Should I use a Stockport solicitor for my conveyancing?

Why use a Stockport Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Stockport 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.
Good Local Knowledge
An estate agent or letting agent in Stockport is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.
Some agents in Stockport may offer to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. They will big-up your house to those viewing it, highlighting the most attractive attributes. Some viewers are increasingly prone to tell an estate agent, than the property owner, what they find unattractive about a house. The result of this is that if you employ the services of a Stockport agent, you are likely to get honest feedback about what aspects of your house need changine to achieve a quick sale, at the highest achievable price.
Because we are all very proud of our houses
People viewing a property may well be a brutal bunch, stalking all over the house like royalty, making unplesant comments and making unhappy facial expressions. Even the best decorated homes are in for a bashing, just for the reason that the first's preference is some other person's dislike. So it is perhaps best to let a Stockport estate agent show property viewers about your home - and leave it to them to filter back any worthwhile comments. No one enjoys having their home picked on by strangers.
The Right Value
A Stockport-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Stockport.

Make some coffee - Most people love the smell of brewing coffee, even if they don't like to drink it. Consider putting on some fresh coffee just before a viewing, it's sure to create a welcoming odour for those Stockport viewers!
Be Realistic With Respect To Current Market Conditions - As with a lot of markets in Great Britain, the property marketplace in Stockport has seen better days. You should be sensible with regards to the true market value of your house if you want a fast sale. This might be troublesome, especially so if you overstretched on your mortgage when you bought your home. Think about discussing your circumstances with your local Independent Financial Adviser, and your estate agent to agree a realistic asking price for your property.
Spend Up To 1% - It is often advised that a seller should consider spending up to 1% of the sale value of the property on re-decoration, D.I.Y. and / or touching-up to achieve the best price. You should discuss this with a local Stockport specialist adviser or Stockport estate agent. A good Stockport estate agent may be able to point you in the right direction.
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 Stockport property buyers.

Food For Thought
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.
When should I instruct a solicitor?
Some Stockport 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 Stockport "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.
