Why use a Wigan Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Wigan 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.
In The Know
A good Wigan 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.
A good Wigan 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 Wigan 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 Wigan 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.
A good estate agent in Wigan will be able to advise you on how to best present your property to potential purchasers.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Wigan 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.

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).
Do you have dirty carpets? - If you have dirty carpets in your Wigan property then it could really put off potential buyers and reduce your selling price. It's well worth calling in a local carpet cleaning firm to give them a good cleaning. They typically come to your home with a van and very long hoses and thoroughly steam and/or water clean your carpets - giving them a new lease of life. The van typically houses a powerful vacuum for a very thorough clean.
Get Painting - Consider some fresh paint. There’s a good reason why new builds in Wigan are usually presented in magnolia and white. The light colours make rooms look bigger and cleaner. White paint, in particular, makes kitchens and bathrooms look spick and span. Remember, that dark purple that you painted your bedroom in, that you totally love, may not be to Wigan buyer’s liking!
Make some coffee - Most people love the smell of brewing coffee, even if they don't like to drink it. Consider putting on some fresh coffee just before a viewing, it's sure to create a welcoming odour for those Wigan viewers!

Food For Thought
Property Brochures and Window Cards
A substantial number of agencies in Wigan use conventional window display cards as an element of the shop-front advertising display to market their properties. One of their standard services is that a set of particulars showcasing your property, to include some pictures, will also be prepared by them on your behalf. Always ensure that the window display card, sales particulars and all other associated news-sheet adverts are to the best standard. If you determine that your property agency has not suitably summarised your house or has failed to underline an attribute which you regard as a good feature or selling point then tell them about it and ensure that they amend the text.
Why Use A Solicitor?
Many people begrudge the money they have to spend when they buy or sell property. Who can blame them? The government's stamp duty, the estate agent's fee, the HIP pack, all the search fees, the new, more expensive land registry fee, and then of course the solicitor's fee. Some people try to cut out the estate agent, others try to cut out the solicitor. Cutting out a Wigan solicitor is a really bad idea! Use a qualified professional for your property transaction, or you are very likely to regret it!
