An interesting test is to ask the agent to show you examples of properties they have sold recently that compare with your own. This not only illustrates their effectiveness but also helps support the figure they are recommending.

It is always tempting to go for the higher price but valuing a property is not an exact science, the agents do not set the price – they interpret the market on your behalf. In these uncertain times, now more than ever it is important to get the value right.

At Michael Hardy we always have an eye on what the economy is doing both locally and nationally. A change in interest rates, up or down, can have an effect on the value of your property, as can the local employment situation. The skill is being able to anticipate which way the market is going and therefore at what level the price should be pitched.

We have experienced staff who have worked for many years in the offices in which they are based. We pride ourselves on using this experience to obtain the best price possible for your property in the time scale you require. We balance realism with attainability.

The final decision on which agent you use should be based on a balance of their professionalism and market awareness.
