The London and the UK market is quicker than it’s been for years, properties are selling really fast and UK homeowners are paying more than ever in estate agents’ commission and 2016 won’t be any better! UK Internet Estate Agency is the new trend!
High street estate agents report queues of potential buyers with properties selling through sealed
bids even before a summary brochure’s been made!
They may be having a profitable ride but still agents charge around 1.5-3% percent in commission fees!
In 2016, it costs the average seller £4,700 to sell their property using a high-street estate agent service, plus 20 percent VAT on top of that price! In total, that’s almost £5,700. Agents usually charge a fixed percentage of your home’s value; the higher the property’s value rise the more you pay.
The UK house price growth remained stable during January 2016. Indeed, annual house price growth has remained in a range between 3% and 5% since the summer of 2015!
This rising trend was maintained all January 2016, with property prices up 4.4% over the year, in line with the 4.5% increase registered in December 2015.
UK property price up by 4% since summer 2015 and over 10% percent in London, according to Nationwide, that’s profitable news for high street estate agents but not so good news for vendors.
