We get agent 1 around to have a look. Really like the guy and think he will do a good job, value just above what we were expecting and nice marketing with a reasonable fee 1.25%.
We tell him we have 2 others booked and he reckons one will be lower and the other higher than his valuation.
Agent 2, a bit smarmy and came in lower
Agent 3, nice chap but hideous fixed fee of £6k+. Reckoned on a higher figure than 1
We decide on agent 1 so let them know that evening to come round on Monday to sign us up.
Agent 3 rings to say they have a couple looking for our type of house ready to proceed as nothing to sell. We negotiate a one off viewing contract for Monday (which will be after we sign with Agent 1 !)
Agent 3 rings again to say he has more people wanting to view so wants to do a deal and takes £1500 off his fees. We turn this down saying we are still comitted to sign with Agent 1. He still wants the one off to be £4700+VAT should they buy - money for nothing or what ?!!?
So damn stressful and we haven't signed anything yet !
Let's see what Monday brings
