Buying and selling property in Mitchells Plain is a lot simpler than it used to be. Most of the groundwork can be done online, so there’s no need to waste time and petrol visiting estate agencies that aren’t appealing to you.
When it comes to buying a new home, or selling your home, it’s best to find an estate agent that is local to where the property is located. Local estate agents, like those at http://www.realnet.co.za/property/for-sale/western-cape/mitchells%20plain/-1 will be familiar with the area and the areas surrounding the property, so they’ll be knowledgeable in terms of important information regarding the property for sale. They’ll be able to tell you if the neighbourhood is safe, how close you are to schools, shopping malls, parks and other amenities. More importantly, they’ll be realistic when it comes to the price of the property.
To search for a local estate agency in Mitchells Plain, go online and perform a search by typing “estate agents in Mitchells Plain” in the search bar. This should bring up most of the estate agencies in Mitchells Plain.
If you wish to buy a Mitchells Plain property, view the property listings on each of the property websites that come up and if you see any houses that you’re interested in, contact the agency to set up an appointment to view.
If you’re selling your home, go into each estate agency website listing to familiarize yourself with the way they advertise the houses for sale. Are the photos of the advertised houses flattering? Do they give good descriptions of the houses they’re selling? Do they have reviews from clients that they’ve assisted? What do these clients say about the services they’ve received? Which estate agent’s name comes up most when it comes to happy clients? This is also a good time to have a look at the selling prices of houses similar to yours, that are located in the same area, so that you’ll know what a reasonable price will be for your home.
Once you have viewed this information, you should be able to have a few agents from various estate agencies picked out. Use this list to set up meetings with the estate agents. Ask the agents meet with you at your house. That way they can let you know how much your home is worth at the meeting.
From this point, you’ll have two options. Either you can choose to sell your home on a sole mandate, meaning you’ll need to choose one agent to sell your home for you, or you can choose to sell your home on an open mandate, meaning you can pick a few of your favourite estate agents to sell your home for you.
