Why use a Seaton Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Seaton 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.
The Right Price
Of course, everyone wants to sell their Seaton property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Seaton 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 Seaton 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 questions you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.
Years Of Experience
Years of experience in the Seaton 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.
Many agents in Seaton will give the option to undertake accompanied viewings on your behalf. The agent will show-off your house to viewers, drawing attention to all of the best features. Some viewers are more likely to tell an agent, than the home owner, what they dislike about a house. The result of this is that if you use a Seaton agent, you are likely to get honest information about what aspects of your house need dressing up to get a quick sale, and at the highest achievable value.

Modernise dated fittings. - It's arguable that some folk love "dated". The majority don't. If your house is looking more 80s than "now" you may want to consider zapping the worst offenders. Nasty wallpaper can be covered with a lick of paint, cupboard doors and tiles can also be painted over, and door handles are easily replaced. Seaton property hunters will mainly prefer a "blank canvas" to a scheme that sticks out as being dated.
Rent Some Storage - If your house is very cluttered, then you may want to consider renting a storage unit in Seaton. Removing large, unnecessary articles of furniture and other clutter will give the appearance of larger rooms. Viewers like to see a reasonably blank canvas, that they can really imagine making their own. The disadvantages are the weekly costs of storage, and the double-handling of the furniture, that you will now have to move twice.
Marketing Your Home Through an Estate Agent - Even though you may have thought you'd selected the best estate agent in the town of Seaton, 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.
Pet Problems - If you own pets, then consider re-housing them while your try to sell your home. At the very least, keep them out of sight during viewings, and make sure that you have removed as much trace of them as possible. Cat litter trays, bowls of pet food, pet hairs, stains on carpets and scratched up walls or furniture can be off-putting. There is also the issue of allergies to consider. Many people are allergic to pet hairs and dust. A home that sets off a reaction may put off otherwise keen Seaton viewers. Consider calling in a local Seaton cleaning specialist to revive carpets.

Food For Thought
Hand-outs and Window Display Cards
No few property agencies in Seaton use the more traditional window display cards as part of their store front advertising display to promote their properties. As standard, a set of particulars describing your house, to include some pictures, will in addition be prepared by them . Be certain that the window display poster, descriptive particulars and all other associated news-sheet adverts are to your satisfaction. If you determine that the agent has not correctly summarised the property or failed to underline an item that you regard as a feature or selling point then bring it to their attention and make certain that changes are made.
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 Seaton 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 Seaton 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.
