Choosing an Estate Agent

Choosing an estate agent to sell your property for the best price and in a reasonable time frame can be a complex task. Some agents will give you an impressively high property valuation or offer you low fees. However, this can be a red flag. 
A recent Which magazine study showed that while two-thirds of Vendors were happy with their estate agent one third were left unsatisfied. This of course begs the question, how can you tell which estate agent to instruct?
Judging an agent by their recent performance will give prospective vendors a clear picture of how agents in their area stack up against each other.
 In a recent ranking of Earlsfield and SW18 Estate Agents by Getagent, Maalems came out on top in two key areas that are paramount to successfully selling your property.
  • Correctly Valuing your property. 
  • Time on the market   
Correctly valuing a property is key to getting a property sold. When agents overvalue property simply to win an instruction it puts unrealistic expectations in the vendor's minds, wastes the vendor's time and results in the property sitting on the market unsold only to be reduced later.  The additional time that the property is left on the market coupled with subsequent reductions, more often than not means the price eventually achieved will be less than what would have been achieved if the correct asking price had been asked at the outset.
With a record of achieving 98.6% of the asking price, Maalems outperforms every other estate agent in the SW18 and Earlsfield area.  And on average gets the property sold a whopping 3 weeks faster than any other Estate agent in SW18
