Choosing Your Estate Agent

Which Estate Agent Should I choose?

What should you look for when choosing an agent to sell your biggest asset and your most cherished possession? Below are a list of the things you should think about before appointing an agent to work with:

Exposure –

With the greatest will in the world you will struggle to sell anything if people don’t know about it. The days are long gone now where a picture in an agents window would have sold your property 5 times over, and with people not only looking to move within the area, but also relocate to this beautiful part of the world from all over the country and beyond, it is essential that your agent has as wide a reach as possible.

mb-tickDespite the ever increasing costs we have decided to commit to the best property portals, as well as a strong year round presence in the local press and life style magazines such as Devon Life.

Availability –

We all lead ever increasingly busy lives, and our time is precious, so you need to choose an agent that is available to talk or meet to suite you.

mb-tickHere at Morris and Bott we are available Monday to Friday until 7pm, and open both Saturdays and Sundays in fact we are open 363 days a year.

mb-tickAlso take our mobile numbers to contact us out of the office hours.

Support/Service –   

It’s one thing to be won over by an agent’s price and charm during a visit, but do they have a strong support network in the office.

mb-tickAt Morris and Bott we aren’t looking to have every house in the North Devon Market on our books for sale, we look to offer the best possible customer experience for both vendor and potential purchaser, and with our dedicated property sales progression and negotiators with over 15 years’ experience they will keep you informed at every step of the process with regular updates and chasing so that everything remains on track with the sale.

Local Knowledge –

An agents job is of course to ultimately sell a property for the best price in the quickest possible time, however in order to do that agents need to have an understanding of the intricacies of the local market to price the property correctly in the first place. But with North Devon being such a popular location for people from all over the country looking to invest in second homes, or to look to relocate here, it is important that your agent can also sell the immense amount of benefits to living in working in the picturesque part of the world.

mb-tickOur team not only have over 35 years of property experience in the area, but all are proud to have been born and raised in the area, and talk with great knowledge and passion about what North Devon has to offer.

On The Go –

Estate agents aren’t immune to the ever changing technological landscape, and if anything should be at the forefront. Everyone wants information at the touch or swipe of a finger, so making sure that your property is easily visible on every device is essential.

mb-tickOur website has been optimised, so whether you’re browsing on your home computer or browsing on the go on your mobile phone or tablet device you get the same great user experience.

Presentation –  

We have all heard about or seen those images that estate agents have taken that looks like they were taken while they were blind folded, blurry, wonky, unmade beds, and pictures of the estate agent in the mirror.

mb-tickWhile we don’t go as far as cleaning the house for our vendors, our fully trained team use the latest equipment to stage your property, so it looks as good as it possibly can, as you only get 1 opportunity to make a first impression, so make sure yours is as good as it can be.

Cost –    

In an ideal world we all want to pay as little as possible for everything we do and buy.
