Having read a recent article highlighting estate agents fees in Britain are amongst the best value anywhere in the world, it really got me excited! I know that for most people they will laugh but when I have been saying this for as long as I have been in this industry, it is nice to know that I am right.
The article highlights how other countries readily charge between 3 and 6% selling fees and some even as high as 10%! In Britain, agents fees range from 1.25% - 2.75% which is quite a staggering difference from our international counterparts.
There are two obvious areas to consider in relation to this; firstly, the house price will be higher in Britain than some countries, which could mean the amount actually paid for a service may not be that different. Secondly and most importantly, the service that is provided will vary. Whether it is due to multiple agents marketing or the involvement from an individual agent and the extent to which their service extends.
I am fully aware that at Bradleys we have always been exceptionally good value for money. As our ranking on the independent estate agency review website www.allAgents.co.uk highlights, our focus at Bradleys is all about customer service. We tailor a package to suit the client’s needs and alongside that are varying packages with related fee options. The most popular package tends to be our top of the range All Inclusive Fee Package, which covers all aspects of a clients’ sale including upgraded marketing. At the other end of the scale we have had a recent upsurge in vendors requesting the modern method of selling via Bradleys online auctions available at only £495 plus VAT.
I can't compare our service with our international counterparts but I can confidently say that at Bradleys understanding the clients’ needs and requirements and then being able to offer a package that suits the clients’ works superbly well. I would suggest that if you are thinking of moving, check the allAgents website to see who delivers the service they say they will and then contact Bradleys Customer Services on 01395 224800 until 10pm during the week and 6pm at weekends, to arrange a free valuation. Our rates are highly competitive and you will experience a top quality customer service.
