You can ALWAYS negotiate!
(If they tell you that it’s non-negotiable, it’s probably a good idea to find a different estate agent to work with.)

At K&G Lettings Limited, we’ve been buying and selling property for quite some time in Goole, Hull, Skegness, Yorkshire & Lincolnshire… and so we’re quite familiar with this process.
In fact, here are things you can use as leverage to negotiate with your agent!
If your home is in a very desirable neighborhood and/or if it’s in the ideal price-point for buyers, then it’ll probably sell fast. And that means you might be able to negotiate a lower fee since the agent’s job is going to be easy.
The more money that your house is worth, the more that the estate agent stands to make, even if they have a slightly lower commission. So if your home is quite high-value, then it’s worth asking the agent if they can take a slightly lower fee.
Time Of Year
When you sell your home also makes a difference. If you sell when homes sell easily (summer), then you can probably negotiate a better fee. If you sell when homes don’t sell easily (winter), then you don’t really have leverage to ask for a lower fee.
Hope that helps! And if you’d rather sell your house as-is, fast, for a fair cash price, give us a call on 01482 961961! We can complete in as little as two weeks and in certain circumstance, we’ll pay all fees association with the sale!
