Why use a Thorpe Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Thorpe 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 Thorpe 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.
A good Thorpe 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 Thorpe 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 Thorpe 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.
You local Thorpe Estate Agents will always be available, by telephone or email, to deal with enquiries about your property. If you try to DIY your house sale then you are likely to miss may opportunities because you are unlikely to be available to field enquiries.
A good estate agent in Thorpe will be able to advise you on how to best present your property to potential purchasers.

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 Thorpe 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.
Marketing Your Home Through an Estate Agent - Even though you may have thought you'd selected the best estate agent in the town of Thorpe, they may have become complacent by relying on their reputation. Always satisfy yourself that they are doing the best job for YOU. Never mind their other clients - it's your home that needs the effort behind it to market and sell it as effectively as possible.
Shop around for a proactive Thorpe estate agent - If you're putting your Thorpe property on the market - then it's important to shop around before choosing your Thorpe estate agent. The Internet affords the luxury of being able to read genuine customer feedback and reviews. For each agent in Thorpe take the time to search the Internet and get a feel for what other clients are saying about them. You're looking for consistently good feedback. This should give you the confidence that they're going to do a good job for you, and get your property sold. If you come across bad feedback, then take the time to look at how old it is. Have been people been saying nicer things more recently? After all, if an agency had bad feedback in the past - and has improved, they could still be the best choice for you.
Gloss Work - Tired looking Gloss Work (such as doors, door frames and skirting boards) can make a property look shabby. Try to bring it all back to a shine with a damp cloth.

Food For Thought
What does "Completion" mean?
This is when the buyer becomes the legal owner of the property and can move in. As early as possible on the agreed day, the buyer's solicitor will send the balance of the purchase money to the seller's solicitor. The seller's solicitor will notify the estate agent and the seller when the transaction is complete. Only then should the keys be released to the purchaser. This typically takes place around noon but could be as late as 5pm.
Buy And Refurbish In A Risky Market
I speculate just how many people got trapped seriously in the dip in the marketplace, when they bought a home at what appeared to be a give-away value, spent thousands of pounds doing it up, in the vain chance of selling it on at a return. Very many, I'm convinced! The question is... is there ,in spite of everything riches to be made? How can the risk be minimized? When you spot a potential house, go get hold of a Thorpe property agent, or more than one, and get an professional opinion. How much is the home really worth now? How much will it be worth if it was finished up to a pleasant standard? Find a builder who is used to subbing out the countless aspects of the renovation trade, and get a genuine estimate for the restoration work. Now calculate your possible profit, and weigh up how dreadfully the marketplace would need to decline to clean out that return, and land you in debt. Now you should have a realistic consideration of the risk. Don't forget... it's straightforward to start going above financial plan on the renovation. Make allowances for this! These are just a few suggestions... not advice! Good luck!
