If you are looking at selling your home, it is crucial that you find the best estate agent in Manchester and here we explain more.

Essentially, if you're looking for a friendly team with years of expertise, then Bergins should be your first port of call. However, you should also:

• Do your estate agent research

Before visiting any local estate agent, you should find out which agents are selling properties in your area and the type of homes they are selling.

• Draw up a shortlist

After some rudimentary research, you should draw up a shortlist of potential estate agents before you go and speak with them.

• Valuations

Along with seeking valuations from estate agents in Manchester, you should also question them on how they will market your home so they can get the best possible price for it. Also, do not simply sign up with the firm offering the highest price because while this is flattering, it's unlikely they will attract buyers if your home is overpriced.

Property for sale in Northenden

For example, if you have a property for sale in Northenden, then you should focus on local estate agents who will have a list of potential buyers already compiled and will be able to market your property effectively.

This may also be the time to decide whether you want a soul or multiple agent agreements, which means hiring more than one firm. It is advisable when carrying out research that you are confident in the estate agency you decide to sell your property with.

This process should also see you asking family and friends if they will recommend a Manchester estate agent to help you sell your home. You should also ask what the agency’s track record is for achieving the asking price and how many homes they are selling in your area.

It's also worth asking if they work at weekends and what their viewing policies are since you will need a staff member to accompany potential buyers.

Selling a home using property auctions in Manchester

There's also the potential route of selling a home using property auctions in Manchester and there are some pros and cons for this, including:

• Manchester property auctions are a quick way to sell a home

• However, it's unlikely that you will achieve a realistic selling price

• Potential buyers will need to visit the property so you will need time set aside for this

• Whoever buys property at auction has to meet the auctioneer's deadline to stump up the money and if they don't, then you'll have to begin the process again.

If you would like a free, no-obligation valuation of your home and use a firm that many previous clients will consider to be the best estate agent in Manchester, then you need to speak with the Bergins team today.

Dear Tony and Mike I just had to write to say thank you once again for everything you have done for us. The thought of having to sell my late fathers house was filling me with absolute dread, having never bought or sold a property before I didn't know where to start. From the moment I met you though I felt completely at ease, you took all the stress and worry away and within 24 hours the house had been sold and you had arranged a lovely solicitor to take care of the legal side. I'm still amazed at how smoothly everything was, especially as I have 3 siblings who were also involved in the process. I keep seeing houses that have been on the market for a while and I want to knock and say, "get in touch with Tony and Mike at Bergins, they'll soon have your house sold". Thank you again guys for everything, you run a top class business
