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.
If you want to have a go at something complicated then it's usually prudent to either get advice from an expert, or to get an expert to complete the task for you. Selling or buying homes in Wakefield is no exception . A percentage of property transactions can turn our to be extremely easy, but many others are not. If a problematic issue pops up during the process, you will be glad of the guidance and expertise of your agent.
In The Know
A good Wakefield estate agent will already have a shortlist of potential buyers (applicants) on their books, who may immediately want to view your property. This could result in a quick sale.
Many agents in Wakefield will give the option to do accompanied viewings on your behalf. The agent will big-up the house to viewers, highlighting the best attributes. Most viewers are increasingly prone to tell an agent, than the property owner, what they find unattractive about a house. This means that if you employ the services of a Wakefield estate agent, you are likely to receive honest feedback about what details of your property need fixing to achieve a faster sale, and at the highest achievable value.

Clean your windows - You should be able to clean your ground-floor windows, frames and sills easily - and a professional window-cleaner won't be expensive to get the upper floor windows done too. To make the best possible impression get your windows cleaned to a shine. Make sure your window ledges are tidy and that curtains and blinds are neatly arranged. If you have net curtains, consider giving them a clean (or your actual curtains if they're looking grubby).
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!
Rent Some Storage - If your house is very cluttered, then you may want to consider renting a storage unit in Wakefield. Removing large, unnecessary articles of furniture and other clutter will give the appearance of larger rooms. Viewers like to see a reasonably blank canvas, that they can really imagine making their own. The disadvantages are the weekly costs of storage, and the double-handling of the furniture, that you will now have to move twice.
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
Any property agent in Wakefield could lay claim to having a significant number of potential property applicants on their computer system but you must establish what systems are in place to qualify those buyers as suitable to view your property and proceed to buy your house. A good percentage of applicants may indicate an interest in your home but an experienced property agent can identify those applicants who have a serious and pressing need to buy and should as a consequence be showing serious intention to view your house.
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.
