It doesn’t always work out with your first choice of estate agent.
Perhaps things went well at first, but viewings are now thin on the ground. Maybe you sense your agent’s initial enthusiasm has begun to cool. Or you could be wondering if your home was overvalued at the start, particularly if you’re being pressed for a hefty price reduction now.
Being stuck on the market is no fun, and when your neighbours are selling their homes and being whisked away by removal vans, there comes a point when you start to think about a new approach.
But how can you be sure that changing estate agents will turn your fortunes around?
In this week’s blog, you’ll find everything you need to make the switch with confidence and pick the best estate agent to get your move back on track.

If you’ve decided you want to change your estate agent, here are some things to consider to help you find your ideal selling partner:
Finally, ask yourself which agent’s company you enjoyed the most. Your relationship is going to last a good few months, so whoever you choose should be someone you trust and who you’d like to speak to every week.
After you’ve settled on a new estate agent to take over the sale of your home, there are some steps to take for a seamless switch with no loose ends.
