I dont think you will find an agent on CDS who charges under 7.5%

They are all a bunch of crooked cowboys and on top of that totally useless. My property was one with the aptly named awful estates since beginning of the year – “apparently” they have shown it 3-4 times in that time with no success.

Now Cluttons are advertising it in SUR, and Viva have shown it at Open Houses, i feel more hopeful but will have to sell at almost the price I bought if for because of the excessive commission charges – 7.5% and tax means you lose best part of 10% of the TOTAL selling price!

Incidentally I bought my new house inland and paid the spanish agent 2% and the seller paid 2%. Which I thought was the law in Spain.?
