The Differences That Come with Using a Solicitor Estate Agent
16 March 2022
Have you ever wondered what the difference is with using a solicitor estate agent, or what the term really means? Derek Brien, head of Estate Agency at VMH Solicitors explains all about why buying and selling is easier when your conveyancing services are combines, using a solicitor estate agent.
So, let’s say you’ve seen a property you like and want to pursue it, or maybe you’ve decided you want to sell up first (and know exactly how much you have to spend on a new place) What’s next?
Here’s why using a solicitor estate agent is the smartest choice.
A solicitor estate agent can provide expert advice on both sale and purchase. They’re not just concerned with one aspect of what is essentially a three-part exercise – the estate agency element of the sale, the sale conveyancing and the purchase conveyancing.
Having one firm look after you for all three aspects generally makes the process slicker, and any bumps which might arise can be dealt with swiftly and efficiently.
If your solicitor is overlooking both ends of the transaction, why choose to add an extra link in the chain to slow the process down, by using a third-party agent?
Many solicitor estate agents have highly-experienced estate agency departments in-house, and this will always be the case. They have their finger on the pulse and are fully conversant with up-to-the-minute market trends, meaning they are best placed to offer you invaluable advice when offering for a property, to ensure that you get what you want without paying over the odds.
Along with this, solicitor estate agents use their expertise to expose your property to the wildest possible audience, both locally and nationally, generate a high level of interest and then negotiate hard to ensure that you’re able to maximise the best possible price for your current property. They can also advise on the most favourable times of the year for buying and selling, although it’s fair to say a good buyers’ market and a good sellers’ market rarely exist at the same time!
