Estate agents’ fees are always a hot topic! And it is true they can vary wildly.
In many parts of Stockport, fees can vary from 0.5% to 1.75% and there is considerable variation right across the country in every town or city. There are also online or low-cost agents offering headline-grabbing fees. Ignore their slick marketing and this misconception that they don’t charge fees! They are not a charity! They just start with a low base fee and add-on for this, that and the other! Thankfully despite some impressive growth figures, the online/hybrid agents still only represent a very low share of the market. [···]
