Why use a London Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of London 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 London 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.
Because we're all proud of our houses
Property viewers may well be a brutal group, marching around the house like royalty, offering rude assessments and pulling discontented facial expressions. Even perhaps the nicest homes are sometimes in for a bashing, simply for the reason that one person's like is some other person's dislike. For this reason it's perhaps for the better if you let a London property agent take property viewers around your house - and leave it to them to feed back to you any useful critisizm. Nobody enjoys having their house criticized by visitors.
In The Know
A good London estate agent will already have a shortlist of potential buyers (applicants) on their books, who may immediately want to view your property. This could result in a quick sale.
The Right Value
A London-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of London.

Go Potty - It is said that first impressions last. If you property will allow for it, why not invest in some fragrant, colorful and attractive potted flowers or plants from a London garden center. These will help to make you property look cheerful and attractive on first impressions.
Modernise dated fittings. - It's arguable that some folk love "dated". The majority don't. If your house is looking more 80s than "now" you may want to consider zapping the worst offenders. Nasty wallpaper can be covered with a lick of paint, cupboard doors and tiles can also be painted over, and door handles are easily replaced. London property hunters will mainly prefer a "blank canvas" to a scheme that sticks out as being dated.
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.
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 London property buyers.

Food For Thought
Estate Agents Commission Rates Disambiguated
Many property sellers are unaware of the disparate commission rates that London agents will charge for selling your property. It is a well established fact that not all London estate agencies charge the same rates and there is a very good reason for this - so don't make your selection of agency based on just the price. A number of London agents may quote standard prices but after visiting your property, may determine that the property may be more difficult to market than their usual properties because it's in a bad area or bad state of repair meaning increased marketing costs and sales effort. Conversely, some estate agents may quote a lower than normal commission if they think that they can sell your property easily and quickly. A number of London estate agents do not suffer with the running costs of bigger firms who have invested heavily in town centre offices, top-level staff training, sophisticated computer software and professional marketing collateral and resources. That is not to say that low cost commission rates will deliver cut-down customer service and professionalism because one can at times experience inadequacies when dealing with bigger chain firms too. Cut price London agents usually need a bigger turnover of properties in order to trade profitably and are as a consequence less likely to show concern about securing the best value for their clients. The net total of the post-sale money in your pocket is clearly more important than the commission your London agent has invoiced in commission costs.
Is Choosing An Estate Agent Comparable to Making a Wager in A Horse Race?
A certain professional agent in London thinks that choosing the right estate agent is comparable to backing a particular horse - in their case, that agent being THE FAVOURITE. They were heard to say that backing the winner could cost you more to have a stake in it but the odds on getting the desired result - A WIN, are higher. Don't neglect this advice if you are deciding how to choose an agent in the town of London.
