Our Local Property Experts want to provide you with the very best service, please tell us if you want to...
As your local estate agent our aim is to sell your property for the best possible price to a willing and able buyer that can complete on the purchase within a timescale which is suitable to you.
There are so many different options and types agents to choose from, so where do you start? First it’s important to understand some of the language used by estate agents both traditional and online only, to make sure you are getting the service you expect and paying the fee you want without any nasty suprises.
Sellers should decide, do you want to pay in advance of a sale either by payment up front or a deferred fee or do you want to pay an estate agent for achieving a sale. At Abode we understand how important great online and local marketing is, in attracting interest in our properties. We employ local agents with local knowledge and have taken the decision to only ever charge our customers on completion of a sale. By adopting this model we incentivise our team to sell your property and for the best possible price.

Stamp duty land tax (or Land and Buildings Transaction Tax in Scotland) is a lump-sum tax that anyone buying a property or land costing more than a set amount has to pay.
The rate you'll pay the tax at varies based on the price of the property and the type (we'll focus on residential buildings, rather than commercial).
