Estate Agency has changed

Sellers and Landlords are reported to be unhappy with the service they receive for the fee they pay and want things to change (average fee £5,140 plus VAT). Here are some recent articles highlighting some of the problems encountered. We believe that there are some great people in the industry and we hope to be able to set our people apart from those who drag down the good work of the majority.

Virtually all buyers search for property online (Rightmove, Zoopla, etc.) - they do not go into Estate Agents offices or engage with them until they find something to view (95% start searching online, www.rightmove.co.uk).

Estate Agents are doing less and charging more ( Estate Agents Fees exposed).

So what do traditional estate agents do for their fee?

  • Attend your home, provide an estimate of value, measure up and take photographs
  • Put the property on to the online property websites
  • Arrange a viewing and put forward an offer when contacted by telephone
  • Attend the property for viewings
  • A little bit of post sale support
