Why use a Waterside Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Waterside 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.
Waterside estate agents have many local industry connections. They may be able to recommend a good local solicitor, mortgage broker, insurance broker or financial adviser in Waterside.
The Right Value
A Waterside-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Waterside.
A good Waterside 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 Waterside property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Normally an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Waterside 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 property buying and selling process is a complex one and can be very daunting, especially for first time sellers. Your estate agent will be able to guide you through the process of selling your home - and explain all of the steps. Some estate agents even have an Independent Financial Adviser in-branch who can help you with any financial questions you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.

Be particular about pictures. - Your estate agent (or you - if you elect to use the for sale by owner model) will need to get photographs of both the inside and outside of the property. This is a requirement to get it listed in a winsome manner on the Internet, and in property particulars. Make sure each and every picture promotes the property or living area to the very best extent. In addition, make certain that the angle and light source creates a flattering and attractive image. Hide as much junk as you are able to before taking photos of a room or exterior aspect - junk will cause your property to appear less roomy and unattractive. Do not take photographs with people, cats or ashtrays in them!
Animals in your gardens. - If you're selling your property in Waterside then you aught to inspect your lawns for nasty mess deposited by either your own pets or yourneighbour's dogs or cats. If your garden looks like it is being used as a toilet, then this can surely make a bad impression . Always clean up after your own cat or dog, and consider using anti dog or cat countermeasures to frighten away and deter your neighbouring property's cats and dogs. Please double check that such devices are not cruel.

Food For Thought
What does "Completion" mean?
This is when the buyer becomes the legal owner of the property and can move in. As early as possible on the agreed day, the buyer's solicitor will send the balance of the purchase money to the seller's solicitor. The seller's solicitor will notify the estate agent and the seller when the transaction is complete. Only then should the keys be released to the purchaser. This usually takes place around noon but could be as late as 5pm.
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.
