HOW TO SELL A PROPERTY IN AND AROUND DUNDEE
Dundee, The City of Discovery, is a city on the up. There is currently no shortage of people looking to buy a property. In fact, there is significantly more demand for new properties than there are properties for sale. As a result, well presented houses entrusted to an Estate Agent with experience of the local market and a pro-active approach to selling are very likely to attract interest from potential buyers.
Selecting an Estate Agent
Nowadays, you have the choice between an online estate agent or a more personal service from agents with a physical presence in the area. As the vast majority of buyers are local people looking to move, we believe in the benefits of dealing with a local estate agent with in-depth knowledge of the market and a physical presence in the city. The advice of a competent Estate Agent will help you optimise the return on your sale by helping you “home-in” on the most interesting features of your home.
The Power of Tayside Solicitors Property Centre
In addition to advertising properties on our own website and on social channels, the Chamber Practice features most of its properties on TSPC, simply because of the excellent results the latter delivers. The TSPC has a strong presence in Dundee City and all DD postcode areas. After many years in operation, it remains the dominant showcase for residential properties in the region. We remain flexible, however, and recognise that clients may wish to select other online services. Our Estate Agent will give you the pros and cons for both approaches and facilitate your preferred option.
Estate Agency with no upfront fee
The three main costs most frequently associated with Estate Agency are a Home Report, any third-party advertising costs (e.g. TSPC fee) and the marketing fee which includes any pre-sale valuation, visits to take photographs and shoot a video of your home, estate agency signs installation and removal, production of schedules, social media and website advertising. The marketing fee also includes the handling of all enquiries, arranging viewings, obtaining feedback from viewers, negotiating Offers and generally guiding clients until such time as they receive an Offer they are happy to accept.
Some Estate Agents, including the Chamber Practice, charge NO ESTATE AGENCY FEES upfront for selling a property in DD postcodes. This means that you don’t have to pay for a Home Report or third-party advertising fee in advance of selling your property. This can be a real benefit if your disposable income may come under pressure from early fees. See here for terms and conditions.
Estate Agency and Conveyancing – A One-Stop Shop
Finally, don’t forget that local Scottish solicitors like the Chamber Practice can also manage the legal transfer of your property to the buyer, also known as conveyancing. Being able to deal with a conveyancer who is also responsible for the marketing of your property provides a benefit in that you only have to deal with one company. In addition, your solicitor already has a knowledge of your home and circumstances. We are also bound by stringent Law Society of Scotland regulations and a code of conduct which should give clients added confidence in the quality of our services.
