Why use a Modbury Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Modbury 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.
Modbury Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People
It takes a special kind of person to be a good sales person. It takes character, charisma, a certain manner, and in some cases the right looks. These are simply things that some of us find in short supply. Hopefully your local Modbury real estate agent will be in possession the attributes of a good sales man or woman, and close a sale faster for you and at a better price than you could manage on your own!
You local Modbury Estate Agents will always be available, by telephone or email, to deal with enquiries about your property. If you try to DIY your house sale then you are likely to miss may opportunities because you are unlikely to be available to field enquiries.
Modbury 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 Modbury.
A good Modbury 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 Modbury 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 Modbury 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.

Repair / Paint Fences - If you're putting your Modbury 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.
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 Modbury property buyers.
Have Realistic Expectations With Respect To The Market - Like many markets in the United Kingdom, the property market in Modbury has been better. You must be realistic about the actual market value of your home if you are wanting a quick sale. This may be troublesome, especially if you overstretched on your property loan when you originally purchased your home. Think about discussing your circumstances with your local IFA, and with your agent to come to an agreement of a sensible market value for your house.
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 Modbury viewers. Consider calling in a local Modbury cleaning specialist to revive carpets.

Food For Thought
Not All Agents Are Identical
Not all estate agents are the same. When you are choosing a Modbury agency to sell your home it is prudent to ask many questions. What are the charges? Will they attend viewings? Do they communicate well? What do their property brochures and window cards look like? What are the optional additional services that you could have to pay for to benefit from? How often will your home be shown in your local property listings? What is their buyer's book looking like? Are they dressed for business? These are all questions well worth asking prior to employing them. Remember, you should be hunting for the widest offering of options for the best cost.
When will I have to pay money out?
As a seller, you will have to pay for a Home Information Pack before marketing can begin. Once you have secured a sale, your Modbury solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. The balance of the money from the sale will come to you on the day of completion. The solicitor will take their fee out at this stage, as will the Modbury Estate Agent. As a buyer, your solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. On Exchange of Contracts, you will be asked by your solicitor to provide 5% or 10% of the purchase price. On the day of completion, your mortgage money will come in to your solicitor who will pass it on to the seller.
