“Buyers and Sellers Be Aware”

nationwide advertising on web site

don't have own web-site- only rightmove.co.uk

We put our house on the market early last year by sticking a home-made sign in the garden. We got repeated phone calls from Bairstow Eves saying they had buyers waiting. We were putty in their hands having never before sold a property. We knew our private sale sign was annoying them- they were...

Well here is my story... I have a one bedroom ex local authority flat in london. It was first put on the market in June 2003 for £130K. The first estate agent was crap and did not really do anything to try and sell our flat and then eventually we realised that the selling price was way too high...

They seem to have a number of good properties...

Poor customer service, pushy staff, disorganised.

Ok. My experience of estate agents up until now has been pretty good- but what a comedown. The staff at BE were pushy and abrupt over the phone, "I don't know if you're qualified" (for a mortgage) the Agent said huffily, and put me down for an appointment with their advisors. Well, I wouldn't be...

i have dealt with bairstowe eves on various ocasions and i feel they are not interested in selling houses only selling mortgages legal etc i had very few requirements in my search i wanted a 3 bedroom house for a certain amount not once have i recieved details about any 3 bedroom house the closest i had was 2 bedroom the most stupid a 1 bedroom flat. my sister who is also looking wasn't even allowed to view anything with them because she couldn't get to their office to see the motgage advisor they are worse than useless.

Poor service

bad service

Having used Bairtow Eves to market my property, I would not advise anyone to do the same. Although a buyer was found reasonably quickly, that was all B.E. did. My wife commented "wouldn't it be good if you could hire someone to liaise between buyer, seller, and their solicitors to smooth the...

“BaiRstow Eves”

good promotion

no customer service/prone to tell lies

Totally agree with Englishminx & meldee comments. Will never ever use B>Eves again. I recommend that future sellers try others estate agents and only use B>E as a last resort. When our house was put on the market B>E could not have been more helpful. However once a buyer had been found, thats...

My brother in law has had his house up for sale for 10 months now. No sale as yet which is not too surprising in todays climate. Can anyone explain to me why Bairstow Eves has sent him a bill for £400?

Couple months into the sale (had the property sale agreed at this point). The agent rang me from the branch to "notify me" that...

No advantages of going with B Eves

They have misled me over the contact

I have just encountered a bad experience with Bairstowe eves. I recently put my house for sale with Bairstowe Eves, the rep came round and said it would be a twelve week contract that I would have to sign with them as sole agents and then I was free to go elsewhere after that twelve week period...

Question

what is the fee for bairstow eves to sell my property?
Open question Answer

Answer

I'm sure that Bairstow Eves are like most estate agents in that you can negociate the fee with them. Some agents will go as low as 1% + VAT, but others may try for something higher or a fixed fee . The best thing to do is get 3 valuations (one from a smaller, independent agent) and then play them off against each other so you end up with the best deal....and of course, not forgetting to choose the agent most likely to sell your house quickly!
