If you are selling your home you may need to hire an estate agent. Estate agents usually charge a percentage fee, which can be anywhere between 0.75% and 3.5% of the agreed selling price for your home depending on the type of contract you choose.
The way we sell our houses is rapidly changing and there are alternatives to using a traditional estate. There are now a growing number of companies online that can help you save thousands on estate agent fees, by either paying a flat rate fee, or by advertising and managing the sale of your house yourself.
Selling can take time so try to make your house appeal to as wider market as possible, by setting a realistic price in line with the local market. Make sure your house is presentable and has kerb appeal, and try to de-clutter and de-personalise your house so that potential buyers can see themselves living in your house.
There are a wealth of tips and trick online and programmes on TV that will give you the best advice on selling your house, and by following this advice and exposing your house to the biggest market of buyers, you should be successful in selling your house in a reasonable time.
