When you decide to move home, one of the very first important decisions you will have to make is which estate agent you should use to market and sell your property. Choosing the right one could make the difference between your property being sold quickly or left languishing without very many viewings from prospective buyers. It could also affect the likely price you will be able to sell for, so it is worth taking the time right at the beginning of your move to choose the right agent.
