Complete spells out the benefits of using a self-employed agent


Thinking of selling your house? Your most valuable asset. Complete looks at the reasons you should choose a self-employed estate agent, over an employed agent.

Employed estate agents:

Many estate agencies have employees who are paid the same at the end of the month whether they sell any houses or not.

They have no incentive to sell a house or achieve the best possible price.

If a house doesn’t sell, or the service given is poor and the seller takes their house off the market, it doesn’t affect the employee - they will still get paid at the end of the month.

To these employees it is just a job and when it gets to 5.30pm they switch off.

Self employed estate agents:

The best agents are all self-employed associates. They are effectively business owners and only get paid on results.

Associates are running their own business, and not only want to sell your home and achieve the best possible price, they will provide the best customer service so that you use their services again in the future and recommend them to your family and friends.

They are highly motivated and work hours to suit buyers and sellers.

This isn’t just a job to them, this is their business.

Accordingly they are committed and determined to find a buyer, achieve the best possible price, and offer excellent customer service.
