Excellent value for money - I can't see why you'd pay up to five times as much for a traditional agent.

I was looking at a property with paddocks advertised. Needed to know acreage as I have horses and needed to know if the paddocks advertised were big enough for 3 horses. Kept emailing purple bricks asking for this info (which is normally given on any property details), all I kept getting back was an automated reply saying I had to arrange a viewing. A viewing would have been a complete waste of time for us and the buyer if the paddocks were not big enough, so I just gave up in the end!! Ju ...

Hi Sorry to hear that. I think the business model of "we get paid our fee regardless of whether actually get your house sold" is likely the issue. I come from the US and the commissions estate agents charge are much higher than here, but they do a lot more for the money, are much hungrier and they get nothing if the house doesn't sell. I know people in the UK feel the 1.5% or whatever commission is very high, but you tend to get what you pay for. ...
