We have listed our most commonly asked questions regarding our fixed fee estate agency, and please feel free to contact us should you have any further enquiries.
As property owners we were always deeply frustrated with the cost of selling a property, with all the added extras you don’t initially see such as the Home Report, weekend viewings, the for sale board and marketing costs (on top of the heady sales commission). So we’ve elected to remove the uncertainty and unnecessary costs and build on our strong presence in St Andrews.
We’ve taken the average marketing and commission costs of 5 of our St Andrews competitors, including the average Home Report cost, extra viewing costs, and any other listed costs as well as VAT then compared it to our all in fixed price of £3999 including VAT.
We believe it keeping the process simple and painless as possible for you. By arranging the Home Report on your behalf using trusted local surveyors from reputable national firms, you can rest assured that the job will be done properly and quickly.
No. We are paid upon settlement. If we don’t sell, we don’t get paid.
Although the “fixed price” model is largely associated with our colourful online friend, we are genuinely local with an office in St Andrews and a large property management presence around the East Neuk. We do of course market nationally and internationally through the major portals and our own website.
Our fixed estate agency fee includes: a free Home Report; a For Sale board; free drone photography in addition to professional photography; a 3D virtual tour; a floor plan; a professional drafted advert; listings on Rightmove, Zoopla & St Andrews Property Co website; and a St Andrews-based shopfront with a dedicated local team. Essentially everything relating to selling your property is included up to the point of conveyancing. That’s when the solicitors take over and you will pay them direct.
We market your property on Rightmove, Zoopla, OnTheMarket and our own St Andrews Property Co website. This will cover 97% of the market. We also utilise Facebook and our own email list of interested investors looking to purchase in St Andrews or the East Neuk.
