What do I get for my money from an estate agent?
A good estate agent will be able to bring their local knowledge into your transaction and reduce the amount of stress you might experience as part of the whole moving experience.
Although it might seem that agents do very little for their clients, they will help you set the sale price for your home by using their knowledge of similar properties, a large part will involve marketing your home by expressing it in its best light online and through fliers, phone calls and emails, etc., they will conduct viewings with ay interested potential buyers, manage the negotiations on the offers as they come in and, by law, they will also have to take all necessary steps to ensure the buyer is serious about entering into the contract to purchase the property when an offer is made.
However good you believe your chosen estate agent to be, you should take time to read through the terms and conditions thoroughly to understand what you’re paying them and what you’re going to get for your money.
Are the doctors/dentists/schools oversubscribed in the area I want to move to?
Although your conveyancing solicitor may have some personal knowledge of these critical factors, they are not part of the conveyancing process, so will not form part of the contract.
If aspects such as how likely you’ll get into a surgery or school are important to you, it is worth factoring this in at an early stage when you are researching the areas into which you want to move. You can also glean some facts from the estate agent representing properties where you want to move, too. You might also like to contact the surgeries or schools for further information.
