Beckenham based online estate agent, House Tree, has become the first in the UK to announce it will give customers the option to pay no fees when selling a house.

Beckenham based online estate agent, House Tree, has become the first in the UK to announce it will give customers the option to pay no fees when selling a house.
Established in 2011 as a family-owned business to provide home owners with a more cost-effective route to selling their property, House Tree is leading the way with its ‘No fee’ initiative.
Traditionally, high street estate agents and online agents receive a fee when they pass a customer over to a preferred solicitor and/or mortgage broker. The fee can total hundreds of pounds and they regard this as a bonus on top of the fee they charge customers for selling their house.
Rather than charging customers anything, House Tree plans to get paid by the referral fees it receives, saving customers up to 2% of the sale price of their property*.
House Tree CEO, Alan Simpson explains: “We’re just like any other estate agent, we get fees when we refer a customer, but unlike other estate agents, we’re offering to use these fees to cover our payment.
“By using one of our preferred partners to sell their home and purchase their next property, our customers are able to save themselves a significant amount, which could help fund their move or pay for some much-needed work on their new home.
“The fees of our recommended conveyancing solicitor are very competitive** and our mortgage broker is one of the largest independent operators, able to offer 11,000 mortgage deals, from all UK lenders.”
Being an online estate agent, House Tree can offer this product to any UK homeowner, which means that hundreds of thousands of people looking to sell their property every year could be set to benefit from this unique offer.
“As a family owned business we really do understand what matters to our customers and we are proud to have developed an offer which could literally save them thousands.” continues Alan. “We hope that launching this industry leading initiative will help home owners across the country get moving for less and set a precedent for more transparency across the industry.”
