Agents Fees – What Are You Paying For ?

Posted by

By Stephen N.D. Parsons MNAEA
Director of Residential

When negotiating fees to sell your property, it is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that all agents do the same thing and therefore must all be the same, or be worth the same fee.

Finding the right buyer at the best possible price, is indeed a skill and requires determination and the ability to negotiate in a way that sees your client’s interests exceeded, whilst keeping the buyer encouraged that they are buying a property on fair terms, but the sale process does not end there!

The process of delivering a sale from the day it is agreed to the day that contracts exchange, is arguably as important as agreeing the sale price, though its importance is often under estimated or simply not appreciated at the outset of marketing or when agreeing terms with your estate agent.

At andrew scott robertson we have a team of highly experienced sales negotiators that understand the need to set up a sale properly, so that there is firm expectation on the buyer to perform speedily from the outset and not to renege on the originally agreed sale price.

We are delighted to have just exchanged contracts on a wonderful house in Kenilworth Avenue. Both buyer and seller are thrilled with the outcome and an expeditious exchange of contracts with the help of two excellent firms of local solicitors meant that we were able to exchange contracts in fifteen working days from when the sale was agreed!

NO SIZZLING START TO SUMMER, BUT THE PROPERTY MARKET HEATS UP NICELY

As we gently and safely ease ourselves out of the lockdown, whilst observing the Government Guidelines, a surprising number of new buyers as well as ones that were registered with our offices before we locked ourselves away, are eagerly looking to make up for lost time and secure purchases before the end of the school year and when the traditional holiday season might have started.

In the three weeks or so since we have been back trading more normally, we have seen new buyers and viewing numbers pretty much returning to pre-covid levels, with many new sales being agreed in all price ranges. The number of buyers looking for flats and apartments has certainly surprised us, but it is a very welcome and significant boost, as the activity lower down the market stimulates and fuels the middle and upper ends. That said, we have also made some significant new sales of more expensive properties during lockdown and just after it, which include a £7M sale just off Parkside, a trophy house in the Village and two sales at around the £2.5M mark have just been agreed on quick turnaround exchange targets. We were also fortunate enough to re-agree a sale that fell through during lockdown almost immediately to a new buyer who, despite the hurdles, was able to exchange contracts in only 14 working days!

With the number of sales currently progressing and much lower volumes of new properties coming to the market, stock is in short supply, so if you are considering selling, this would be a great time to market your property.  Because of the need to keep our clients, as well as our employees, safe at the forefront of our minds, we are now able to offer virtual valuations as well as physical valuations for prospective sellers.  Also as part of our service to new clients we can now offer not only professional photographs and floorplans but also virtual tours which are vital to show the property in its best light, whilst helping to reduce the number of physical viewings, keeping everyone safe and protecting our wonderful NHS and easing the strain on front line workers.  Should you be interested in booking either a virtual or physical valuation of your property then please click Here
