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.
A good Wakefield 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 Wakefield property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Typically an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Wakefield 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.
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.
Although you may be confident that you're more than capable of managing the sale of your own property, the truth of the matter is that many of us have precious little spare time. Wakefield applicants will not appreciate having to arrange viewings around your schedule. In all likelihood you will achieve a faster sale if you use a good Wakefield estate agent.
Because we're all very proud of our houses
Property viewers can often be a brutal bunch, stalking around the house like royalty, offering unkind assessments and making discontented facial expressions. Even the best decorated homes are in for criticism, simply for the reason that one person's like is another person's dislike. So it is perhaps for the better to let a Wakefield property agent take viewers around your property - and leave them to filter back any worthwhile critisizm. Nobody enjoys having their house picked on by strangers.

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 Wakefield 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.
Clean your windows - If your windows or mirrors are looking grubby, consider mixing some white spirit vinegar with a little water and washing up liquid, popping the mixture in a spray-bottle and giving your windows and mirrors a clean. (use this cleaning tip at your own peril!). The washing liquid will act as a de-greaser and the vinegar will act as an anti-foamer / streaker. Grubby windows or mirrors will create a bad impression on Wakefield property buyers.
Sort out your lighting. - A bad lighting scheme can very much undersell your Wakefield 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.
Shop around for a proactive Wakefield estate agent - If you're putting your Wakefield property on the market - then it's important to shop around before choosing your Wakefield estate agent. The Internet affords the luxury of being able to read genuine customer feedback and reviews. For each agent in Wakefield 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.

Food For Thought
Online Compare-Conveyancing Services v Instructing A Local Solicitor
Lets agree respecting truth that the majority of folks don't need the expert assistance of a property lawyer for the express purpose of transfer of title, in the area of Wakefield, on a regular basis. It is only really a service that most people use only two-three occasions in a life; therefore, why expect consistency over the years? Just because a lawyer was good 12 years ago, it doesn't necessarily mean that their service is still high or that it is good value for money. It is well worthwhile making a comparison of conveyancer quotations on-line when a large cost saving can be made by engaging a solicitor using the WWW.
Variances in Legal Fees - Why do fees jump around from solicitor to solicitor?
Why is there is such a difference in the legal charges when it comes to buying and the sale of residential property? It's a good question, and I'm certain you're pondering if it has anything to do with the service you can expect? Surprisingly, the answer to this question is largely NO. The rule is this: you will only get the same that you pay for. This is not the case in this circumstance. It really does depend on the size of the solicitor's operation. There are solicitors firms that only work with property related matters, and on a very large design. They are much experienced and can pass on large price reductions to their customers.
