Why Mustard? How to choose an estate agent to sell your home
When it comes to choosing an agent to sell your home it’s vital to choose an estate agent you’re happy to work with. Your home is your most valuable asset and if you want to cash in on the mini-boom for property in the Milton Keynes and Towcester area, choosing the right estate agent is crucial.
So how can you make sure that your property achieves the fastest sale at the highest possible price? Read our top tips to find out how to choose an estate agent in Milton Keynes and Towcester.
1. We are a traditional estate agent… but better.
Online estate agents claim to be great value, but once they’ve taken their fee and listed you on Rightmove, many do little to advance your sale. Mustard also gets your home seen by everyone on our large database of potential buyers who are actively looking for a home in the area just like yours. Dipping in to this pool of active buyers generates more viewings than simply listing on an online portal (we do that too), leading to more offers and ultimately the best sale price. Our strategy works. In 2020, we achieved 99% of the asking price on Mustard property sales.
2. Local knowledge
Property experts all agree that using a local agent is key. They also agree that traditional agents are better than online estate agents, who are often not local. Mustard agents live in and around Towcester and Milton Keynes and know the area like the back of their hand. They can advise potential buyers on what the areas have to offer, including schools, transport links and community events and amenities.
3. No hidden charges
Online estate agents often charge extra for things like the Energy Performance Certificates (a legal requirement before selling a home) and professional photos. There are no hidden fees with us and we include free professional photographs, EPC, a floorplan and brochure plus a listing on mustardhomes.co.uk, Rightmove and OntheMarket.
