The face of Estate Agency has changed dramatically over the past couple of years with the introduction of titles like On-line Estate Agents, Hybrid Estate Agents and, of course, the traditional High Street Estate Agent.
Confusion reigns as to which one of these you choose. We are bombarded with television adverts from online and hybrid Estate Agents - they spend millions on prime-time advertising as they profess NOT to charge commission - so are they a charity?!!! So where do they make their money to feed their extravagant self-promotion?!!! Some on-line Agent's fees, not commission remember, is usually paid up front and this is paid whether they are successful in finding you a buyer or not. They charge a basic fee and an administration fee, if you need them to accompany viewers, there is an extra fee.
Here at Thornes you get a High Street agent/online agent/hybrid agent all in one. We have a showroom in the centre of Llanelli's main commercial street, have an on-line and hybrid presence on the internet. We never ask for fees upfront and if we fail to sell your property you don't pay us a penny!!
Your property will be valued by Director Nick Thorne, a Licensed Estate Agent and a member of the National Association of Estate Agents.
