Proud to support Cancer Research

December 6, 2018

We’re turning pink this winter

As part of our charity work, we are proud to support Cancer Research UK this winter. During December 2018 and January 2019 we will donate £100 for every property listed by House Fox.*

House Fox is well known in North Somerset for its fundraising activities, and support of local schools and sports teams. In addition to our long term association with the Bone Cancer Trust we will be donating 16% of our marketing fee for every house, flat and apartment listed by us during the December – January period to Cancer Research UK when the marketing fee is paid at the time of listing.
Cancer Research UK are working to make real improvements in the lives of those affected by the disease. The charity’s pioneering work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer has helped save millions of lives. Over the past 40 years survival has doubled, thanks to the great progress research has made.

House Fox is one of the rising stars in North Somerset estate agency circles. Our “fairer fees” policy for a full estate agency service at online prices is proving very popular with our customers and property buyers alike. So much so that we have been voted  Trustpilot’s number one estate agent in both Weston-super-Mare and in Portishead. With 5-star reviews across the board.

Not all estate agents offer the same service

Most High Street agencies will do everything you’d expect in order to market your home professionally and manage the whole process through to completion.

That means providing expert local knowledge on what your home can fetch, advertising in local papers and marketing through one or two of the main property search sites, conducting accompanied viewings, and acting on your behalf to negotiate the best price.

With the right agent, it makes for a good service… but most will typically charge around 1.25% (plus VAT) for the privilege.

That’s around £2,250 for a £150,000 property, soaring to £4,500 for a £300,000 home and a whopping £7,500 for a £500,000 one.

Of course, you could strip that cost right back by using a purely online estate agency.

However, you probably won’t get a local expert pricing your property. They won’t undertake the critical job of accompanying viewings without charging a premium. And they’ll leave negotiating the price to you too.

That leaves YOU responsible for the most important parts of the deal – which could make a difference of thousands to the eventual sale price.

Move over to a different way to sell your home

Fortunately, if you live in North Somerset, you don’t have to make the choice between a full estate agency service and a low, fixed fee.
