An interesting note and word of caution…..
Watch out for those intermediary property websites that claim they can find you the ‘best agent’.
The truth is, they merely run a portal and a call center where they contact local agents offering them a lead for a property listing in exchange for a minimum 20 per cent of their selling fee.
The consumer then contacts the participating agents, chooses one from the list and is often surprised to learn the agent will be paying a referral fee to the intermediary. Suddenly, the vendor’s confidence in their agent is undermined when they discover the agent is prepared to give up a portion of their fee to obtain a lead and as a result you’re simply being shown the cheapest and most desperate.
As a suggestion, try selling your property yourself.
You know your property better than anyone or any traditional agent and therefore you are most likely the best ‘agent’ you could find.
