How to choose your estate agent in a changing property market.

Get the best team to support you!
Choosing your estate agent wisely is key. Here are some things to consider and ask your prospective agent:


Has your agent worked in a declining property market? 

There are many agents to pick from; Corporate National Agents- where the team of individuals are likely to change from year to year. Independent agents- tend to have established teams, who have worked in varying markets. 

Direct Moves Estate Agents have been established for over twenty five years with experience in all markets, and so are well equipped to deal with any climate whether it be easy or challenging! 


When marketing your home, what is your agent’s local, national and international strategy to attract the widest audience and most suitable people for your home. 


Direct Moves Estate Agents are on all the marketing platforms including Rightmove, Zoopla and On The Market. This attracts both local, national and even international enquires, which are all thoroughly vetted and attended to. Professional photos and videos with floor plans are standard, on a no sale no fee package. 


Will your sale always be handled by the most experienced agent?

Make sure you are dealing with knowledgeable experienced people who have a good track record. Will the person listing your home be there to help you along the process of selling your home? Will viewings be accompanied by an estate agent?

 At Direct Moves, the answer is YES to all your questions. 

Going Above and Beyond

Ask your agent to run you through their full marketing plan. Talk to them about what they will do to best showcase your property. For example, at Direct Moves we regularly update our clients, and give weekly marketing updates , which clients really love. Ask them how they will help ensure your move will run as smoothly as possible.
