Sales Fees

As you can see, there is no such thing as a ‘standard service’ and we are always flexible in our approach. This also applies to our fees. On a sole agency basis, our standard fees are very competitive at 0.75% of the sale price or 1.5% in competition with other agents (please note that vat is chargeable on estate agents’ fees). However, we regularly tailor our fee structure at our client’s request. We are happy to operate on sliding scales linked to achieving agreed price expectations or to offer a fixed fee rather than a percentage, if this is a preference. Unlike the online only agents who charge for purely listing your property, we operate on a ‘no sale- no fee basis’. This is because we think owners prefer their agent to be fully incentivised to actually sell their property. We are also happy to delay payment until the completion of your sale. Ultimately, we want our clients to feel that the service they received was not only exceptional but also represented great value for money. This way we are far more likely to be recommended.

"Griffin Stevens are a really good and honest estate agency. We can't recommend them more highly! Moving house is a stressful process, however "stressful" does not even begin to express how upsetting the process was, that we went through, with a well known high street agency in Hampton before Griffin Stevens took over looking after the sale of our property. After 16 weeks of getting nowhere and being given very poor advice, .. that mainly being to reduce and reduce and reduce our price, ...(£200K between their high valuation and the price they tried to push us into taking offers) .... we spoke to Andrew Griffin from Griffin Stevens. Andrew spent a long time listening to and understanding our exasperation. He spoke very clearly and honestly about local property value and backed it up with evidence. He gave us very clear advice about what our house should sell for and what it should be marketed at, and he gave us very clear ideas about how to present our house to create maximum impact, and in particular how to show the double bedrooms off to their best. We met Andrew's team, all of whom have at least 10 years experience each as estate agents. Within 2 weeks of being on the market with Griffin Stevens we had 4 offers, all higher than the best offer we'd had with the other agent. We exchanged on Friday... and with Griffin Stevens fee being just 0.75% (as opposed to 1.8%) we are much better off and much happier than we would have been with the other one! Griffin Stevens are honest, and at the end of the day why would you place your most valuable asset in the hands of anyone other than experienced, honest people who actually do have your best interest at heart... as opposed to other agents who's only real interest is to achieve their own target driven needs, ... without a care that their needs have a massive £cost impact on you. A massive thank you to Griffin Stevens from the Vincents of Hampton!"
