Ask for recommendations – this may seem an obvious place to start, but ask friends, family and colleagues who have recently moved which estate agents they used and what they thought of them. Also, look in your local area at the “for sale” and “sold” signs; it’s a useful indicator of the agents that work well in your area. Also, get a feel as to how long you see signs up for and get a feel as to how well an estate agent markets what they do.
You should be able to research this without having to set foot in an estate agent’s branch. Members of these schemes will be shouting about it on their websites. If in any case, you may be a little unsure of all of this, also go on these websites and look up the estate agent in question to see if they are 100% fully accredited.
Shortlist your agents, but don’t shorten too much. Try to get at least three to come and value your property. When your property is valued it’s important not to be too impressed by the Estate Agents in Benissa that values your property the highest – this could be a ploy to win your business. Ideally, you need an agent who is going, to be honest, and fair, not one who is going to overvalue your property and then fail to get a buyer at that price.
