How to choose the best estate agent?

How do I choose the best estate agent? I am looking for a quick-ish sale (no chain) for the best price (realistic). Apparently the market here is very buoyant but prices are slowing down - I've had 3 local agents out this week and not sure how to choose and how to find out which has the best success rate.....

  • You can ask each estate agent to provide you with examples of properties they have sold in the local area. You can check what they tell you by looking at sold prices on Zoopla. If you're looking for a quickish sale you could also consider selling at auction, it doesn't cost as much as most people think.

  • Hello - always be wary of the difference between asking and actual sold prices but, as mentioned, you can track these figures using the "House prices & values" tool on Zoopla. You can also use your research here to ascertain what the realistic value of your property is (remembering to bear in mind the various charactreristics such as a larger garden etc.)
