However, the most successful sales tend to be those where the seller and agent work hand in hand during the marketing process.  Here are some pointers:


  • Be open with your agent about any problems with the property. Even if these cannot be solved, awareness of an issue could save a sale
  • Ensure your agent is properly informed about which fixtures and fittings will be staying/going. (NB watch the terminology here: “staying with you” or “staying with the house”?)
  • Tell your agent if you have any direct buyer enquiries – it can avoid confusion over commission.
  • Ideally your agent should accompany all viewings, but if you show the buyers round yourself, immediately let your agent know how the viewing went, so he/she can follow-up appropriately.
  • Keep the house and garden clean and tidy at all times – you never know when you might get a short-notice viewing, or interested parties peering over the fence.
  • Aim to be as flexible as possible over viewing times and completion dates.
  • Agree to listen constructively to your agent’s feedback and recommendations.
