The True Value of an Estate Agent

The True Value of an Estate Agent

The “online agents” boast about their low rate fixed fees.

Other agents pitch their services on the lowest % possible.

Have you ever stopped to think about what service you get for that?

Low margin businesses need volume to turn a profit and in the estate agency world that means as many sales as possible, regardless of the price. If your agent advises you to accept the first offer received, the chances are they are thinking more of their own interests rather than yours. So when considering which agent to instruct, ask yourself, will that agent be acting for me or for them? The agent who charges slightly more is better incentivised to take the time to negotiate that extra £5,000/£10,000/£20,000 or whatever is appropriate out of the sale.

Now that’s when the true value of your estate agent comes to the fore.
