Selling Your Home Faster & For More Money
Selling your home is one of the biggest financial transactions most people will make. Over 90% of people start their search for a new property online. That means the presentation of your home is more crucial than ever. Choosing the right estate agent is vital to achieving the best price and the quickest sale time.
Here’s our quick guide for the key things to look for when choosing an estate agent to sell your home.
Get An Expert
Take a look at other properties any prospective agent you wish to use is selling. That’ll give a good idea of their quality of work. Pay attention to the quality of photographs and description. Also, the agent should know the area well and be able to talk local attractions. There are many estate agents in Glasgow to choose from.
Check their opening hours. Are they available at weekends and evenings? If you work full time you may want the agent to conduct viewings for you. Internet based agents often are unable to serve these needs well due to the wide areas they cover.
Value Added Features
Some estate agents in Glasgow offer a very basic package. Most focus just on photography and a brochure. Central Estate Agents offer additions like 3D Virtual Tours, reflective For Sale boards and beautifully presented brochures that show off your property in the best way possible.
Personality and Business Ethics
An estate agent should be able to tell you the total price for selling your home. Be aware of hidden fees and prices quoted plus VAT. Smaller businesses tend to offer a better personal service. Ideally the estate agent valuing your home should be the same person negotiating the sale. Most of all, trust your instincts. You should feel comfortable with both the personality and professionalism of the agent.
There are many Glasgow estate agents to choose from. Do your research. Meet a few agents at your home. Have some questions ready including fees and ask them to provide examples of similar properties they have sold. In the end, the transaction is as much about personal comfort with the agent as it is about cold hard facts.
