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.
Many agents in Wakefield may offer to undertake accompanied viewings in preference to you showing viewers around your own property. The agent will big-up the house to those viewing it, highlighting the most attractive features. Most viewers are increasingly likely to tell an estate agent, than the home owner, what they dislike about a house. This means that if you use a Wakefield agent, you are likely to get honest information about what details of your property need fixing to achieve a faster sale, and at the highest price.
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.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Wakefield area will give your agent the edge when trying to find a buyer for your property. They will know the location of local amenities, the local schools, which areas are well thought of and the pricing and sales trends. They will also be able to advise you of the best price that can be achieved in the area if various improvements are made to a property, and how much to reduce by to get a fast 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.
Become Energy Efficient - If you are placing your home on the market then Wakefield purchasers will be looking around for properties which are energy efficient, as these houses should be less expensive to keep, and simpler to re-sell later on. A good Wakefield estate agency will be able to give you advice on this matter and direct you to the right resources for converting your home to be improved so as to be energy saving. The selling process now requires that an energy assessment professional will visit and assess your property for a current and future potential Energy Efficiency Rating and an existing and achievable Environmental (CO2) Impact Rating. This assessment is required before to taking your property to the market.
Pet Problems - If you own pets, then consider re-housing them while your try to sell your home. At the very least, keep them out of sight during viewings, and make sure that you have removed as much trace of them as possible. Cat litter trays, bowls of pet food, pet hairs, stains on carpets and scratched up walls or furniture can be off-putting. There is also the issue of allergies to consider. Many people are allergic to pet hairs and dust. A home that sets off a reaction may put off otherwise keen Wakefield viewers. Consider calling in a local Wakefield cleaning specialist to revive carpets.
Renew Scruffy Flooring - Linoleum flooring in bathrooms and kitchens can often look very bedraggled after years of use. It is inexpensive to replace. Consider renewing it if it looks worse for wear.

Food For Thought
The UK Credit Crunch Hits The Housing Market Hard
The credit crunch has greatly reduced UK house prices. House prices have fallen significantly since summer 2008, when they were at their peak. They fell at their fastest rate for 25 years. They have now started a slow recovery. This is still a good time for a first time buyer to consider a purchase, but worrying for property owners who over-stretched their mortgage.
