Why use a Sunderland Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Sunderland 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 Sunderland is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.
A good Sunderland 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 Sunderland property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Normally an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Sunderland 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.
Use An Expert
If you want to have a go at a complex task then it is prudent to either find expert advice, or to hunt down an expert to complete the task for you. making the sale of or purchasing property in Sunderland is not an exception to the rule. Some property sales can prove to be very straightforward, but many others are quite the opposite. If a difficulty crops up as part of the process, you will be glad of the sound guidance and expertise of your agent.
The Right Value
A Sunderland-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Sunderland.

Tidy Up - Make sure that rooms are clean and tidy, especially bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen.
Conveyancing - When you are buying or selling Sunderland property, then one expense that is difficult to avoid is the legal cost. It really isn't a good idea to cut out the solicitor, as conveyancing is a complex process, and there are many pitfalls. The good news is this: There is no good reason to use a local solicitor - and AgentQuote.co.uk can help to find you a quality national solicitor who will do the work for a much cheaper price.
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.
Apply Pressure To The Estate Agent - Do not depend on the property agent to work too hard when drawing up the marketing brochure and populating the window display details. You should always look very carefully at what they have created and don't be afraid to insist that they execute changes to these items if you think that they simply have not put the required effort into this work. Check for good spelling and grammatical errors. Ensure that all of the particulars are accurate.

Food For Thought
Estate Agents Commission Rates Disambiguated
The vast majority of sellers are not aware of the different rates of commission that Sunderland estate agents will charge for the sale of your home. It is a known fact that not all Sunderland estate agencies charge the same rates and there's a good reason for this - so don't make your selection of agency on price alone. Some Sunderland estate agents could quote you their standard prices but evaluating the property, may conclude that the property is more difficult to market than their usual houses because it's in high crime area or in a poor state of repair meaning increased marketing costs and sales effort. Conversely, other agents may quote a smaller than usual rate if they conclude that they can sell your house without much effort and with great speed. Some Sunderland estate agents do not suffer with the running costs of larger agencies who have made high levels of investment in high street offices, top-level training for staff, sophisticated computer software and professional marketing collateral and resources. That is not to say that cut-price commission rates will deliver low quality customer service and professional standards because you can on occasion experience inadequacies when dealing with bigger firms too. Cut price Sunderland agents usually need a higher turnover of stock in order to survive and are as a consequence far less likely to show concern with regards to achieving the best price for their clients. The net amount of the post-sale money in your bank account is clearly more important than the commission your Sunderland agent has charged you in commission fees.
Your Lawyer's Work: Correspond with your new financer
A task the solicitor will do for you: Report back to your new financer, informing them on the occurrence of any issues with the title deeds of your Sunderland property, or with any of the special clauses they stipulated in the offer of finance.
