Asking the right questions.

Posted on Wednesday, August 29, 2018

A Question to any home movers thinking of selling their property… 

When you consider which agent to employ to sell your home, is your main question

  1. How much is your fee? or; 
  2. How much will you get for my home? 

 

Asking the right questions is paramount to ensuring you employ the BEST agent for the task in hand. 

Purely choosing an agent based on the fee alone could ultimately cost you more in the long run.

For instance, we know that many online companies, some famous ones, charge very little and on paper it seems incredible, the same with some local agents but according to their own websites & in general the national average, these agents achieve offers in the region of 97-98% of the asking price. 

In comparison, we at The Property Cloud achieved in August alone an average of 100.82% of the asking price, in monetary terms on the average house price in the UK of £301,973*, this equates to an extra £2,476.17p in your back pocket and in comparison to the national average or the cheap online companies, when using The Property Cloud you would be £8,515.63p better off. How good is that!  

So back to the morale of the story, the cheapest agent isn’t always the best value. The value is in the work that the agent is putting in to get you the best sale price. 

If you would like any advice on moving or preparing your house for sale, to help you achieve the best sale price. Do get in touch, I would love to help.
