I’ve never tried these fixed fee agencies that keep springing up, I tend just to stick with traditional agents.
I very seldom haggle with Estate Agents over fees as I don’t want them to have an incentive to sell somebody else’s property first.
I always take a drive around the area and notice which agent has the most “Sold” boards up. They are the ones I talk to and usually do business with.
Have you ever had any experience of dealing with fixed fee or online estate agents or do you use traditional estate agents too. I’d be very interested to hear about your own experiences and also your readers’, especially if you ever tried these fixed fee or online estate agents.
If you or your readers have any other tips or experience to share I’d be most grateful.
By the way, I thought you recent article “Property Refurbishment – A Guide for Newbies” was an excellent overview. I’ve done several buy/refub/sell deals myself and you’ve certainly covered most of the basic stuff. Interesting readers replies too. I like to see more articles about the tax implications of investment vs trading.
All the best
