How to Find the Best Estate Agent in West Molesey

small business in West Molesey

Why a good Estate Agent Matters

The housing market has fluctuated since interest rates rose in 2022. House prices have held steady or even risen but demand has fallen especially for buyers with mortgages. Finding the best local estate agent will help secure the best possible price for a seller in the current market conditions. This means providing realistic advice on pricing.

Like any service provider, estate agents' fees will vary depending on the service provided. Some estate agents for instance specialise in more expensive homes, while others are online estate agents focused on a low fixed fee price. Like any business, estate agents have overheads and their ability to market your home will depend on the budget you can afford. The best estate agents in West Molesey will understand your needs and circumstances, such as upsizing, downsizing, renting etc.

Do your research

A search online will list all the local agents, but reviews and forums are very useful, as are community Facebook groups such as the East and West Molesey Group.

Local recommendations are always good, ask friends and family or people who live in the area. A good estate agent in West Molesey will usually be well known in the local community.

Choosing your local Estate Agent

You will need to get a number of valuations. Your research will have narrowed down the agents and ultimately you will need to choose the agent who you feel most comfortable with and can trust.

You will want to have a set of questions to ask each estate agent to ensure they understand your individual requirements. You might even want to ask for references.

The fee structure should be clear. Is it a fixed fee or commission based. Additional services including the types of marketing may be additional.

You need to ensure that during the selling process the estate agents maintain clear communications and keep you informed about the progress of your property sale. If your buyer is a cash buyer or needs a mortgage will impact the sales process. You may also want to consider a lower cash offer to avoid uncertainty that a chain can sometimes create.

Ultimately, at the end of the day, you need to do your research and trust your instincts.
