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.
Because we are all very proud of our homes
Property viewers may well be an insensitive bunch, marching around the house like royalty, offering rude opinions and making discontented facial expressions. Even perhaps the best decorated homes are sometimes in for a bashing, just for the reason that the first's like is some other person's dislike. So it's perhaps for the better to let a Seaton estate agent show property viewers about your house - and leave it to them to feed back any useful feedback. No one enjoys having their home criticized by strangers.
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.
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. Typically 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 Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Seaton property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Seaton estate agent will be able to guide you towards a price that strikes the right balance between being attractive to both you and any potential Seaton purchasers.

Stay On Top Of The Property Agency - Don't place too much reliance on the estate agent to work too hard when creating the marketing brochure and creating the window promotion card. Ensure that you read very carefully what they've produced and do not be shy to demand that they work on alterations to these materials if you think that they simply have not been diligent enough. Look for bad spelling and errors of grammar. Make sure that all of the statements are not misleading.
Be Realistic About Current Market Conditions - As with much of the rest of the U.K., the property market in Seaton has seen better days. You must be real about the actual asking price of your house if you desire a fast sale. This could prove to be troublesome, especially if you stretched too far on your mortgage when you purchased your house. Consider discussing your situation with your Financial Adviser, and with your agent to come to an agreement of a suitable market valuation for your property.
Neutralise Nasty Odours - If you're trying to sell your Seaton 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.
Modernise dated fittings. - It's arguable that some folk love "dated". The majority don't. If your house is looking more 80s than "now" you may want to consider zapping the worst offenders. Nasty wallpaper can be covered with a lick of paint, cupboard doors and tiles can also be painted over, and door handles are easily replaced. Seaton property hunters will mainly prefer a "blank canvas" to a scheme that sticks out as being dated.

Food For Thought
Is Choosing An Agent Just Like Making a Wager in A Horse Race?
A certain well-thought of estate agent in Seaton has rumoured to have said that choosing the right estate agent is comparable to placing a bet on a particular horse - in their case, that agent being THE HORSE WITH THE BEST ODDS!. They were heard to say that trusting the favourite to win could cost you more but the odds on getting the result you want - A WIN, are far greater. Consider this advice if you are deciding how to choose an agent in the Seaton locality.
Property Portals, what is the fuss?
It's been of great interest to see so many property portals emerge. The Internet is less than 30 years old, and websites listing properties from many different agents are even younger. A number of winners and losers have surfaced from the multitude of portals that offer very similar services. Specifically: Zoopla and Rightmove. The main cause of the popularity of these portals is in the television advertisements they invest money in, thus enabling them to reach a very large group of people in Great Britain. These two websites are probably the the consumer's choice for the reason that they are the sites which attract the largest number of estate agents to advertise houses with them - and consequently have the the greatest quantity of UK property stock in the same database. Which one is the best? Well that's strictly up to you - the end user. Each portal has a different style, a unique aesthetic and unique functions - however, all said-and-done both basically offer the same end result - to assist you to locate local homes that match your preferences, and to view the detailed descriptions, photos and novelties of that home.
