Advantages: High valuation
Disadvantages: Over pricing
I am currently trying to sell my house. Halifax came and gave me a high valuation, I was really pleased and placed the sale sole agency with them. However, they wouldnt negiate the fees or 12 week minimum period saying this was the best deal including all discounts. They said they would definitely sell the house at the price, so I thought I would be able to afford the higher than expected fees, as the valuation was higher than I thought.
Not having bought/sold for 15 years I was very naive. I now realise that they over-priced the house so I would place the business with them. Now they say I must reduce the price for a sale, so I would have been better off going with another agent who gave me a realistic sale price, and a better deal.
We are only in week 4, how do I get out of this contract, as I have another 8 weeks? Does anyone know????
