  • Hi.. depending on the agency most charge a marketing fee upfront plus a % of the sale price plus you will need a home report which varies in price though you can defer the payment on your home report for 9 months hope this helps good luck in selling.

  • The agents marketing fees should be broken down into the various components. If not i would certainly ask them to explain what the 'marketing' charge is for exactly and confirm in writing to you.
