One of the most frequently asked questions we are asked is ‘What are the costs involved in selling a property?
Here at Arden, we do our best to keep costs down without compromising our core beliefs when it comes to quality marketing, presentation, and general service.
Our aim is to keep things simple, straight to point and fair so you can work out if our service is going to be a good fit for you.
Costs for selling a property
When selling a property there are three costs involved:
• Selling Fee (Estate Agent)
• Conveyancing Fee (Selling)
• Energy Performance Certificate (If needed)
Here are those fees explained:
Sales fee & conditions
We don’t charge anything upfront for marketing, as we believe in a results-based system, so your fee is paid at the end of the process on completion of your sale.
You won’t be tied into a long contract as we work on a monthly, rolling agreement, giving you freedom and flexibility to adjust your strategy if you need to.
Our general pricing strategy is that we charge 1% plus VAT of the sale price, payable only on successful completion.
If you have any questions about costs or fees, please do call us, we are always open to talk and are flexible. We are fair and want you to feel comfortable with things.
Some Recently Sold Properties
If you change your mind and choose not to sell after the initial marketing has been completed, then although we will not charge you our sales fee, we do charge a nominal £250 plus VAT to cover our photography and admin costs. If, at a later date you wish to relist your property for sale then the £250 plus VAT you paid will be refunded by way of a reduction on your sales fee.
Energy Performance Certificate
By law in order to market your property for sale it must have a valid EPC. If you need an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) then we can arrange this for you on the day of the photos at a standard charge of £100 plus VAT.
