ESTATE AGENTS PORTSMOUTH
It makes sense to choose a local estate agent rather than a national or regional one, as they have more experience in the local market place of selling homes similar to yours.
- When getting valuations from different agents, bear in mind the highest figure may not be the most realistic.
- Check the terms and conditions - charges and other conditions may vary quite widely from one estate agent to another.
- Find out exactly what you're paying for, how and where the agent will advertise your property.
- You may be able to negotiate fees, most agents charge a standard fee based on a percentage of the selling price, but try and negotiate the best deal.
- Agree a maximum selling time. If you're happy with the service provided, you can always extend the time period, if not, you can change agents when the agreed time has elapsed.
- Try and choose an agent you like, selling a house can be a long process, so it's important you get on.

TYPES OF ESTATE AGENCY AGGREEMENTS
Under the more common sole agent agreement, the firm can only claim a fee if they introduce the buyer. Under this agreement you can still market the property privately through a sign in your window, a notice in the newsagent or through the internet.
A joint agency agreement means you can employ several agents. They will charge a higher fee for this and they may not work as hard knowing a rival might grasp the sale away from them. The trick is to employ as many agents as possible. Only the one who introduces the eventual buyer can claim a fee.
ESTATE AGENTS PROFESSIONAL BODIES
Look for members of The National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA). The NAEA works to a voluntary code of practice.
If you have a problem with your estate agent then contact the Ombudsman for Estate Agents (OEA), which gives buyers and sellers improved access to redress in the event of a dispute with an agent.
