So, selling entails no fees

I went along to the Estate Agents' office and walked in.

Inside were two fashionably dressed, chic looking people, one man, one woman. We greeted each other and then looked expectantly round the group.

"So, we have this property project"

"Come and sit down. Now the first thing to do is for us to come and value your house..."

Not so fast young man! I thought...

"First, what are the fees involved in selling: taxes, charges, etc..."

"There are none. You have to pay about 500€ to get the dossier done, then all the rest is paid by the buyer."

"OK, so far so good. Give me your card and I'll phone you, perhaps next week."
