Local knowledge is very important when it comes to selling your home and there is a difference between local knowledge and knowledge gleaned from the internet. There is a lot of relevant information to find out about an area by looking online but when it comes to selling your home, you need to know more.
An independent estate agent doesn’t only know the average value and prices of homes in an area, they know why these prices are in place, which means they can provide a more accurate representation of your property. A local estate agent with experience in the market will also know the most likely buyer for your home, which makes it easier to stage the property to this market. It is essential to stage the property to the most likely buyer and this is information that only a local estate agent is likely to have.
Knowing about the local market is essential if you are looking to achieve success in the property market. If you are selling your home, the right estate agent will play a role in pinpointing the most likely buyers and then targeting these people in an effective manner. If you are buying, an estate agent with genuine local knowledge should have a good starting point for your search and they should be able to advise you on what area is right for your needs.
You will find that an independent agent is more likely to have a working knowledge of the local market and they should be able to guide you into making the right decisions.
Local knowledge is a great starting point but you’ll find that independent agents are the ones that will provide you with a better standard of service. Agents for nationwide companies can do a good job but they work to targets and they have scripts in place which means that they treat you and your property the same as they would every other property. This may not help in making a sale, particularly if your home has a unique feature or if your area appeals to certain people.
An independent estate agent is likely to be more flexible to working alongside you and they will be able to listen to your input. If you want to feel as though you are receiving a bespoke service and not being treated in a generic manner, choose an independent estate agent.
When you are selling your home, it is likely that you will need a range of work and services carried out, and an independent estate agent is likely to have a range of professionals who they can recommend. This may save you money but you’ll find that it provides peace of mind, which is certainly a great attribute to have when selling your home.
Another very strong reason to work with an independent estate agent is that buyers are happy working with them. An independent estate agent with a good reputation in the local area is trusted, which means that they will have prospective buyers for your home, which makes the process a whole lot easier.
When you are selling your home, it makes sense to get the best standard of help and guidance. This is why calling on an independent estate agent makes sense and at Nathan Andrew Estate Agents, we are always happy to help.
