Sell my home blog: Getting the estate agents round
This is a legacy post from the findaproperty.com blog which is now maintained as an archive within the Zoopla blog. Links have been preserved.
The day has finally arrived, I have three estate agents booked in to come this week. After what seems like a decade of cleaning, we are finally there. I feel that the meet the agent part will be a little bit like blind date as I will be speaking to them quite a bit over the next few months:
Estate Agent number 1: Local firm with four offices. They are very enthusiastic and I have high hopes that they will be swayed to lower the commission rate to sell my home with homemade cake and Earl Grey.
Estate Agent number 2: A national firm that recently flyered the flat and said that they had 19 people are willing to buy the property. They are also sending the sales director so I feel very important. I had a good chat with them about when the property should be marketed and they seemed interested to get moving as soon as possible.
Estate Agent number 3: A small local firm that has 2 offices. I wanted to try and use a more local agent but they didn’t sound very interested which is a shame. Maybe it is the thought of all that extra work just before Christmas, I hope that in the flesh their approach is better.
Fingers crossed that everything goes well. This is a huge step in the right direction and I feel that we are finally progressing. I am now off to the shops to buy half cooked breads so that I can stick them in the oven and make the flat smell delicious.
