Why are high street agents fees hidden?

Online agents are upfront and honest, yet when you ask a high street agent for their fees, they tell you that they will only give this information once you let them come to your home. And then you have to endure a boring half hour hard sell on why they are the best. This is such a dishonest way of doing business.

  • I think this is all about being flexible , estate agents are now willing to discuss fees and may lower them to win your business. If they tell everyone thier fees than the other agents will simply beat them. So they dont like to show their hand. Be careful of agents that over price yoyr home to win your business and charge high commisions. The average estate agent now charges about 1.78%
