Should I use a London solicitor for my conveyancing?
There's no real need to use a solicitor located in London to do your conveyancing. Your whole case can be managed efficiently by post, email and telephone.
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 are specialists at marketing
London estate agents are experienced at marketing properties. Not every person is cut out as a salesman - and the business of getting a sale is usually something an expert should do. Your estate agent will know how to take flattering protographs of your house, how to devise an appealing write-up of it and the best locations to market those details to obtain the greatest amount of interest.
London 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 London.
A good London 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 London property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Normally an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or London 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.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their London property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good London estate agent will be able to guide you towards a price that strikes the right balance between being attractive to both you and any potential London purchasers.

Spend Up To 1% - It is often advised that a seller should consider spending up to 1% of the sale value of the property on re-decoration, D.I.Y. and / or touching-up to achieve the best price. You should discuss this with a local London specialist adviser or London estate agent. A good London estate agent may be able to point you in the right direction.
Do Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in London? If so, you may want to take a good, objective look around. How many small, simple jobs are there that you haven't bothered getting around to doing? The problem is that we become blind to the small flaws after a while (apart from the ones that annoy us), whereas an observant newcomer to your home will spot them straight away. We're talking about curling wall-paper, or borders just need sticking down; Marks on walls, that need wiping off; Dead flies or dust on a lamp-shade; Dirty windows; Old screw-holes in walls that need filling and touching up. Now is the time to put a day aside to do these little jobs, and help achieve the best price for you property.
Neutralise Nasty Odours - If you're trying to sell your London property, then perhaps it's time to ask a good friend the question "does my house smell". If you live with unpleasant odours, then you may no longer notice them. Get the blunt opinion of a friend. If there's a problem, don't worry... there are plenty of products on the market to remove nasty smells, rather than cover them up.
Tidy The Garden - Perhaps you are not much of a gardener, your lawn is un-cut and the whole place is looking rather messy! Well it’s time to get busy. A badly presented garden may well be off-putting to London buyers. Cut the lawn, trim the edges and remove as much junk and clutters as you can. A few plastic pots filled with colourful flowers could really change the appeal of your property.

Food For Thought
Buy And Refurbish In A Risky Market
I speculate how many individuals got trapped badly in the downward spiral in the market, when they bought a home at what looked like a bargain price, spent considerable money doing it up, in the futile aspiration of selling it on at a gain. Very many, I'm sure! The question is... is there yet cash to be made? How can the risk be minimized? When you catch sight of a possible home, go fetch a London estate agent, or more than one, and get an professional view. How much is the house in fact worth currently? What would its value be if it was finished up to a decent state? Get in a builder who is familiar with subbing out the various aspects of the renovation trade, and get a sensible estimate for the renewal work. Now calculate your potential return, and calculate how severely the marketplace would have to to dip to obliterate that profit, and land you in arrears. Now you should have a sensible assessment of the danger. Don't forget... it's simple to start going in excess of plan on the restoration. Make allowances for this! These are just some suggestions... not advice! Good luck!
The Business Structure
Ask the question whether it is be better to select an estate agent in London who is wholly owned and run by experts who are predominantly dedicated to the sale of your property rather than by people who are basically working as part of a big business consolidation programme? Be certain that you are fully able to correspond at Director level should you want to.
