For Sale Board
House Fox offer two packages:
• A No Sale, No Fee fee structure, coming in at £2,390
• A Split Fee fee structure, where you pay £695 up-front once your property is on the market and then another £695 on successful commission, for a total of £1,390. There are savings to be had here if you're sure your property will sell, at the downside of paying £695 up front (which applies whether your property sells or not).
House Fox don't charge for any add-ons, such as boards, and although they don't promote themselves as such, their services are effectively that of a hybrid agent: they offer accompanied viewings, and everything else you'd expect from a high-street agent. They just lack the physical office.
There are no notable drawbacks with using House Fox. You are no expected or obligated to have them arrange your mortgage, or expected to make use of their conveyancing services.
