How can estate agents help you?
No matter what step of the property ladder you're on, an estate agent will work with you to manage the transactions and paperwork involved, as well as to help you understand each stage of the process and ensure that you are aware of your rights and responsibilities.
For those who are seeking to sell or let out a property, an estate agent will be able to provide advice about the housing market and appraise the building to help you set a price that gets you the best return without scaring away potential buyers or renters. This figure will be based on a number of factors, including the state of the property, the location and recent sold house prices in the area.
They will also be able to market the property appropriately. This will include commissioning professional photos, creating floor plans and writing descriptions. The relevant information will then be posted on the agency's own websites and window displays, as well as on internet property portals or national publications as required.
