Why don't agents tell you over the phone what percentage they take on sale?
I am so fed up of the secrecy around agents charges, they hold you to ransom over that one detail, to get in your door and give you the hard sell. After using two terrible agents who shall remain nameless, and being promised all sorts, I’m fed up of being led down the garden path. They say there is a waiting list of potential buyers for my property, that it is sought after and properties like mine are achieving good prices etc etc etc. I wanted to find another agent who would be honest with me. Two agents have given me the hard sell, I have been under two contracts and both pester me to get me to reduce price. Both agents never returned phone calls, both agents did very little in my opinion to justify why they should get such a high fee at the end should my property have sold. I ask agents a simple question, what percentage do you take, they won't answer the question, so they prove in an instant they are untrustworthy and want to get in my property and give me yet another heap of spiel. I am sick of it, anyone else sick of this? Why do they do it? No wonder they get such a bad rep! Reduce price is about the only thing they can be bothered to say to you. Yet they value your property above and beyond what they know it will sell for. Where do you find an agent who takes a small percentage of 1% or less, and gives you good service with honesty thrown in?
