Questions to ask your estate agent
When you are contemplating selling your house or flat through an estate agent, there are several questions that you should ask them before deciding to sell this way.
Top questions, and our answers, about selling to an estate agent
Selling your home is a major decision, and that’s why you should review these three questions and answers before making a choice on whether to sell through an estate agent:
✅ Are estate agents expensive compared to other ways of selling my home?
If financial concerns are your main reason for selling your property, you need to remember that estate agents will charge fees for helping sell your home. Auctioneers will also impose fees for taking the lead on selling. In contrast, a quick property buying company should never charge you any fees, letting you keep all the profit from a sale.
✅ How long will it take to sell my home if an estate agent handles it?
Unfortunately there is no deadline for when your home will sell if you decide to work with an estate agent. Some properties might sell within days of being on the market, but many can be on sale for weeks and months, and in certain cases go unsold for a year or more. If you want to sell in a hurry you might need to consider other options.
✅ Are there any other ways to sell my home other than with an estate agent?
Yes. There are two leading options, the first being to sell to a quick property buying company such as LDN Properties that will give you a no-fee cash payment for your home at a competitive rate and on an accelerated schedule. Or you could sell at auction, which gives you a set date for the sale happening but the auctioneer will charge you fees for the sale.
