If you’re planning on selling your house in the near future then it is worth starting to look for a good estate agent right now. We all know that moving house is one of the most stressful things you can do but finding the right estate agent can help reduce the stress and anxiety associated with moving house.

One of the best ways to choose your estate agent is to look at the current property market in your area and identify those estate agents who are selling properties quickly. A good estate agent should be able to combine both the ability to sell houses quickly and at a good market price. It is also worth asking estate agents to provide references from recent sellers so you can ask them about their recent experience of using that estate agent. It is also a good idea to talk to close friends and family who have recently sold property in the local area.

Your chosen estate agent shouldalso have a thorough knowledge of the local area and be able to provide high quality information to potential buyers about the location your property. Such information is essential in securing the best possible market price for your property.

Next, find out exactly what their costs will be for selling your house. You do not want to get to the end of the process and find out you have not budgeted enough money for the estate agent fees. They should be able to provide you with a clear pricing plan that shows you exactly what you will be charged for each of their service options. Many estate agents will also give you different price options that take into account the length of time it takes them to sell your property and will offer a price discount guarantee if they are unable to sell your property within a certain amount of time.

However, you want to make sure that your property sells as quickly as possible and for the biggest profit. A good estate agent will have highly sophisticated marketing and advertising tactics that take full advantage of the internet for selling your property. They should also be confident in directing buyers who are actively looking to buy properties within your area to your property if it meets their individual needs.

A good estate agent will also organise all house viewings to fit around your own individual work schedule. They will also provide someone to hold the viewings in your absence if it is not possible for you to be there yourself. Many estate agents will also be able to give you advice on the best way to present your property during viewings.

Finally, your chosen estate agent should be able to clearly explain the whole process of selling your house and provide a named contact who can answer any queries that you may have. A good estate agent will be able to take you through the whole valuation process and guarantee to get you the best possible price for your house.
