Estate Agents Fees

Estate Agent Fees are usually around 1.5% + 20% VAT – on an averge price house of £200,000 that works out at £3600, consider that against £29.00 that Visum charge and it’s not hard to see why we are one of the UK’s fastest growing online estate agents

Estate Agent Fees – High Street Agents

Most high street estate agents charge anything from 1% to 2%.  An average fee is 1.5%.  These fees are plus VAT.  The average house price in the UK is some £200,000 – so it’s not hard to see that it can be very costly to sell your house through a high street agent – in fact it would cost £3,600 on averages!

Estate Agents Fees – Most online estate agents

Visum are not the only online estate agent, there are a few others out there, but they all price themselves very similar, either a large up front fee of around £300+VAT or a combination of a smaller upfront fee and an element of commission payable on sale of around 0.5%+VAT – both options require you to either find a good sized sum of money up front or still pay commission on sales.

Estate Agents Fees – Visum

Visum are a unique online estate agent – we charge no large upfront fee and no commission on sale.  We charge £75.00 for the first 4 weeks, which includes us verifying your identity and property ownership status, your property advertised on rightmove, primelocation, zoopla, globrix and all the major portals that generate some 180 million property searches a month.  We then charge just £29.00 for every subsequent 4 weekly to keep your property advertised.  When you consider the average time to sell a property is 42 days you will be laughing all the way to the bank.
