Embarking on the exciting journey of buying or selling a property? Choosing the right estate agent is a crucial step in the process.

Local Expertise:

One of the first things to consider is the agent's local expertise. A knowledgeable estate agent with a deep understanding of the local market can provide valuable insights into property values, neighbourhood trends, and potential challenges. Look for agents who have successfully handled transactions in your specific area.

At Airsat Real Estate, we have expert knowledge of the Bristol property market. Despite offering our services to wider Bristol, our main areas of focus are Bishopston, Horfield and Filton.

 

Fees and Contracts:

Clearly understand the agent's fees and any additional costs involved. Compare the fees of different agents and ensure you are getting value for money. Additionally, carefully review the terms of the contract, including the duration and any termination clauses.

Our team are fully transparent about our fees including any additional services so no unpleasant surprises. We offer tailored packages to meet the requirements of our clients. Find out more here: https://www.airsatrealestate.co.uk/about-us

 

Reputation and Reviews:

Research the reputation of the estate agents you are considering. Online reviews, testimonials, and recommendations from friends or family can offer valuable insights into the agent's reliability and professionalism. Additionally, check if the agent is a member of professional bodies like the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) or the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

We are committed to delivering a professional service and are proud to receive such fantastic feedback, here's a recent review from one of our clients.

Marketing Strategy:

A strong marketing strategy is crucial for maximizing the exposure of your property. Inquire about the agent's marketing plan, including online and offline channels. Effective use of professional photography, virtual tours, and social media can significantly enhance the visibility of your property.

 

We take pride in the properties we market and sell for our clients and our primary focus is to achieve the highest possible price in the quickest period of time. Once instructed, one of our expert team members will draw up a floor plan and take professional photographs. This will also give your dedicated sales advisor the opportunity to inspect the accommodation so they are able to answer any questions that prospective buyers may have.

 

 

Negotiation Skills:

Negotiation is a key aspect of any property transaction. Assess the agent's negotiation skills by discussing previous sales and gauging their ability to secure favourable deals for their clients. A skilled negotiator can make a substantial difference in the final sale or purchase price.

 

We will support you every step of the way. When an offer is received, we’ll inform you straight away both verbally and in writing. Not only will we offer our professional opinion on the offer but we’ll also support you in your decision.

 

 

Communication and Accessibility:

Effective communication is vital throughout the buying or selling process. Choose an agent who is responsive, transparent, and keeps you informed at every stage. Accessibility is also crucial; an agent who is readily available and can accommodate your schedule will make the process more convenient.

 

At Airsat, we realise how important clear communication is. Throughout the process, we promise to keep you in the loop by providing regular updates.
