Should I use a Stockport solicitor for my conveyancing?
There's no real need to use a solicitor located in Stockport to do your conveyancing. Your whole case can be managed efficiently by post, email and telephone.
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.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Stockport 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.
In The Know
A good Stockport 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.
Although you may be confident that you're more than capable of managing the sale of your own property, the truth of the matter is that many of us have precious little spare time. Stockport applicants will not appreciate having to arrange viewings around your schedule. In all likelihood you will achieve a faster sale if you use a good Stockport estate agent.
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.

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.
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. Stockport property hunters will mainly prefer a "blank canvas" to a scheme that sticks out as being dated.
Have Realistic Expectations About Current Market Conditions - Like a lot of markets in Great Britain, the property market in Stockport has been better. You should be sensible with regards to the true value of your house if you're wanting a quick sale. This could prove to be hard work, especially so if you stretched too far on your mortgage when you purchased your property. Consider discussing your circumstances with your local Financial Adviser, and with your property agent to come to an agreement of a realistic market valuation for your property.
Be choosy about pictures. - Your agency (or yourself - should you elect to engage the sell your own property model) will be required to take photographs of the interior and outside of the property. This is a must to have it displayed in an attention grabbing manner on the WWW, and in information brochures. Make certain each photo advertises the property or living area to the very best extent. Ensure that the angle and lighting makes for a flattering and attractive image. Remove as much junk and clutter as you can prior to photographing a room or garden area - clutter will cause your home to look smaller and unattractive. Don't include photos with your digits, cats or smoking paraphernalia in them!

Food For Thought
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 Stockport 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 Stockport 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.
Differences in Legal Fees - Why do fees jump around between different solicitors?
Why is it that there is so much of a variance in legal professional fees when it pertains to buying and the sale of property? This is asking a very important question, and I'm certain that you are pondering whether it has something to do with the standard of service? You will be surprised, but the answer is typically NOT AT ALL. The usual rule is : you only get out what you put in. Not in this case. It depends on the scale of the solicitor's busienss. There are solicitors firms that only work with property related business, and on a very large scale. They specialise and are very much experienced and can pass down large price benefits to you.
