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!

If you would like to know more about the difference that andrew scott robertson could make to the sale of your property, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
