At the time of writing this, I have toothache. Real bad toothache. The sort where you can’t sleep and just don’t know what to do with yourself. I need a dentist. The internet can’t help me, googling toothache doesn’t help. I need the help of a professional. An expert in their field and somebody who I know won’t hurt me. It will cost. But it will be worth it for I am in pain.
I used to think dentists were expensive. You might do too. But when you think about it, the years they have trained, the experience they have, the sheer cost of their equipment and costs they have to actually run their business, they probably aren’t as pricey as we think. I’m going to hold that thought for when I pay my bill tomorrow. I’m going to focus on what they have actually done, which hopefully will be to have fixed my tooth! I say this because a client has recently asked me to explain my fees as an estate agent. They asked me what we actually do for our money. Not sarcastically, they genuinely want to know. I decided to write it down. The time we invest even surprised me!
Let’s look at a sale we have recently completed on. I have a chosen a 3 bed semi-detached house in Bowerham. The entire process from beginning to end took 12 weeks.
