    online estate agents

    hi all

    i'd like to sell my property

    the agents charge a min of 1%

    so if it sells for £500k, that would cost be £5k

    is there a cheaper way of selling, that cuts out the agents?

    can if be done online, like most things?

    if so would be good to get some websites that do this, does anyone know any?

    Thank yuo

    This is one occasion where I think you are better off paying a real person. They are quite skilled in persuading buyers to up their offers, (by quite crafty means in some cases.)

    If they get you an extra £10k, they will have saved their fee.
    To save them chiming in, JPKeates, Theartfullodger, Boletus, Mindthegap, Macromia, Holy Cow & Ted.E.Bear think the opposite of me on almost every subject.

      Thanks for both your replies.

      It was fully managed.

      yes I do plan to speak to agent. My concern is they will try and use it as leverage to insert themselves in the sale process. Just wondered if anyone else has hit anything similar?

      Speak to your agent & ask them to put in writing what fees would be charged in the event of this happening....

      The original arrangement with the tenants, was it ia fully managed or tenant find only arrangement ? I have done this a few times on a tenant find basis and let all my AST's go periodic (so the tenants stay), i have paid zero to every agent, and they have never been knocking asking for any money.

      With regards to keep or sell. Those 4 properties are not just assets, but you need to see them as say children, which need looking after. You can't switch off because you are busy. It is 24/7 responsibility, as you are responsible for the property and the health and safety of the people living. If...

      Almost anything beats working for a living.

      Running a portfolio is just as demanding and stressful. If someone worked in an office, it is a 9 to 5 job. Their taxes are paid by their employer.


      Running a portfolio of properties, can be demanding. Even with agents in place....

      Becoming a landlord because you've inherited some property makes about as much sense as inheriting several cars and setting up a taxi business.
