How choosing a new agent could boost your property sale

If you have your property on the market at the moment and are feeling disheartened or frustrated by a lack of viewings or interest, perhaps a change of agents is the answer to get your home sold. 
How choosing a new agent could boost your property sale
When you put your property on the market, most of us hope for a flurry of viewings, a couple of offers and an agreed sale within a few months. However, this isn’t always the case and it can lead to a feeling of frustration and uncertainty in the market. 

With summer on the horizon, it may just be that switching estate agents is just the thing that your home needs to sell. It can help boost interest with fresh and new marketing and to showcase your home to a new set of buyers. 

Follow these steps on how best to instruct a new estate agent: 

Check your contract - with your existing agent to find out how long you are tied in for, when you should give notice or if there is a withdrawal fee to pay. You don’t want to end up being liable for two sets of fees. 

Get a new valuation - the property market is ever changing so find out what it is worth in the current market. Getting the price right gives your property the best chance of being sold when it is relaunched. 

Marketing strategy - find out how many viewings you have had and any feedback from buyers. Passing this on to your new agent can help form a new marketing strategy and a fresh approach to finding a buyer. 

Freshen up - your new agent will likely arrange for new photographs to be taken. So freshen up and stage your rooms to really showcase your home’s best features. Where you can, take note of the feedback from previous viewings and see if you can address any issues mentioned. 

Sometimes, choosing a new estate agent with renewed enthusiasm for your home, coupled with a fresh marketing approach is just what your home needs to secure a sale this summer.
