Why use a Seaton Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Seaton 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.
Use An Expert
If you want to have a go at a complex task then it is prudent to either seek expert advice, or to find an expert to do the work for you. buying or selling homes in Seaton is no exception to this rule. Some property purchases or sales can prove to be trouble-free, but many others are quite the opposite. If a difficulty pops up during the process, you will be pleased to have the sound guidance and expert knowledge of your property agent.
A good Seaton 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 Seaton 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 Seaton 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
Those desiring to view your home may well be an insensitive group, stalking all over the house like royalty, making unkind assessments and making discontented facial expressions. Even the best decorated homes are in for rough treatement, simply for the reason that one person's like is some other person's dislike. For this reason it's perhaps best if you let a Seaton property agent show property viewers about your property - and leave it to them to filter back any worthwhile critisizm. No one enjoys having their house criticized by strangers.
Seaton Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People
It requires a particular personality to be a good sales person. It requires character, charisma, a certain manner, and perhaps even attractive looks. These are sometimes things that some of us lack. If you're lucky your Seaton estate agent will posses the criteria of a good sales person, and close a sale for you faster and at a better price than you could manage on your own!

Go Potty - It is said that first impressions last. If you property will allow for it, why not invest in some fragrant, colorful and attractive potted flowers or plants from a Seaton garden center. These will help to make you property look cheerful and attractive on first impressions.
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 Seaton property buyers.
Do Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Seaton? 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.
Weed the garden - One of the first things a potential buyer will see when they arrive at your property is the garden. If the garden is bedraggled then it will be a bad start, and make the wrong first impression. Pick up litter, cut the lawn and pull / kill any weeds that are growing in or around the path or patio areas. Consider hiring a pressure washer to clean up your path if it's looking really grubby.

Food For Thought
When should I instruct a solicitor?
Some Seaton solicitors offer a "no sale, no fee" service so there is no risk in instructing such solicitors before you have agreed a sale or purchase. In fact, as a seller, it is better to start the process early so that paperwork etc can be prepared in readiness for a sale. As a buyer, you can also instruct a Seaton "no sale, no fee" solicitor as there is no risk in doing so. In fact, when you make an offer on a property, your position looks stronger if you have a solicitor already in place.
Could it be wiser to use a local Seaton conveyancer?
In general, this will be a far more expensive option. If you feel as though you are required to be able to go into the solicitor's premises to speak with them, then it is probably better to pay the extra for the privilege of using a local property solicitor. Don't forget, an ever increasing amount of property transactions in this day and age are being dealt with at a distance as sellers and buyers make use of competitive fees. An increasing number of people now instruct a solicitor via the World Wide Web than those who have received a recommendation from a friend.
