Wanting estate agent views on a house purchase?
We are looking to buy a house from the family of a friend who has died. We have been negotiating as a private buyer. They have had a number estate agents to value for probate and to sell in case it didn't work out with us. We have told recently that they want to put it on the market to see what it is worth as nothing comparable has sold recently. It's in a desirable location, but large and needs a full refurb. They have told the estate agents they have a private buyer (us) and if they sold to us they wouldn't pay them any fee's. Would we be better offering through the estate agent so there is a level playing field as feel vulnerable and in competition with an agent. I'm not sure we have much to gain by being a private buyer? We will be selling our property too and it could well be with the same agent. We think it will sell v quickly. Would this be difficult if we were still the private buyer for the other property. How would an agent feel? Can anyone advise what to do please?
