  • Keep up to date with trends in the relevant property market

What Are The Advantages Of Using An Estate Agent? 

One of the main advantages of using an estate agent is that they are able to help you set the value of your home. Putting your home on the market at the right price is imperative as it could make the difference between selling your home within a couple of days or the property sitting on the market for months to come. When people sell their homes privately it can be hard to say what the suitable price may be, however, an estate agent will have a world of expert knowledge and information to make sure your home is on the market for the correct price. 

Castles Estate Agents have some examples of how their services have helped homeowners sell their properties quickly and efficiently; 

24 Hawkins Street 



This home is located in Swindon, Wiltshire. The guide price for this home was placed at £125,000. The home has two bedrooms and was in need of a complete refurbishment which meant the property had a lot of potential. The property had an open house on a Friday and was sold by the Monday in excess of the guide price. The home received 15 viewings and also had 5 people bidding for it.



This home is located in Cricklade on the outskirts of Swindon and was priced at £295,000. 

The home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and was advertised as a perfect first-time purchase or family home. The garden is low maintenance, includes a single garage and driveway parking for two cars. The home was valued on Friday, instructed on Saturday and then was sold (STC) for the full asking price on Sunday. 


Portmore Close


This home is located in Swindon, Wiltshire and was put on the market for £212,000. The stunning property included two bedrooms, a garage and driveway situated in a cul de sac in a popular area. The home was sold (STC) for the full asking price to the second viewer who viewed the property within 36 hours of it being put onto the market. The property was subsequently down valued to £200,000 by the surveyor but Castles managed to not only keep the sale together but more importantly managed to retain the price of £212,000 for the vendor. 

Other Advantages Include

Estate agents are experts in their industry and fully understand how to solve problems if need be. They will also be able to give you the most accurate marketing price which will allow you to sell your home a lot quicker. As well as this, they will also know where who the best potential buyers will be and how to target them directly.Estate agents also understand that selling your home can be an emotional experience which is why they can help take this emotional side of selling your home away, which will be a lot different if you sold your home privately. 


As estate agents have a lot of experience in the field they will also have a lot of knowledge on the local area. This means they will know local home prices and even little things like schools in the area, job opportunities and more. They also organise and conduct the viewings and help with their negotiating skills.
