Why use a Bideford Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Bideford 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.
Seek Out Expert Advice
A Bideford property agent will be able to give an answer to any queries you might have in relation to the buying or sales processes.
You local Bideford Estate Agents will always be available, by telephone or email, to deal with enquiries about your property. If you try to DIY your house sale then you are likely to miss may opportunities because you are unlikely to be available to field enquiries.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Bideford property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Bideford estate agent will be able to guide you towards a price that strikes the right balance between being attractive to both you and any potential Bideford purchasers.
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 queries you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.

Be particular about photographs. - Your agent (or yourself - should you elect to engage the FSBO method) will need to take photographs of both the interior and outside of the property. This is a must to have it displayed in a winsome fashion on the WWW, and in property brochures. Ensure every photo really sells the property or living area to the best possible extent. Ensure that the angle and light source produces a cheerful and desirable image. Hide as much excess ornamentation as you can before taking photos of a room or exterior aspect - clutter will make your interior to appear smaller and unattractive. Exclude images with family members, dogs or smoking paraphernalia in them!
Do Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Bideford? If so, you may want to take a good, objective look around. How many small, simple jobs are there that you haven't bothered getting around to doing? The problem is that we become blind to the small flaws after a while (apart from the ones that annoy us), whereas an observant newcomer to your home will spot them straight away. We're talking about curling wall-paper, or borders just need sticking down; Marks on walls, that need wiping off; Dead flies or dust on a lamp-shade; Dirty windows; Old screw-holes in walls that need filling and touching up. Now is the time to put a day aside to do these little jobs, and help achieve the best price for you property.
Do you have dirty carpets? - If you have dirty carpets in your Bideford 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 normally 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 normally houses a powerful vacuum for a very thorough clean.
Mirror Mirror - Do you have a small room in your house? A carefully selected mirror can really help to improve the perception of the size of a room.

Food For Thought
Could it be wiser to use a local Bideford property solicitor?
generally speaking, this can be a much more expensive choice. If you are inclined to think that you need to walk into the solicitor's premises to speak with them, then it is probably better to pay the additional costs for the privilege of using a locally based solicitor. Don't forget, more and more conveyancing transactions in this day and age are dealt with remotely as clients take advantage of keen fees. More folks now instruct a property solicitor via the Internet than those who have received a recommendation from a friend.
When will I have to pay money out?
As a seller, you will have to pay for a Home Information Pack before marketing can begin. Once you have secured a sale, your Bideford solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. The balance of the money from the sale will come to you on the day of completion. The solicitor will take their fee out at this stage, as will the Bideford Estate Agent. As a buyer, your solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. On Exchange of Contracts, you will be asked by your solicitor to provide 5% or 10% of the purchase price. On the day of completion, your mortgage money will come in to your solicitor who will pass it on to the seller.
