Why use a Stirling Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Stirling 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.
In The Know
A good Stirling estate agent will already have a shortlist of potential buyers (applicants) on their books, who may immediately want to view your property. This could result in a quick sale.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Stirling property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Stirling 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 Stirling purchasers.
Good Local Knowledge
An estate agent or letting agent in Stirling is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.
A good Stirling 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 Stirling 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 Stirling 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.

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 ragged 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.
Scrub Up - Don’t be scared to get out your favourite cleaning products and really get stuck into those tired areas of your property. The ’nearly new’ look of kitchen units, appliances and bathroom furniture will really go down well with Stirling buyers.
Be Energy Efficient - If you are selling your home then Stirling purchasers are likely to be looking around for properties which are energy efficient, as these houses should be less expensive to run, and easier to re-sell at a later date. A good Stirling property agency will be equipped to advise you and direct you to the right resources for converting your home to be increasingly energy saving. The selling process now requires that an energy efficiency assessor will visit and assess your property for a current and future achievable Energy Efficiency Rating and an existing and potential Environmental (CO2) Impact Rating. This certification is necessary before to taking your property to the market.
Tidy The Garden - Perhaps you are not much of a gardener, your lawn is un-cut and the whole place is looking rather messy! Well it’s time to get busy. A badly presented garden may well be off-putting to Stirling buyers. Cut the lawn, trim the edges and remove as much junk and clutters as you can. A few plastic pots filled with colourful flowers could really change the appeal of your property.

Food For Thought
Not All Agencies Are Equal
Not all property agencies are of the same standard. When you are deciding on a Stirling property agency to market your home it is well worth asking many queries. How much will they charge? Do they do accompanied viewings? Are they friendly? What do their property brochures and window display brochures appear like? What are the optional extras that you may have to find money for to benefit from? How frequently will your home appear in your local property listings? What is their applicant database shaping up like? Are they dressed for business? These are all queries well worth asking before engaging them. Remember, you should be hunting for the most diverse offering of services for the lowest fee.
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 Stirling 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 Stirling 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.
