Why use a Swaffham Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Swaffham 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.
Some agents in Swaffham may give the option to do accompanied viewings on your behalf. The agent will show-off your house to viewers, highlighting all of the best features. Most viewers are increasingly prone to tell an agent, than the owner, what they find unattractive about a house. This means that if you use a Swaffham agent, you are far more likely to receive honest information on what aspects of your house need dressing up to achieve a fast sale, and at the highest value.
The property buying and selling process is a complex one and can be very daunting, especially for first time sellers. Your estate agent will be able to guide you through the process of selling your home - and explain all of the steps. Some estate agents even have an Independent Financial Adviser in-branch who can help you with any financial questions you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.
A good Swaffham 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 Swaffham property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Usually an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Swaffham 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.
Because Swaffham agents are specialists at marketing
Swaffham estate agents are experts at marketing houses. Not everyone is born a sales person - and the work of making a sale is often best left to the experts. Your property agent will know how to take flattering protographs of your property, the methods required to create a good write-up of it and where to market those details to attract the most enquiries.

Apply Pressure To The Estate Agent - Do not rely on the property agency to make a sufficient effort when creating the sales brochure and creating your window display poster. Ensure that you read very carefully what they have drafted and do not be afraid to insist that they execute changes to these items if you think that they simply haven't tried their best. Check spelling and errors of grammar. Ensure that all of the particulars are correct.
Sort out your lighting. - A bad lighting scheme can very much undersell your Swaffham property. Consider sorting your lighting out. Consult a specialist if you need to. Dark rooms can look small and poky. Rooms that are too bright can look harsh and unwelcoming. Very bright light will show up all marks, dirt, stains and dust.
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 Swaffham buyers.
Do Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Swaffham? If so, you may want to take a good, objective look around. How many small, simple jobs are there that you haven't bothered getting around to doing? The problem is that we become blind to the small flaws after a while (apart from the ones that annoy us), whereas an observant newcomer to your home will spot them straight away. We're talking about curling wall-paper, or borders just need sticking down; Marks on walls, that need wiping off; Dead flies or dust on a lamp-shade; Dirty windows; Old screw-holes in walls that need filling and touching up. Now is the time to put a day aside to do these little jobs, and help achieve the best price for you property.

Food For Thought
When should I instruct a solicitor?
Some Swaffham 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 Swaffham "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.
Far Too many agents are experts at only communicating good news, which is very painless to do. A reputable estate agent will make every effort at frequent contact with their sellers and will not be short in advising you should any matter need addressing to improve the probability of realising an effective sale transaction. Make sure that the agent you choose to sell for you in the Swaffham area is an excellent communicator.
