  • In my opinion no, go with only one. Speak to and have valuations from 3 agents who have a good market share in your area of for sale and sold property similar to your own, price it correctly with a pro active agent and your property will sell.

  • I agree that a pro-active agent is what you need, it can lead to confusion having two agents. A good agent will price your house at what it is worth, near to what it will sell for. If you find three agents give you very different valuations, you can bet the lower end is the realistic.

  • In support of the other two respondents, I agree that you should only use one agent but you should choose them carefully and select from a range of them. You should look at how they market the homes (photographs and descriptions), and how widely the home is marketed on the web. For instance, we advertise our homes on 25 websites and the local press, some others only use one website. Meeting with the agent should give you a feeling of confidence, so again it is worth talking to a few of them until you find one you can trust. The valuation is important but be aware of the estate agent who deliberately over values your home to win your instruction, some estate agents' fees are based on the initial valuation not the actual selling price. Finally the fees can vary from as low as 0.4% (our fees) to as high as 2%.from other agents on the market. Some others may charge a fixed fee. If you feel we can help in any way please contact us.
