Choosing the right estate agent
Choosing the right estate agent is critical to the successful sale of your property. Working with a professional agent who has an in-depth understanding and appreciation for the local and regional market place will ensure your property is marketed effectively to the right buyers.
However, selecting an estate agent can be a daunting task, especially with so many to choose from.
Recent research highlights that the general public have difficulties in distinguishing between estate agents and their comparative claims – creating a barrier to both trust and confidence.
Independent estate agents are ideally placed to help you sell your property. They have excellent local and regional knowledge, are recognised and respected in the local communities they serve, and will have developed enviable long-term relationships with local businesses and suppliers.
They are fully responsible and accountable for their actions; their livelihoods depend on the quality of service they provide and their ability to successfully deliver sales at the best possible price.
So how do you ensure that the estate agent you choose will deliver you the expertise and quality of service you require?
