Choosing an Estate Agent

When looking to buy, sell, rent, let or manage a property it is important to find an estate agent. It is the estate agent who is responsible for dealing with and managing the property in question. Choosing the correct estate agent that will work in your best interests is vital to the process of buying, selling, letting or managing properties and can make a difference to the prices and overall experience of dealing with the property in question. It is therefore important to ensure that the agent chosen works in your best interests and satisfies the parties involved.

Check Reviews of the Agency

It is always wise to do your research and check any online reviews on the estate agents you are considering. Furthermore, ask friends, family members and people you trust what their experience was like with the particular estate agent and consider using them if there are positive experiences all round. ‘For sale’ and ‘to let signs’ around the local area are often the initial research many carry out.

How Much Do Agents Cost?

Typically for sellers, estate agents will charge between 1% and 2.5% for a traditional sole agency agreement. The fees you will pay usually exclude VAT and if you were to pay. So for example, if your house were to be bought for £500,000, you would be paying between £5,000 and £12,500, depending on the terms and the arrangement. When deciding between different estate agents, try and get them to compete on cost – so you know you are getting and committing to the best deal possible.

Make sure you aware of what their fees truly cost – do they cover the marketing of the property you are trying to sell, let or manage? Do they include other costs like preparing the property details, such as tor sale or to let boards?

It is best to have these all included in the fees so you are not paying more than you are due, so make sure you inquire when in the process of deciding which estate agent is best for you.

Questions to ask Estate Agents

Some useful questions to ask potential estate agents include:

  • How long as the agency been established and how much personal experience does the estate agent have? What experience in the required service do they have?
  • How will the property be advertised; Will it be displayed in the shop window? In the local newspaper? On a property website such as Rightmove? Ask for examples of the advertising they have done for previous sales
  • What is their success rate to time frame ratio? This is important if you are wanting to buy or sell your property quickly, or within a set space of time
  • Who will be in charge of viewing? This applies to both viewings of your property that you are wishing to buy or let, as well as organising viewing around properties for you to potentially buy or rent.
  • Will the estate agent be present at all viewings, or is It up to you to coordinate?
