Property expert David Leake of Housesetc talks to us about why we should always choose a local estate agent.
The range of estate agent business models has never been bigger. Here are just a few reasons why we think it’s best to choose local.
Having knowledge of the availability of properties in your area will prove a huge help when it comes to being realistic about how your house may sell and for how much. Local agents are best placed to spot trends and gaps in the market too, helping you sell at a timescale to suit you. Having your estate agent on the doorstep allows you to not only keep in regular contact but agents are also on hand to assist with viewings and are just around the corner should any concerns arise.
Whilst plenty of websites can offer a valuation without seeing your home, a professionally qualified local agent will be more in tune with the marketplace and can offer you a realistic price.
