Sell A House Independently With I Am The Agent


Contemplating selling a property is a daunting prospect, especially with such shadows being cast over the housing market. First time sellers or those unsure of the would traditionally go to an estate agent for help rather than contemplating going it alone and selling a property privately. But high street estate agents are renowned for charging high rates in commission and fees. Research by the BBC in 2006 found that the national average for estate agent commission was 1.5%, and with such a volatile and unsteady market these days, the rates are still very expensive. In this age of austerity and internet convenience, more and more prospective sellers are turning to fixed fee estate agents such as I Am The Agent.



I Am The Agent is no commission estate agent which allows customers to bypass the high fees charged by estate agents and simplifies the process of selling a property. With research showing that 80% of buyers start their search for a new house online, a high presence on portals like Right Move is the modern way to market a property and maximise visibility.


For a one-off fee at the beginning of the process, I Am The Agent organizes a comprehensive online presence, including advertising on Right Move, Prime Location, Zoopla and others. They can assist with the best ways to sell a property independently of costly estate agent chains and advise on nearby amenities that should be included in the description, such as schools and supermarkets. A free valuation can be arranged so that sellers know what they should be aiming for in terms of offers. Tips are offered to help present the property in the best possible light, hopefully making a sale easier. All enquiries are also screened by I Am The Agent and convenient viewing times can be arranged for both parties. Liaison with both parties is essential, and the fixed fee estate agency can help with legal matters, contract information and the conveyance process for an additional fee.


It seems to have become general opinion that selling a house independently is time-consuming and difficult. I Am The Agent is ready to dispel this myth with a service which makes selling a house without an expensive estate agent not only doable, but cheaper and more convenient.
