Choosing the Right Estate Agent or Letting Agent:
Experienced – what qualifications do they have, and how long have they worked in the industry?
Enthusiastic – they’re selling or letting your home and should show enthusiasm to finding the right buyer or renter
Helpful – provide insights about how they will market the property, explain processes and always encourage queries
Approachable – for many people, buying and selling a property is an entirely new concept. Therefore, the agent should be friendly and approachable, ready to guide where needed
Knowledgeable – able to demonstrate their knowledge of the local area and surrounding postcodes, including sold prices, popular property types and average sale time for houses
Professional – be a member of a professional body, like Propertymark.
