Estate Agent

estate agentAn estate agent also known as a real estate sales agent, will be able to give you an expert view on how much your house is worth, setting it at the right price to the current market. A key part of an estate agent’s job is to manage negotiations and act as a go-between for any potential buyers/renters and the owner of a property. If you are thinking about buying or making an offer on a property, you can ask the estate agent for more information about the position of the owners to gauge the urgency of the sale. Under the property Ombudsman Code of Practice, estate agents must take reasonable steps to find out about the buyer's source and availability of funds for buying the property and pass this information to the seller to start the exchange process.
