Savings when buying/selling houses

We saved £300 by asking our estate agent to drop their fee when they sold our house. Without reading MSE, I wouldn't have even crossed my mind to ask them to drop their fee. As second-time-buyers (so first-time-sellers, if you see what I mean), the thread on selling houses was really useful.

I don't know exactly how much we've saved by shopping around for buildings/contents insurance but we've just managed to insure our 3-bed detached house for less than we paid for buildings/contents insurance on our old 2-bed semi. Bargain! Back when we were naive first time buyers, we bought insurance from our mortgage provider. :eek: Not any more!
