Here are some points to consider when deciding whether to find an estate agent to help you market and sell or let your property.
Because we are all proud of our homes
People viewing a property may well be an unkind group, marching around the house like royalty, making unkind assessments and making discontented faces. Even the nicest houses are sometimes in for criticism, just for the reason that one person's like is another person's non-preference. So it is perhaps best if you let a Trafford Park property agent take property viewers around your property - and leave it to them to filter back to you any worthwhile comments. Nobody likes to have their home picked on by visitors.

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.

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. Trafford Park property hunters will mainly prefer a "blank canvas" to a scheme that sticks out as being dated.
Molehills And Ants Nests - If your garden suffers from Mole Hills or ants nests, then take appropriate action to eliminate these pests (humanely, of course). These garden pests could be off-putting to Trafford Park property buyers.
Become Energy Efficient - If you're marketing your home for sale then Trafford Park purchasers will be searching for homes with energy efficiency, as these properties will be cheaper to keep, and simpler to re-sell later on. A knowledgeable Trafford Park property agent should be able to advise you and direct you to the right resources for converting your house to be increasingly energy saving. It is a requirement that an energy assessor will come and assess your property for its current and future achievable Energy Efficiency Rating and an existing and potential Environmental (CO2) Impact Rating. This certification is required prior to taking your property to the market.

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 Trafford Park 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 Trafford Park 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.
Buy And Refurbish In A Risky Market
I speculate how many individuals got caught badly in the slump in the marketplace, when they bought a property at what looked like a bargain value, spent considerable money improving it, in the empty aspiration of selling it on at a profit. Very many, I'm convinced! The question is... is there nevertheless cash to be made? How can the danger be minimized? When you catch sight of a prospective home, go fetch a Trafford Park estate agent, or more than one, and find an professional opinion. How much is the house in actual fact worth now? How much will it be worth if it was finished up to a high-quality state? Locate a builder who is used to subbing out the many aspects of the renovation trade, and pick up a credible quotation for the overhaul job. Now calculate your possible income, and calculate how seriously the market would need to downturn to erase that profit, and land you in arrears. Now you should have a realistic assessment of the risk. Don't forget... it's straightforward to start going in excess of plan on the overhaul. Make allowances for this! These are just some suggestions... not advice! Good luck!
