This is the fee which an estate agent charges for arranging the sale. Many estate agents advertise that they will cut their fees, but this must also mean some equivalent cut in the work they undertake – one cannot offer a fully comprehensive estate agency service, efficiently, on the cheap. The cut is not only in the commission it has to be in some aspect of the service too.
And bear in mind that reduction might be reflected in the final price you achieve, or you may find that when troubles build up the agent doesn’t want to know, he hasn’t the time or experienced staff to handle the sales progress work. Obtaining an offer is often the easy bit!
We believe our commission rates
are realistic and fair. You will be given full information up front so that you
know what you will have to pay and what we have to do to earn our fees. We will
also agree any advertising or other charges that may arise. The only extra will
be the VAT on the final bill.
