How to find the best Glasgow Estate Agents for you
When selecting a Glasgow Estate Agent, the amount of choice can seem daunting. We have compiled a handy list of things to ask potential agents to make sure you are getting the most value from your agent of choice.
1) What is the Estate agent’s background?
It is worth probing anyone you are intending to work with to find out what their background is and how long they have been operating for. Yates Hellier was established in 2013 and is owned and managed by surveyors Jack Hellier and Ross Yates. Our Sales department offers our clients great value due to the technical knowledge and experience of our team.
2. Is the Estate agent advertising on all the main platforms
We advertise our properties on all of the main property portals including Rightmove, Zoopla and S1 Homes. Traditional methods such as boards and print are still extremely important and actively utilised.
3. Does the Estate agent utilise video to promote your property?
At Yates Hellier, we promote all of our properties through HD Walk Through videos sponsored across social media platforms. This draws the maximum amount of targeted applicants to book viewings and ultimately apply for our properties. We have done this from the start, well before the pandemic made it a necessity.
4. Who is actually selling your property?
Following the valuation appointment, it is likely that someone else will actually be selling your property. Do you know who this is? The person selling your property and speaking with buyers should know your property inside out.
Should you instruct Yates Hellier to sell your property, our Sales Negotiator will visit your property in person before putting it live. This step is extremely important, as it will help them to answer any specific questions buyers will have. We pride ourselves on being one of the best Glasgow Estate Agents due to this extra step.
5. Can you trust the Estate Agency?
Chances are you are going to be working with an Estate Agent for a few weeks. It makes sense to spend an hour of your time checking any previous reviews, looking at the properties they are marketing and carrying out some mystery shopper exercises to get a feel for the agency you are thinking of working with. Our clients rate us as one of the best Glasgow Estate Agents:
6. What properties have they sold in the vicinity of your own?
It is always beneficial to employ an agent who knows their patch and has a strong foothold in the area. They should know the correct market value of your property and will have access to more qualified and active buyers.
Yates Hellier’s core operating areas are Glasgow’s West End and City Centre districts. If your property is located in the West End of Glasgow, it makes sense to use one of the best Glasgow Estate Agents locally.
If your property hasn’t sold, and you think your current agent could be doing more for you, switching your Estate Agent is a simple process. Generally, all that is required of you is to notify them of your intention to switch and Yates Hellier will take care of the rest.
