It’s no secret that buying and selling a property can be stressful as there are so many things to consider. One of the things buyers often contemplate, is if ditching the estate agent and becoming a DIY buyer is a good approach when attempting to save money in the buying or selling process.
This being said, the majority of people do choose to use an estate agent. After all, estate agents are experts in the selling of a property and a good one, can be worth their weight in gold as they will ensure your move goes as smoothly as possible.
Here are our top reasons for using an estate agent:
Your agent is there to ensure your property gets seen. They are experts in marketing your property to the widest possible audience. In fact, it is likely that an estate agent will already be in contact with a substantial number of potential buyers who may be interested in viewing your home.
Moreover, they will arrange and conduct viewings, making sure all buyers are properly vetted and ready to buy. Often, estate agents are even present at viewings, in order to answer questions that may arise.
2. Marketing Power
Your estate agent is likely to have a number of channels through which they can advertise your property. These range from “For Sale” signs to website publicity, social media exposure and even listings in local and national newspapers or magazines.
A good estate agent can offer professional photographs and floor plans to help buyers get a better understanding of your property. Professional photographs can help increase the number of viewings your property will receive.
Every picture taken should tell a story as each buyer could be making a potential buying decision on the basis of what they might see online. A good image is an effective way of conveying value and desirability.
Your estate agent will negotiate with buyers so you don’t have to. They will be equipped to manage the negotiation on your behalf and ensure you get the best deal possible. For example, in many cases a buyer will make an offer that is below the asking price; your estate agent will be prepared for this and can best advise you on what your next steps should be.
In the instance a problem might arise, your estate agent will provide you with the best advice and help you overcome any obstacles which may be standing in the way of a quick sale.
6. Sealing The Deal
An estate agent will see the deal through to the end. The process of closing a deal can be a lengthy and often time consuming one. Your agent can help deal with surveyors, solicitors and mortgage brokers to help get the deal done.
