Four myths busted about estate agents

Posted on

Here's the lowdown from Home Finders, Swindon's independent estate agent and property management company.

1. Estate agents just post stuff on the property portals. Anyone can do it.

When selling a property, dozens of decisive calls are made before and after a home is listed online. You must nail the asking price, presentation, photography, viewings and negotiations.

Exceptional agents like Home Finders do all this and a whole lot more.

2. Agents are redundant. Properties sell themselves these days.

You can sell a property, or you can sell it for top price. Which one would you prefer? An exceptional agent gets you the best price.

3. The highest valuation is the best.

Don’t be swayed by over-valuations. An honest agent will give you comparable evidence and a realistic, achievable value.

4. All agents are Flash Harrys & Harriets.

Not all estate agents wear pointy shoes, flashy suits and only care about their commission. Exceptional agents take pride in their performance, not just their appearance.
