Fees differ with various estate agencies. Therefore, bargaining with them may help. A 1% commission is ideal. Try to limit the time to no more than 6 weeks. This way sufficient time is available to sell the house. If that is not enough you can shift to another agent. Going “multi-agent” is not advisable as the fees will increase to about 3%+. You should never tell an estate agent what other agencies have valued your home to be. They may try to manipulate the offers. Make proper enquiries from various estate agencies; speak to the right people in charge. Enquire about their charges. Bargaining always helps as the fees are negotiable.
Selling your home privately can save you a lot of money. However this requires a lot of time and effort but is a huge money saving tip.
