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.
London estate agents have experience at marketing property
London estate agents are experts at marketing houses. Not every person is cut out as a sales man or woman - and the work of getting a sale is usually best left to the experts. Your property agent should know how to take flattering protographs of your property, how to write up an appealing write-up of it and where to market that information to attract the greatest amount of enquiries.
Although you may be confident that you're more than capable of managing the sale of your own property, the truth of the matter is that many of us have precious little spare time. London applicants will not appreciate having to arrange viewings around your schedule. In all likelihood you will achieve a faster sale if you use a good London estate agent.
A good estate agent in London will be able to advise you on how to best present your property to potential purchasers.
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.

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.
Renew Scruffy Flooring - Linoleum flooring in bathrooms and kitchens can often look very unkempt after years of use. It is inexpensive to replace. Consider renewing it if it looks worse for wear.
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 London viewers. Consider calling in a local London cleaning specialist to revive carpets.
Marketing Your Home Through an Estate Agent - Even though you may have thought you'd selected the best estate agent in the town of London, they may have become complacent by relying on their reputation. Always satisfy yourself that they are doing the best job for YOU. Never mind their other clients - it's your home that needs the effort behind it to market and sell it as effectively as possible.

Food For Thought
The Business Structure
Ask yourself the question whether it is be better to select an estate agency in London that is owned and operated by experts who are concerned with the sale of your property as opposed to those who are basically working as part of a large business expansion exercise? Be certain that you are fully able to correspond at Director or Partner level within the firm should you want to.
Estate Agents Charge Rates Explained
The vast majority of property sellers are unaware of the disparate rates of commission that London estate agents will charge to sell your property. It is a known fact that not all London estate agencies charge the same rates of commission and there is a good reason for this - so don't make your choice of agent based on price alone. A number of London estate agents may quote you their standard prices but evaluating your house, could arrive at the conclusion that the property may be more troublesome to sell than their usual properties because it is in an undesirable area or bad state of repair warranting more marketing costs and sales effort. on the other hand, other estate agents may quote a lower than usual commission if they conclude that they can move your house easily and with great speed. A number of London agents simply do not suffer with the running costs of larger agencies who have invested heavily in town centre branches, top-level staff training, complex computer software and top-of-the-range marketing materials and resources. That's not to imply that low cost commission rates will deliver cut-down customer service and professional standards because one can on occasion experience inadequacies when employing larger chain firms too. Cut price London agents typically need a larger turnover of stock to trade profitably and they are as a consequence far less likely to be concerned with regards to securing the best price for their customers. The final amount of the post-sale proceeds in your pocket is clearly of greater importance than the percentage fee your London estate agent has invoiced you in commission costs.
