Selecting an agent

At Move with Us, we know that selling a house is likely to be one of the biggest transactions of your life. Because of this, it is essential to make sure you have the best team possible behind you each step of the way. Choosing the right estate agent is extremely important as they will be the key to selling your house. The estate agent you choose will be responsible, not only for valuing your house, but for marketing and viewings too so choosing the right agent is a big deal.

In choosing the right estate agent you need to:

  • Remember that different estate agents specialise in selling different types of houses. Some will deal in luxury homes whereas others deal holiday homes. Make sure you’ve looked at the estate agent’s credentials and chosen a suitable agent to sell your property.
  • Estate agents are responsible for marketing your property. Ask them about their marketing strategy and make sure they have access to all online property portals and local newspapers as well as advertising in their own window. Also be sure at this point to assess their marketing strategy in case a sale falls through. Having a good back up plan will ensure your house goes back on the market as quickly as possible.
  • Think about your local area. Do you see lots of the agent’s boards up in your local area? A strong local brand and a good reputation will help to sell your property.
