Reply To: Estate agent commissions in Spain – gouging?



Thanks for your input on this question Bert. It’s always good to hear contrasting viewpoints.

I know about the split commissions and about the bloody-minded attitude of vendors. None of this helps. Nevertheless it’s still unacceptable to charge 7.5%+. I’m not having a go at you because I know that you don’t do this.

I don’t have time right now to think about the best way to put this practise under pressure. However I’ll be giving it a lot of thought in future with a view to supporting agents that charge <5% whilst offering a professional service.

In the meantime we agree that buyers should always bring up the question of the agent’s commission.
