Don't forget: The only way to get your property listed for sale on Rightmove, and in front of the UK's biggest home-moving audience, is by instructing one of the thousands of estate agents that advertises with us.
Why instruct a property agent at all?
Ask anyone who has sold a property before and they will tell you that selling a property is both complicated and time-consuming. By instructing an agent to sell your home you gain their knowledge of the local property market, as well as their expertise in selling property just like your own.
A good estate agent will be able to:
- Recommend an asking price for your property based on their knowledge of local market conditions.
- Demonstrate a knowledge and understanding of the best marketing tactics required to ensure your property gets seen by the biggest audience of buyers, such as ensuring it's featured in places such as Rightmove!
- Ensure your property gets the attention it deserves by knowing the best ways to present it online.
- Provide you with personalised reports on your property's Rightmove performance and advice on how to increase its performance further.
- Reduce the stress involved with selling your property by negotiating on your behalf and helping you through the tricky exchange and completion stages of the deal.
How to choose an estate agent
Ultimately, you should choose an estate agent that you feel comfortable dealing with and who you feel will look after your best interests as a seller. To help you make a decision, we would recommend asking prospective agents the following:
- How and where your property will be advertised - now's the time to make sure that your property will be advertised on Rightmove!
- How your property compares with similar properties already on the market in terms of price and presentation.
- Ask to see examples of their success in selling properties like yours. You can then see how they have priced, promoted and presented other similar properties.
- You'll obviously be interested in the agent's fees for selling your property, but also ask about the length of any exclusivity period (i.e. a period of time during which you cannot market your property with another estate agent) and ensure you are clear on how to serve notice should you wish to.
- How often you can expect feedback from the agent while your property is on the market. A good agent should help you feel informed and in control throughout the process.
Talk to your agent about standing out on Rightmove
Having chosen a Rightmove agent, ask your agent about making your property stand out from others on the market. A Premium Listing or Featured Property on Rightmove are great ways of creating more interest from potential buyers.
