A Practical Guide to choosing an Estate Agent
  • paragraph

    When the time comes to sell your home, how do you choose which agent to appoint? You have a tremendous choice of agencies and, on the surface, most appear to do more or less the same thing. But there is far more to moving than simply finding a buyer and it is critical that when the time comes, you choose the right agent for you, your property and your situation.

    Many agents make unrealistic claims and rash promises, so here are some guidelines which we hope will help you choose the right agent to sell your home. 

  • paragraph

    Local Expertise

    Buyers overwhelmingly prefer to work with local experts, whom they regard as 'in the know', so choose a well established local agent.

  • paragraph

    Valuation

    Beware! It is well known that some agents deliberately over-value in order to impress you to secure your instruction, so don't fall into the trap of simply choosing the agent with the highest valuation.  An inflated price attracts the wrong buyers to your property and the right buyers might never see it, resulting in the property going stale on the market. This often leads to the property falling below its true market value.

     

  • paragraph

    Commission

    Many sellers are unaware of the considerable differences between agencies and have no alternative than to decide whom to appoint on the level of commission charged. This is often a huge mistake and is a bit like buying a car purely on price considerations. All cars go from A to B, but the vast price differential is related to issues of quality, reliability, security performance and the whole driving experience.

    The same is true of estate agents. Some agents simply cannot afford to provide a level of service that is either effective, or makes the selling experience hassle free. For example, they are often the last firms to provide adequate staff training or post-offer support, resulting in; missed offers, slower sales and lower prices.

    Cut-price estate agents usually require a higher turnover of stock in order to survive and therefore are less likely to be concerned about securing the best price for their clients. The net amount in your pocket is surely more important than the fee charged!

  • paragraph

    Communication

    Too many agencies only communicate good news, that's easy! Good agents are in frequent contact with their clients and have the confidence to advise if anything needs to be done to improve your chances of a sale.

    When you have found a buyer it is vital that your agent is pro-active in assisting the progression of the sale towards completion. Too many agents think that the sale is done when the buyer is found, and some sales negotiators have an incentive to arrange sales but not necessarily to see them through to completion.

    Many a sale has been lost due to poor follow-up or inadequate liaison with surveyors or solicitors. About 35% of sales arranged in England and Wales fall through. Make sure you choose an agent who have experienced staff that provide a dedicated sales progression service who are trained to spot potential difficulties long before they arise.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Perfect mix of friendliness and professionalism

      'To whom it may concern.My husband and I have just recently sold our house using George David Estate Agents. We cannot praise their service highly enough. Right from the start, when they came to value our property, they showed the perfect mix of friendliness and professionalism, they were always on time for their appointments and made the task of opening the house for viewings hassle free.Our property sold quickly and Richard Pratt and his associates continued to be efficient and informative whilst dealing with our solicitors and helping to move the process along.Considering one's usual reticence for using Estate Agents, and having previously instructed local Estate Agents which did not live up to expectation, we would have no hesitation recommending the team at George David to anyone considering selling their home.

      Faultless and proactive

      Dear Richard I just wanted to pop you a note to say a massive Thank you to you and all your Team at George David, in particular Andy Barnes, for the excellent service we received on the successful sale of my cottage. It was a very tough market but you produced a great amount of interest. I must highlight the service we received throughout - in comparison with other experiences, faultless and proactive, with all viewings accompanied, prompt feedback on each, a quick negotiation period and updates throughout the conveyancing. Your staff were always quick to get back to me if I had a query. This move meant a lot to us and thanks to you we are happily settling into our new house. We would not hesitate in recommending George David to anyone in the Aylesbury area or surrounding villages.
