So you are ready to sell your house? Who do you turn to?
TRADITIONAL HIGH STREET ESTATE AGENT
The popular choice for many. With the belief that the have a bank of eager and excited buyers on their books, many people will think that the 1-2% fee will bring a fully serviced sale within weeks. The reality is somewhat different in the majority of cases.
Let me explain: A high street agent has huge overheads and for them it is super important to get as many listings as they can. The more listings, the more visitors. HOWEVER, lets say that agent has 100 listings and their listing agent is listing a further 5 properties per week. They have 2 negotiators in the office, 1 branch manager, I lister, 1 lettings agent and a mortgage consultant. The negotiators are there to sell your house. How many houses do you think they can conduct quality viewings on per day? The answer is less than you think. They probably do 3-4 viewings per day, 5 days per week. That is 20 viewings maximum on a stock of 100+ houses.
The main complaint about estate agents: They do not spend the time clients want and they often are too busy to do viewings, leaving it all to the owner of the property.
Fees: High street estate agents will charge around 1-2% No sale no fee for an exclusive contract. On top of the fee they will try and upsell you for a “premium marketing pack” This includes professional photos, floorplan, featured listing, maybe a brochure of some sort. The price for this is on average £290. You then have the option for extra advertising – Facebook campaigns, print advertising (although many will include your property on a rota basis in any print advertising if they are running it)
Cost to sell a £300,000 property – on average £5400 (inc Vat) plus £350 on extras.
