How to choose the right Estate & Letting Agent & marketing price for your Stevenage home...

Invite three valuers. This will enable you to see different styles of agency approach, you have the modern and bespoke service I offer, traditional high street estate agents and online models - Write down questions about what is important to you, one we believe you should ask is, how much will the valuer you meet on the day handle the whole process?

Ask personal questions. How long have they been in the industry? Do they live locally?

What's their marketing plan. Do they host a block viewings day? Market with a presenter led property tour? Use social media campaigns?

The price is imperative. You only get one chance of making a first impression. Make sure the Estate Agent provides comparisons and evidence of properties in which have sold/exchanged, not just properties they've had on the market. Check on the portals yourself as for what prices are out there, this will give you a better understanding on whether the valuer is overpromising.

Visit their websites. Are they passionate about their details, or do they just take quick photos, shove it online and hope for the best.

Fees are important of course. But what you also want to ask is how long is their sole agency agreement? If they're confident they can sell/let your home they shouldn't need three-six months to do so.
