If you sell your house with an estate agent, you need to be prepared to pay fees in the region of 3%. But, you also have to remember that this will not be the only cost involved in selling your house. You also need to take into consideration your selling fees, and solicitors costs. These can turn out to be expensive, especially if your selling a property valued under £150,000, as you need to get as much of the equity out of the property as possible.
On top of all of this, estate agents are taking up to 6 months to sell property in the current economic climate. That’s 6 months of paying your mortgage, 6 months of paying the household bills, 6 months of paying insurance. This again all adds up when it comes to selling your home.
If you sell to a house buying company, such as best price paid, you don’t need to pay any fees as we pay them for you. You will also not need to pay any valuation or solicitors fees. These are paid for you.
We can also sell in as little as 7 days, so you won’t be paying your monthly mortgage cost! The downside is, if you want to sell fast, you will need to take a discount on the asking price.
But if you add up all of the long term costs, you will see that quite often you will come out with more even after a discount!
