Most of the time we have people complaining about unprofessional estate agents and yet when an agent offers a professional service all of a sudden 'its a rip off'. You get what you pay for. If you want to go with some guy with a laptop and a mobile phone who will vanish once you've paid his fee, knock yourself out. If you want to go with a professional agency, you should be prepared to pay a little.

In my experience there isnt really a set figure as a percentage unless you ask

Just say to the agent or whoever the price you will accept clear or the price you want to pay clear if you are buying.........and thats the end of it they then need to work around that figure for their commision and you get the figure you ask for provided there is a buyer.

What they make or dont make is irrelevant.

On what basis do you make this statement if you are new to Bulgaria

I have been dealing with Bulgarian properties for over a decade and they have helped me with all sorts of matters not just property

gangsters? I dont think so.sharp perhaps... but not gangsters.

Re. Bulgarian Properties. Yes, their services can be expensive, but "you get what you pay for". The same can be said for top-brand companies in the UK or anywhere else in the world. Shop around for the cheapest price if you prefer, but for a professional service and peace of mind - as has been my experience with them, BG Properties are hard to beat.

In defence of BulgarianProperties.com we recently sold our beach apartment near Varna through them, having placed it with 3 other agents. Only one other agent bothered to keep in touch (to ask if it was still for sale - after nearly 3 years); the others produced nothing.
3,000 euros is a bit expensive if your property is a cheap village house, but we were happy to pay their commission, simply because they got us a buyer!
In short: 2.5% of a non-sale proved to be zero, whereas 3k€, which was about 4.5%, released our capital and moved us forward.
They handled our sale in a most professional, fastidious, and friendly way too, which made the whole thing as pleasant as these things can be.
Incidentally the buyers were present at the various stages of the transaction once the preliminary contract had been signed, and they paid no charges to the REA, so at least in our instance we had no reason to suspect any double charging.
