What to look for when choosing an Estate Agent?

With so many choices out there for sellers to choose from, it can become rather overwhelming when it comes to choosing your estate agent. This article will help make that decision process easier. 

1. Professionalism

An estate agent is a property professional and so when you look at appointing one this is the first thing you should look for in an estate agent. An agent who is on time, dressed appropriately and comes prepared with all the documents is one that is likely to look after you during the selling process.  
A professional evaluation leads to a quicker and easier sales process. 
3. Mandate Presentation

A mandate presentation should take you through the entire listing process. It will explain what you can expect from the moment you list up to and including when you get that first offer. Your agent should pride themselves on their mandate presentation process and you should feel comfortable when signing a mandate that everything was thoroughly explained to you.  
The more exposure your property is getting the faster it will sell! 
5. Integrity

Probably our main thing to look for is the integrity of the brand and the property professional you are going to employ to sell your house. A simple google search will tell you alot about the estate agent and the agency you are working with. They should be registered with the Estate Agency Affiars Board and hold a valid Fidelity Fund Certificate.  
An estate agent that does not present themselves professionally is unlikely to present your house professionally. 
2. Conducts an Evaluation

A property professional will always conduct an evaluation that shows clients what the current market related value is for their property. This evaluation will also show you what other properties similar to your's sold for and what you can expect to fetch for your property, which will lead to a smoother sales process 
Mandate presentations should take you through the entire process. 
4. Where do they list?

Property Professionals should be leveraging the power of all the portals when listing your portals there are currently over 25 portals to list your property. This will ensure that your property is showcased to all prospective buyers in the market and ensure you get the best buyer in the shortest possible time.  
Ensure they are registered with the Estate Agency Affairs Board and hold a valid Fidelity Fund Certificate.
