If you are selling your property you want the reassurance that you are receiving the best service possible from your agent. To know that they are being proactive throughout the whole process from marketing to completion. An agent should assist from start to finish. Guiding through each stage for a smooth transaction.

Firstly, an agent should provide an insight into the current state of play of the market. They should know exactly what is in demand and the prices that are being achieved. Armed with this knowledge they can advise whether the price you want to achieve is realistic.

A good agent will come to inspect the property to help provide a market appraisal and to advise if there are any remedial works that need carrying out to help sell the property quicker. This could be a fresh coat of paint in a modern shade or simply giving the property a declutter.

Additionally, an agent will know what the latest fashionable interior trends to apply to your property to increase its saleability.

Once a price has been set a marketing strategy needs to be devised to ensure the property gets the exposure it needs. It should be uploaded onto their website with photographs as well as other property portals too.

Social media is becoming a popular tool for agents so they may use platforms such as Facebook, Instagram or even LINE too. A keen agent will also ring round their list of purchasers to let them know that they have a new instruction that may fit their requirements.

After viewings make sure that your agent gives you some feedback. This could range from comments about the dated kitchen, the musty smell in the bedroom or even that the place could do with a quick clean. That way you will know what people are and are not keen on to help adjust the price or make a few small changes to help future viewings.

Remember any agent want to collect their commission so they should be working hard to sell your property quickly. You can do your bit too but always being contactable to answer any questions and to make sure the property can be accessed for viewings even at short notice.
