All you need to know about estate agency fees
Estate agency fees are unavoidable when you sell your house or flat through an estate agent and cover the costs of arranging the listing and holding viewings for your home.
Three top questions about estate agency fees
Many highly satisfied homeowners have avoided fees by selling to us. These are three of the top questions we get when they call us to sell, as well as our answers:
✅ Why do estate agents charge fees for selling houses and flats?
It’s because they do a large amount of work on behalf of homeowners for helping to find and secure buyers for their properties. Some of the many tasks that they take care of include writing and marketing the initial listing for your home, finding prospective buyers for the property, and taking them on viewings so that they can see the house in person.
✅ Are there any options for avoiding fees when I sell my home?
Yes. If you sell to a quick property buying company such as LDN Properties then you will never have to pay any fees, because none of the reputable fast buyers ever charge sellers any fees. If the company is a member of The Property Ombudsman, which sets rules and standards for the industry, then you can typically trust them with buying your home.
✅ Is it possible to negotiate with estate agents to lower their fees?
Yes. Most estate agents will give you an initial statement of the fees that they plan to charge you for selling your home, but they are usually open to some negotiation. Ask your estate agent for an upfront list of the charges they expect you to pay, and then have a conversation with them about whether they are willing to lower those fees.
