Selling a house is a specialist skill and with property and land prices throughout the UK notorious for their fluctuations, valuating a property to its real worth takes an expert eye and local knowledge.
A typical estate agent's fee for lettings will be between 6-10% and agents will charge between 1-3% of the sale price for property sales. The services offered by an estate agent who handles lettings varies greatly, as do their fees, and they largely depend on whether the property is managed by the agent or if they simply arrange new tenants.
Finding a reliable estate agent can be a difficult process and the simplest way to ensure you will benefit from the services of a good estate agent is to use a company that is well established in the property sector. Agents should be helpful, personable and able to handle multiple tasks from organising legal documents to keeping their clientele up to date with any significant developments with their property sale/rental. Speak to family and friends about previously used estate agents and find out more about local agencies by searching our site for further details.
A good agent will work alongside you and understand your requirements as well as being able to assist you from the start of the sale through to the legal paperwork up until the point of legal exchange. There is no legal stipulation for an estate agent to be part of a property organisation but membership acts as a positive indication that the agent is honest and reliable.
