Why use a Newmillerdam Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Newmillerdam 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.
A good Newmillerdam 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 Newmillerdam property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Typically an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Newmillerdam 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.
Because we are all proud of our houses
Property viewers can often be an unkind bunch, stalking all over the house like royalty, offering rude assessments and pulling unhappy facial expressions. Even the best decorated houses are sometimes in for rough treatement, just for the reason that the first's preference is another person's non-preference. For this reason it is perhaps best if you let a Newmillerdam estate agent show property viewers around your property - and leave them to filter back any worthwhile feedback. No one enjoys having their house picked on by strangers.
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.
A good estate agent in Newmillerdam will be able to advise you on how to best present your property to potential purchasers.

Get Painting - Consider some fresh paint. There’s a good reason why new builds in Newmillerdam are usually presented in magnolia and white. The light colours make rooms look larger and cleaner. White paint, in particular, makes kitchens and bathrooms look spick and span. Remember, that dark purple that you painted your bedroom in, that you completely love, may not be to Newmillerdam buyer’s liking!
Do Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Newmillerdam? 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.
Rent Some Storage - If your house is very cluttered, then you may want to consider renting a storage unit in Newmillerdam. Removing large, unnecessary articles of furniture and other clutter will give the appearance of larger rooms. Viewers like to see a reasonably blank canvas, that they can really imagine making their own. The disadvantages are the weekly costs of storage, and the double-handling of the furniture, that you will now have to move twice.
Clean your windows - You should be able to clean your ground-floor windows, frames and sills easily - and a professional window-cleaner won't be expensive to get the upper floor windows done too. To make the best possible impression get your windows cleaned to a shine. Make sure your window ledges are tidy and that curtains and blinds are neatly arranged. If you have net curtains, consider giving them a clean (or your actual curtains if they're looking grubby).

Food For Thought
Your Lawyer's Task: deal with your new mortgage company
Something the solicitor will undertake in your stead: Report back to your new financer, telling them if there are any problems pertaining to the titleship deeds of your Newmillerdam property, or with any of the conditions they outlined in the mortgage offer.
What are searches?
As part of the process of purchasing your property, the solicitor you appoint will conduct searches on your behalf. (You must pay for these). The searches relate to the property you are buying - and check for various things. Is the current ownership of the property all in order? Is the seller in a legally sound position to do so? Is the environment OK (toxic ground, tree preservation orders, radon gas, flood-prone etc.). Is the land registered? What are the status of the mains water supply, drainage and sewerage? Are there mines or mining activity affecting the property? And so on. The purpose of the searches is to ensure that you are buying a property legally, and with no nasty surprises.
