Getting Value for Money When Selling Your Kent Property

Getting Value for Money When Selling Your Kent Property

In this two-minute read, we look at how to select the
best value partners for your property sale.

We all know there’s
money to be made from selling property, but there are agency and legal costs
associated with this, too. Consider these costs as an investment in steering
your sale in the right direction.

You get what you pay for

When it comes to selecting the estate agent entrusted to sell your
property, human nature may see us gravitate to the one with the cheapest rate. After
all, these can differ wildly from a fixed fee right up to 2% of your sale
price. But, as the old saying goes, you really do get what you pay for.

Find an A* agent

A lot goes into selling a house. It’s
not just about uploading to Rightmove or Zoopla, contrary to popular belief.
Listen out for agents who talk about pricing strategy, presentation of your
property, and how they will create demand for your home. These are the agents
who will get you the best price for your property and will be worth every penny
of their sale fee once the transaction completes.

Your property team

It’s not just a great estate agency that
makes a big difference to how successful and smooth your sale goes. You also
need an experienced and professional conveyancing solicitor to handle the legal
stuff. Again, not all solicitors operate at the same level so look for
recommendations and check out their reviews.

Committed conveyancers

The number one question to ask your prospective conveyancing
solicitor is: “are you no sale, no fee?”. If the answer is a “yes”, they’ll be highly
motivated to get the sale over the line and their invoice submitted.

The longer a conveyancing solicitor takes to get the job done, the
more likely it is that your property sale will fall through. Focus brings a
proactive and efficient approach. Conveyancing solicitors who are committed to
the job and agree to a fee on completion is the best way to achieve this.
