The Benefit of Accompanied Viewings

  27 Jan 2017

When it comes to selling a home, the viewing stage is one of the most important. This is why you should look to make the best possible impression, and for many people, this means providing an accompanied viewing. Using the services of an estate agent for a viewing brings a number of benefits, and in a competitive market place, this could be the key factor in selling a home.

Estate agents are more likely to be focused on what the buyer is looking for

The homeowner will have a number of things that they love about their home. This may be quirky moments or it could be related to the memories they have created over the years. Of course, what may be great points for the homeowner may not be of interest or benefit to the potential buyer, and focusing on these issues may cause a buyer to lose interest in the property.

An estate agent will have a more balanced opinion of the property and will provide the buyer with information that is more likely to meet their needs.

Using an estate agent provides the seller with more time

Quite often, the selling part is also buying a property, or they at least have other things to deal with. This means that this is an extremely busy time for people selling a home. Calling on support that frees time up without compromising the selling service has to be of benefit, and this is a major benefit of an accompanied viewing.

Estate agents know how to prepare the property

Even though the seller should have a clean and hospitable home, an estate agent has considerable experience in presenting properties for potential buyers and visitors. Small touches like setting the temperature, lighting rooms and ensuring the layout of a room is good doesn’t take a lot of time or effort for an experienced estate agent, but it can have a huge impact on the overall impression a potential buyer forms of the property.

Estate agents are experienced

While the seller likely knows the home and local area, which can be important, an estate agent is an experienced seller. This means that they have experience in dealing with potential buyers, in accentuating the positives, in calming fears and concerns and generally promoting the property in a positive manner. When you want to sell something, it makes sense to call on the services of a professional who has a great deal of experience in selling. If you’re looking to sell a home, an estate agent is the best person for the job.

A potential buyer is likely to be more honest with an estate agent

Even if you aren’t selling your property to one person, getting their feedback can help you sell the home later. If there are things that the potential buyer doesn’t like about the property, they may not be willing to tell the seller their true thoughts. After all, this may be construed as a criticism of a person’s personal taste or style, which a lot of people want to avoid. However, in discussing the property with an estate agent, a potential buyer is likely to be more honest, which can provide a greater level of insight into what a buyer thinks about a home. This can help the seller and estate agent to present the property in a more productive manner in the future.

  • " I've dealt with some horrible agencies whilst renting in the past but I am glad we had Jezzards as our last. Didn't know that someone so professional and understanding and true to it's word existed in the business. I locked myself out once and they were there in  20 mins to assist. Heating stopped in the night and their out of hours assistance helped sort us out. Any problems or issues, were very promptly and effectively dealt with...I didn't even have to chase them. Our exit was quick, refunds took some time due to overlooked issues, which Victoria Jezzard looked into personally, and all done in 3 days. Dorathy was our handler and she was ace!! "
