A Stockport Estate Agent is offering a fixed fee of £1,000 to sell homes under £300,000 and £1,500 for homes over £300,000!
Equity Living Estate Agents based in Cheadle Hulme have introduced new fixed fees and promise a ‘no sale, no fee’ agreement with “no upfront or hidden fees”.
Equity Living, who are part of the Equity Group including Equity Housing, are a Stockport Estate Agent with a difference in that they give their profits back to the community through the Equity Foundation.
A spokesperson at Equity Living said:
“As part of the Equity Group, we are keen to ensure that we offer a first class, professional service that is affordable for everyone. Through our fixed fee our customers know exactly what their outgoing costs are going to be to see their property. We market our properties in the way you would expect, including on rightmove, but the difference is that we invest our profits into our Foundation programme that supports and helps to sustain our local communities”.
The Equity Housing Foundation, works to support community and social enterprises to achieve their ambition for instance:
- Funding projects which reduce health inequalities in Stockport. Through their Health and Wellbeing Programme, they support projects which offer different solutions to health and wellbeing problems and help to increase the overall health of local people.
- Supporting the development of the social enterprise sector as a growing economy. The Equity Foundation programme supports the development of local social enterprises through business coaching, networking and training opportunities and funding to create a package of support to help them thrive.
Through these programmes we aim to create long term impact for communities. In 2017 alone, the Foundation invested more than £110,000into projects, working with 43 different community organisations and social enterprises.
These ranged from youth projects to support young carers to develop their business skills and set up their own enterprises, creative projects which support people experiencing mental health difficulties, through to seed funding to support a parent-led social enterprise to grow.
