Recently we got into a discussion with a couple of property developers. They had built a few houses and were just about ready to sell. Each house was estimated to be worth around £450,000. We asked about how they were intending to sell the properties, who they were going to sell them with mainly and what the percentage was charged by the estate agent for selling a house. They were going to do what they do every time, ask 3-4 estate agents to come out, value the properties and then pick their favourite. Even though they already knew who they were going to pick. Now before we go more into this, if you want to read our guide on how to sell a property before continuing. It talks about the basics, this guide is purely about selling it without a typical estate agent.
