Why use a Worcester Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Worcester 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 estate agent in Worcester will be able to advise you on how to best present your property to potential purchasers.
Because we are all proud of our homes
Property viewers may well be a brutal bunch, marching all over the house like celebreties, making rude assessments and pulling discontented faces. Even the best of houses are sometimes in for a bashing, just because one person's preference is another person's dislike. For this reason it is perhaps for the better if you let a Worcester estate agent show property viewers around your house - and leave them to feed back any noteworthy critisizm. Nobody likes to have their house picked on by strangers.
Seek Out Sound Advice
A Worcester estate agent is well equipped to be able to answer any concerns you may have about the purchase or sales process.
Agent Accompanied Viewings
Some estate agents in Worcester will offer to undertake accompanied viewings on your behalf. They will show off your house to viewers, highlighting the best features. Most viewers are increasingly prone to tell an agent, than the owner, what they find unattractive about a property. The outcome is that if you employ a Worcester agent, you are far more likely to receive honest feedback on what aspects of your house need dressing up to get a faster sale, at the best 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).
Do you have dirty carpets? - If you have dirty carpets in your Worcester 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.
Weed the garden - One of the first things a potential buyer will see when they arrive at your property is the garden. If the garden is unkempt then it will be a bad start, and make the wrong first impression. Pick up litter, cut the lawn and pull / kill any weeds that are growing in or around the path or patio areas. Consider hiring a pressure washer to clean up your path if it's looking really grubby.
Marketing Your Home Through an Estate Agent - Even though you may have thought you'd selected the best estate agent in the town of Worcester, 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
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.
Agents Commission Rates Disambiguated
Many sellers are unaware of the differing commission rates that Worcester estate agents will charge for selling your property. It is a known fact that not all Worcester agencies charge the same rates of commission and there is a very good reason for this - so do not make your decision on price alone. Some Worcester agents may quote their standard prices but looking at the property, may determine that the property may be more troublesome to sell than their usual properties because it's in a bad area or in a poor state of repair warranting more marketing costs and effort. Conversely, other agents could quote a lower than usual rate if they think that they can sell your house without much effort and quickly. A number of Worcester estate agents simply do not suffer with the overheads of larger firms who have invested heavily in high street offices, top-level staff training, complex computer software and top-of-the-range marketing materials and resources. That's not to say that low cost commission charges will manifest in low quality customer service and professional standards because you can on occasion experience inadequacies when employing larger firms too. Cut price Worcester estate agents typically require a larger turnover of stock to survive and they are therefore far less likely to be concerned about achieving the best price for their clients. The final amount of the post-sale proceeds in your pocket is clearly of greater importance than the percentage fee your Worcester agent has invoiced in commission costs.
