What's the difference in using a solicitor estate agent?
11 January 2022
Have you ever wondered what the difference is with using a solicitor estate agent, or what this term means? Head of Estate Agency at VMH Solicitors, Derek Brien, is here to explain how buying and selling is made easier when your conveyancing services are combined, using a solicitor estate agent.
So, let’s say, you’re keen on pursuing, or perhaps you’ve decided to sell first (knowing exactly how much you have to spend on a new home). What do you do next?
Here, we explain why using a solicitor estate agent is the smartest choice.
Your solicitor estate agent can give you expert advice on both sale and purchase. We aren’t 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.
If you have a single firm looking after you for all three of those component parts, then it is generally a slicker process, and any issues which may arise, can be dealt with swiftly.
If your solicitor is keeping an eye on both ends of the transaction, why would you want to add an extra link in the chain to slow the process down? This is what could happen when you use a third-party estate agent.
Most solicitor estate agents have highly-experienced estate agency departments in-house, and this has been the case for many years. Being fully conversant with up-to-the-minute market trends and having our finger on the pulse means that we are best equipped to offer you invaluable advice when offering for a property, to ensure you get what you’re looking for, without paying over the odds.
Along with this, we use our expertise to expose your property to the widest possible audience, both nationally and locally, 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. We can also advise on the most favourable times of the year to buy and sell.
