Why Cheap Estate Agents Don't Work
It is common knowledge within the property industry that buyers very seldom make their best offer to a seller represented by a low fee agent. If a seller has chosen a low fee agent they have normally done so for financial reasons and in many cases, low fee estate agents are associated with repossessed properties.
Low fee agents spend more time promoting and marketing their low fees rather than offering creative, innovative marketing solutions to help sell your property. Once you have paid them the next low fee victim is their major priority.
Poorly trained or unskilled property negotiators and valuers. The best people in any industry are seldom attracted to bargain basement operators or commissions only jobs.
Sellers have to regularly call the agent to chase up any marketing progress and viewer feedback on their property and the worst offenders will charge you for these basic services and no one person is dedicated to your file.
Some low fee Estate Agents and the very worst offenders are more interested in advertising their low fees on your Sales Brochure and next to your property on their website rather than promoting your property. This cheap advertising is at your expense and looks pretty ugly and uninviting to prospective purchasers particularly when you are paying to show case your property.
If a low fee Estate Agent can't protect their own fees, do you honestly believe they will be able to protect the selling price of most people's biggest financial asset- your property? Would you pick the cheapest surgeon to perform a heart operation on your child or would you seek out the surgeon with the best reputation?
For Sale Boards advertising low fixed fees on them, sends absolutely the wrong signals to prospective purchasers who may be concerned that sellers may have also chosen low cost fixtures and fittings for their own property.
If low fee agents offered the same expertise and commitment as quality respected agents then the quality agents would not exist.
Why would a low fee Estate Agent fight tooth and nail to help you achieve even a slightly better price for your property when they've already been fully paid for their services?
The bottom line is low fee agents normally end up costing you more money and only the "smart sellers" get it. Unfortunately low fee agents are cheap for a reason just like a cheap car, a cheap holiday, a cheap meal and please don't be fooled by fictitious positive reviews.
It is a proven fact that low fee Estate Agents invite lower offers for properties, by virtue of the fact they regularly encourage sellers to accept lower offers as there is absolutely no financial incentive to do otherwise. Low fee agents will eventually sell your house but you have to ask yourself, at what cost? Don't just take our word for it, ask other respected agents.
