It is not an easy to choose someone to sell your house. Numerous estate agents frequent the high street wherever you live, but how do you go about choosing one and is there a better alternative? Here are a few tips to help you make up your mind:
When buying a house most people look for an estate agent close to where they want to live, but remember you do not have to sell your home through the same estate agent you are buying from.
Take a good look around the area for sold signs rather than for sale signs, read the ads in the local paper and seek personal recommendations.
A high valuation figure does not necessarily mean you have found a good estate agent, as anyone can pull a figure out of hat, achieving a sale at this price is a different matter.
When you instruct an estate agent always make sure you read the small print in the contract or you may find that you are tied to them longer than you wish. This means that if they offer a bad service you will not be able to change agents without paying a heavy penalty.
Of course you could always attempt to negotiate a lower fee with an estate agent, but this is not really advisable, as they may decide not to make a real effort to find a homebuyer for you.
