Experience counts when it comes to selling homes
THERE’S much more to estate agency than meets the eye. Most agents will visit and value your home, prepare compelling marketing materials with quality photographs, reach a wide audience via property websites and social media and call their database of registered clients in search of the perfect buyer.
But it’s not just about finding a buyer; new research from reveals that 28% of home buyers have had a purchase fall through after an offer was accepted, leaving them on average £2,899 out of pocket for conveyancing, survey, mortgage valuation or brokerage fees.
And, while some of the issues when a chain breaks cannot be avoided, it can really pay to have an expert in your corner, resolving any local issues where possible.
Estate agents have been in business for a long time because of what they offer.They have specialists on hand every step of the way who know their local property market and can advise you exactly how you should market your home.They arrange and accompany viewings giving you peace of mind, answer questions from potential buyers, then negotiate on your behalf, checking that offers are genuine and get you the best deal.
They keep in touch with the solicitor and mortgage adviser to make sure everything runs smoothly and the sale sails through to completion.
Navigating the minefield between offer and completion often requires an experienced negotiator, one who knows the local property market like the back of his or her hand, first hand. Expertise is required and there is no substitute for experience. It can take months to reach completion, but it is in the estate agent’s interest to do so because until that point you won’t have paid a penny for the work that they have put in. Competition between agents ensures that fees are kept modest and a commission basis drives results towards the best price being achieved for the vendor.
