the right estate agent is just like placing a bet on a particular horse - in their case, that agent being THE FAVOURITE TO WIN. They were overheard to state that trusting the winner could cost you more but the odds on getting the desired result - A WIN, are far higher. Consider this advice if you are thinking about choosing an agent in Lofthouse.
What does "Completion" mean?
This is when the buyer becomes the legal owner of the property and can move in. As early as possible on the agreed day, the buyer's solicitor will send the balance of the purchase money to the seller's solicitor. The seller's solicitor will notify the estate agent and the seller when the transaction is complete. Only then should the keys be released to the purchaser. This normally takes place around noon but could be as late as 5pm.
