What to look for in your estate agent

What to look for in your estate agent

We have put together a short list of what we feel should be the key requirements of any good estate agent:
 

  • Experienced staff with local market knowledge
  • Local High Street office and point of contact
  • Modern user-friendly website
  • Multi-media marketing – including newspapers, magazines, social media and blog
  • Properties listed on Rightmove, Zoopla AND Prime Location portals
  • Strong local brand profile
  • Accompanied viewings always provided
  • Post-offer sales support from experienced estate agents
  • Floor plans included on property particulars
  • Professional Photography
  • Distinctive For Sale and To Let Boards
  • Members of reputable profession bodies

Lastly, always remember to ask your agent what their marketing plans will be IF your property remains unsold after 60 days. All too often a property can be overpriced just to win an instruction and you could be left in a long term contract with a property unsold!
