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.
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. Usually 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.
The Right Value
A Seaton-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Seaton.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Seaton area will give your agent the edge when trying to find a buyer for your property. They will know the location of local amenities, the local schools, which areas are well thought of and the pricing and sales trends. They will also be able to advise you of the best price that can be achieved in the area if various improvements are made to a property, and how much to reduce by to get a fast sale.
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.

Open Some Windows - Consider opening some windows for a couple of hours before a viewing. If it's a hot stuffy day, the leave them open, if it's cold then close them. In either case, this should help to give the property a nice fresh feeling when sellers come to view.
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 Seaton viewers. Consider calling in a local Seaton cleaning specialist to revive carpets.
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 Seaton property buyers.
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.

Food For Thought
What does "Completion" mean?
This is when the buyer becomes the legal owner of the property and can move in. As early as possible on the agreed day, the buyer's solicitor will send the balance of the purchase money to the seller's solicitor. The seller's solicitor will notify the estate agent and the seller when the transaction is complete. Only then should the keys be released to the purchaser. This typically takes place around noon but could be as late as 5pm.
Why Use A Solicitor?
Many people begrudge the money they have to spend when they buy or sell property. Who can blame them? The government's stamp duty, the estate agent's fee, the HIP pack, all the search fees, the new, more expensive land registry fee, and then of course the solicitor's fee. Some people try to cut out the estate agent, others try to cut out the solicitor. Cutting out a Seaton solicitor is a really bad idea! Use a qualified professional for your property transaction, or you are very likely to regret it!
