Why use a Wakefield Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Wakefield 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 Wakefield is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.
Wakefield Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People
It requires a particular personality to be a good sales person. It takes charisma, a winsome manner, good character, and perhaps even good looks. These are simply attributes that some of us lack. Hopefully your Wakefield real estate agent will posses the attributes of a good sales man or woman, and close the sale faster for you and at a better price than you could achieve if you tried to sell your own property!
Because we are all proud of our houses
Those desiring to view your home may well be an insensitive bunch, marching all over the house like celebreties, offering unkind comments and pulling unhappy faces. Even perhaps the nicest houses are in for a bashing, simply for the reason that the first's preference is some other person's non-preference. For this reason it's perhaps for the better if you let a Wakefield estate agent take viewers about your property - and leave it to them to feed back to you any worthwhile feedback. No one enjoys having their house disrespected by visitors.
You local Wakefield 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.

Conveyancing - When you are buying or selling Wakefield 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.
Make some coffee - Most people love the smell of brewing coffee, even if they don't like to drink it. Consider putting on some fresh coffee just before a viewing, it's sure to create a welcoming odour for those Wakefield viewers!
Clean out the loft - get rid of all the clutter. - Some viewers will want to take a look in the attic . If it is stuffed full of rubbish that has the appearance that it may remain there then this will be very off-putting. Additionally, a attractive empty loft-space will give the appearance that it may have loft-conversion potential.
Be Realistic About Current Market Conditions - Like the rest of the U.K., the housing market in Wakefield has been stronger. You need to be real with regards to the true market value of your house if you desire a fast sale. This could prove to be difficult, especially if you overstretched on your property loan when you bought your house. Think about having a chat about your circumstances with your IFA, and your property agent to agree a suitable asking price for your home.

Food For Thought
When a price is agreed for a property, what happens next?
If you have not already done so, you should instruct a solicitor immediately. You should then give the contact details to your estate agent. The estate agent will then write to all interested parties to get the ball rolling.
Agents Commission Rates Disambiguated
Many property sellers are unaware of the different commission rates that Wakefield estate agents will charge for the sale of your home. It is a known fact that not all Wakefield agencies charge identical rates and there's a good reason for this - so don't make your selection of agency based on just the price. A number of Wakefield estate agents could quote standard rates but looking at the house, may conclude that the property may be more difficult to sell than their usual houses because it's in high crime area or in a poor state of repair warranting more marketing costs and sales effort. Conversely, some estate agents may quote a lower than normal rate if they think that they can sell your house easily and quickly. A number of Wakefield agents simply do not suffer with the running costs of bigger agencies who have made high levels of investment in high street offices, high quality staff training, sophisticated computer software and top-of-the-range marketing collateral and resources. That is not to say that low cost commission rates will manifest in poor customer service and professionalism because one can on occasion experience inadequate service when dealing with bigger chain firms too. Cut price Wakefield estate agents typically require a higher turnover of properties to survive and they are therefore far less prone to show concern with regards to achieving the best value for their vendors. The final total of the post-sale proceeds in your bank account is surely more important than the percentage fee your Wakefield estate agent has charged in commission costs.
