Average house seller losing nearly £3,000 in estate agents fees

estate agents fees

According to a recent report published by House Network, the average house hold could save £2,844 on estate agents fees if they opted to sell their property through an online estate agent rather than through the traditional method of a high street estate agent.

Collectively, that’s a saving of £3.5 billion in estate agents fees!

Research conducted by the online group reveal that 68% of UK consumers think that estate agents should charge a flat fee, and just 12% believe that traditional high street agents charge a fair price for the service they provide.

According to data from Rightmove, in the year to March, the average asking price rose by 7.6 per cent to an unprecedented high of £303,190.

With the average high street agent charging 3% of the sale price, 2016 could potentially offer some opportunities for house sellers to making even bigger savings!
