An incredible 95% of people are wasting thousands of pounds when they sell their house. This is everything you need to know to dodge those fees yourself.
Using a traditional estate agent means throwing away enough money to pay for a new kitchen or bathroom. Or a fantastic holiday. Really fantastic. And you’re doing it for no reason at all.
That’s because estate agents charge sellers a fee as a percentage of the value they sell the home for. Which means, rather than paying according to what a set of services cost, you’re paying based on how high house prices have risen.
Considering the average house price in the UK is £204,674, that would mean handing the sharp-suited estate agent in charge up to £5,116.85 in commission. Or, roughly, £4,621.84 more than you need to.
Why? Because you can now pay someone to just do the job, rather than reward them for rising UK house prices.
