Advice

By in Blog with 0 Comments

Straight-talking sincere advice can be invaluable in a world where too many people would just tell you what you want to hear! For example, the oldest trick in the book is for an agent to suggest an inflated suggested asking price in order to impress you enough to secure your business, only for tears to follow down the line when the property has gone stale on the market and the price has to be dramatically reduced in order to secure a sale.

So good advice is key. A good estate agent recognizes their responsibility not only to address any questions posed by the vendor, but sometimes, where appropriate, to go beyond the obvious. This is because there is often more than meets the eye to an otherwise straightforward market appraisal.

For example, a vendor might want a quick sale in order to relieve a financial problem. Yet it may be that the property could be let out readily and would immediately start to produce the income needed to solve the problem without the need for a sale.

Most people of course are keen to maximize their sale price and this is also your agent’s objective. So, let your agent advise you as there may be value in unexpected areas. Perhaps re-configuring the way in which your rooms are used in order to better fit with current lifestyles could increase the value of your property – if anyone knows what’s hot and what’s not it’s your local estate agent!

So, if you’d like some impartial advice, delivered with your best interests at heart, and with no obligation whatsoever, please feel free to contact us on 01242 257333 or 01452 597994.
