Why use a Longsight Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Longsight 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.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Some agents in Longsight 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 features. Some viewers are more likely to tell an estate agent, than the home owner, what they hate about a property. The result of this is that if you employ a Longsight estate agent, you are far more likely to receive honest feedback about what aspects of your house need fixing up to achieve a quick sale, at the best achievable price.
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.

Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Longsight 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.
Clean your windows - If your windows or mirrors are looking grubby, consider mixing some white spirit vinegar with a little water and washing up liquid, popping the mixture in a spray-bottle and giving your windows and mirrors a clean. (use this cleaning tip at your own peril!). The washing liquid will act as a de-greaser and the vinegar will act as an anti-foamer / streaker. Grubby windows or mirrors will create a bad impression on Longsight property buyers.
Neutralise Nasty Odours - If you're trying to sell your Longsight 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.
Do Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Longsight? 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.

Food For Thought
Beware Overvaluing Your Home
Overvaluing a property is a recognized ploy that some Longsight property agents will exploit in order to make an impression you to guarantee your listing instruction. Therefore, do not fall into the snare of simply choosing the Longsight estate agent with the premier estimation as an expensive property will be likely to appeal to the unsuitable type of buyers to your Longsight home and the desirable buyers may never get to see it. This practice can result in the house lingering inactive on the Longsight housing marketplace. This can furthermore lead to the house having to be subsequently reduced decreasing below its accurate marketplace worth. The issue of obtaining a truthful valuation is thus principal to the selling process. It is essential that you settle on a Longsight estate agent who not only has a track record of successful sales in Longsight but also has a complete working know-how of current buyer activity and who can understand and communicate principal market trends to your gain.
Low Fees and Poor Quality Versus Increased Costs and Higher Quality
In order for low fee agents to be enabled to compete with the bigger agencies in the area of Longsight, you should always make an effort to engage with a range of agents from both expensive and cheap groups to listen to what services they offer. Let the costlier agent have a chance to explain the merits of employing their services and experience in finding you a buyer; and for the budget priced agent to do likewise. Don't just base your decision on simply price.
