Top tips on finding the right estate agent

16June Author: Dave Dyer . Date Posted: 16th June, 2016

SELLING your home is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever have to make. That’s why choosing the right estate agent is essential if you want to make the process as stress-free and smooth as possible.
With this in mind, the Redrose team has put together some top tips for finding the best estate agent to market your property – and make sure moving day comes about sooner rather than later.

Ask for a free valuation

Most estate agents offer free market appraisals and it’s generally considered a good idea to ask for at least three different valuations so you can make an informed decision.
Here at Redrose, we believe in absolute openness with our potential clients. What we don’t do is offer initial sky-high valuations that gradually have to be revised downwards when your property fails to sell.
We think it’s far better to use our extensive knowledge of the property market to price your home realistically from the outset so you know exactly where you stand. (It helps, of course, that we achieve 97% of the asking price on average).

Next steps

A great estate agent doesn’t just stop at a valuation. They’ll take the time to understand all the features your property has to offer and explain in detail how your home will reach potential buyers.
For instance, we produce professional photographs as standard along with carefully worded property descriptions that really draw people in. (Speaking of lovely photos, have you seen our Property of the Month?)
Our fees are highly competitive and we NEVER charge our clients upfront. That means you only pay when your home is sold and completed – which is exactly as it should be.

Marketing credentials matter

Ask how and where your property will be advertised. If you choose Redrose, not only will your home take pride of place at our offices in Barnes Wallis Way, Chorley, but we’ll also share your details on RightMove and Zoopla for maximum exposure.

Will your property be a priority?

Your estate agent should never put your property at the back of the queue. If you’ve asked them to sell your home, then they should take a proactive approach to making sure you achieve the right result.
We maintain an up-to-date list of current buyers who are actively looking for a home in Buckshaw Village and beyond. As soon as you list your property with us, then we’ll be making steps to contact suitable prospective purchasers with your details.

Past success rates

Ask how successful your potential estate agent is at selling properties similar to your own. (By the way, we’re happy to report that we have been the market leaders for sales in Buckshaw Village for the past three years.)
