Choosing the right Leeds estate agent for you

When the time comes to sell your home, how do you choose which estate agent to appoint? A popular city like Leeds, has so many options to choose from. Here we share the top things to look for in an estate agent.

Local experts

As a buyer, it is always better to feel like your Estate Agent is ‘in the know’. Make sure your chosen estate agents are Leeds experts, and can help you choose the best local area to suit your needs whether it be schools, transport links, price range or amenities.

Staff

Choose an agent that is owned and run by property professionals who are interested in your sale and needs, rather than by people who are just running a business. We are Leeds locals who are passionate about the area and our close knit team are like a family. We love communicating with our clients and ensure to keep you up to date through the process, and are always at the end of the phone if you have a question.

Valuation

It is well-known that some agents deliberately over-value in order to impress, so don’t fall into the trap of simply choosing the agent with the highest valuation as the property may take much longer than you had hoped before selling for the true value. We give honest and reliable valuations to make sure your property sells quickly and efficiently. 

Lettings

When you are choosing a Leeds Estate agent, it’s always advisable to choose one who also does lettings. Letting agents have long term, repeated relationships with investors who are permanently on their books and may be a potential buyer for your property, also showing that they must be reliable and good at what they do. It also means that should you decide to rent your property out instead of selling it, the same agent can handle both.

Ultimately, you are best served by choosing a locally based estate agent who holds values similar to your own and take pride in making sure your selling or buying process runs smoothly.
