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.
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.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Many agents in Wakefield will give the option to do accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. They will big-up the house to viewers, drawing attention to all of the best features. Some viewers are increasingly prone to tell an estate agent, than the home owner, what they don’t like about a property. This means that if you employ a Wakefield estate agent, you are likely to get honest information about what details of your house need fixing up to get a quick sale, and at the highest price.
The Right Value
A Wakefield-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Wakefield.

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.
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.
Pay For A Deep Clean - If a girl was going out on a important date, there's a reasonable chance she's either spend a lot of time at home getting ready, or even go to a Wakefield beauty salon. If you're trying to sell a Wakefield property then don't treat it any different! Consider getting in a deep-cleaning service. Prices, and level of service will vary, so look around! They will steam clean carpets, curtains and upholstery. They will get rid of all of the dirt that you may not even notice. Your oven will look like new! Hopefully the overall freshness and odour of your property will improve. This should really help with your sale!
Marketing Your Home Through an Estate Agent - Even though you may have thought you'd selected the best estate agent in the town of Wakefield, 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.

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 Wakefield 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 Wakefield 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.
What are searches?
As part of the process of purchasing your property, the solicitor you appoint will conduct searches on your behalf. (You must pay for these). The searches relate to the property you are buying - and check for various things. Is the current ownership of the property all in order? Is the seller in a legally sound position to do so? Is the environment OK (toxic ground, tree preservation orders, radon gas, flood-prone etc.). Is the land registered? What are the status of the mains water supply, drainage and sewerage? Are there mines or mining activity affecting the property? And so on. The purpose of the searches is to ensure that you are buying a property legally, and with no nasty surprises.
